hi guys when it comes to designing a handle that will be welded onto a piece of square tubing so you can carry it. How would you go about designing it in solidworks?


for example say the steel tubing frame is complete would you create the handle sketch/extrude in that part file or will you have to create an assembly and draw your handle there?


I tried to make an assembly but the dimensions are hard to match up and found it easier to just create the handle within the frame part file so the dimensions match since this is an asymmetrical piece.


what do you think? because I need to get this to my machinist so he can make it properly.


I can later just separate the parts and dimension them in drawings that way?
