Drawing the Kitchen Sink

In this section, you’ll draw a double sink with one basin larger than the other
(see Figure 5.56). You’ll use OFFSET, FILLET, and TRIM to create the sink from the counter and wall lines.

1. Make sure I05-16-CompleteStove.dwg (M05-16-CompleteStove.dwg)
is open. Zoom in to the sink area, keeping the edges of the refrigerator
and stove in view.
2. Create the top and bottom edges by using the OFFSET command:
a. Offset the inside wall line 2 1⁄2″ (64 mm) down.
b. Restart the OFFSET command, and offset the inside wall line
1′-8″ (508 mm).

This forms the top and bottom edges of the sink. Next, you will
draw the left and right edges of the sink.
3. Enable Selection Cycling by entering SELECTIONCYCLING↵ at the
command line, and then entering 2↵.
Selection Cycling is a useful tool that helps you select the right
object in crowded areas of a drawing.
4. Restart the OFFSET command, and set the offset distance to 16″
(406 mm).
You’re going to offset the right side of the counter 1′-4″ (406 mm)
to the left, but it coincides with the left side of the refrigerator. You’ll
use Selection Cycling to ensure that you select the correct line.
5. At the Select object to offset: prompt, select the right edge of
the counter. Because you enabled Selection Cycling in step 3, and
both the right edge of the counter and left edge of the refrigerator
coincide with one another, the Selection dialog box is displayed (see
Figure 5.57).

6. Select the Line option from the Selection dialog box, and complete
the OFFSET command by picking a point to the left of the selected
line. Notice how the object highlighted in the Selection dialog box is
also highlighted (with dashes) inside the drawing (see Figure 5.57

7. Offset this new line 2′-9″ (838 mm) to the left. This forms the outside
edge of the sink (see the top of Figure 5.58).

offset lines to form the inside edges of the sink (middle), and the finished sink (bottom)
8. Fillet the corners of this rectangle to clean them up, using a radius of 0

9. Perform the following offsets to draw the sink basins:
a. Offset the left side, bottom, and right sides of the sink 1.5″ (38 mm)
to the inside.
b. Offset the top side 2.5″ (64 mm) to the inside.
c. Offset the left basin edge to the right 9″ (229 mm).
d. Offset the right basin edge to the left 1′-7″ (483 mm). This forms
the basis of the inside sink lines (see the middle of Figure 5.58).
10. Trim away the horizontal top and bottom inside sink lines between
the two middle vertical sink lines.
11. Fillet the four corners of each basin with a 2″ (51 mm) radius to clean
them up. Use the Multiple option of the FILLET command so that you
won’t need to restart the command continually.
12. Fillet all four outside sink corners with a 1.5″ (38 mm) radius. This
finishes the sink (see the bottom of Figure 5.58). Use Zoom Previous
to view the whole kitchen with the completed sink.
13. Save your file as I05-17-KitchenSink.dwg (M05-17-KitchenSink.dwg).
This completes the kitchen area. You drew no new lines to complete this task
because you created most of them by offsetting existing lines and then trimming
or filleting them. Keep this in mind as you move on to the bathroom.
