Hi… I am sure this is an easy question, but I can’t work it out.
I recently made some spacers (basically 3.2mm thick, 8mm washers with a 3.5mm hole)… But I have figured that they would be more useful if they were joined together, in a ‘strip’ (basically a long oval, with holes in each end, 32mm appart).
I figured this would be easy to make, so I did this.
- Made some guide lines 32mm appart
- Drew an 8mm circle with the hole on one of the guide lines
- Drew a 3.2mm circle in the middle of the first
- Repeated this on the other guideline
My plan then was to draw lines between the 2 sides of the circle, erase what was left and the “push” this up to the thickness I need…
But when I draw the lines, they do not quite hit the wides part of the circle… And when I try and erase the remains of the first circle, it only deletes little bits at a time… Finally, when I push the whole thing up, the curved part at the ends, it not smooth like it is when I make a “washer”.
I am clearly doing something very wrong and have no idea where to start… Could someone give me some pointers?
