Join Leon van den Heever for an in-depth discussion in this video Shelf adjustment holes, part of Modeling a Cabinet with SOLIDWORKS.
- Next we are going to create these adjustment holes…for the shelf.…Let's get into SOLIDWORKS.…Now the planes that we'll be using is the Shelf plane…and then also the SideFront plane,…so make sure that they are currently visible.…Now if you hover over a component…and you hit the Tab key, then it will actually hide it,…so we've done that for the shelf.…But if I select this side face and then activate the…selection view and then just drag this in…so that we can set ourselves up…for easy access to creating holes.…
So go to the Sides component.…Make that editable.…And on this side face I'm going to create a new sketch.…Let's go Normal To…and grabbing the Circle command I'll just…sketch a circle, something like this,…and we can define a diameter on it…and let's go for 5mm should do.…And then what we're going to do is to take the outside edge…of the circle to this plane…and make them tangent.…
So if we actually extend this plane,…then you'll see the tangency going on there.…And let's just define the distance…from this front plane…
