Thread: Help please

    Hey guys, im needing some help with mating in a new way to what im used to.

    Basically, im needing to mate a "seat" inside a large dia pipe on an angle (Above the opening on one side and below on the opposite) that will be a seat for something else to slide into.

    Im trying to get the image to the right mated inside the image to the left but on an angle (54 degrees) like the construction line.

    Next post will be some images of exactly what i want to do

    can anyone shed some light on the best way to do this?

    I might be talking out of my bottom end But can you position the oval above the part at the correct angle and then mate it to the top of the tee with an offset.

    Hello. Look at this https://mega.nz/#!ZUtC0DwD!wI9D63TNE...qrSDwykQQe80d4

    I made mates using 2d sketch references

    If you will not be swayed by logic or experience simply pick the idea you
    like best, but ask yourself why you sought advice in the first place and,
    for a simple life, perhaps consider not doing so in future

    Oops, Solidworks isn't my thing!

    Create a plane at the angle then create sketch or extrude on this plane using the convert entity's intersection tool.

    To create the plane draw a sketch on the front plane with line at the angle and location you want. See pic1
    Then create plane from Reference geometry option using the angled line as first reference and front plane as second. See pic2

    Next select the new plane and create sketch on it. Use the Convert entity's tool and select the intersection tool. see pic3
    Then you can offset the result and extrude.
