Hi Alex,

Thank you. That’s a very different method of creating cabinets. May take me a while to get my head round this…

Kind regards

It took me a little time to understand how you had created your furniture,

Do not block this on the default cabinet elements

To do a Door overpassing use a fixed shelf instead of the Top

to create double thickness shelves use triple surface split like with your 0.6mm panel

and for the radius it’s best is to look at attached example

And apply the doors in local mode, 

I used a shelf with tenon and angle toolings

hope that’s helpful

Cheers, Alexandre

I have a model where I need the doors to be inset to a faceframe on the sides but then also overlay the cabinet top and bottom. I have achieved this to a point with a groove on the doors although as can be seen its not quite right.

Also any idea why the hinge tooling is doing what its doing?

Secondly I would like the side panel to be housed into the thick face frame. I have attached a drawing of what I am looking to achieve. 

And finally is it possible to add the radius to the face frames i have on the side panels as per drawing?

Kind regards
