Hi Everyone,

Thanks Michel for this good advice. I would also certainly simplify construction with on continuous thick back.

Just for the record though, you can split the back with the surface split command and then make one of the resulting panels thicker:

All the best,

Hi Petar,

I see what you mean but if you realy want 2 different backs grooved together then you will need to add this manually.

I must say I do not see the added value in this . I would use the same thick panel on the complete width. 

A single back panel is stronger than 2 different ones.

The material cost will be lower because you are using a single panel size.

Also there will be no joint visible in the back . It will be nice and flat over the complete width.

I would advise you to use a single panel size, but if you choose for the 2 different ones it will be a manual intervention.

It is a very basic intervention. On the software side it is not possible to do it but it would not speed up your process either

Hope this helps 😉

regards

Michel

Hi Michel,

i am trying to build bedroom L cabinet, which will be build from two separate cabinets.

You can see from attached picture what I want to accomplish. Since i will have shelves on the right side i need thick panels so i can put shelf supports on the back side of cabinet. On the left and right side of cabinet i plan to put rod support (flange) so i can put clothes hanger on the left side of cabinet, and because of that i don’t need thick panel on back for that part of cabinet. I have already plan to take a notes and add groove manually and make left side of panel wider, but I just wanted to know is it possible to do that over software 😉

Hi Petar

There is no link available to change from recess to groove between 2 backs and I was not able to find any workaround for this. 

Maybe Ness knows a trick 😉 . I can only advise you to take  this in consideration and to add length to the thin back when you have the cutlist. You can then groove the thick back and assemble.

What is your purpose of having two different thickness of backs ?

regards

Michel

Hi,

I am trying to create a cabinet with two different types of materials for back (one is thick and second is thin).

I have create free shape of cabinet, and with two backs (shape.png in attachment).

I have set up two different material for back (left is thin, right is thick), and then i have try to setup groove on thin part. For left, top and bottom grove works fine, but I am not able to add groove for thick part of back (groove.png in attachment)

Should i do this in some other way, or this is not possible to do?shape.PNGImage Enlarger
