Recess Corner Sink Base X10 (Updated)


Recommended Posts

Just noticed that the cabinet is a little off to the left in the block, Unblock and ship reblock. Sorry about that.


Updated with new improved version for anyone who cares. Easier to deal with than the original.

Includes door symbols, undersink mat symbol and texture (Hafele), cabinet, an outline for correct plan view (almost), and countertop.


Cabinet is on Layer Cabinets, Base 2

Outline of cabinet is on Cabinets, CAD


Use the small "side panel inset" doors to set your reveal

These currently are designated as the standard slab door


The cabinet can be resized- range for theses is 39 to 45

Counter, undersink mat and cad outline will all need work if you change the size. Label will work though.

The undersink mat does not resize correctly and currently doesn't go edge to edge

(I'm not worrying about that now)


Increasing the cabinet to 45 will leave a gap on the inside at the center.

To fix you have to change the door symbols by pasting into a blank plan, adjusting and converting.


For things to look correctly

either block the corner cabinet or the

adjacent cabinets must be blocked

If not you get gaps-have no idea why5abe3dacf1712_WeirdGaponright.thumb.png.a05c8899ef03ab03d3bcc4f821d9c882.png


Doors appear backwards until you place them in cabinet

Chief is dyslexic.



I run into one or two corner sinks a year and have always used recessed corner sink bases. (more functional, No client of mine has ever bumped there hips on the corners I don't care how clumsy) Anyway I've tried well over a dozen ways to create these-import dwg from 2020, p-solids, multiple variations of multiple cabinets....some completely failed, some worked but always had limitations.

I've been down this rabbit hole too many times and just spent a silly amount of time there again but this time...thought of this and it got me up at 3am the other morning. After a bit of fussing, too much. I almost wasn't going to give this one away. Thought maybe I'd set up a paypal or a go fund me so I can get the Benq BL2420PT  I've had my eye on (the CFO has been intractable on this but I'll eventually wear her down-I hope)

Anyway here it is (that's right if I'm not getting paid at least I can amuse myself rambling)


This is a single cabinet, it will appear correctly in the schedule, the colors will change with the material, the toe kick works correctly, nothing odd will appear in your sink -cabinet and cabinet door defaults. I added in an inset version which has some slight differences. There are some notes on the plan for use.

      I was wondering if I can somehow setup spaces between door of cabinets to make a significant line between them.
      As you can see on the pictures, one (with that chairs) is what Chief does and spaces just disappear in render because they're too small, second one is image created via SketchUp, but I prefer Chief for modeling. 
      Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

      Some time back Graham, myself and a few folks played around with how to show a beaded inset cabinet in Chief.
      What were the best solutions at the time are a PIA to work with. I was in need of doing a job with either beaded inset frames or elite (which will be a bit harder and is far rarer so not here)
      I wanted some way to have a beaded inset frame that was easy to change door style on. Figured this out while driving back from client meeting.
      Plan attached has a bunch of base cabinets configured, one wall cabinet and one tall. I've also attached a library of the "doors" used as "side panel inset" to achieve the beading.
      These are 1/4" beads with a total width of 5/16"  Note that separation widths and heights need to be changed to get correct opening for doors or drawers.
      From there you are on your own so open the DBX to see what's going on. Hope you like it, I'm pleased as punch
      Ran a quick rt while checking things-looks like I'll need some hardware with altered origins so they don't float.
      Note that these will use the default door, the top (A) drawers use default, the larger B drawers are set individually so either clear or specify those. Leave the beading untouched.
      Discovered that the wall cabinet in the current plan is not set as a door but as a side panel inset. Either correct that your self of use the newly attached BeadInsetPlan_X12.
      Changing to wider combined cabinets involves selecting "layout" vertical or horizontal and splitting. Avoid messing with the beads. Bit tricky, always use a test cabinet.

      Sorry folks, I am new to this forum and I deleted my post by accident while trying to respond.
      I am trying to make a 24" wide pantry cabinet with full width roll out trays, but when I have double doors it makes it look like 2 rollout trays, one for each door side. Is there a workaround? When it's a single 24" door the rollout tray comes out perfectly, but I need a double door.
      This time I added the plan.

      I'm sure this has been discussed, but I can't find anything specific that answers this question.
      I'm trying to create a simple vanity with two drawers and an open shelf underneath (see inspiration image of "vanity").  I simply can't figure out a way/remember how to add a shelf other than by using the shelf command. While this works visually, it treats it as a separate part of the vanity, thereby creating two separate pieces.  In the Working Plan and Kitchen and Bath View plans, the shelf shows up on top of the sink while the 3d view shows the shelf in the correct place!  I guess maybe it's, in part, a layers thing?
      I know there has to be a better way of doing this.  What am I missing/forgetting?

      Good afternoon,
      I am trying to design a kitchen but am having issues with both lower and upper cabinets that are convex.  I understand using the different door styles for the front, but how do I make the back of the cabinets fit?
