iLogic Tutorial – 03 – Creating the Front Profile Sketch
Before the front profile can be created, we need to place a point on the construction line that represents the right side extents of the drawer box as shown below. To do so, activate the Base sketch, grab the Point tool from the Draw panel, and click on the line. Make sure you have a coincident constraint glyph present before clicking as shown in the image to the right…
…now right click and finish the sketch, then create the plane for the front profile by clicking on the intersection that creates the front right corner, then clicking on the front line as shown in the image to the right…
…name the plane Front Profile Plane. You should now have something that looks like the image below.
We can now create a sketch called Front Profile on the plane just created by getting the Create 2D Sketch tool from the Sketch panel and clicking on the new plane. Turn off the visibility of the Front Profile Plane at this time, then zoom in on the front right corner, and use the Project Geometry tool to project a point by clicking on the front right corner. With the point in place, you can start a Two Point Rectangle on the point moving up and right. Use the previously created profile as a guide and do exactly the same on this one.
The last thing to do is project the same point that the previous sketch was started on onto this sketch as shown below..
…and create the driven dimension the same way that it was done on the side profile….this tip from the point just projected to the bottom of the dado as shown below…
…then go to the parameter Editor and change the name as shown below.
That finishes up the profiles for the front and side box members, now its time to create the dovetail cutter profiles.
