What You’ll Need

In order to make a Phillips screwdriver in SolidWorks, you will need the following:
-A computer with SolidWorks installed
-A 3D printer
-A piece of PLA or ABS plastic
-A Phillips head bit

Step One: Creating the Phillips Head

In this tutorial, we will be covering how to make a Phillips head screwdriver in Solidworks. The first step is to create the Phillips head. The Phillips head is the part of the screwdriver that actually does the work of driving in or removing screws.

There are several ways to create the Phillips head. One way is to use a Revolve feature. Another way is to use an Extrude feature. In this tutorial, we will be using the Revolve feature.

To begin, create a new sketch on a flat plane. Draw a center point at the origin of the plane. Then, draw two lines perpendicular to each other, intersecting at the center point. These lines will be used as axis for the revolve feature.

Next, draw a triangle on one side of the sketch. The triangle should be equilateral, with all sides being equal length. The triangle should also have one point touching one of the lines drawn earlier. This line will be used as the reference line for the revolve feature.

Now that the sketch is complete, it is time to create the Revolve feature. To do this, select Revolve from the Features toolbar. In the Revolve dialog box, select Sketch1 as the profile to revolve and Line1 as the axis of revolution. Make sure that you select ‘270 degrees’ forthe angle of revolution and click OK.

Step Two: Adding the Screwdriver Handle

In this step, you will be adding the cylindrical handle to your screwdriver. Begin by sketching a circle in the bottom right quadrant of the Front Plane. The circle should have a diameter of 3/16 inch. Once you have sketched the circle, use the Centerline tool to draw a horizontal centerline through the center of the circle.

Step Three: Assembling the Phillips Screwdriver

Now that you have all of the parts for your Phillips screwdriver, it’s time to assemble them. This is a relatively simple process, but there are a few things to keep in mind.

1. Start by grabbing the handle of the screwdriver. If it has a cap, unscrew it and set it aside. You’ll need this later.

2. Take the shaft of the screwdriver and insert it into the handle. Make sure that it’s snug and secure before moving on.

3. Now, take the bit holder and insert it into the end of the shaft. Again, make sure that it’s snug and secure before moving on.

4. Finally, take the bit (in this case, a Phillips head) and insert it into the bit holder. Once again, make sure that it’s snug and secure before moving on.

5. Once you’ve assembled all of the parts, screw the cap back onto the handle (if applicable) and voila! You now have a fully functioning Phillips screwdriver

Step Four: Testing the Phillips Screwdriver

Now that you have your Phillips screwdriver, it’s time to test it out. Find a Phillips head screw and see if your new tool can remove it. If it can, congratulations! You have now successfully made a Phillips screwdriver in Solidworks.

Conclusion

Solidworks is a powerful tool that can be used to create a wide variety of objects, including tools. In this tutorial, you learned how to use Solidworks to create a phillips screwdriver. With a little practice, you should be able to make your own screwdriver in Solidworks with ease. Thanks for reading!
