Rotary Saw Blade Modeling

Postby axuwon » Fri Apr 21, 2017 12:35 pm

Hi, everyone!

Can you give me a clue on what is the best way to model the rotary saw blade presented in attachment. Sure I can do everything "by hand" but I feel that the better way is either to use Multitransform feature in Part Design or to use the python scripting.

- Model the inside.
- Model one tooth.
- Use Draft->Polar pattern with 360° and number of teeth, don't forget to fuse.

As an alternative you can directly model one pie slice and use the polar pattern.

I can think of a few different ways to model that saw blade...

But why did you get 7 dislikes? Did you kick someone with a microcelly footlace?
