By deduction,

– your door seems to be built-in, so you would need to use an N rule (Underpassing / Non-priority panel) to follow the door when placing the hinges.

– Your door is applied to the upright, so you will need to use a P rule (Overpassing / priority panels) to follow the door again.

For example
IF Side / Door > using 80-80/600-P
THEN Door / Upright > using 80-80/600-P

as the adjustment following the same panel move the two links with the same value will remain aligned

FINALY if your door are “Applied Global” you should used 80-80/600-P for both

Hops that’s helpflul, Alex

Hi Alex

Thanks for your reply, I will have a look at what you suggested. Will it be a problem with your method of positioning the holes through identical rules, if I then have to move a fitting manually to not collide with a shelf? As you can see on the first picture, I have moved hinge 3 100 mm. Also the hinges is using a different zone as reference than the lower vertical division does. 

All the best

I have a few solutions in mind,

Like using fitting linked between doors and upright

The use of a similar reference rule ensures alignment.

this could then be automated with the creation of a new type of upright.

by creating first link between side and door and secondary between “spaced upright” and door into fitting link sub-methods

Then, as in your case, the back seems to be already solidly fixed laterally, the connection of the shelf is perhaps not imperative, and the connection of the uprights to the bottom could be placed after the adjustment, and with hardware without screwing, like wedgefixe.


Cheers, Alexandre

Hi there

I have a design with drawers behind doors. I made a veritcal division recessed from the cabinet sides to account for hinges, and at the moment during installation I can’t mount those divisions until after the doors has been properly attached and adjusted due to lack of room for tools. My idea was to have a hole in the division to make adjustment possible when construction is fully assembled and put a cover cap over the hole. So ideally I would want the hinge fitting to add a 54 mm hole in the other direction, cutting anything in its way. Though I can’t make a cut depth with negative numbers. I there another way of making that inspection hole correspond to a fittings position? I’ll attach some screenshots for clarification.
