February 2, 2011 By: Brian Halicki Halco Design

Using a Multi-Body Part to create Solid Bodies within a part.

With the steps provided below, this process of creating multiple bodies within a part to model a reinforced hose for use in configurations used in air and vacuum lines.

The following steps will be to:

Make the reinforcement wire inside a hose using the coil feature

Extrude a tube and specify that the extrusion is a new solid

a hose using the coil feature  Extrude a tube and specify that the extrusion is
