Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

Does anyone know how to create a countersink on an existing hole. I have a solid piece that has two exsiting holes and i need them to be countersinked. It wont do it. I used extrude and press and pull and it wont work. Is there a way on doing it. Please advice

One way would be to use the CHAMFER command. Pay close attention to the command line prompts.

We are talking countersunk and not counterbored right?

Then I stand by my advice. This is what you're apt to see at the command line:

 

Command: chamfer

(TRIM mode) Current chamfer Dist1 = 0.0000, Dist2 = 0.0000

Select first line or [undo/Polyline/Distance/Angle/Trim/mEthod/Multiple]:

Base surface selection...

Enter surface selection option [Next/OK (current)] :

Specify base surface chamfer distance: .02

Specify other surface chamfer distance :

Select an edge or [Loop]: Select an edge or [Loop]:

Another option is to create a cone and subtract it from the solid body.

 

The way I have always done it is I draw a circle to the c'sink dia. then extrude using the taper option then subtract.
