Hello, I am a mechanical engineering student and currently have a student version of solidworks. I am unable to complete a mold design in which I have deadline coming up. Iv noticed a lot of answered  questions on the forums and tutorials however my design is much different to them and desperately need help.

I am designing a mould for a C-ring and I have tried everything. I know it can be done. Any help appreciated.


I think my parting surfaces are right but im not sure im only recently re-learning SolidWorks. I have inserted drafts during the body extrude and based on advice from a lecturer I extruded from the midplane as he said a split mould would be easier to design.
