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'm trying to model and I cannot figure out the right approach to do so. I think it should be done using Sheet Metal features but I don't know exactly where to start. Could someone help me out by "putting me on the right track"? I don't need the part modelled (I'm trying to do this myself), but I would appreciate any good suggestions where to start and how to go on :)

Sorry for the (probably) noobish question, but I am in serious need of help. Attaching the drawing.

Many thanks in advance!
