In this AutoCAD tutorial, we have learned how to grow an array on an ellipse. Today we are going to combine that skill with others.

The following is the image of today’s experiment.
Now, we would love to provide the following images. These will lessen your confusion and help you know where to start.
Notice an ellipse of 55 x 108 in the figure below, it is what you have to use to create the array. Those small circles are equally spaced around the path of the array.
The center of the Big circle is shown on the image below and denoted by A.
The following image gives a dimension that will be important while designing.
The red line on the last image shows a line of symmetry that will be used to get the down part of the object completed.
If this is confusing, I will invite you to check how to build such an ARRAY here.
Note you will be required to use the OFFSET command in this exercise.
