    How would you approach modeling this part?

      I have a relatively simple part to model. I can model something that will work but I thought it would be interesting to see what approach others would take.

      I can go into more detail if needed.


      Here is the basic premise:


      The part is a simple short cylinder. OD x ID x THK.

      The part is cut in half thru the center.

      The two halves are tack welded back together then machined as a single piece.

      The tack weld is removed and you end up with two pieces.

      The two pieces can then be mated together and share a common axial centerline. Basically the process just removes the saw kerf.

      Any thoughts or comments would be appreciated.
