Hello Ivan,

Here are your manufacturing files.

I setup the top corner cabinet so that the sides aligned with the doors of the adjacent cabinets.

I left the bottom one as each cabinet has it’s own sides that separate it from the next.

Tell if everything is  OK with you.

I would love to hear how your project goes, so keep us updated on the construction .

All the best,

Corner cabinets can stay with your rearranging, but why is better to have top corner cabinet bigger then bottom one?

I dont have any edging in doors because I want to buy prepared doors.

In cabinets frontage I have 1mm white edging ( you can see it in 1th version with red color)   .

Hello Ivan,

Good job.

This works better with the slack. However the corner cabinets are not really functional with the doors and sides cut at angles.

I suggest you set them up with 90° cut panels and adjust the cabinet sides and sizes to make them easier to build.

The hinges will have also have to be different for the corner cabs.

I’ve made changes to the project so that you can see how to do this.

Note that to set up the corner cabs to meet the other I have had to rearrange a bit the different sizes.

Tell me know if this looks OK to you.

This model works OK but I also noticed that you are missing edging on the door panels and maybe elsewhere.

Can you check these details before I process?

Hello Ness and Mark,


Thank you for checking my kitchen cabinets,and for comments about it.

I corrected deficiencies which you listed me. I changed slacks for doors, now its 1.5mm arrond and 3mm between 2 doors.

i had alredy had slacks for drawers slider 12.7 mm in Lateral slacks, and 1.5mm arroud drawers, I hope it is enough .


New project file is attached. Can you check it and process it if it is OK.

Have you had problem with saving projects file? I saved my yesterday evening, and I couldnt open it today morning.I got only Failed to open document error messages.

Thank you for your helps.

Hello Ivan,

Thanks for posting this project and well done for a first design this is really great work.

And a special thanks to Mark for helping out with his comment.

If you want I can send you the manufacturing files, however, looking quickly at your design several things will give you problems if you try to build this design. 

– Firstly and as Mark said you’ll need to add slack to all the opening facade components . Especially add extra slack to the doors on the corner element

– Have a look also at the slack in the drawer and set the necessary slack for the sliders 

– The worktop will need adjusting to be parallel to the cabinets

The best way to adjust slack is to setup a manufacturing method and apply it to each cabinet.

To see how to use Manufacturing Methods, have a look at the training videos in the members area.…..-extended/design-manufacturing-methods/overview/

I haven’t had time to review your project in depth, but I would strongly suggest that you at least tweak these details before I process you project.

Otherwise a great job.



If you would like us to do the set up for you you’ll need to buy a CabinetFile Pro.

Hi Ivan

Quick look… There are no slacks on the doors width and height.

whoever is doing the plans should put some slack in the doors…
