This is a default base cabinet -- I removed the door and drawer for clarity.

 

Suggest you open a stock Chief Template and check the cabinets there.

Eric-Did you use the default metric plan or the imperial? I get what you have from the imperial but from the metric I get this-

Now that template is from Beta so maybe?

Add a molding

For the boxes if it is really important you can mess with it several ways per attached-none are finished and I used some parts I already had so they are not exact-Cleanest result is a lot of extra work-on the far right. Other two look fine inside the cabinet but not from the side.

It's probably worth sending in as there does seem to be a difference between the metric and imperial templates

 

eg set your Cabinets to Framed and the separation to 0mm and you get the Frameless look in Vector views ...though it's still not 100% the same as Frameless eg the top separation.

 

not sure if the 3mm blank at the top was you or how it came in the metric template but that 3mm/1/8 blank is not normally there in the Imperial version.( not sure it effects anything either though)

Thanks for all your helpful input it seems to me that did not go all the way with the coding of the software on the metric side of things
