Round Peg in a Square hole - how to mate

Can someone help me with a clue as to how I mate a round bush into a square tube please?


The attached assembly drawing shows a square tube and a turned nickle bush. The OD of the smaller diameter of the bush is the same as the internal length and width of the tube. The idea is that the bush fits inside the tube. A second bush will be added to the other end as well. Later a 2mm diameter axle will run in the two bushes.


Whilst I can do this in reality I can't find the right combination of mates in Solidworks to make it happen


thanks in anticipation
