hi i am trying to model the part given in the diagram. I am not able to place hole as circled exactly as shown in the figure if anyone could help me would be really helpful
This is one of many ways of doing it Harsha
hello Steven thank you so much for your reply. The 3d part shows the hole to be different but the output which I get is different. If you could give your comments on this would be helpful.
and i think it will help, when you upload your SWX file here instead of tons of screenshots and fotos.
Then we can see what's wrong with your model instead of guessing all day.

Your problem is way before the hole. The large counterweight portion is not concentric with the center, therefore it looks all messed up. Go back to the beginning and start over.
Thanks Josh will work on it.
Of course, whoever made the original drawing deserves 20 lashes with a wet noodle....

We would be able to help better if you would attach your file.
How can I attach a file to a forum post?
Hello all I have attached the part files for your reference along with the drawing image.
I looked at your part... Can you give us some background? Since you are using the educational version, I assume you are a student. Do you have an instructor? Did they teach you anything about how to constrain sketches? Constraining sketches is THE foundational concept of part modeling in SolidWorks. I can't emphasize that enough... If you don't get that right, you cannot be successful. But, the good news is it's fairly straightforward to do. If you have an instructor, you should go to them and get help understanding how to constrain sketches. If they don't know what you're talking about, please send them here.
Hi josh I was a student. I am learning the software by myself and that's the reason I had come up with the basic questions.

OK... What text are you using? Have you completed the built-in tutorials (Help->SolidWorks Tutorials)? From the little bit that I can see of your text, it is talking about assemblies already. You may be trying to skip ahead and accelerate your progress? Unfortunately, doing this is a recipe for failure rather than success. Foundational concepts are particularly important, and if you miss them by skipping ahead you will be banging your head in frustration later.
Thanks for your guidance. I will do as per your suggestion. I am also using solid works power guide 2018 by CADartifex
Here's where the problem is. You dimensioned your 24mm dimension to the wrong point. It is meant to be to the center of the crank and not the virtual point created by the 4mm fillet.
Now, with that said, you need to work on fully defining your sketches. It was very difficult to track down exactly what was causing the issue when none of the sketches or features were tied together.
it's very important that you will create fully defined sketches. To achieve this please use:
- tangent and other relations to get correct aligned arcs and a stable sketch
- use mirror for symmetrical sketches
Further you should use
- offset contours
- mirror features (to the other side)
Hello all thank you so much for all your kind replies and time. I was able to solve the problem. Thanks so much again.
