Mill Advanced Exercise #3

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Your 2d drawing is not correct, see the attached photo. The correct drawing is in RED and yours is in BLUE. 

The handle is created by creating arcs. The upper arc (5.5" Radius) is created using Arc Polar. Set the Radius to 5.5" and select the center of the Radius shown at the intersection of 6.75" in X and 4.375" down in Y for the center of the arc. Then create a 0.25" fillet between this arc and the horizontal line. Set the angles to 140 (Start) and 180 (Finish). Then create the lower 9.675 radius arc using the Arc Tangent command, have the method set to Arc One Point and set the radius to 9.675. Select the 5.5" arc created above as the tangetnt arc and then select the lower intersection of 0.75" in X and 6.0" down in Y as the point. Then select the arc you want to keep. Then trim the 5.5" arc to the 9.675" arc. Then create the 2.5" arc using Arc Polar again. Once you get this trimmed properly do an offset to create the other side of the handle.

You have a duplicate line in your file as well.

All of these techniques are shown in the Mill Advanced Tutorial 3, I assume this is an assignment for a college course if you do not have access to the tutorial?

Hello Sir,

Thank you so much for helping me. This is not for college classes. I do it to kill time because of the current event. I understand how to do it now.

If it is not for a college class where did you get the exercise 3 from?
