Join Gabriel Corbett for an in-depth discussion in this video Making a thickened cut, part of SOLIDWORKS: Surfacing.
- The thickened cut tool is very, very similar…to the cut with surface tool, however,…instead of just cutting all of the model away…it only cuts a certain thickness or pathway…of where that surface was.…To use that tool go ahead and click on Thickened Cut…and choose what surface we want to use.…I want to use that one right there.…And then I can choose which direction I want to go in…by either going this way, so let's bring it down, down here.…I can go midplane or back up to the top.…Now I can choose the thickness or the thickness of the cut…and right there then I can click on Ok,…and it's going to ask me do I want to keep…both of these bodies or do I want to select…which body I want to keep?…I can keep one of them, both of them, or none of them.…
So go up to solid bodies click on Ok…and you can see I have both bodies now.…If you go under the Solid Bodies folder here…I can see both of them.…I can show and hide them at will,…and again this is a very cool tool…if you want to make some type of a pathway…through a solid model with a surface,…
