Join Leon van den Heever for an in-depth discussion in this video Detailing the piston, part of Modeling a Motorcycle Engine with SOLIDWORKS.
- Continuing on with our piston model,…let's go ahead and add a reference plane…to the bottom shelled face of the model.…Let's set this to a distance of two millimeters upward…and ok to complete the command.…You can resize the reference plane if you like,…and we'll use this for a numbers of ribs…and the bearings support as well.…Now start a new sketch on the reference plane.…We'll do a normal to,…and let's sketch a center line vertically.…
Sketch a centerpoint rectangle,…and then we'll sketch two vertical lines in the rectangle.…One on the left, and the other on the right.…Add a dimension of 49 millimeters…to the right vertical line.…Make the distance between…the two right vertical lines 22.5 millimeters,…and from the origin to the first right vertical line…we'll make this 17 millimeters.…
Make these three lines symmetrical,…and then let's trim out these three horizontal lines.…Do an extruded boss to the top, inside face of the model,…and ok to complete the command.…Now start another sketch on the reference plane.…
