To Create a Rotated Blend Segment
1. Click Model > Shapes > Rotational Blend. The Rotational Blend tab opens.
2. Make sure that is selected.
3. Choose a creation method:
To sketch internal sections:
1. Click or click Sketched sections on the Sections tab.
2. Click Define and select a planar reference, a point, a vertex, or the end of a curve to define the sketch plane. Sketch the first section.
3. To set the sketch plane reference for the second section, click Offset dimension or Reference on the Sections tab. Set the offset or select a reference for the section and click Sketch. Sketch the section. The blended segments preview.
4. To sketch another section, click Insert and repeat the previous step.
5. Click Centerline and create a geometry centerline.
To select sections:
1. Make sure that is selected.
2. Click Sections. The Sections tab opens with Selected sections selected.
3. Select the first section and click Insert.
4. Select a second section. The blended segments preview.
5. If required, select additional sections for the blend until all sections are added.
For more information on using the Blend tools, search the Help Center.
4. If the sections do not contain a geometry centerline, click the collector or the Axis of revolution collector and select a linear reference to use as the axis of revolution.
5. To set board-specific options, click Options. The Options tab opens. Perform any of the following operations:
Click Straight to connect the section edges with straight lines, or click Smooth to connect the section edges with spline surfaces.
Click Add bends on sharp edges to round sharp edges when the sketch includes nontangent geometry. Set the value of the radius and the location for dimensioning the radius.
Click Set driving surface opposite blended surface to flip the driving surface. This option is not available for a first segment.
Click Merge to model to merge the segment with intersecting segments.
To keep the new segment edges from merging with existing intersecting segments, click Keep merged edges.
