    How to extrude the profile?

    Is it extruding the profile using the radius line as the path as shown in #8?

    I am sure Remark will add more detail, you draw your profile say in same plane as the two circles add a line from outer circle to centre, place your profile at this intersection point, move it inwards a bit. Using rotate3D you rotate the profile 90degrees using say the Y option and 90. (Profile is on left side) type -vpoint 1,1,1 and you should see your profile standing up, use extrude as posted by Remark extending past the outer circle. Follow the steps above.

    It sounds like you should practice some of the basic commands extrude subtract union push/pull rotate3D and importantly setting UCS,s .

    Sent from iPad so no pretty pictures.

    See the image in post #9. Those "bumps" are what I am referring to as ridges. This is not my field of expertise so I am not aware of the correct terminology.

    Extrude the profile using the Extrude command. It has to be extruded enough such that it will extend beyond both the O.D. and I.D. of the ring. To achieve this move the profile slightly outside of the O.D. then extrude inward.

    The only thing I can do is to draw the profile. Your explanation on 3D operation is hard to understand. So, please re-explain it step-by-step like:

    step 1: ...
    step 2: ...
    step 3: ...

    and so on.

    How about the ID is 10 and the OD is 12, the amount of profile is 5.

    The two images in post #8 visually show what I have been talking about.

    You have to locate your profile relative to the O.D. of the spacer then extrude it before it can be trimmed. Do you at least know how to do that?

    "How about the ID is 10 and the OD is 12, the amount of profile is 5."

    Are these metric or imperial dimensions? Either way they don't seem right. It's like you are guessing. How many ridges total?

    Profile located relative to O.D. of spacer. Profile is magenta colored. The O.D. is color green; I.D. is color yellow. The red line is used as a reference point and is drawn from the center of the circles through a quadrant point and then beyond it by a distance of 0.2.

    Profile is extruded such that it extends beyond the I.D. For reference the distance between the O.D. and I.D. is 0.2 and I extruded the profile an additional 0.2 for an overall length of 0.6.
