      Hi guys, i'm trying to make a simple sledgehammer like you see in the picture, i have made all the parts, but having difficulty mating the two slightly bigger ends and handle attachment to the 4 pieces.

      This is about as far as i've managed to get. I've been trying a few hours with all the basic and advanced mates I could find and play with. The closest I got was to make a plane and find a centre point on the plane and then create a center profile mate to that centred point. But then i discovered the plane wasn't associated to the object itself, so it moved as soon as i moved the object.

       

      I know this may seem uber basic for most of you guys, but it's really giving me a headache! It is possible someone can point me in the right direction?

       

      Also, does anyone how to make the welds visible like you see in the top picture? I can't find a function to make that happen.

       

      Cheers!
