Edit the sketch.

Drag one of the vertical lines.

Notice that there is not a coincident constraint to the origin centerpoint.

How is this part made and what is the material?

 

Is this a bent sheet metal part?

I am making the component to add to my portfolio to illustrate what i have already made and to explain to someone how they could manufacture it. If it helps show you what i am trying to achive i have linked the assembly file at its current stage as well as the frame section which i am trying to put the hole in. The hole will have a bolt put through for masses to be placed to counter balance the rig. (its a camera steadi)
