iLogic Tutorial – 02 – Creating the Drawer Elevation Sketch
Start a sketch on the XZ Origin plane, and name it Drawer Elevation. Grab the Project Geometry tool from the Draw panel, and project the end of the rigging line that represents the width extents on the right hand side of the model (X+)….
…now starting on this new point, draw a two point rectangle up and to the left, then a smaller rectangle overlapping it to get something like the image to the right.
Now grab the Trim tool from the Modify panel, and trim off all of the portion of the smaller rectangle that lies outside of the larger one. Right click to bring up the context menu, choose Split from the list, then split the left line at both the top and bottom of the little rectangle.
Now add the parameters. Start with the two parameters for the dado (small rectangle), then move on to the drawer bottom reveal (height of the dado from the bottom), then go onto the larger rectangle which is the drawer side.
The last thing to do on this sketch is to establish a reference parameter. First I changed the dimension display back to Value from Expression (it’s on the right click menu whenever a sketch is active) so that the sketch isn’t so cluttered, then place a dimension between the center point and the bottom of the dado as shown below…
…now go to the parameter editor and under the reference parameters there will be a new parameter that should be named d8 with an Equation of 8.750 in. Change the name as shown below (note the underscores between words). This completes the side profile, next, we will sketch the front profile…
