Presentation Transcript

  1. Work Points, Work Axes,and Work Planes

  2. Work Points • Work point • Independent entity • Location is defined in space • May be placed or projected onto part faces, linear edges, or onto an arc or circle • Can be constrained to center points of arcs, circles, and ellipses

  3. Work Axis • Work axis • Line extending forever in two directions • Useful for locating the center of a hole or cylinder • Used to create revolved features • May be constrained in assembly models

  4. Work Axis Through Two Points • Initiate a work axis • Select two points on an object • Points may be existing corners or midpoints

  5. Work Planes • Work planes • Continuous two-dimensional planes • Can be used to establish sketch planes • Assembly constraints can also be applied to work planes

  6. Applying Work Planes • Work plane can be placed on an existing part face • Work plane feature is initiated • Surface is selected

  7. Offsetting a Work Plane • Initiate work plane feature • Click, hold, and drag the cursor on an existing flat part surface • Identify desired offset distance

  8. Attaching a Sketch Plane • Create sketch plane and sketch geometry

  9. Angled Work Planes • Initiate work plane • Click on an EDGE • Select reference surface • Enter angle • Rotate angle CCW from reference surface

  10. Angled Work Planes • Angled work plane may be established by selecting two parallel EDGES

  11. Angled Work Planes • Angled work plane may also be established by selecting three corners or midpoints on an existing object(s)

  12. Tangent Work Planes • Select cylindrical surface close to area where work plane should be tangent • Identify original plane in origin folder that the new work plane should be parallel to

  13. Work Planes Through a Cylinder • Initiate a work axis • Select cylinder’s curved surface for placement • Initiate a work plane • Select work axis in cylinder • Select principle plane in origin folder and enter reference angle

  14. Work Planes Through a Cylinder • Initiate a work axis • Place it by selecting cylinder’s curved surface • Initiate work plane • Select work axis in cylinder • Select a principle plane in the origin folder and enter a reference angle

  15. Work Planes Between Work Planes • Create work plane through two parallel edges • Offset second work plane an appropriate distance away • Create third work plane between the first two by selecting both in any order
