In this movie we're going to focus on circle and rectangles.…Now, because this is the last movie in the sketching chapter, we're also going to bleed…a little bit into part modeling as we create the geometry to sketch on.…It's not important that you understand everything from a part modeling aspect, because we're…going to cover that later, but I think you'll start to see how sketching and part modeling…are connected as we move through this video.…We're going to begin by extruding this base plate that we've been creating over the previous movies.…We're going to right-click and from the Marking menu select Extrude.…
We can then select the two profiles that we created and give them an overall Height of .125.…We can hit Enter on the keyboard to accept that value and our initial base feature has been created.…You can see it here in the browser as Extrusion1.…Before we continue sketching we need one more item added to this part, and that's a fillet.…We're going to fillet each corner.…We're going to start by selecting this first corner and the Heads-Up Display will present…
