    I'm making a 3D part from this drawing. Making the outer rectangle with the filleted edges is pretty simple, but what I can't figure out is how to make the hole.

    The hole consists of the rounded area in the middle along with the partial rectangular hole. The hole looks something like ={]

    I don't know how to get the hole to be placed within a certain distance relative to the edges. Of course it has to be dimensioned but I can't seem to select the edge.

    I'm at a complete loss as to how to work through it.

    The "hole" can be located relative to the top of the 3D object then moved down into the proper position the distance shown as H4.

    Are there any other views of this object? Something about it looks off. Anyway, this is what I came up with.

    What's up with the line circled in red?

    I also had that question, so i'm planning on making 2 different drawings. One with a large empty space and one with that arc remaining. There is a side view showing how much the part is extruded (9.53mm).

    I don't know if I can particularly follow the steps shown in the image. I'm still fairly new to AutoCAD. I appreciate all the help, thank you so much!

    Can you post an image of the side view? It sounds like there is a "wing" on either side of the center hole is that it?

    Creating the hole in the object was just a matter of incorporating it as part of the 2D profile that was then extruded as a solid. The remaining arc on top is actually a surface which is what you get when you extrude a line or part of a circle.

    Did you make the 2D profile by simply using lines and arcs? By connecting lines does AutoCAD identify it as one part?

    That's one way to do it but remember you have to use the PEDIT command and Join option to make all those lines and arcs a single entity. Then when it is extruded you end up with a solid and not a bunch of surfaces.

    OK. Not what I was expecting. Guess I had something else in mind. Thanks.

    After thinking about it I don't see any reason to have the line that I circled in red previously as part of the 3D model. It makes to sense to me.
