Jump to Section
  1. Start with a top down sketch for the 3/4" plywood (Leave at least 1/16 space around the frame to make it easy to take the bumpers on and off.)
  2. Extrude the pieces to 5 inches tall. Hint use the Extrude Individual featurescript.
  3. Draw a sketch on the end of one of the pieces of plywood with the 2.5" circles for the pool noodles with the outer profile being in the shape of a D.
  4. Use a sweep command to wrap the bumper profile around the plywood frame.
  5. Add a fillet at the corners to clean up the look
