Join Leon van den Heever for an in-depth discussion in this video Braces and supports, part of Modeling a Cabinet with SOLIDWORKS.
- Again in this session we've got quite a few things to do…so we want to do the drawer supports…and then also the braces for the drawer…so let's get straight into SOLIDWORKS.…Again, to save time, I've already made visible…the planes that we'll be needing, so we've got…the TopThickness plane visible currently,…I've got our FrameWidth down the bottom here,…and then the SideThickness visible,…and we'll also be using our Top Plane,…the SideFront plane, and then also the FrontFrameThickness.…
So make sure these are visible before you continue.…And I'll do a nicer view here,…and then from this TopThickness plane…let's drag out our plane towards the bottom…which will define the height for our first brace.…And right-click to complete the command,…and from it I'm going to drag out another one,…and we can complete the command…and then one more for the second brace's thickness.…
Okay now from this second plane…let's define then the distance here between them,…so we'll make the height 30 millimeters then for the braces,…and then the distance between the braces…
