SOLIDWORKS Part Reviewer: Chest of Drawers Tutorial

Chest of Drawers: This highly detailed, multi-body model has over a 150 bodies and is created mainly from extruded features. There are several examples of different types of wood joints. Dovetail joints are used in the drawer creation. Mortise and Tenon joints (open and closed) and tongue and groove joints are also used to build the framework of the chest. Multi-contour sketches are reused to save time and to act as layout reference sketches, allowing for easy modification of geometry.

Other features in the model include:  sketch driven patterns, chamfers, Move/Copy Body, and one linear pattern.
