Join Leon van den Heever for an in-depth discussion in this video Blocking out the bottom, part of Modeling a Cabinet with SOLIDWORKS.
- Now that we have the planes in place…for the bottom component,…let's go ahead and exit the Skeleton Edit mode,…collapse this, and insert Components flyout menu, New Part.…Let's name this part Bottom and Front Plane…and exit the sketch.…Now I'm still in Edit mode for this bottom component…so what I can do now is on the top plane…right-click and I'm going to start…a new sketch on that plane.…Grab my corner rectangle command.…
I'm going to not necessarily put it on the origin for now.…Let's see how this works out…and left-click this top line,…Control-Left Select the backplane that we created…and make them collinear.…Let's take the bottom line,…Control-Select the first plane which is our base front…and let's make them collinear as well.…And then what I'm going to do is I'm going to take…the midpoint of this center rectangle…Control-Select the origin and I'm going…to make them vertical to one another, all right?…So that should establish some symmetry for me,…and then I'm going to select the left edge…and Control-Select the BaseWidth plane…
