The rules are given as examples, but you can restore, create or use your own rules.


The most important is to use

xx-xx/x00-N rule when bottom under passing (No priority)

xx-xx/x00-p rule when bottom overpassing (Priority)


All the best, Alex

Hi Alex, I'm attaching an image of what I got from your download.Rule.pngImage Enlarger

I don't think I have the rule.


Regards and thanks,

You can use 2 links with drawer bottom

First link between Drawer ( frontage ) with drawers bottom and using rules like 80-80/800 n (ref to follow bottom)

Second between drawers bottom with counter-frontage (drawer) and using rules like 80-80/800 p (ref to follow bottom again)

When you apply manually don't forget to permute the face

But don't worry when using in sub-methods, link is automatically permuted 

example in Sub-methods

please find example attached, but you certainly need to adjust height of drilling I have set to 50mm from bottom

hope that's helpful, Alexandre

Hello everybody

need urgently an hint on how to to make a through hole in the counter-frontage and a corresponding blind recess in the drawer front.

Counter-frontage should have a through hole dia. 5 mm to allow positioning a screw and the front-drawer (inside side) should have a dia. 20 mm hole  8 mm depth aligned with it (same axis) . Obviously there are couple of them for any given drawer.

This kind of tooling is needed to insert a front drawer "regulator".

Looking into left panel of "fitting link list" window I can only see a link between "top drawer" and "counter frontage" of a certain type of drawer. A question that arise is what is the concept of "TOP" drawer and the second is if it is possible to make tooling on panels that lies flat one over the other (like front-drawer together with its counter -frontage).

Thanks for any help
