I have been told that in 3D Modeling there are 2 general methods Artistic and the Engineering.

The Artistic method is where the Modeler worries more about how the final project looks good.

The Engineering Modeler generally models real world objects & generally prefers to model the real world measurements.

I’m a self-taught Hobbyist and I know that I’m an Engineering Modeler, I’m trying to make an Old Sealed Beam Light (using 3 Spheres) but I’m having trouble connecting the reflector to the housing, I can’t match the diameter reflector (6 inches) to housing (6.5 inches) I can’t scale down or extrude up & the edges meet the other.

How I can I ensure my measurements will match each other?
