In this Tutorial, you will gain additional 3D CAD experience with Alibre Design
, by using the Loft Feature to create a Lofted Tube.
If you would like to try this and don't yet have a copy of Alibre Design, you can get the Alibre Design Trial
, or Alibre Design Express
. Text Only versions of these tutorials are on my Alibre Design Tutorials Site
In the next step, you will have a pdf file - open this to do the tutorial.
You will start out by being shown Launcing of Alibre Design, selecting Work Offline, opening and Maximizing the size of a New Part workspace, and setting up some Properties for elements of the work space, and also Options - including Grid selections, Color Scheme, and standard defaults.
I then show you creating a series of 3 sketches, each on a different plane (2 new ones created), Loft them, adding the Neck using Extrude, and Revolve Cut to show Simplified Threads, and hollow out the Neck. Finally adding simple colors and reflective properties, and saving the file.
