How To Use Revolved Cut In Solidworks(Illustrated Expression)

In this article you will find the information about the Revolved Cut command in Solidworks. Revolved Cut command is generally used for the cutting material from a 3D geometry in Solidworks. It is working as Revolved Boss/Base but the difference is, it is used for cutting from 3D geometries in Solidworks. Also there are other types of feature of Revolved Cut in Solidworks.

You will learn the how to use the all the features of Revolved Cut in Solidworks by following below steps. There is a very basic example to understand the logic of Revolved Cut in Solidworks. Also you will understand the which kinds of geometries could be obtained with Revolved Cut command.

How To Use Revolved Cut In Solidworks?

Have a proper geometry for revolved cut in Solidworks

For example we want to cut out a sketch geometry as above from a 3D geometry by rotating around a axis on this 3D geometry by using Revolved Cut command in Solidworks.

Click on Revolved Cut command in Solidworks interface

You need to just click on the Revolved Cut command as shown by red arrow above to start the Revolved Cut operation in Solidworks.

Select a proper contour

Inside the Revolved Cut command, you can select a contour area from the red box region as shown above like contours as shown by red arrow also in Solidworks.

Select a rotation axis

Also you need to select an axis of rotation from the red boxed region above for selected rotating contour in Revolved Cut command in Solidworks.

Select a revolving method to cut

For direction 1 in Revolved Cut command in Solidworks, you can choose a cutting method from red boxed region above;

Blind: You can enter a angle value for cutting operation with Revolved Cut command.

Up To Vertex: You can choose a vertex from a geometry in 3D drawing in Solidworks. Cutting operation will be done up to this vertex with Revolved Cut command.

Up To Surface: You can select a surface inside the drawing in Solidworks and the cutting operation will be done up to this surface/plane etc. with Revolved Cut command.

Offset From Surface: You can start your cutting operation from a surface that you selected, you can also enter a offset value that where you want to start your revolved cut operation from the surface that you selected in Revolved Cut command in Solidworks.

Mid Plane: You can make symmetric cutting operation with this. The angle value that you entered will be separated between two sides of symmetry plane which is your sketch contour’s plane also in Revolved Cut command in Solidworks.

Select direction 2

You can also do your adjustments like Direction 1 in Direction 2 in Revolved Cut command. Difference from mid plane is, you could not do different cutting with mid plane, but you can do a different cutting for direction 2 in this option in Revolved Cut in Solidworks.

You can define Thin Feature for revolving

You can use also a thin feature in Revolved Cut command to obtain ofset cut regions in Solidworks.

Complete the revolved cut operation in Solidworks

You can click on the green yes tick as shown by red arrow above to complete the Revolved Cur operation.

Revolved Cut geometry in Solidworks

As you can see the opeation is done like that with Revolved Cut command. You can observe the geometrical difference from conventional extruded cut in Solidworks.
