I am a cabinet maker
I have been searching for that and i am wondering
If there is a simple way to make the 45 angle cut on this box .
thanks so much for your time
I think you would benefit from creating an assembly from multiple parts instead of creating a multibody part. That way you could model the chamfers into your cabinet walls and easily piece them together in an assembly.
I will respectfully disagree with Tyler Williams. Multi-body Parts can be your friend. I'd advise you to learn to use weldments.

Glenn Schroeder - I would say the same thing to you - Being able to take advantage of Custom Property Tab Builder, Custom Properties, Macros, BOM's, Drawings and other great SW features, I'd do it in multiple part Assembly everyday...
1- Sketch top surface of the part 4 lines from corner to corner (where you want them to split)
2- end sketch,
3- select the sketch
4- go to insert - features - split
5- press cut part
6- mark all 4 new bodies to keep
I actually like multi body part . Its very convenient when you wanna be faster by doing multi piece
the only thing i am questionning is how to do a simple assembly 45 angle cut for all the part like my drawing
Do what Seth Tayfun post mentions
As a Part weldment - Something like this ?
this is using a configured shape for sides shape and extrude for bottom
I've just used same thickness for bottom as sides ie blind extrude, but you could extrude up to point of chamfer of one of the sides ,
or link bottom thickness to thickness of sides.
Anyway whatever happened to the good old mortise and tenon ???.......
Attach your *.sldprt file here.

it's easy to create a sketch and make a cut. But what result do you want to achieve? Do you want cut a wich makes some room in the corners? Or do you want to split the box into 5 parts/bodies? What do you except from the back face of your box? With a simple cut you will cut this face also into pieces! I don't believe that this is what you want, right?
I would do the following:
- use the split feature to separate the back face/body
- create a sketch like you did in your screenshot
- then split the frame into 4 bodies
No cut feature...
I have attached a sample part for you (SWX2019).
I'm going to give you the advice I wish I'd taken years ago.
For woodwork Multibody parts are tempting, but they are more trouble than they are worth.
Do yourself a favour and follow the advice of John Stoltzfus.
Myself I work a little differently.
Here I have just one part that uses configurations .. No External References to break.
Notice I always model around the default planes and then create new reference planes
This can be the starting point for anything..
I've done you a simple example with some properties linked to feature dims. (these are far more reliable than weldment properties)
Trust me .. Cutist's don't work for woodwork. Leave them to the Steel Guys.
For the features I'd follow the machining operations you perform in the shop.
Try to make all the features reference reference geometry so that you can turn them on or off independently.
..and give them meaningful names!
You can get as fancy as you like with equations, but I'll leave you to find that out..
You can also go turbo with Design Tables, but a simple option is just saving a Config Table
It might seem like more work to make an Assembly but it is time well invested.
Cutlists (BOMS) are a doddle and you can edit all your dims straight from the assembly.
For something like this I should probably have set up some derived configurations to take advantage of link to parent.
but it's just a simple example.
create weld profiles for your stock wood and you can have it make all the corner treatments that you like.
