To Create a Neck
A neck is a special type of revolved slot that creates a groove around a revolved part or feature.
You always create a neck on a Through Axis datum plane and sketch it inside the part. You must align both ends of the section to the revolved surface of the parent feature.
1. Set the allow_anatomic_features configuration option to yes to make the Neck command available on the All Commands list.
2. Add the Neck command to the desired user-defined group on the ribbon.
* For information about customizing the ribbon, see the Related Links.
3. Click Neck. The OPTIONS menu appears.
4. Choose an angle to specify the number of degrees in the revolution.
5. Create or select a Through Axis datum plane as the sketching plane.
6. Sketch the neck cross section open with the ends aligned to the silhouette edge of the part or feature.
7. Sketch the centerline that becomes the axis of rotation.
In creating a neck, the section is revolved around the part to the specified angle measure, removing the material inside the section.
