Hi Ness/Stefan

I'm trying without much success to customize the face frames to suit our needs to move forward. This maybe due to operator error!

This is the process I've gone through but still not achieving the results we are after:

NEW CABINET

Method      z/face-frame/60-19

CABINET BOXFUL SUB-METHOD

Duplicated Z-FF/60-19, I have changed the priority's and rules to match the way we would need it.

Apply the method to the whole cabinet

Then I highlight sides, top and bottom and apply

PANEL STRUCTURES

faceframe/60-19 side

faceframe top-bot

This is what I get, as you can see I have an issue with the back panel.

From this point I go and change the face frame size to what I need.

I highlight to face frame then go to

PROPERTIES

ASSEMBLY

MATERIAL (change it to 0-bar/ff-030,22,0x40.0)

 I still have the problem with the back but now the top and bottom are going through the sides.

I then make the bottom rail flush with the bottom of the cabinet.

Highlight the bottom rail

PROPERTIES

ASSEMBLY     3 DOTS

EDIT

ASSEMBLY METHOD

CENTRAL PANEL

ALIGNMENT (back)

The only way I found to make the back work is.

Highlight the back

This makes the back panel fit the unit but now its showing grooves down either side.

The back panel is over-passing bottom of unit and I'm not sure how to make it flush.

To sum up my problems, the top and bottom of the unit are going through the sides, the sides are sowing grooves in them and the back is over-passing the bottom of the unit.

 As you can see I'm struggling, I hope you can assist 

Thanks 

Nige
