This is a simple part, but:
You are Mechanical Designer?
You know how to use SolidWorks?
You haven't answered a thing.

Please be nice to people. We're all here to help each other and not to yell on others.
And I feel that Jose has asked you some basic questions before giving any answers so that he can elaborate his answers based on your knowledge.
Please send me your e-mail for send you the model.
I am not a mech designer. I know the basic functions of solidworks but still I need work. This exercise is just to enhance my skills so I can get a better understanding of what engineering design is.
As Jose implys, these are basic questions that any mechanical designer should know already...
1) any plane will do to start with, I'd use top plane out of habit. several other planes may need to be created as you go.
2&3 ) dashed lines are hidden lines, showing the edge of inner diameters in this case.
4) fillets are created tangent to two faces, so revolution axis is not needed
5) Double dashed lines indicate a threaded inner diameter
6) You can make a revolved base/boss, or an extruded base/boss, but not both at once. A "revolved extrude" kind of like saying a "straight circle" .. it cannot exist. The only part that might need a revolve is the tapered section inside the right cylinder, but I did it with a 10 x 15 chamfer..
7) I don't see a 10 dia pipe anywhere...the 10 wide webs are tangent to the cylinders on each side.
Make a layout sketch like the one below, then convert the needed entities from it to each new sketch as you build the part from bottom up.
welcome to the forums,
here's my take on the inf supplied
it's only a sample/representation
as there are missing dimensions
see att. prt file and use the roll back bar to see how I arrived at the model
I think you should work thru the SW help file tutorials and maybe
read up on engineering drawing and standards to get a good understanding
of the types of representations used
ie: centre lines, construction lines, tapped holes,etc
I used revolved features,
but you can also use extruded bodies and extruded cuts
and other features- what ever feels best for you
hope this helps getting you started - have a good'n kelef

This is simple high school (or even earlier) drafting and blueprint reading.
If you don't know this, you need to go back to school, or at least get some text books and do some reading before even trying to learn Solidworks.
Spend some time reading some drafting books, and doing the lessons.
You need that basic knowledge before trying to create models and drawings that you expect someone to make.
Coming here asking basic questions and expecting us to hold your hand and spell everything out for you is not going to help you in the long run.
Many of us have many years experience, and at least some basic schooling to get the knowledge we have.
Not trying to offend you. Just laying out the truth.

I'm sorry but David spoke wrongly. This piece is too complex for beginner.
What we want is that you have more knowledge before making pieces that complexity.
Get nervous, thus responding is not correct.
I'm not trying to be superior...
I'm just saying that if you don't know that those "dashed" lines represent hidden features, you do NOT "have a hang on basic concepts"
If you are currently going to school for drafting / CAD, then you should talk to your instructor.
If you are working somewhere in a beginner position, then you deinitely need to pick up some books and do some reading, and work thru the tutorials in Solidworks.
I stand by my statement.
As I said, I'm not trying to offend you, but just offer you frank advice.
HAHAHAH - I need that model
I agree with you 100% David. I see a ton of this on the PTC forums: Help, do my job for me!
Ahhhh, no. If I see someone that looks like they are capable, have done most of the leg work, and are simply asking for help to learn, then yes, but that doesn't seem to be the case here. And if he's trying to make a model without understanding the print, he's over his head and needs to learn that first.
I'll go further, I learned it the hard way, with over 30 years in the field starting with AutoCAD in '86, and 19 years on Pro/E. I got some help along the way, but mostly I was determined to learn it myself, and I think I'm more skilled because of it. Today, it seems people just flock to the i-net, don't contribute anything, don't want to actually learn anything, but simply want someone else to figure out for them quickly. In other words, they'd rather google it, than learn it. Kids these days.....

Thanks for making me chuckle...
and all other persisters, perusers and surf-stumblers of this thread
this is only an observation
(with the utmost respect to all, awe of gurus and really big grin of mischief)
(tongue in cheek- now please)
this will probably be moderated out- awh
ah,,, but grasshopper it takes a village to raise a child
(those wishing to go trolling may now exit stage left)
(deep breath- don't read any further unless you have any sense of humour)
(well, a similar sense of humour at least)
or even humor- depending on your geographical idiosyncrasies
ah,,, but grasshopper it takes a global village to raise a child,
and adults, bosses, tax inspectors and bl00d¥ barmen,
and slow walkers, loud mobile users,
and that kid that won't pack my groceries carefully enough,
and and and and and and and and and and and......
(those of nervous disposition with doctors notes,
or concerned relatives may also now leave)
(really, really not) short version
(at this stage, I'm sure I've lost the attention of half of the perusers-
due to ACDC, bladder pressure, multi-thread tasking, ipad/ifone/
handy/mobile ringing, not caring what ASCII 097,104 is)
the first spam email (selling computers I think),
that led to the RFC proposal of banning such posters from the net, forever!
ha, what ever happened to that one
not to get too philosophical (the musing type, that is,
not Plato, Aristotle or Archimedes [he invented the screw you know,
good auld Archimedes] )
(google colloquial english "screw" to see why that makes me so happy)
as a modern(ish) academic, forever playing catch-up,
for those of us born before the space age, or remote controls, or cars smarter than us,
of course it's frustrating watching two finger KBW's (keyboard warriors),
that never bothered to learn touch typing, audio transcription or pong,
and never lost at asteroids or space invaders by 5 points,
but still send emails and posts, and pictures of kittens (CHR$ 097,104)
and posts without enough or confusing information to answer their
question succinctly and to their requirements
and yes, working for a boss or manager that you know isn't safe to be
let out on their own, and are only allowed models and files with "read only" attributes
maybe we should introduce a colour coding for questions-
(like those causing this type of furore)
this would be through awesome/un-awesome, thumbs-up/thumbs-down, or +/- voting
(no multi voting of course)
so that the post appears on the forum's home page as -
red- really not worth reading - loads of un-awesome, thumbs-down, or minus voting
orange- is t(r)ending to be really un-awesome, thumbs-down, or minus voting
yellow- neutral (any other colour will do- as long as we get a referendum)
green- answered and/or awesome, thumbs-up, or plus voting
blue- really good interesting topic- loads awesome, thumbs-up, or plus voting
(or possibly flashing blue/green- or do I mean blinking? (CHR$ 104,109,109) don't know)
possibly maybe? (CHR$ 110,097,104) really
secondly, the moderators could have a professional cut-off point
ie: if they allow it - you don't negative it- hmm they have that now I thought?
(hmm question- who will decide their "professional cut-off point")
(hmm question- who will decide "you're negative/ity")
(hmmm - who will.... nah just musing)
but then again, I believe in "less is more" (honestly)
ie: if it's not to my taste I ignore it, haste le vista(or xp) babe
basically not to troll, denigrate or give the colic attention-
if they post non-sensicals and get no reaction they will wither of their own accord
a lot more than getting interaction- what ever type it is-
in "an eye for an eye" philosophy- everybody ends up blind
in flame wars- everybody ends up burnt
on t'other hand-
sadly I will always (well-l-l mostly) give the benefit of doubt once(ish),
it might be the spark, or the first step that everybody makes somewhere,
somehow and sometime- to move to the next step upwards and onwards
now then at this point, I've just remembered why I came to the forum today,
this is to all the moderators, gurus, contributors and general foot traffic
if you've read thus far, this is for YOU, (and I'm astounded at your tenacity)
and a Happy New Year
these are not my gifs- I just googled them and
are only copied and pasted- not mine
I didn't do any art work, compiling or editing on them
I don't know how they are coded, or contribute in any way
thank you to the guys who did do - thnx
Paul Salvador BRILLIANT - can we have it as an emoji
(sorry but I will only be copying and pasting it)
and yes the points on my profile have the decimal wrong- by a factor of 10
and I think this thread has become an informal chat room,
so probably breaking some rules then hey
so that's all for now, I've got to go-
thanks to the forums admin, moderators, support and everybody involved (hail gurus),
so, whiskey bottle is empty, bladder pressure really high,
and I've got to go and find my grand-daughter to post this to the forum for me (hic)
have a good'n kelef
As always the best LOLOL - (no I'm wrong), the best post EVER) thanks for the humor and Merry Christmas - Happy New Year your way as well lolololololol
($CHR 87,84,70) !
Too much of the tango-foxtrot I'd say, good thing the resultant pressure made you stop or I'd still be reading.
Be the big billy goat gruff then...
Is there a color for posts that have drifted completely off topic? Black, like the hole they've become, drawing everyone in....
Thanks for the yuks, and Merry Christmas!
thnx and doesn't your opener wake the artistic side,
rather than the latin-greco script-
now on the off-topic
it was discussed once that as a thread wanders,
meanders too far, (a given percentage by moderators for infringements)
the offenders posts are reduced in colour, they get faded (out),
the further from the on topic adjudication one, two, three posts- annnd your (whited)out.
any hoo, just before, higher in the thread I saw a moderator culled one response,
so who knows how long this "chat room" will survive
and happy that you enjoyed your yuks
a merry xmas and happy new year
to you and yours- kelef
Thanks for the humor... great dialog... and, you're welcome, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
just my annual/bi-annual humane letting off-
pure engineering/CAD associated disciplines
can and do get a little bit seriously tunnel visioned
but xmas/new year we have a good excuse
it's also good therapy at any time- and cheap
have a good'n
if not, have a great one
merry xmas and a happy new year,
to you and yours- kelef
