I’m still not getting it, could you do a step by step to how you got to the face frame and door so I can follow it.

Thanks

HI Nigel,

In the Properties menu, click the “+” External Zones:

external-zones-010.jpgImage Enlarger

external-zones-020.jpgImage Enlarger

Note that you can set these as included in the cabinet dimensions (inner) or outside ie. added to the cabinet dims (outer).

cheers,

Ness

Hi Nigel,

You have to create the external zones and add double backs at 0 from the front.

Then set the double backs overpassing to the carcass panels.

Over lapping values can be set to make the frame sit correctly on the carcass, but it will be necessary to adjust manually the door and drawer slacks as well as the rail lengths. If you can set up some standard configurations all this can be automated using sub-methods.

I attach an example.

Hope this helps,

Cheers,

Ness

Hi Ness

This didn’t take long, I’m confused how do I get the face frame and doors on the front? do I still have to use the double back method?

Thanks

Hi Nigel,

Best to do a quick TeamViewer session to sort out your config.

When would you like to meet up?

Hi Nigel,

To print the inside sizes of a cabinet;

In cabinet edit mode,

– make sure that View>Dimensions is on,

– click in the volume to show the inner dims,

– click right and in the context menu select “Permanent Dimensions”

The inner sizes will be displayed permanently, even when you  print the drawing.

It’s easy to set up a fitting link for but hinges just use a groove in the hardware setup.

and apply as normal.

Hi Ness

When you build a cabinet and you put shelves in it, how do you get a print out with the measurements to show where to place them?

Thanks

Hi Nigel,

The way to do this is to split the inner panel into 2 panels before applying the door structure.

Once the double back is framed select the inner panel and use the “Surface split” command to make 2 panels.

Then apply a framed structure to each panel:

If you add a negative slack to the surface split it will give you the overlap necessary for the rebate:

Oh and the doors will need have 10mm overlap so they can have a rebate down the center so no gap when shut.
