Now that we have our BaseExtrusion, we're ready to continue on.…The process from here on out does begin to get a little bit repetitive.…So I'll make sure to call out all the actions that I'm taking, and more specifically, call…out any new actions that will help you better understand the Extrusion process.…To begin, we need to create a sketch on the top face of this part.…We can select that face and use the heads-up display to create a new sketch.…We know that this boss needs to be centered on the part.…In order to do that, I'm going to create a line, I'm going to lock it to the midpoint…of one of the projected edges, and I'm going to actually enter its dimension here in the heads-up display.…
In this case, it's going to be .319 from the edge.…I'm going to hit Escape on my keyboard to get out of the command, and I'm now ready…to create the circle that will create the boss.…From the Marking menu, I can select Circle, and I can lock the center point to the end…of the line I just drew by left-clicking on its endpoint.…
