I found this challenge on another SOLIDWORKS forum recently and thought you guys might like to give it a try.
When participating, try not to give away the answer. If anyone is stuck and wants help let's make use of the Message/Mail system. Solving a puzzle is less exciting when the answer is easily found.
The goal is to model the part in as few features as possible. While this is often a bad idea in an actual work environment, it can be a fun challenge.
This part can be made with three features. Give it a try.
Do you have some interesting challenges to add to this discussion? Add them below and let's solve some puzzles, and learn new modeling techniques.
