Hi Chris,

You can either cut the shelves in 2 using surface split or set them up as 2 separate parts by dividing the inner volume into 2 rectangular volumes using vertical free divisions nil panels and then adding the shelves.

All the best,

PS: Uprights will have to be added, regardless of how the boards are cut, so don’t let that be an issue.

Hi Ness,

My main problem with doing that, is that PolyBoard then wants to cut the boards in L-Shapes, instead of two rectangles.  

I’m just thinking in terms of getting the boards cut at the factory – there’s going to be A LOT of wastage on the boards if they are cut this way, not true?

Would it work if I make my angle cabinet and only keep the roof, floor, sides, and doors.  Then I draw another L-Shape cabinet with the -precise- internal dimensions of the angle cabinet without a roof, floor, and sides.  Whilst I can’t draw it like that, if it is cut like this, the idea is that the L-Shape can (or should) be assembled inside of the angled cabinet?

Hi Chris,

The simplist way to do this is just to use an inner tooling to reshape the shelves.

Once one shelf cut to right shape just copy/paste the structure to the others.

I’ve modified the model in the attached project.

All the best,

Thanks Ness.

Just one other question (which I think is going to be much more complicated)…

I also have a “Angle Cabinet’ in there as you’ve more than likely saw.  The cabinet is fine (yes, it needs some fine tuning still), but I don’t want angled shelves in the cabinet – if that makes sense.

I’m after a ‘Angle Cabinet,’ with with a L-Shape inside of it in terms of how I want the shelving to sit.  The end result is basically for a ‘Angled Cabinet’ and using it as a ‘Walk In’.

Granted, I haven’t spend too much time on it yet, but from what I’ve seen (or tried) so far, I haven’t found an easy way to do this.

Hi everyone, 

Here is a question we received from Chris:



I'm busy looking at your software and seriously considering buying it.  It's a bit of a learning curve, but I seem to be getting there...

I have one question (thus far) about my project, which is a work in progress.

On the Fridge / Freezer model, I have drill holes on the left and right panels at the front of the panels.  I can't seem to figure out where they are coming from?

I would appreciate it if you could assist
Your problem is that the rule that defines the placement of the holes fixing the upper strip to the sides is referencing the over passing or priority panel.
As this is the side the holes are calculated from the top and bottom of the side and not just the upper and lower edges of the upper strip.
To limit the holes to the upper strip you can either change the start and end references of the Quick Design  0-rule/screw-010 to under passing or create a new rule.
I attach your project with a new rule "0-rule.screw-010/n " where /n indicates that it's referencing the under passing (non priority) panel.

Hope this is helpful. All the best, Ness
