Arrow #53 Camper Marker Lens

Postby -snw » Wed Jun 17, 2020 9:17 pm

This lens took a few tries to get right due to the surface shape and the limitations of the fillet tool, extruded cuts, and thickness tools. My workarounds include creating a 2nd body to create the "cut", then using a boolean to cut the main body. The thickness tool would not work at all so I used the scale tool on the draft workbench (shout out to JOKO for that tip). Once the surface cut was made with the first boolean operation it became quicker to use a combination of the PartDesign and Part workbenches to create a shape and then use boolean commands to join or cut the bodies.

This lens will be 3D printed for a 1968 Serro Scotty Gaucho and replacement lenses are not available.

Absolutely. I got the tip from this video starting at 25:09. This whole video was very helpful to me when I was modeling this part.
