Hi Conor,


You have two ways to change Materials, first is effective with Sub-Methods Materials,

But Sub-Methods included Structure (Tab),


The best way for don’t modify the structure is to use the “Modify the cabinet Style” function, and it why In your Sub-methods et never use the same material for carcasses and frontages, for example, Generic 0180 for carcasses, for lower price panels, and 0181 for doors and drawers frontage.

Modify the cabinet Style function highlight all the panels of a cabinet or project to update it quickly


Hope that’s helpful, Alex

Hi all, I have a set of wardrobes drawn.

I wanted to change the material for the drawer fronts to separate them from the carcass when it is nested.

I went into method, then material style, found counter frontages and changed the material.

When I did this I lost all the other changes I had made to the cabinets, surface splits, internal tooling etc.

What am I doing wrong and how do I prevent this from happening again?


Thanks, conor
