This is what I have done, please could you advise on my errors
I have a 5 blade item that has pockets on each blade. The pockets for each blade are not the same, but very similar and related.
I have put all 5 sketches on blade 1 so that I can constrain them in relation to sketch 1 and any modifications and transfered to all the sketches.
From there I use derived sketches to transfer the appropriate sketch to corresponding blade Blades 2, 3 & 5 work, no problem.
But on blade 4 the derived sketch is mirrored and in open space between blades 1 & 2.
just make a mirror of your base sketch and use that for derived sketch
I was hoping that this wasn't the solution. Just makes the whole part a bit messy. My limited experience with SW is that most things work pretty easy. this one of those things that doesn't.
To follow on from this now:All suggestions appreciated
I need to make Ø19mm x 11mm deep pockets at each of the circles. The thing is they are not flat to the face but at 12° and the orientation follows the curve around the corner. So the pocket closest to the body is 12° facing forward along the body and the last pocket's orientation is perpendicular to the first pocket. 12° @ 90° to the body.
How do I keep this operation as simple as possible?
