Creating Cores

To create a core:

  1. Create a core sketch on a tooling body (main core or cavity).
  2. Click Core Tool_Core_Mold_Tools.gif on the Mold Tools toolbar, or click Insert > Molds > Core.
  3. In the Core PropertyManager, set options, then click PM_OK.gif.
    A new body is created for the core and is subtracted from the tooling body.
    In the FeatureManager design tree, in the Solid Bodies folder FM_solid_bodies.gif, a new folder named Core bodies FM_solid_bodies.gif appears the first time you create a core. Additional core bodies you create are stored in this folder.
    To facilitate viewing the core, hide the tooling body.
