Understand Extrude Tool
This tutorial is made using Creo Elements/Pro V 5.0. The display layout may be different for other versions.
Top. For our exercise Figure 2 ©www. Here is a simple exercise. It linearly extrudes a sketch perpendicular to the sketching plane to create or remove material.a new windows will open in which you can see the three planes named as Front. Figure 1 2) A new dialog box will open as shown in figure 2. After naming your part as Extrude press ok . In this exercise we will try to learn about • • • Solid Extrude Extrude cut/Add Extrude Thicken Cut/Add Solid Extrude: Start your Creo Elements/pro 1) Select new (figure 1) from main menu. You can either select the sketch first or then start the Extrude tool. Right.mechanical360.EXTRDUE Mechanical Engineering 360 Introduction An extrude feature is based on a two-dimensional sketch. or you can start the Extrude tool and then select the sketch.net .
Figure 3 4) Now click at a sketch tool from tool menu (figure 4).net .EXTRDUE Mechanical Engineering 360 3) Select the Front plane either from sketch area or from Model Tree(Figure 3) .48. Take arc length as 138. Use line tool and arc tool to build it and press DONE button. Figure 4 Figure 5 5) In sketching window make the shape as shown in figure 6. you can use your own dimensions for it but make sure it remain symmetric about axis. Figure 6 ©www. A new dialog box will open just click at sketch button After clicking you will be able to make any of your drawing.mechanical360.
mechanical360. Now we will ADD another extrude feature in our part.EXTRDUE Mechanical Engineering 360 6) Now select your sketch1 and click at Extrude Tool. Figure 9 Figure 7 Figure 8 You have completed the Extrude Exercise. Figure 20 Figure 11 ©www. 7) Use the same pattern to move into sketching window select front plane > sketch and make the following sketch at your part. Select lengths of major arc as 85 and for smaller as 27.net . Press ok button (figure 9). Your part will turned Yellow now specify the depth as 60.
EXTRDUE Mechanical Engineering 360 Extrude Cut: 8) After making it. Click at it hold it and drag at the center of your part as shown in figure Make scale as 30 you also can set it at a certain angle if you wish to set it . Now we will create Extrude CUT Now select the top surface of Your part so it turns into red as shown in fig Figure 12 9) Now click again at Sketch button.mechanical360. Because we are going to draw a sketch for cut. Click at OK button and than done button of sketching window. After going into sketching window click at palette. Figure 13 Select a Hexagon.net . ©www. Extrude it up to the depth of 100 and make it solid.
Make Extrude depth as 120 and also click at invert button and then at Remove material After it click at done button at the right side of figure.net .mechanical360. ©www.EXTRDUE Mechanical Engineering 360 Figure 14 10) Now select your hexogen sketch and then click at extrude button.
mechanical360.EXTRDUE Mechanical Engineering 360 Figure 15 This will be your final part after making Extrude cut.net . Figure 16 Now we move towards next type of extrude ©www.
EXTRDUE Mechanical Engineering 360 Extrude Thicken Cut: We will use our previous part in this session Select the top surface of your part as shown in figure below. Figure 17 Now in sketching window draw a sketch as shown in figure below.mechanical360.selelct the thikness 8 or any of your reasonable choice. Dimensions are your choice but keep it reasonable so your sketch remains within the part body. Use the invert tool shown to controle the the thiken feature so it remain within The boundries of our part. Use previous step to get in to the sketching window. You can observe it is just parallel to the boundaries of part.net . ©www. It will show a solid feature but as we want a thicken feature so we don’t need it. Figure 18 Select your new sketch and then click at extrude button. So click at in extrude options bar and select the following configuration as shown in figure next to the page.
