Join Leon van den Heever for an in-depth discussion in this video Top, part of Modeling a Cabinet with SOLIDWORKS.
- Next, we will create the top of our cabinet.…So let's get into SolidWorks.…The planes that we will be using is the…"Top" and the "TopThickness" planes,…so make sure they are visible.…We'll also need the "Back" plane and then the "Width"…and the "BottomFront" planes.…So I'm going to start a,…or rather insert a "New Part" first.…And let's name this "Top".…
And save.…"Front Plane" of the assembly, exit the sketch.…And then on our "Top" plane, we'll create a new sketch.…And start by sketching a rectangle,…and the same for rectangle.…Sketch it out something like this.…And then let's define our edges.…So take the left edge, to the bottom width,…or the width rather, and then we'll take this bottom…and make that collinear to the front.…
Make our centers vertical.…And take the top edge and make that…collinear to the back plane.…Now let's do an extrusion of this.…So "Features", base extrude,…"Up To Surface" end condition.…And then let's use our "TopThickness" plane…and right-click to complete the command.…Now...…
just checking, that's looking good.…
