solidworks helix tutorial


Please note that this is an advanced tutorial which means I don’t cover basic skills here – like creating a sketch or drawing a line – so if you are a beginner then I suggest you to work on the drone project. That is a solidworks 3d modeling project which I described the designing process from the very beginning to advanced skills.

And the summary of this tutorial:

One of the swa visitors had asked me for tutorial about the designing of helix shape and this is for him. I hope you like it too. You can find many Helix shaped tools in industries, for example threads on every bolt and nut are based on a helix or reciprocating screws in plastic injection machines and meat grinders are helix shaped tools. Here we are going to design a simple helix shaped tool. You can use the method to design any other similar tool:

In the first step we will create a shaft by solidworks extrude. We need a basic sketch to define a helix so open a new sketch on the end circular surface of the part and project the circular edge of the part

We can define the helix now.We need a new plane to sketch on the starting point of the helix.

then we sketch a profile and we will sweep it through all the helix

Now we have our reciprocating screw. Using this method you can design any other helix shaped model:
