how to cut groves part way around grip?solidworks
You just do it.
>>565985Sweep 2D profile along 3D path
Create a series of planes at each level that you want a groove.Use Sketch Tools > Intersection Curve to make a sketch of the intersection between the part and the planeThen either use these sketches and the offset tool to make extruded cuts, or use them to make paths for a swept cut.
>>566091I figured that, I was hoping for a easier way. Thanks
Does Solidworks has "Project Sketch" feature like Catia does? In Catia you'd have to fix your geometry by sewing those planes together and then you could project from a plane that goes by the middle of this symmetric piece. Also idk, but that model looks wrong somehow, like it was made using solids rather than surface and mirroring it.
