Can anyone help me? I have an exam in the upcoming week and I think I will be required to make this part, and I'm not sure how, tried a few times without success..
Did you try using the centerpoint arc slot command?
That should get the profile of the through holes. Do one set and then a circular pattern to make the rest.
Yeah I am trying to use it, but I am having a hard time giving sizes to it, as I struggle to understand the drawing in Acrobat
Here's a starting point for you, hopefully this helps. I couldn't really make out what the numbers were in your attached image, so you might want to change it to MM units and adjust it to the values you need if you want to re-use it.
I will also note that when I was playing around trying to get all three slots aligned in a single sketch, I kept on getting over defined errors even though the relation I was adding shouldn't have over defined it. I don't know if I am doing something wrong or if there are hidden relations in the slot features that may conflict with other relations. Depending on what version of Solidworks you are using, you might be able to vary the feature in the linear feature pattern itself, but I haven't used that feature and can't speak to it personally. Good luck.
As the others have pointed out, you should use the Arc Slot. There are many ways to complete this design but one of our newer commands, Variable Pattern, can do it easily for you. You only need to create a single slot and then pattern it using our Variable Pattern we introduced in 2015. Basically you will create a cut for one of the slots and then use the design intent for that slot to create instances for each of the other slot locations.
If you look at the underlying sketch for the first slot you will see a 30° and 60° angle. The 60° angle is used to defined the sweep of the arc, the 30° angle is used to define it's location around the central axis of the part. You will be creating a pattern using the 30° and the R15 dimensions since those are what actually drive the position of the slots.
Good luck with your test.
