Hi. I’m Mike Dady, Application Engineer for Alignex. A few months ago, I was having dinner at a friends’ house when I was given a wine glass that piqued my SOLIDWORKS interest. The glass had a set of spiral grooves machined on it’s exterior. My engineering brain immediately began wondering how I would go about recreating this exact design within SOLIDWORKS & SOLIDWORKS CAM. Let’s take a look at how it works.
