Learn about creating gussets.
- [Instructor] In this example we're going to be taking a look…at adding in some gussets to our part.…Now I'm not sure you're necessarily going to need…to use the gusset command on the exam,…but the exam does change all time so it's better…to know it that to not.…So click on Gusset up here, click on Supporting Faces,…I'm going to click on this one right here,…and this one down here, and notice…that it adds me a little small gusset right here.…Now you can choose the style of gusset you'd like,…so it can either be a triangular one or this square one…with a little chamfer on the one corner.…You can then bump up the size, click on the arrows…if you want or just type in the value,…I'ma switch back to the triangular one,…and I can say like something like six by six,…so you're going to drag that gusset right in there.…
Now my material thickness, I can add it…on both sides or just one direction or middle,…I can change the thickness of the gusset,…I'ma type point 5 to make it a little thicker,…and then I can add the location of where I want to have it.…
