SOLIDWORKS Part Reviewer: Cabinet Assembly Tutorial

This multibody part starts with an envelope extruded feature. “Up to vertex” was used to to create this feature. With the defining sketches determined, it’s often useful to establish an envelope to work with, giving surfaces to extrude to and from.

Note that this feature can’t be suppressed once it has children. Hide the envelope body and uncheck “Include hidden bodies/components” when checking Mass Properties to avoid volume, mass and volume properties inaccuracies.
