Cabinet front leg Chase

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a solution to creating a square leg chase in a cabinet ! I would like to apply a leg to the front of a cabinet , example a 3' x 3' leg from the catalog .

 

When i select apply post to the face of the cabinet it apply it to the face therfore making the cabinet deeper like an off set post ! I would like it integrated into the cabinet face . Not seeing where I can modify a base cabinet to complete this and figure I could get an answer from an advanced user

Hope this helps !!! We do this at our cabinet shop often ( The CADD department does it in cabinet vision , great for Cabinet CNC machine not so much for design)

 

I have a client who would like the leg in the face of the cabinet , best way is a square cut out at the corner of the cabinet

No picture of the finished product?

 

You can place a leg from the library anywhere you want. 

 

Is your cabinet correct? Where does the leg need to go?

The leg is recessed into the cabinet, when I place it via the cabinet modifications it places on the face  24" + leg equal 27 1/2  depth .. I need the leg to be flush with the front so I would describe it as a right angle chase cut into the cabinet face , the leg needs to be at the corner of the cabinet

Use framed construction- if frameless just set to 3/4" separation.

Set left and right separations to "0", split face, convert left to opening, split again and make opening on right. Etc. Depending on needs may have to use 0 toe kick and then fake that.

Here's a quick start.

and if you need to close the cuts make a door symbol from a slab and adjust origin and lock depth, add to side as "side panel inset" See post on cabinet hacks in tips section using that principal

Or you could use a pair of skinny cabinets

on each side to create your needed chase.

Eric's method and Rich's are both simpler and easier. I use the more complicated one so that I can get a cabinet of the correct size and the legs into a cabinet schedule.

(the legs are door symbols placed into a cabinet that is openings on 3 sides.)

      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?

      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:
