Hi all,

To learn solidworks, I am re-modeling some Rhino 3d I did in the past. So different!

I like solidworks a lot, but it is quite frustrating at the beginning!

this is what i am working on now:

 

(rhino)

 

3 cylinders (alined 45 deg to each pair of axes) intersect a hollow sphere

Of the resulting shape, i use the red surfaces...

...to model 3 rings, which i connect with 3 spheres. That's it.

now, i reached this point in Solidworks:

my question is: how can i pattern this feature to get the other 2 rings in the position i want?

 

hope it's clear
