Help on fully constraining sketch

Post by duckmug »

I am sorry for the naive question but I am kinda stuck on choosing a path that would be ideal to fully constraining this pocket sketch.

Basically the four corners should have the same dimensions/angles etc but I don't know how to properly constrain those arcs so that nothing moves.

Would really appreciate your lights. You can find it attached. Thank you.

Since it is symmetrical you can only do one corner and user 2 mirrors in a multitransform to create the other corners. This simplifies the sketch.
