Lower Hinge

  • Extrude - Select the circle profiles and extrude by 2mm symmetrically.

  • Join - Extrude the profile below by -2mm:

    • Set the start to object, and use the flat section as the new object profile

  • Extrude the screw hole - extrude the middle screw hole profile, setting the distance to all

Extrude to Object

There is a small gap between our parts that we need to fill.

Fusion has a handy feature for this in the extrude dialog box in the extent type called to object.
