Violin.pngFirst thing I noticed is that your sketch is not constrained.

Place (dimensioned) symmetrical sketch points and then create your spline.


The vertical line on the left side isn't, well, vertical.


There is a very very very very sharp point midway at top.  Nothing can be manufactured with a sharp point like that.

On the other side the point isn't evey symmetrical and loops over itself. 

I recommend you read this ,

then perhaps do the Vacuum tutorial in my signature before you start your part over.
