Cabinet Schedules with Counter Tops, Shelves

Recommended Posts

Chief doesn't provide for Counter Tops, Shelves or Partitions to be included in a Cabinet Schedule.   Here's a cool trick that solves that problem:

 

1.  Create a Base Cabinet

2.  Set the Height of the Cabinet - Including the Top to be the same as the Counter Top Thickness

3.  Set "Finished Floor to Top" to be what you want - normally 36"

4.  In the Components dbx change the Description to "Counter Top" or "Shelf" or "Partition" - or anything else that you want.

 

Since Chief thinks this is a "Base Cabinet" it will be included in the Cabinet Schedule.

 

The other way to do this is to simply:

 

1.  Marquee Select the Object (Custom Countertop, Shelf of Partition),

2.  Block, set as "Treat as one Object", "Include in Schedule - Cabinet"

3.  Set "Finished Floor to Top" to be what you want - normally 36"

4.  In the Components dbx change the Description to "Counter Top"

 

This will be considered as "Other" for the purpose of being included in a Cabinet Schedule.

If you edit the size of the object the Description in the components list reverts to base cabinet-have to use a user defined sub-category for it not to change on edit. You taught me this work around Joe.
