There are several ways of adding handles, each having it’s pro and cons.
If you just need the holes drilled you can use fitting links or single panel fittings. If you use inner tooling beware that the holes are considered pockets in CNC output.
If you want the 3D visual you must add the 3D accessory to the hardware definition (fittings hardware or single panel hardware).
If you want to make your own 3D accessory you don’t have to use the zz/3d-accessory style. This is just a style that sets the panels assembly and materials to simplify the model. The actual DXF 3D model that you export to become the 3D accessory will work fine what ever the materials.
Have you seen all the Quick Design advanced hardware videos here:

Have you installed Quick Design Libraries? There is a video tutorial on how to do that:
otherwise, you can always add holes via inner toolings or single panel fittings if you know your handle dimensions.

I have been looking at how to add a door handle to a cabinet, however it seems I am limited with options. I have watched the video on this site (how to add a 3d accessory) and when I tried to follow the instruction on how to create a handle I didn’t seem to have the zz/3d-accessory option to select at start in order to create one. Is there another way to add a handle other than the limited options available as I couldn’t find the length/width I want? Or is it possible to draw lines or arrows to indicate positionings etc as this will also do for me?
Thanks in advance!
