Hi Dean,

To insert sloping shelves use the “Free divisions” command.

You can also have a look at this video:

Hi,

Is it possible to place the shelves at an angle? It would be for shoes

Hi steven,

What do you mean by “switch up” the plinths?

Can you send a sketch?

HI Mike,

Thanks for posting your project.

To make the plinths meet up you have to extend them beyond the adjacent panels.

To do this, select the plinth and it’s link to the adjacent panel, give an overlap equal to the plinth recess.

this will push the plinth up to edge of the cabinet :

to add a dowel assembly, select the panel and it’s link to the adjacent panel.

In the links list open the fitting link dialogue box and press “+”.

Select a fitting (dowel) in the hardware list and a rule.

You can also set up a manufacturing sub method that will automatically put the dowels on all panels.

This page gives and overview of Manufacturing methods:

https://wooddesigner.org/member…../overview/

You can use your members free CabinetFile lite to get the plans, once you have finished tweaking your design, just post the finished project and I’l send you back the plans and cutting lists.

There are lots of thing you can do to change the design of the center TV unit. What you choose depends on the way you want it look.

To advise on esthetics of a design I would need to know you taste and in what environment the piece is situated.

Can you post some photos of designs you like and the room where you will place the unit?

All the best,

Ness

PS: If you would like us to revise you project in depth and set up the details for optimised manufacturing please consider using our CabinetFile Pro service.

I am working on my first plan 2 end book shelves with a 55″ LCD tv in the middle.

I was able to get it to look like I want in just a couple minutes.

Question 1 – I could not get the plinth to meet up between the 3 cabinets in my project.

Question 2 – I would like to have evenly spaced dowel holes on my 2 end cabinets.

Question 3 – How do I print the cut list?

 

So far this is a great product and I find it very simple to use and love having all the videos to watch.

 

I’ve included my project in hopes someone could take a look at it and give me some pointers. One thing my wife noticed in the 3D mode was that the center cabinet looks to boxy, any suggestions on improving that would be appreciated.

Thanks
