I don’t know if anyone has covered this or if Boole has it on their radar.
We do, as everybody else does, face frames with nil panels and double backs, but to me, a simple and better way of building the majority of face frames would be with assembled doors.
This could be done with the stiles and rails being the frame and the centre panel being the door. We have done this before with some manual tooling options, but if there was an ability to link tooling to the subparts of an assembly this would allow you to link the centre panel (door) to the left upright (Faceframe section) with hinge toolings. Or of course any other sub-assembly.
You could then add shelves and any other panel easily behind the ‘assembled’ door and frame without having to have ‘nil’ panels and all the additional checking for toolings that attach to nothing.
Is this something people have attempted before or added to a roadmap?
Just my musings.
