Join Leon van den Heever for an in-depth discussion in this video Making the bottom front profile cut, part of Modeling a Cabinet with SOLIDWORKS.
- Next, we are going to add front…and side profile cuts to our bottom.…So, let's head on over into SOLIDWORKS.…On the bottom component,…select the icon and edit part.…We want to add a sketch to the bottom, front plane,…so right-click that and start a new sketch.…I'm going to go ahead and hide the planes,…just for clarity, and I need to rotate slightly,…just to refresh my view…and then I'll go back to a normal two.…
Let's grab the line command, sketch a vertical line…from the origin, down, and I'm going…to select the same line, and let's make it…Construction Geometry.…Selecting this line, head on over…to the search commands option,…and let's find the Dynamic Mirror Entities.…It's not on the pallet by default,…so drag it across.…I'll place mine just below the Mirror Entities,…activate the command.…You'll notice we have two little parallel symbols…on our vertical line, indicating that this tool's active.…
We're going to use the Style Spline.…Starting on the bottom edge, come up diagonally,…a short line to the right and a second to the right again,…
