I have a challenge I do not know how to solve. I have to illustrate in SW a pressed area in a round aluminum tube. The tube is 0.375 diameter, 0.035 wall. It has to have a 0.50" wide flat area pressed into it so that it does not move in the device it is being installed in. I do not know how to draw this flat (squished) area? Any constructive suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
