Here's the model

I wrote this tutorial

Let me know if there could be improvements. One thing is that fillets couldn't be circular patterned, and the other thing is I couldn't figure out a way to create the upper group of polka dots without using "make a new part, move new part, pattern, then boolean union".

I couldn't figure out how to use slot mate so I resorted to using tangent mate instead

And I'm using text in a sketch for annotation, did I miss a real annotation feature somewhere?
