Join Scott Onstott for an in-depth discussion in this video Modeling the base by revolving a profile, part of AutoCAD 2013: 3D.
In this lesson you will model the base of the column. …Open the Column 7 project file. This object has rotational symmetry. …So the approach will be to sketch one side of it. …This will be the profile. And then we will revolve the profile to …create the surface of the base. Go in to the top view, and zoom in to the …base area. This appears to be composed of three arcs.…
Let's approximate that by drawing a circle. …I'm just going to estimate it here by Clicking where I think the center of the …circle might be, and then I'll click again to represent that curve. …Then use Copy, and copy the circle that you just drew from its top quadrant down, …and then copy a third circle down below. Now if you don't think your circles are …quite large enough, you can scale them all together.…
Click Scale, select all three, Enter, and scale them from the top quadrant. …Then use the Reference option. Click the first point of the reference …line at the same point here at the top quadrant. …Click the second point of the reference line here at the bottom quadrant, and now …
