Tray dividers and RO for cabinets with open door

Recommended Posts

 I put in a lot of tray dividers and thought it would be nice to use those with the new open door feature. In the past I've had to force those onto a cabinet, presents problems resizing or moving. Thought of this when I woke up.

Plan attached with sample cabinet to and a couple of door symbols. Open the cabinet dbx to see how it all works. Open door symbols to see how to set up your own for other accessories. I plan on using this for a trash, Hafle Lemans and a few other things. Also included a single a Rev-A-Shelf Chrome tray divider. You'll have to make your own (or alter Joe C's :) if you want wooden ones.

Does something like these pull out pantry drawers exist anywhere in our libraries?

Not AFAIK. You can download the entire Rev-A-Shelf catalog in 3d DWG from their site but still a pain to convert.

I'd make it in Chief -attached is a start and some parts- cabinet with "drawer" symbol is set with method Alaskan Son Developed. You'd still need to add rails to it. I mostly use Hafele so didn't bother to mess with it. Besides, be good practice for ya :)

Thanks Mark.

 

Now that I have mastered the fine art of ray tracing I guess it's time for me to expand my knowledge base and move into designing custom cabinetry. :D

Thanks for the credit Mark.  I appreciate it.  It always feels nice...especially knowing when one of my cockamamie schemes is being utilized by someone besides me.  I'm sure you know the feeling.  Thanks again :)

      I am trying to show a recessed wall cabinet bottom for inserting a light strip. 
      I need to be able to show the bottom of the cabinet recessed up by 1 1/2" with the sides still down. The doors should cover the recess also.

      Hi all any suggestions on how to adjust cabinet to angled wall.
      see image..
      note this cabinet will only be half functional from front on but the back will be chamfered to suit the wall.
      I have tried to look thru the options but nothing seems to address my requirements.
       
      thanks in advance

      I've used an older cabinet program (Cabinet Vision) for producing cabinet cut sheets for some time now. I would like to use one program start to finish to simplify things. Our company owns our own cabinet shop and is used to mass cabinet production using these cut sheets. Is there a way to export cabinet data only through Chief Architect that I can give my cabinet builders to assemble off of?

      I saw several pictures online, mostly on Houzz's website, about hidden pantry's and other rooms and I decided to try and create a few. This is a rough attempt at creating them. All are blended within the kitchen cabinets. Instead of explaining what I did and used, it would probably be best if you simply took it apart yourself. Then you'll understand. I hope. CA X9 was used. Also, what you see in the attached images will differ from what you will see when creating camera images. Feel free to send me suggestions, questions, etc. Thanks. Hope you like. :-)
