butting base cabinets of unequal depth with a clipped corner

Recommended Posts

I am trying to butt an 18" deep x 20" high base (window seat) with 6" clipped corner against a 12" deep tall bookcase cabinet, but as soon as the cabinets touch, the clipped corner becomes squared. It comes back when cabinets are moved 1" apart. I tried a 1" filler, but the clip disappears then as well. How can I make this work? I also want a clipped countertop to die into the bookcase. Can this be done?

I am trying to learn CA Interiors X9 trial version. We do very custom cabinets and have a lot of unique situations, which led me to CA Pro. I want to use the program primarily as a visualization tool for my clients.

For both sides clipped, keep the cabinet away from any others. With it not selected hold shift key and select it, then makes architectural block (icon at bottom), for clip one side only push the other side against a cabinet so clip goes away, shift select, block. For either move into place. 

To edit cabinet once block, select then tab to select the cabinet instead of block, open object.

Missed, part, yes you can make counter work may need custom countertop depending what you meant 

Hi end cabinets get Chief Architect Premier IMO.

      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?

      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. :-)
