Join Leon van den Heever for an in-depth discussion in this video Shelf, part of Modeling a Cabinet with SOLIDWORKS.
- Next we will quickly mirror the drawer support…from the previous session,…and then also add the shelf for our cabinet.…So, heading on over to SOLIDWORKS,…let's edit the drawer support component.…So edit part, and we'll take our extrude,…and then create a mirror.…So if we go to features, linear pattern,…and fly-out menu, and do a mirror command again.…
Make sure that we are using bodies,…and not features, so right-click and clear that.…Go to the body section, select it from the graphics view,…and we're going to mirror again…about the right plane of the active component.…Turn off the merge and show the full preview…if you don't see it in the graphics view.…And OK to complete the command.…Let's exit the edit mode,…and then go to insert new part,…and then let's create a part for our shelf.…
So name it shelf, and save that.…Select the front plane, exit out of the sketch,…and make sure that we then right-click…on the shelf and start a new sketch.…Now notice that I've just used the shelf thickness.…That's okay. For now we'll just keep going.…
