P1.7 Create a solid model of the pleated filter element. Dimensions shown are inches, and the diameter dimensions shown are nominal dimensions. There are 36 pleats in the part, and the part is 8 inches long. To create this part, start a sketch with two construction circles representing the nominal inner and outer diameters. Add and dimension two lines representing one pleat, and use a circular pattern to copy these two lines into the other 35 positions. Select the Extruded Boss Tool. Since the sketch is an open contour, a thin-feature extrusion will be created. Set the thickness to 0.02 inches, and set the type as Mid-Plane. FIGURE PI.7A FIGURE P1.7B 02 OF 5.50 www 07.00
