Sorry Im a solidworks newbie, I'm not even sure where to begin with making this model, do I start with drawing a specific view or is there someway I can twist the bend after making a 90 degree model?
There could be many ways to model any given part, and you can go with what works well for you. In this case you can extrude sketches and cuts as needed to create this part. I don't see anything I would try to twist or bend. There is also a Hole Wizard that can help you with the counterbore holes.
Sounds to me like you need to spend a little time with the tutorials if you haven't already.
when evaluating something like this try and break it into simple geometric chunks. Work out which will be the 'foundation' of your part and work with the origin.
To create the solid I would use 2 extrude features. To make it easier to explain I've created an example part. You can then use the hole wizard to add the countersunk holes and a cut extrude to do the hexagonal hole.
Probably a good idea to do the tutorials built into SolidWorks to give yourself an understanding of it's logic.
Thanks I figured it out, I ended up defining 2 new reference planes, one at 45deg and another at 60deg from that plane which made it 1000 times easier
a bit late to the party- but
here's my take on your part
SW15 prt-file att.
use the rollback bar to inspect build
hope this helps- have a good'n kelef
