I am having trouble with this block. I converted it to an architectural block then saved it to my library and then tried to insert it into a plan. the sinks show up in the plan but the cabinet is not there. All the right layers are on. I tried everything, (well obviously not EVERYTHING), I know it is something simple but can't figure out what I am missing.

Works OK for me. Added your block to library, then placed it back in plan.

It's weird, it works on the main level of the plan I have going but if I try to insert it in the basement or second floor it just appears as the sinks and faucets floating in air. The plan I am working on is too big of a file to attach.

Thanks

It's the way you put it together. I made a simpler version from Polyline Solids for the base and body, a Custom Countertop and a manually placed sink.

 

Your Countertop used as the base, is set to an absolute and not a relative height, which is causing some or all of the problems.

I'd probably start with standard base cabinets, generate custom countertop, then add polyline solids as required around the base.

OK thanks, I thought I was using all poly line solids but that makes sense, I must have made the base out of a countertop for some reason. Thanks,

OK this time I did it with a molding profile.

I made it into an architectural bloc added to library and when I insert it, again, it work on the main level of my project but in the basement and 2nd floor, only the countertop and sinks show up. I don't see a setting for the height of the molding profile from finished floor.

There isn't one.

 

Attach the molding to the countertop.

Thank you. I don't see how to do that and, as usual, a search through the help files turns up nothing.

Countertops and Soffits may have moldings attached to them.

 

Open the countertop and see the Moldings panel. Works just like assigning a molding to a Molding Polyline.

Thank you. I am just learning about moldings today... I see how it works now.

Still seems odd that I can draw something and see it right there and block it and add it to the library and not have it come out the same way on the other end, but I'm sure there is a reason for it.

Anyway, thanks for your patience.

An alternative solution- made completely from cabinets which gives control over all modlings, and faces. You still need to make a custom counter top to get the middle section and can run into some issues when resizing the corners. Also once blocked clips show up on the back of the cabinet but go away once unblocked. There are always several ways to get there in Chief-just a matter of which your are most comfortable with.
