It took me a few to figure it out also, but what hes doing is extrude/cutting the extra material out of the piston holes at a depth of 160mm from the top of the piston surface.
So pick the "top" of the piston surface and create your sketch there, then look at my picture that Ive attached for a more comprehensive understanding.
Draw all 12 holes like the ones you see in my screenshot and then extrude/cut them to a depth of 160mm from the top of the pistons. Hope this helps you out!!
I don't know how far these cylinders should be apart from eachother. Also I dont know if the method I used is correct. mirror the original body and use move/copy command. Need your help buddies. thank you"
here is a picture of the dimension you required:
From what I noticed by looking at your added picture you went to far when drawing your rectangle, ill highlight the area Im talking about in the same picture you posted! I've drawn an orange line where you should have stopped!! Hope it helps!!
The arrow pointing in the direction of the extrusion looks funky also but that just may be the perspective im getting from the screenshot.
I'm having trouble with step 9. I go to extrude and I'm getting an error "unable to create this feature because it would result in zero-thickness geometry". I think it's something to do with direction 2 because I can get it to extrude to the body just fine but it wont extrude to the surface. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
mirror all bodies with using right plane
Problem is that i dont have any bodies
only cut extrude, boss extrude, sketches, mirrors etc on the left side. They can be selected but doesn't make a mirrored object like on the left.
So what should we do before we mirror????
