In continuation of SolidWorks practical trainings, in this post, you will learn the video tutorial of making a double-walled glass step by step. SolidWorks is an ideal 3D object-building software.
A Double Glazed Glass, In this tutorial you will learn how to use the following instructions.
– Insert photo
– Change transparency
– Edge construction
Open a new part in millimeters
New SolidWorks Part: Create a 2D design. Selecting the front plan in the tree command in the left menu and creating a simple layout by clicking on the two-dimensional layout icon – the display changes and the front plan appears.
Insert a reference image.
For this tutorial, we used a photo of a glass to get the best possible design. Download the photo here and save it in the SolidWorks folder.
Go to Tools> Sketch Tools> Sketch Picture
Navigate to your map folder and select the photo “SIDEVIEW_BODUM_GLASS. Click open. You can change the size and position of the photo in the image. In the Transparency tab, select ‘full image’; And change the sharpness of the image to 0.50. Click ok in SolidWorks. Click the Sketch button in the upper right corner.
Create another 2d sketch image
Create another two-dimensional design. Select the front page again and create another simple design by clicking on the 2d Sketch icon in SolidWorks.
Draw two center lines. Go to: Tools> Sketch Entities> Centerline
Draw a vertical center line starting at the origin. SolidWorks main icon Change the line length to 61 mm by clicking the Dimensions button. Draw a horizontal center line that starts above the end point of the vertical line.
Change the line length to 26 mm by clicking the SolidWorks button.
Draw three lines of Solidline type
Draw three identical lines. Go to Tools> Sketch Entities> Line
Draw three lines as shown in the picture. Change the length of the lines by clicking the dimension button.
Draw a spline in SolidWorks
Draw a line without a center point. Go to Tools> Sketch Entities> Spline as shown in the image. Draw a line without a midpoint.
Draw a line in SolidWorks
Click on the point above the line. The gray spline vector appears.
Draw a line at the solid endpoint in SolidWorks as shown in the figure.
Click on the bottom point of the spline. The gray spline vector appears. Draw the end point of the gray vector as shown in the image. Make the bottom of the glass as shown in the picture.
Draw a line in SolidWorks. Draw the second line without the midpoint.
Go to Tools> Sketch Entities> Spline
Draw a line without a midpoint as shown in the illustration. Right click.
Draw a line in SolidWorks; As shown in the image above, the click line appears in the spline middle vector. Draw a gray end point as shown in the image. (Orange dot)
Draw a line in SolidWorks. Click at the bottom of the line. The gray spline vector appears. Draw the round end point as shown in the photo; Like the picture, try to make the end of the glass. Add a tangent mode to the end of the line. Click on the orange dot as shown. Select a horizontal ratio in the spline menu on the left of the hericontalreleti. The end point of the line now is perfectly tangent.
Draw a line in SolidWorks. Create a rotation. Go to Insert> Boss / Base> Revolve
Click on the vertical center line to specify the axis of rotation. Click the one-way option and reverse the direction. Set the rotation angle to 360 degrees. Click ok.
Make two edges or fillets
Go to Insert> Features> Fillet / Round
Click on the blue edge as shown. Change the radius of the circle to one millimeter. Click ok.
Make the other edge
Go to Round.insert> features> fillet
Click on the blue edge shown in the image. Change the radius of the circle to 5 mm. Click ok. Change the transparency of the glass. Choose a conventional view of the glass. On the appearance button
click. Click OK. Then Click the dropdewn menu, also called the standard.
Select the transparat option. Change the color to white. Click ok.
Now it’s time to turn the glass into a double-walled glass. We use the shell property to do this.
Go to insert> features> shell
Change the thicknese to one millimeter. Click ok.
Congratulations. You have finished your double-walled non-washable glass.
