I’m modeling what could be categorized as a canister or container with a lid that is held on by latches (3) that are retained by “ears” (one on each side of the latch). The ears will be a part of the injection molded cylinder and therefor require a draft angle of 1 deg. So far I’ve been inserting a profile of the ears, extruding them and then inserting a rectangular plane, tilt it to the proper angle, extrude it a sufficient distance, moving it to the proper location and then using Boolean difference to cut the little wedge off of the ears.
This seems a little “brute force” to me. I*'m new to 3D so my mind isn’t fully adapted yet., but there should be a simpler method.
Thanks, in advance for helping this 69 year old “newbie”
