Fastest way to draw a certain figure

What is the fastest way to draw the following figure:

 

The fastest I have seen anyone doing it is 70 seconds.  If you can do it faster than that will you please let me know? Please mention your exact time, and program version.

 

Thanks much.

Probably about  30 minutes.   40 seconds to draw what's dimensioned, then about 1/2 an hour or so trying to locate the guy that did the original to get the missing information. I did "guess" at the depth of the notch so I could at least finish the outline.   A few minutes would be reasonable if all the necessary info was there.

 

The animation is vanilla AutoCAD2011, OSnaps, OSnap Tracking, Polar Tracking, Dynamic Input enabled. (all standard features)

Thanks for replying.

 

The two arcs in the figure are meant to be concentric.  I have indicated that by drawing the R1.5 and R4.0 lines out of the same point.  Sorry if this is confusing.  Here is a better version (I hope!) of the same figure.

 

 

Thanks much for taking the time to draw and post.

Regards,

Abhiram

52 seconds after adding in the 30 degree lines at the bottom of the notch.  I don't think I could do it any faster, and honestly there are some overlapping lines as a result of trimming the hexagon that I should have cleaned up to do a proper job.

Thanks much!

p.s. I am keeping the discussion open to see whether anyone else has other ideas.  If anyone can do it faster using other tools that would also be great.

That was fun. This is how I did it and was around 38 seconds.  Unable to post video how did you attach it.
