Manual  Rotate...

If you want to remove a rotated 2D sketch from a solid, proceed as follows:

Initial situation: Cuboid created on Plane ZX

  1. Via context menu command New sketch..., open the Sketcher and create a Circle (and a Rotation axis), that is positioned so that it can later penetrate the 3D solid through rotation.

    [Note] Note

    Precondition for rotating the 2D sketch is a Rotation axis. If it has not been specified yet in the Sketcher following error message appears when calling the command Rotate....

    Rotation not possible because of missing center line.

    Rotation not possible because of missing center line.

    The Rotation axis is depicted as dot-dash line in the 3D view.

  2. In the 3D History under Sketch 2, select the context menu command Cut -> Rotate....

    -> The dialog box Rotational solid is opened.

  3. Do you want the extrusion to go through the entire body or simply through a certain angle?

    In the dialog box Rotational solid make the respective settings. In the 3D view, you can immediately see the result to be expected.

    In the example, the cuboid should completely be penetrated, meaning in Both directions with respective Angle (here 90°).

    -> After confirming with OK both objects are cut. A circular tube is removed from the cuboid.

    -> In the 3D History another point (feature) shows up: Cut extrude 1.

The explanation of the other fields can be found in Section, “ Extrude... ”.
