Hi Karl,

The problem is that the front of your cabinet is not at right angles to the sides.

The only way to get the mitre joints in this case is to set them up manually with the bevel edges options.

You’ll also have to set the door to in built and groove to the surrounding panels to be able to adjust the slack values.

I attach a model that you can play with.

This is a fiddly set up so if you need more details I can make you a short video.

If you can set the front at right angles to the cabinet everything is much easier.

all the best,

Ness

Hi Karl,

When asking questions, can you try to post a drawing or the Polyboard file.

This make it far easier to understand your requests and answer appropriately.

Thanks for your understanding.

Hi Karl,

I am not sure if I understand fully what is your goal but to change part’s connection to mitre joint – click on that part and in the Properties > Links  expand the relevant part’s linking setting and in Priority change it to Mitre-Joint. I tested it and it works for every parts including doors. Hope this helps

Cheers!

Hi!

There is a possibility to join sides to back with mitered joints. But how can I make four sided mitered joint? 

If viewing from top town, the back and sides are perpendicular but the front has to have a slope and mitered to the sides. How can I accomplish this?
