Can the cabinet have holes for the shelves, without having to adding polyline solids?

Can we add stretchers for the front/back of the top of the cabinet without having to adding polyline solids?

Something like this:

YOu can make stretches with a custom cabinet door used as side panel inset. Shelves with holes -make it out of psolids and turn it into fixture interior. For the shelves you will likely need more than one symbol since they won't resize well-depends on what you're after. The stretcher included will resize in width just fine. You may need to alter the symbol if using wood instead of paint but whatdyawantfornuttin.:) This took 15 minutes

Plan attached- go throught he DBX of the cabinet to understand what is going on, then OPEN SYMBOL of the included stretcher to see how that is set up-I set it for a 1/16" reveal.

Then save these things and any you make to the library AND save the plans, particularly the holes, for reuse in the future. You can set you default cabinets to have stretchers like this.

Thank you Mark, 

Always good,

About the holes;

Sorry, I meant holes in the cabinets for adjustable shelves.

I would not even think about that. If needed for some strange customers then specify it.

If thinking of CNC, or some other actual production were a spec won't suffice you should be looking into CabinetVision or other software made for the purpose. 

If it just amuses you it can be done building the entire cabinet from custom door symbols. (assuming you have too much time on your hands;->

I was wrong- sort of. Had a thought and gave it a quick go. There is an easy way  if you don't care about vector or technical illustration or willing to clean up layout lines. Then again these don't show all that much in standard or PBR to be worthwhile. In any case here ya go.

 To make something with clean vector views will be much more difficult and I still don't think is worth the effort. But if you have a pay at it let us know what works eh?

another though (never could resist a rabbit hole). Decent results can be had using the method I use for changing material of cabinet interior. Need some seperate symbols for varied depths cabinets-I've posted stuff in the past in Symbols or Tips-check there for more. These could still use a little work for better vector view at the front (may not be possible)

Anyway here ya go, last ones I'm trying.

Hi Mark,

Thanks again for your help,

I am developing a Filemaker app for a local cabinet manufacturer, in their product specification they need to show the holes using the technical illustration.

 

Regards

      Gentlemen,
       
      I have placed a dishwasher in a cabinet, and it fits fine, but when I do an interior iso, tt move to the back of the cabinet.  I pull back into place, but it moves on its own back to the translated position.  I have included two screen snips showing the problem.
       
      Does anyone have an idea of what I am doing wrong.

      I'm currently using Chief Architect Premier X11 and have been tasked with drawing this kitchen for a customer, as pictured. I know how to do bow fronts, radius ends, etc, but can't find any way (or tutorial) on how to do what I'm looking for. The customer wants a sink base with an almost tilde shape (~) and a bowed corner cabinet, both with curved backs. Is this possible?

      Edit: Also, for the corner cabinet to the left of the sink base, they want the lower portion straight up, to have the top half go into a radius to make the sink base work properly for this layout. 

      Thanks in advance.

      I am having an issue with a corner double oven in a cabinet.  I am using x11 version and it looks correct in the 3D view but in the 2D view the oven locates on the right side of the cabinet.  I have tried rotating the oven in the symbol specification which faces it to the front of the cabinet but is does not center on the cabinet.     Any solutions for this?

      Hello all,
       
      It has been some time since I last asked a question as I don't get to use this software very often in my business we mostly remodel condos.
       
      I have a bunch of cabinets all designed in Chief and was wondering if there was a way to generate a cut list of parts that go into building those cabinets with Chief??
      It would be such a time saver if this was possible. They are frame-less cabinets and a few are custom sizes.
      Your help would be greatly appreciated.
