cabinet fronts auto resizing

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

 

I would really like the base cabinet fronts to have the same appearance despite the differences in size. The door panels are auto resizing, I don't want this. The how is this done?

You need a second door symbol, one with fewer slats, same as IRL

Attached is a plan with doors, wainscott panels to make doors, the parts I used to make the wainscot, and the cabinet used to make the door. These are typically done in separate plans I just included it all in one for simplicity. Did this quickly so molding, slat bevel, and in some cases stretch areas may need adjustment. From there it's up to you if you want adjustments.

Nice Fix Mark ....

 

but that is almost a bug in those Doors isn't it ? who ITRW would want different sized slates on every door ?

 

wouldn't it normally be a panel ( ply/mdf) and the two outer slats would be different sizes as the panel would be centred in the Door Frame.

There is simply no way to set stretch planes or zones to accommodate that. Instead of simply resizing it would have to alter the number of slats.  You would need a lot of stretch planes to make it work. I guess you could do it with a 3 panel but then the panels will become the wrong size.

It would have to work something like framing. I suppose that is possible but to set that up for a very few cabinet door styles (that are not all that common I've sold one in 20 years) doesn't qualify as a bug to me. I can't imagine what that would end up doing to all the other door styles.

Hi , I meant a bug in this particular door style , not in Doors in general ......I cannot see a Door Manufacturer making different sized slats for different sized doors , just not practical , nor very pretty as Warren pointed out....

If the panel was simply a flat panel with a "Slat" material it should not expand/contract with the door size.  The problem with those doors is that the slat panels are actually modeled as 3D objects.

But then you would have issues with the material origin.

That one is something that should be able to be handled fairly simply by programming.

      Gentlemen,
       
      I have placed a dishwasher in a cabinet, and it fits fine, but when I do an interior iso, tt move to the back of the cabinet.  I pull back into place, but it moves on its own back to the translated position.  I have included two screen snips showing the problem.
       
      Does anyone have an idea of what I am doing wrong.

      I'm currently using Chief Architect Premier X11 and have been tasked with drawing this kitchen for a customer, as pictured. I know how to do bow fronts, radius ends, etc, but can't find any way (or tutorial) on how to do what I'm looking for. The customer wants a sink base with an almost tilde shape (~) and a bowed corner cabinet, both with curved backs. Is this possible?

      Edit: Also, for the corner cabinet to the left of the sink base, they want the lower portion straight up, to have the top half go into a radius to make the sink base work properly for this layout. 

      Thanks in advance.

      I am having an issue with a corner double oven in a cabinet.  I am using x11 version and it looks correct in the 3D view but in the 2D view the oven locates on the right side of the cabinet.  I have tried rotating the oven in the symbol specification which faces it to the front of the cabinet but is does not center on the cabinet.     Any solutions for this?

      Does anyone know how to solve this issue with the hinges.
      Thanks

      Can the cabinet have holes for the shelves, without having to adding polyline solids?
      Can we add stretchers for the front/back of the top of the cabinet without having to adding polyline solids?
      Something like this:
