Thanks Ness, does just what I want.

I do intend going for full membership eventually as I will need it printing; this is going to be a bit too complicated to get all the measurements manually!

Regards

Pete

Hi Pete,

To set shelves and uprights back from the front just select the parts and open the “link” to frontage parameters and add a “recess” value:

To make this automatic when you add shelves and uprights you can set up a Divisions sub-method that sets back a given value each type of shelf or upright:

This means that each time you insert a shelf or upright sub-type (2,3 or 4) they are automatically set back a certain distance from the front.

In the attached model I’ve set up the sub-method that you can restore to your libraries and use.

If you sign up for full membership I can make you a template and video to show how to do this in detail.

Hope this is helpful.

All the best,

Ness

Hi Ness,

What I have in mind I have found difficult to draw in any way that makes sense. I normally use a 2D CAD package, but the drawings end up horrendously complicated and impossible to visualise. I tried sketching by hand but there were so many lines and hidden lines again the drawing didn’t make much sense either.

It was a search for a package to draw this unit that led me to Polyboard. I have spent hours searching but can’t find a photo of anything even close to what I want.

This is about the closest:- http://www.nevillejohnson.co.u…..-room#nogo

Imagine this without the doors and drawers but with lots of different depth shelves. Another very simplified way is from one of your templates https://wooddesigner.org/wp-con…..-large.jpg

Looking at the middle section above the cupboard, the shelves and the short upright would only be half the depth, flush to the back; the uprights either side would still be full depth.

Hope this makes sense!

Hi Pete,

So that we can understand clearly and advise you, can you post a drawing, sketch or photo that shows the general aspect of your project?

All the best,

Ness

I am designing a piece of built in living room furniture which will house amongst other things TV, Hi-Fi, Vinyl records, CDs and books. The area housing the Hi-Fi and vinyl records needs to be around 400mm deep, the books 250mm deep and CDs around 160mm deep.

How can I adjust the depth of some of the shelves and uprights?

(PS the topic title should be depth, not width, could a mod change it please)
