But I don't get it. I could even probe it and create a point cloud of a short length of this. But that is not the smart way to do this.
(And all you 12 year olds can start snickering at all the double entendres - wait you've already started.) Now that I've insulted the twelve year olds that know how to do this let me grovel and apologize. I have version 4.514 of aspire and use the 2.5 processes fluently.
More detail - the finished product - I need a 3% draft on each side to aid in getting the part out of the mold. This part is a side rail 2" high, rounded over on top (1/4" radius but not real important), about 1.2" wide at the base (which in the female would be at the top) and 1" at the bottom where the 1/4" radius rounded over part starts. And it goes straight for 6 feet. I should be able to do this but I just can't get it. My component wants to go in y direction not x,
So I need help. Or someone who wants some bucks in their PayPal account. I'd rather learn how but I'm losing big on the time I've invested in this and I have to move on. I could use the existing side rail as a mold but then I get all the nicks and dents too.
Teach me or I'll pay - either way, gotta get it done for the weekend.
Thanks - I think this is my first post so, Howdy!
I've watched the tutorials, but I just don't get it. I want to create a female mold that I can use to make male pieces out of fiberglass. I can draw the end of the profile. I'd like to extend this profile along a 6 foot straight line and generate machine code (shopbot) to cut this. It seems like the easiest of processes.
