Moderate Machine Part 1:
The basic shape for this part is an octagon and it was created using a polygon sketch entity with eight sides. This part has mostly extruded features with a few revolved features and one lofted cut. Also the perimeter wall is a thin extrude using offset entities from the outside boundary. Offset entities makes the feature more robust and can handle changes better.
