In this video, learn about the shell command and why it is useful and required in plastics design as well as metal casting. Next, learn how to use the shell feature.
- [Tutor] So now, let's take a quick look … at using the shell command … and a few different thickness inspection tools. … The shell command is used to create … a part of uniform wall thickness, … which is very useful … in plastics injection molded parts … as well as metal castings … to help avoid warp and distortion. … So, I can jump right into my shell command, … search my modified tools, … and there we have shell. … In the shell tool we have a few options to run through. … First very important, … the faces or body I would like to select. … And this is an important distinction here … because we can either select faces or an entire body. … So, let's start by just trying to select … the entire body here. … And if I select this. … And then I want to define some inside wall thickness. … So, I'm going to have a thickness … of let's say three millimeters there. … And if I'm happy with that, … I'll keep the direction inside and say, okay. … Now, it looks like not much has happened here. … I can't really see any change that was made, …
