Importing cabinet doors from sketchup


Recommended Posts

I have been making some models in skecthup to import and use with chief.

I make the models and import them into chief however the proportion is being stretched when I apply the doors to cabinetry.

top rail gets constrained, vertical gets wider and spacing to panel raise gets wider.

I cannot find specific instruction to make a door catalog for chief and would like to make my own catalog.

The doors above the refrigerator and on the tall cabinet are the model I have made, the door to the left of the refrigerator is the raised panel in chiefs standard catalog.

The doors to the left of the tall cabinet are from the chief catalog as well.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you

Do you know how to keep the center panel as an individual piece from the rest of the model so I can apply two textures? 


I don't SketchUp, but try applying different materials to the frame and panel (in SketchUp).
