Modeling a Valve Handle

Having difficulties in attaching spheres on the outer handle

  1. <LI>Revolve a circular shape.</LI>
    <LI>Extrude cut downward to make spaces in the handle </LI>
    <LI>Revolve a circle to create the outer handle, done last to provide a round feel in the spaces, instead of being cut.</LI>
    <LI>Tried to place spheres, but found difficulty in finding a datum. </LI>
    <LI>Need to pattern the spheres later</LI>
