Hello, I am new to SolidWorks and was wondering if someone could explain how I could design the following object. If you can provide step by step directions, I would sincerely appreciate it!
Thank you very much for your help!
I would start with a revolve of a circle to get the main ring. Then I'd do a revolve about an axis that is tangent to the ring to create the bump at the bottom. Then I'd do a cut extrude to cut out those notches on the sides. And lastly, just add fillets to smooth out sharp edges. I've attached a sample file.
I currently use SolidWorks 2013 and when I try to open the file it says it cannot open as it is from a future version. Can you please send it as a DXF/DWG file? I read online that this will open in older versions of SolidWorks.
Thanks again for your help!
I could save it as a neutral file type but you wouldn't see the features I used to build the part so it wouldn't help you make it with your own dimensions. Here are some images of my workflow.

Thank you very much Tony!
