Sounds simple right
what i actually want is this so its a hole in the sheetmetal that leaves the sleeve intact to enable a thread to be formed within it
im sure a form tool could do it but is there an easier way?
Revolve. (Or Extrude and Fillet.)
If you do this a lot, then I would create a Form tool.
Go for form tool. Grab the one from library and modify to suit your needs.
