Here is the tutorial.

  1. Step 1:

    Select top plane and then click Reference geometry >> plane.

  2. Step 2:

    Offset the top plane by 83mm.

  3. Step 3:

    Again offset the top plane by 83mm in opposite direction.

  4. Step 4:

    Plane1>>Sketch.

  5. Step 5:

    Draw this profile.

  6. Step 6:

    Extrude it in downward direction by 28mm.

  7. Step 7:

    Mirror this body about top plane. Uncheck Merge solids.

  8. Step 8:

    Front face >> Sketch.

  9. Step 9:

    Draw a rectangle with center at origin and coincident to the corners.

  10. Step 10:

    Extrude it in backward direction by 32mm.

  11. Step 11:

    Top face>>Sketch.

  12. Step 12:

    Draw two lines.

  13. Step 13:

    Extrude surface by length larger than fork height.

  14. Step 14:

    Cut with surface.

  15. Step 15:

    Select the right surface and direction be outwards the part. Click OK.

  16. Step 16:

    Repeat the same step for other side and hide the surfaces.
