The next solid for the project using the Slab Feature tool. After the slab is placed it is rotated to the appropriate angle. The solid is then unioned (joined) to the base solid using the Union Feature tool.
- [Narrator] In this section, we'll be adding…the auxiliary solid, so I'mna continue…to work in my rotated view, here.…So, what I need to do is place a slab feature or solid…here in this area and what I'm going to do is…is I'mna first place it in a vertical orientation…and then I'mna rotate it, my 25 degree angle.…So, we're going to be using a new tool for this.…So, it's over here in feature modeling,…it's called slab feature and this allows us…to add a basic primitive type shape.…
So, you can see here in the pallette,…they have slab feature, they have sphere,…cylinder, cone, torus, and wedge.…So, these are the basic primitive solids…that a lot of different CAD programs have available.…So, if you don't want to use the profile method,…you can always draw in a primitive solid and then modify it;…so that's what we're going to do for this one.…So, I need to punch in my length, width, and height.…So, I'mna click all these check boxes.…My axis, we can use the accudraw or points method.…
So, now for my length, I can just pick…
