    Hi Owen, Im rather new at this so bear with me. You take the pin head as a separate part and boolean subtract it from the part. Are saying incorporate the pin into the part then boolean subtract it from the part?

      Hi Mark.

      There a re a couple of good methods here. I'd recommend modeling the pin in the part studio you already have as a new part but in the position it will be located. (Use a revolve for this). Once it's modeled use the boolean tool with the pin as the "tool" your existing part as the "target", as a remove, and with "keep tools selected". You'll then have a perfect cut out for hte pin.

      If that is as clear as mud then post a link to your work so far in your original threads and we'll help.

      Cheers,

      Owen S.
