In this video, learn how to create complex surfaces from using two or more section curves or using guide curves.
- [Instructor] In this exercise,…we're going to be creating a sheet metal bracket.…We have a start part.…We need you to open up that start part…from the reference documentation that you pulled down…and that file is SM_Bracket.…First thing I want you to do…is of into File, Save As, once you have it open,…and save that bracket out.…Just go ahead and give it an initial at the end it.…Now that I have my bracket saved,…I'm going to go ahead and create my initial slab surfaces.…So, that said, I want to make sure…that the operations geometrical set…is my active or in work object set,…so as I begin creating my surfaces,…they go directly into that geometrically set.…
I'm going to create my extrude.…I'm going to double click on it…because I'm going to use it a couple of times.…I'm going to select my first sketch…and drag this out.…Make it fairly large.…We're making what's called slab surfaces or block surfaces.…We want to make these bigger than the actual part…'cause we're going to come back and split things away…and shape fillet things away,…
