Exercise 2: Creating Part Models.

Objectives

After successfully completing this exercise, you will know how to:

 Create datum axes and planes.


 Create holes, rounds, chamfers, and shells.
 Created extrude, revolve, and rib features.
 Copy, mirror, and pattern features.
Datum Axes
Datum Features, such as Datum Axes are created with easy-to-use dialog
boxes. There is no need to select the datum axis type, since the type of
geometry selected dictates the type of datum axis.

Task 2-1. Create a Datum Axis on the end of the


CONNECTING_ROD_2.PRT.

preview, and then click Open in Pro/E .
2. Click Datum Planes from the main toolbar to disable their display.

3. Start the Datum Axis Tool from the feature toolbar.


a. Select the cylindrical surface shown in the following figure.
b. Click OK from the Datum Axis dialog box.

Datum Axis Created


Coaxial Holes
The Hole Tool is used to create all hole types. The type of geometry
selected determines which type of hole will be created. In this case, and
Axis is selected as the Primary Reference. The Secondary Reference is
used to specify a placement plane.

Task 2-2. Create a coaxial hole using the previous axis.

Features remain selected after creation. This allows you to quickly create
subsequent features that refer to them, and also allows quick editing of
the feature.

2. Click Datum Axes , from the main toolbar to disable their display

Radial Holes
The Hole Tool is used to create all hole types. The type of geometry
selected determines which type of hole will be created. In this task, a
cylindrical surface is selected as the Primary Reference. There are
two Secondary References, used to specify the offset plane and the angle
plane.

Task 2-3. Create a radial hole on the end of the model for lubrication
purposes.
