Project 2 – Revolve Features

Project Objective

Create two components of the flashlight. Create the LENS and BULB.

Project Situation

The LENS is a purchase part utilized in the FLASHLIGHT assembly, Figure 2.1. Obtain dimensional information on the LENS. Review the size, material and construction.

The BULB is a purchased part, Figure 2.2. The BULB is a replacement part and requires a separate part number and order number.

Project Overview Create two parts in this section:

• BULB The LENS and the BULB utilize a Revolve Base feature. LENS

 for the LENS

Determine the key features of the LENS. The Base feature for the LENS is a solid Revolved feature. A solid Revolved feature adds material. The Revolved Base feature is the foundation

A Revolved feature is geometry created by rotating a sketched profile around a centerline, Figure2.3. Close the Sketch profile for a solid Revolved feature, Figure 2.4. Do not cross the centerline.

LENS Feature Overview

Create the LENS. Use the solid Revolved Base feature, Figure 2.5.

Create uniform wall thickness. Create the Shell feature, Figure 2.6.

Create an Extruded-Boss feature from the back of the LENS, Figure 2.7.

Create a Thin-Revolved feature to connect the LENS to the BATTERYPLATE, Figure 2.8.

Create a Counterbore Hole feature with the HoleWizard, Figure 2.9. The BULB is located inside the Counterbore Hole.

Create the front LensFlange feature. Add a transparent LensShield feature, Figure 2.10.

Create the LENS

Create the LENS with a Revolved Base feature. The solid Revolved Base feature requires a sketched profile and a centerline. The profile is located on the Right plane with the centerline collinear to the Top plane. The profile lines reference the Top and Front planes. The curve of the LENS is created with a 3-point arc.
