I'm attempting to design my first part in Fusion 360, it's a very simple part but it is obviously taking me a lot of time to get it to where I am at. What I have finally got really stuck on is adding support ribs to the back face of my part. I want 2 ribs, one at the left face and one at the right face. I am just not understanding the correct way to get the rub to fill in against the face of my part. I've attached the file for reference. Any help is appreciated.

Could you upload a picture or drawing of what your are trying to model, I've had a look at the file but not sure exactly where you want these supporting ribs. Thanks

Thanks Ben, pic attached. I want to get 2 ribs fitted, running from the top mounting ear down to the lower mounting ear, just inside the radiused corner, on the back face.

Hi Josh, sorry for the delayed reply

check out this screen recording, is that roughly what you were after?

there's a few different ways to approach it

Happy Holidays Connor,

Your clip is exactly what I was trying to accomplish.

I kept trying to do the task with the "rib" tool button. I will utilize the "Project" tool instead.


It's probably possible with the "web" tool as well I think, but a sketch using the project or intersect tool and then an extrude of this profile would be the easiest
