dishwasher moving on own when in a cabinet`

Recommended Posts

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 can't duplicate your problem in X12. Are you using a downloaded dishwasher?

That is most likely a symbol origin issue which would depend on which dishwasher you are using? Some have the origins off, especially brought over from older versions OR imported. Which dishwasher? post the plan? open the symbol and check the origin.

Click on the object, open the "Library Symbol for Editing" chair icon at the bottom, then look for the "Origin Offset".  I set all of these to 0" and problem solved!!! Will not offset between plan and 3D Model.

Interesting. Thanks for this. Surprising that these are not already defaulted to zero.

It is because the Dishwasher was "designed" to be insert into a cabinet via the cabinet DBX , not dropped on to the Kitchen floor then dragged into the hole with the Ctrl Key ...in which case you must "zero out" the symbol.

      Hi,
       
      I'm wondering if anyone here has experience creating custom doors for cabinetry. Most of our work requires a custom door/drawer style or some special wainscot panels. What is the best way to create a custom door/drawer and use it with Chief Architect cabinets?
       
      Thanks in advance for your help!

      how do you shape the back of a cabinet so half of the cabinet is 12" deep and the other half is 24" deep. but the front is unchanged.  that is left side is 12" deep, right side is 24" deep.

      What is the best method for displaying preliminary design concepts to clients of the same room? An example being kitchens; I want to show multiple cabinet layouts but would rather not have a multitude of plan sets for their project from doing a "Save As" method.

      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?
