Can anyone help me please. I am trying to manufacture a plait roller as in the photos.

I have the blank model but I can not seem to get it to cut the helical teeth!

Doing my head in now!

Any help would be great.

Hi @astrixkid

Hope this is what You expected and I think that all values and numbers could be changed easily

Hi Wolfgang,

Thank you for your help.

I have now used your information to redraw the model to my specifications.

When I try to toggle the construction I can not get it to work?

Please see screen shot attached.

I have also sent the part to see if I am going wrong somewhere.

 

Thank you again for your help.

 

regards

Hi @astrixkid

 

 

 

I think You have missed to create new bodies for the tools!

 

And this was my failure since I haven't shown this in my video.

Sorry!

 

Here is a picture showing the button fro "Add Body"

Do this for every body of the two tools.

Then it will be no problem to convert them into Construction Bodies

 

 

Again, apologize for my lacking of information.

Hi Wolfgang,
I have tried but I can not get it to work.
I seem to be selecting the entire model then the add body button will not work?

Hi @astrixkid

 

 

 

You first have to create a new Body using the Add Body command and then You have to build the rotational protrusions

 

If You look into the example part You will see that there are 3 bodies.

 

Additionally take a look into the tutorial about Multibody Design spse1537

Hi @astrixkid

 

 

 

 

I have taken a video from the important part of the modeling.

You see, that I first create a new body called "Tool_01".

When doing so, the base body gets transparent, indicating that it no longer is the active body.

Then create the Revolve feature.

 

Change back to the base body as Active Body and do the Solid Sweep Cutout

 

Hope this helps

Hi Wolfgang:

 

That is a wonderful example of using Solid Sweep.
