Modeling Remote Controller

STEP 2 – creating surfaces

With command create two sweeps. One with rail and one section, and once more for the other section:

sweep1 rail and section curves

sweep1 rail and section curves

surfaces created with sweep1

surfaces created with sweep1

Now, trim the surfaces we don’t need. Check the image below to see which ones you will leave :

Now, you can joing those surfaces if you haven’t already, and using command connect upper edges of two side surfaces. that too.

Using command extrude top planar curve we created earlier (extrude it down just so it crosses our surfaces):

again, and Join.

Now, these two curves, we will need them later too, so we don’t have to create them again. When in command just click on the InPlace option in command line.

Trim the lines, and using command with 2 as a radius create fillet between two lines. After that Join them.

Now, create from Right viewport another . With points at: -10,9 / 0,10 / 10,9. that curve from Mid to the start of the red line in the upper image:

Using Sweep1 make a surface out of the red curve and the new one:

Trim it, and Join it:

Now, with command and 1 unit as radius fillet these edges:

which edges to fillet

And you should get something like on the image below. And you have created the base body of our RC.

Now that we have our body, it, or using command extract the upper surface, and hide everything else except that surface and that rail curve and two section curves:

hide everything else

hide everything else

Using Copy and command line option InPlace copy this surface, and hide one.We need to copy one curve too, so Copy rail curve, and with left section curve move up by 1 unit.

Make two surfaces with Sweep1 like on the image below:

Using command, create two more surfaces like on the image below:

Ok, now, like you already know, we are going to trim the excess.

Using FilletEdge command and 1 unit as radius, fillet the edges:

Using Trim or trim the RC surface:

delete gray part 😉

Using command, offset the sruface by 0.1 upwards.

Using comand, make a pipe along upper surface’s edge. To make one pipe, in options in command line click on ChainEdges, if that still does just parts, then you should do one edge part at the time. But make sure you turn off cap option. Then Join those pipes into one.

Ok, and now Trim the upper surface with that pipe.

Using command, create lines out of both surface’s edges. Now, with Line command create one section line connecting both edge curves. And using make a connecting surface:

sweep2 surface

sweep2 surface

Now, unhide all other objects, and Join back the body of remote controller. Using FilletEdge with 0.05 as radius, fillet the edges:

    Dear Vuzem,

    not only beginners but advance CADians liked this tutorial. its great.
    Thank you for such explanations.
    Keep it up.
