revsurf not working for complex polyline
Message 1 of 8
I think that I understand how to use revsurf and works on simple objects for me. I created a polyline object, closed it. I ran revsurf, selected the polyline object, selected a line for the pivot point when prompted. No love. Not sure if there is some limitation in the trial period or what. I AM able to revsurf the small circle (a spring) quite nicely, I undid it in the attached file. That also needs to be revsurf'ed.
Here is the dwg file, I was not sure how to move everything that I did from the layout1 over to the model, so i just copy/pasted it.
Anyway, this should look like a nice round oil seal, that is the goal!
thanks to anyone who may shed the light.
I tested this link, doesnt work now....i will upload again tommorow.

Here is the output:
Select a linear entity to revolve:
Select the axis of revolution:
Angle to begin surface of revolution <0>:
Degrees to revolve entity (+ for ccw, - for cw <360>:
(nothing below this line and nothing changes in the display)
The final product should be a round oil seal, like a complicated doughnut.

Specify angle of taper for extrusion <0>:
1 selected curves are rejected

I've made a few of my own rookie mistakes along the way. As long as we learn from them it isn't a totally bad thing.
Where are you located by the way?
How long have you been using ZwCAD?
Did you use any other CAD software prior to ZwCAD?Tesla2010-04-08 23:30:10
