Help: design approach suggestions


New member
Hey all,

I'm new in this forum and quite fresh in Solidworks :) I have a part which I want to model (screenshot of drawing attached), and I feel that this should be done using the Sheet Metal features. However, I cannot figure out the correct approach for making this part. So far, I have made a simple bracket (top-down view) and don't know how to add the geometry of the front plane, as well as the angled part of the bracket.

Could someone with more experience help me get on the right track? I do not want the entire part done (that's what I'm trying to do :D), but only guidelines for the correct approach.

Sorry for (probably) noobish questions, but any help will be appreciated!
