Hi Dean,

Not sure what you mean, as you can just click the red “X” to erase the hardware, is there something I’m missing?

Your last model doesn’t have the double-back to vertical division hardware link…

In the last model you might have to also need erase the back to bottom hardware and the shelf to back drilling ?

Otherwise it all looks good.

All the best,

Ness

Hi Dean,

to make your desks more manageable I would suggest you don’t use a thickness split for the double thickness sides and privacy top sides.

You should make them using the side and vertical divisions. This keeps them separate and makes setting up hardware, assembly details etc much easier.

The upper fixed shelf can then be grooved into the vertical divisions to create a cutout.

You can then apply hardware or assembly details  just between the side and top:

For the inner panels I’d suggest also that you don’t use “surface split” but a set back or recess.

It’s late here and I have to go.

I attach a mock up of the desk as an example of how I think it should be set up.

You’ll have to tweak it to the right sizes etc.

All the best,

Ness

Hi Ness,

This panel Highlighted in red is the culprit,  

i am wanting to attach it to the top on the inside face or possibly with a groove joint , i am planning for this panel to lift up with the top similar to google pic attached

Hi Dean,

Sorry but I’m not clear about what you are asking.

Hi Ness,

Im just working on these lift up computer/hot desks and the idea is the top is hinged on the back and lifts up to reveal a monitor on the underside with privacy sides , there will be 10 of these side by side and all fold flat to make one big confrence desk but have the following things i am struggling to do

* i would like the fixed shelf that is hard up under the top to overpass the first panel of the thickness split panels and create a double rebate effect between the four panels

* i would like to apply hardware to attach the exterior split panel to the top and the inner pane only to the fixed shelf

* i have the panel double back 1 split with a nil panel but only want hardware on the panel that is left

* i would also like the exterior of the thickness split panels to overpass the back panel 

Hope this all makes sense and possible

Many Thanks

Dean
