Hi all,


SW part help.jpg

I haven't used Solidworks in the last few months, so I am rusty with the tools. I want to produce the part shown in the picture (apologies if my sketches are unclear. I can provide more detail upon request). I'm prototyping some cable routing methods, so I want to 3D print this piece and see if it works the way I want it to.


I'm having a hell of a time trying to get the mouth widening cut to work. I want a smooth transition into the small hole in the cylinder so no stress concentrations arise. I've tried doing a lofted cut, but haven't been successful.


Could one of you SW gurus provide a part so I can see how to create it. I don't care about dimensions, as long as it resembles what I've drawn.


Thanks for your help!!!!
