I am trying to model an epicyclic differential casing in solidworks but unable to do so because of its complexity.

    Hi Surya,

    Well.... it's been a few months, but if you're still trying to model that part...

    I'd suggest starting at the top plane, at the origin, extruding the ring flange and its cross sectional shape, with holes.

    The shell feature should be applied to the large cavity. Then create planes as needed to extrude the bolts,etc.
