I have several pipes drawn together in Frame. There is a Y-pipe section, so there is a cutout needed there.
In Dutch we call it a Pijp uitslag, I cannot find a English word for it. So here goes:
I have two Y-pipe connections, there are 2 pipes that have a cutout that follows the rounding of the pipe.
For an idea, see the image below.
How do I create a pipe cutout drawing like this:
I cannot find anything else.
Hope one of you can help me.
See the PDF file for some dimensions.
Imics is close, you must watch out as a notch at any angle other than 90° to mating tube uses both the I.D. and O.D. faces as mating surfaces. You must trim to both of those to create a true normal to surface tube, especially if laser cutting. If you need to flatten for printing fullsize or possibly a plasma or laser that needs a flat pattern than continue with a small .001 cut and convert to sheetmetal, (be sure neutral factor is 1 ) then flatten like any other sheetmetal part.
Here's a video showing a frame type notch being converted to "nromal to surface" edges.
The request was made at SEU round table to enhance the part enviroment to include a "normal to surface" cut, specifically for tubing/pipe.
