Hi ,

For doing this you must use CAD soft. like Draftsight after export in DXF

Yep, got it now! Thanks Alexandre! 

Also, are you able to advise on how I would be able to display the dimensions of the feature in door and also the measurements showing the position within the door, like permanent dimensions? Is this possible?

Thankyou!

Hi Alexandre/Ness,

Many thanks for your response.

Yes, this is what I am trying to achieve and I managed to do this with Alexandre’s first description, however, when I try the surface split option I am unable to cut out the the split I need to delete. I don’t seem to have the ‘nil’ option to clear this. See my practice cabinet attached – am I missing something?

Many thanks!

Yelda

Hi ,

Big thanks to Ness, I see i still have some tricks to learn

I’ve given a solution in detail below,

Step 1 : Slack door (like first time)

Step 2 : Surface split

Hi Yelda and Alex,

I’m back in my hotel room after spending the day setting up a cnc and giving training, so I have a bit of time to look at the forum.

I’m not sure I understand correctly what Yelda is trying to do.

Is it something like this?

If so you can make the door over lap the cabinet side and then add an inner tooling that you set the material to non nill.

Then use surface split to cut the door overlap and make the right part nil.

I post the cabinet so you play with this.

If this is what you are trying to do I can explain a bit more in detail.

If not can you post a picture or drawing ?

All the best,

Ness

Hi Alexandre,

Thanks for your help (learnt something new!), however, I need this door strip/feature to be a separate piece altogether as this will be a different colour/material to the rest of door. From what I understood in demonstration is the door is still one whole piece which is not what I am trying to achieve. The example I attached is exactly what I want (a separate piece to the door) I just need it to be a longer width to the door. Can this be done? 

Thanks in advance!

Hi Alexandre,

I have actually just applied your example to a ‘new’ door and now I understand how this works. I added 3 inner tools to get shape of the edge of door as required, then selected relevant inner tooling after closed window and changed ‘yes’ to ‘no’ in section ‘nil’ which filled in the empty space I created in inner tooling. 

By doing this I now know I need to increase carcass size and then add ‘slack’ to door side based on this type of design. Have I got this right or is there another/better way of doing this without playing with the carcass size etc?

Also, am I able to get the dimensions of this separate piece within the door displayed to show exact positioning on door?

Many thanks!

Yelda

hi Yelda,

The “inner tooling” function can not be used in this way

I hope this exemple can help you step by step

1. door overpassing

link her with slide “slack” -60mm

(general dimensions must be oversized to!)

2. inner toolling it

60mm and 1.5mm more for Slack

Joint this exemple

All the best , Alexandre

Hi Yelda,

Some of our team is away for this week so there might be a bit of extra delay in replying to your your question.

Please accept our excuses for this. I will try to reply to your question late on today.

best regards,

Hi Team,

I have a feature on the attached cabinet door which I have successfully added in ‘inner tooling’. This feature actually comes out of door edge by 60mm and although I typed the extra length in inner tooling, this extra length does not appear when I close the box. Can you please advise on how to save this so this is visible / added to design? See attached feature in pink I am trying to extend (width to be hanging out from top side of door by 60mm).

Also, it seems I am unable to measure the feature dimensions and have them visible like all other dimensions (the actual dimension of feature and dimensions to show actual positioning on door). Is this available to add?

Many thanks!

Yelda
