Join Leon van den Heever for an in-depth discussion in this video Making the bottom profile sweep cuts, part of Modeling a Cabinet with SOLIDWORKS.
- Before we get to cutting the necessary profiles in…this bottoms component, let's quickly add proper dimensions…for this bottom section so on the panel BottomWidth plane,…double click on that.…It will present the dimension for that plane.…We can drag it out or you don't have to.…Double click on the Dimension…and we can specify this as…272mm…for the base width.…I'll double click that.…Let's make this 42mm.…
The BaseFront, I'm going to make 230.…The BottomFront,…let's make that 34mm.…The Back, 460mm.…The Thickness, 15.…And the Bottom, 60mm.…Notice we need to do a rebuild, so ctrl + q,…and everything is updated.…Let's get straight to the profiles.…
Go to the Bottom part.…Go to Edit Part.…And I'm going to start a new sketch on this back face.…And follow my lead as I get this done.…So let's use a three-point arc…and sketch the arc for now, something like this.…Grab the Line command,…come out horizontally…and maybe out to here.…I'm going to use the Style Spline command…and before I do, I just noticed I'd like to add…a vertical line here.…
