I know there is n easy way to build this but i can not figure out how. Can anyone walk me through the steps to build this easily? I need to basically have a 1/8" circle with 1/8" straight pieces extruding out every 45 degrees.

  • $\begingroup$ I think you should rewite the question trying to focus more on what your difficulties are in the modeling (exact measures? topology? extruding?...) or specific workflow doubts. Try too keep the question "wide", so it can be useful for other simiar issue too. The risk is that the question will not be well received and abandoned. $\endgroup$ – Carlo Jun 2 '16 at 14:24

Blender was never meant for precision work. One way to get similar results is to use arrays.

Start with proper sized small segments. Add curve + array modifier arround its circle part,

For circumference extrusions it's similar. Use 'object offset' setting in an array modifier.
