hi, 

I think the 0.001mm panel created this panel and OptiCut doesn’t understand it

you just need to delete it

Like this?

Hi Alex,

Although yesterday I had success in creating the face panel across the shelf division I am now struggling to recreate this in new models. I am creating a shelf nil panel and then added a shelf on top and below. in both my model last night and yours i was then able to select the zone inbetween the 2 shelves to add the double back. However now the only available zone to select is of the full height of the division and not the 0.0mm between the 2 shelves???

Please can you detail exactly how i go about applying the faceframe to the shelf division?

Kind regards

Tom

Hi Alex,

I have created the faceframe through the cut panel. I found this hard to select initially and ended up recessing the upper fixed shelf back 22mm to enable me to select the nil panel for a double back. Whilst this is ok is there a better way?

I also ran my own model through opticut and got good results.

This is now looking very promising. Thank you for your help on this.

Regards

Tom

Thanks Alex, 

The model looks I think, however when exporting to opticut it wont optimise giving me the message as shown in attachment. I’m not really sure what this means?

How did you create the face frame and achieve the panel cut?

Regards

Hi Alex,

The attached file is an unexpected file format. Any thoughts?

Hi Alex,

Many thanks for that, it’s nearly there…

The remaining issue is the cutting into the lower fixed shelf. Because this shelf has a nil panel below it to allow a double back for the face frame, the vertical divisions overpass the nil panel and not the fixed shelf above. 

I have attached a new model as example.

Regards

Hi Tom,

It is impossible to make a perfect division as a percentage with panels of dimensions of different lengths

The only solution would be to use nil panels but with a thickness of 0.001 mm thick

That you can easily select on the property menu

Hope that’s helpful,

Cheers, Alex

And the model attached here is how I would want it to end up.

I can change the width of the previous model parametrically as the vertical panels are cut into the tops/ bottoms/ shelves etc. What I can’t do is change the height. With the model attached I changed the height and then surface cut the side and back panels to suit..

Hi Alex,

Many thanks for video. I had started to change priorities and cut through the panels to achieve what I wanted. However what I can’t do and what your video doesn’t show is how to cut the left and right hand panels so that the fixed shelf doesn’t actually cut through. This is not the way the cabinets would be made. Ideally I would need a nil panel that is in between each shelf (top/bottom) to cut through the side panel. This would then leave 2 side panels that overpass the fixed shelf.

Another complication is when using a double back to provide a faceframe between the upper and lower doors. I found that when overpassing a vertical panel into the fixed shelves it only worked on the top shelf. This being because the lower shelf had a nilpanel below to allow the formation of the face frame. 

I found a way around this by thickness splitting the shelf and then applying the nil panel and faceframe. However I still can’t find a way to cut into the side panels?

I have attached another model

Regards

Tom

Hi,

You must now change priority with another part split automatically!

You can look at this quick video to show you how do to this 😉

Hope that’s helpful,

All the best , Alex

Hello,

I have created a single model with face frames that will be produced as multiple models. What I would like to achieve is for this model to be completely parametric. Using surface splits I have turned one large model into 2,3 and 4 models. However when changing the overall size the divided sections don’t resize proportionally. I have the references set up to do so, for example from the left at 25%. I can’t seem to input an accurate percentage value that maintains accurate parametric control for all the various divided section.

I have attached the model.

Kind regards

Tom
