Join Leon van den Heever for an in-depth discussion in this video Building the details of the connecting rod, part of Modeling a Motorcycle Engine with SOLIDWORKS.
- Let's continue with our cone rod design.…And I changed the view orientation to a bottom view.…And start a new sketch…on the right, flat, bottom face.…Select the center point slot command.…And from the origin sketch I slot something like this.…We will use the flip side of the slot,…to cut around into the sides of our model.…Now zoom in to this area to make it easier to select.…And make this vertex and the slot arc…coincident to each other.…
Next control, select the top line of the slot,…and the underlying circle edge,…and make them co-linear to each other.…And from this we can do an extruded cut command.…Let's use a through-all and condition.…And make sure to select the…"Flip side to cut" option.…And go ahead and complete the command.…Let's start another sketch on the same face.…This time sketch a circle.…
And do this on both flat faces.…Let's make them equal to each other.…And also add a horizontal relation…between the circle centers.…And also a horizontal relation between…one of the centers and the origin.…Sketch a center line vertically from the origin.…
