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.


I just made this short video to see if it will help you out.

Let me know what you think or if you have questions.


Wow, those tutorials are great guys. THANKS!
