Radial Draft

has anyone any experience on trying to apply radial draft
i have a hollow cylinder with some locking features that need 2.5'
radial (revolved) draft
revolving the draft in the features is not working so much (multiple
revolves)
thanks for any help

"Revolving a draft"? Please explain.

If you're talking about drafting the ends of a cylinder whose axis is perpendicular to the direction of pull, "radial draft" would still leave a section of 0 deg draft at the PL. The closest thing to something that does "radial draft" might be a ruled surface, and then a replace face or cut with surface.

If you're applying radial drafting to the IDs the best way to proceed is to make a Sweep for the ODs and a Cut Loft for the IDs. Where the ODs start and end shapes are same diameter; and the IDs start and end shapes are different diameter. Thus, you have to calculate the drafted angle written prior to apply those in the CAD.
