In this lesson, 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.
- [Instructor] Now let's take a quick look … at using the shell command … and a few different thickness inspection tools. … So, the shell command is use to create a part … of uniform wall thickness … which 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 Modify Tools here … and here I'll find Shell. … And there's a few options or properties … to choose from in Shell. … First, you can select a face or a body … and that's a pretty important distinction, … so if I just hover over here it's saying select any faces … to remove or a body to shell, … so you have to be careful here. … If was to just grab maybe the whole body here, … notice my whole body is highlighting, … so I'm just going to select on this first. … And I'm going to say I want to shell this out … such that I have a uniform wall thickness … of let's say three millimeters or so. … Notice even in the preview, … it looks like nothing's really happening. …
