angled object from a flat surface


Good Day!

I am just starting with SW and did some of the beginner tutorials but i was trying to replicate this one. I did use sketchup and would like to concentrate on using SW.

its a simple base plate 3mm tall and a square on the top that is angled with a 9 mm hole.

Any tip/tutorial link that shows how to create an angled object on a flat surface? I tried to draw a square on the surface and use extrude but cant make it go on an angle.

Thanks so much!



two easy ways for you to choose:

1.Change the sketch plane

2.Specifies the direction of Extrude, and the End surface

Just create a plane at an angle somewhere offset from the base using Reference Geometry & build a sketch on it & then extrude up to body or surface. To create this you can also take the help of the link given below:
