Hey Everyone,

 

I am messing with the sheet metal feature in solid works, and started with a basic motor mount idea.

 

I am now tilting the sleeve of the motor mount on an angle, and tapering the sheet metal piece from the base of 3" too 2-1/4" centtred on the sleeve. Where should i start in modeling a sheet metal piece that would connect the sleeve and the base plate?

 

The " motor mount - design challenge" file is what i first started out with.

The " motor mount - design challenge fill in the blank" file is what i am working with now... The sleeve and plate are constrained too where i want them.

 

The attached pdf is a rough sketch of what I am trying for

 

Thanks for any assistance.
