Drawing a grommet?

Anyone have a quick tutorial on how to make a grommet? Having issues with the center part.

You can easily do this with the revolve tool.

  1. sketch the profile of the grommet.
  2. draw a revolve axis
  3. use Tools/Revolve

I put together a short video on the very basic interaction.

We also put together a nice tutorial on the Revolve tool, I linked this as well. Claas Kuhnen walks you through the essentials, and more.

Hope this helps.

Wow, those tutorials are great guys. THANKS!
