I dropped two appliances into a cabinet, and they look fine in plan, but are somehow placed in front of the cabinet in perspective views

The symbol origins are not set to allow them to go into a cabinet.

You need to make a copy of it-either place in the plan OR copy and paste to user library.

Open symbol, change the Y origin.

If in plan add to library (if copied to the user library you can change it once it is there)

Are you certain you wish to place them inside of a cabinet. Though they can be built-in they are different than say a built-in oven or microwave which are specifically designed to be installed within a cabinet. So called built-in fridges and freezers are really designed where the cabinetry is built around the appliance, you place the appliance like a free standing one and then place the cabinets beside and above as required. For built-in fridges and freezers you must also consider that units can vary in respect to whether or not the doors are flush with the existing cabinetry doors, depending on this the required opening width may vary slightly depending upon the doors hinge system.

Thanks Mark.

 

Graham...I agree..  The purpose of putting them in an 'enclosure' is the ease of moving them around to determine best location.  Once placement is determined, proper dimensioning with cabinetry will have happen.
