How to make cabinet wood grain go horizontal on both doors and drawers?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, i want to have a horizontal textured laminate look on a full height cabinet for both doors and drawers.

CA automatically makes drawers and doors go in a different direction?

I thought maybe make two different cabinets and have two different materials, is this the only way i can do this or can i do this on one cabinet another way?

Using a door or drawer from the library will allow assigning materials to each.

I did this and no matter what i do i cant get the drawers to show horizontal grain wood, i saved material and rotated it 90 degrees and tried putting both on drawers..it wont change?

Try check Use Global Symbol mapping.  You may end up wanting to create a unique material with that setting though for just your drawer fronts.

Choose a door from the library for either the door or drawer, not both.

 

Change your drawer to Slab Drawers, for example.

Thanks a bunch eric, how would anyone know that? I changed the drawers back to slabs and kept the doors as a library slab with horizontal grain texture.

I used a vert grain texture for drawers to get a horizontal grain in end.
