Can the cab really be made as a unit?

 

Can you make it as a single in Chief?  See the recent thread about a 2 sink vanity.

 

We need more info to be able to help.

Yes if specified that way in Chief.......see Gene's recent post in the other thread he mentions along with examples from others....

If it's getting built as a single unit then as Gene was alluding to above, it can be done creating with a single cabinet (which is how I almost always handle it myself).

 

It can also optionally be done by group selecting the 3 cabinets, clicking Make Architectural Block, opening that block, checking Treat As One Object, selecting Cabinet from the list of Schedule options.  Then, in your Schedule, under Options To Include, make sure to check Other.  This brings up some additional challenges to contend with and that I don't have time to get into,  but hopefully that gets you started.

If the cab is to truly be a single, it's gonna get built as a single box with faceframe, not as three cabs ganged together, so if this were my project, that is how I would model it.  You can get the true look you want by fiddling with the stile and rail widths and overlays and reveals.

 

You'll give yourself a nice course in modeling cabs by Chief, when you do this, so be sure to explore around and play with it, end panels, toeboard recess options, and all.

 

If you don't know the details of how these are made, here is April to show you how, just like in a pro shop.  

 

 

And show us your result!
