Trying to make a wedge blade


#1

So here’s my 2D drawing:

I want to pull it 3mm but make it a wedge. For a simple square it’s easy, pull then select an edge and Move it down flat:

But the blade is more complex in shape:

Tried to Erase and soften the many vertical lines and it “simplified” like so:

But still I can’t just flat down one side.
How shoud I do that?
Attached the model. Thank you!

Draw a line parallel to the edge and use the rotate tool to angle the face down.


#3

I did not know that it could be done so easily. I would draw a face and use intersect.


#4

Please show me how to rotate, thanks.

How do you make the goniometer turn red??
Also, I have to wedge not only the edge, but the whole top plane.


#7

He clicked on the edge and then dragged along it. This causes the rotate tool to lock to that edge as the axis for rotation (a feature frequently overlooked when learning!).


#8

Did it!!

Fantastic thing to drag the rotate tool, I didn’t knot it! Thank you all.


#9

But I think you’ll find a razor blade is flat with two sharpened edges.

Yeah, I know that very well :slight_smile: Thank you for the solution.
