Hello,

 

Does anyone know how to knurl a cylindrical surface?

 

I'm using Solid Edge ST9 an I'm in Synchronous mode.

 

Thanks,

Hi @floresma

 

due to my non native English backround,
can You explain a little more in detail what You are trying to achieve?

 

Thanks!

@hawcad Knurl is the term used for the diamond pattern (or other) texture applied for grip enhancement.   Typically applied by a pressing tool while the part is rotated in a lathe.

 

@floresma   there are 2 approaches based on your need.

1.) preferred (IMO),  do a split surface and simply add texture to the draft and use a call out to annotate the Knurling. 

2.) Create a helical cut and pattern.  will need to do so CW and CCW.

Hi @MattJohnson_PG

 

 

thanks for clarifying and Yes 100% with You that the usage of a texture onto the cylinder surface is IMHO the easiest and fastet way to show that.

 

Gracy point about this issue:

I just explained that last week to a customer asking me exactly that question - but not in Englsih!

My thoughts went into the "twist" direction rather than "knurl"

 

 

Thanks

Thanks for the feedback everyone.

Does anyone know of a good resource with instructions on how to work with cylindrical surfaces?

Hi there @floresma,

 

Is this "texture" version enough, for what you want to do?

Hi @SeanCresswell

Hi @floresma

 

 

 

and if You give the texture a structure too (using the same picture in black/white/grey) You even will get a more realistic 3D feeling with a high quality view.

Absolutely @hawcad...., it is ALL about the quality of the image used for the texture, in order for it to be suitable for the task.

That particular texture was the only one I had available, as used for a custom bronze fastener we produce here. Just enough visual information for manufacture. Robot Happy

What do you mean by structure?
