I was wondering if I can somehow setup spaces between door of cabinets to make a significant line between them.
As you can see on the pictures, one (with that chairs) is what Chief does and spaces just disappear in render because they're too small, second one is image created via SketchUp, but I prefer Chief for modeling.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
Some time back Graham, myself and a few folks played around with how to show a beaded inset cabinet in Chief.
What were the best solutions at the time are a PIA to work with. I was in need of doing a job with either beaded inset frames or elite (which will be a bit harder and is far rarer so not here)
I wanted some way to have a beaded inset frame that was easy to change door style on. Figured this out while driving back from client meeting.
Plan attached has a bunch of base cabinets configured, one wall cabinet and one tall. I've also attached a library of the "doors" used as "side panel inset" to achieve the beading.
These are 1/4" beads with a total width of 5/16" Note that separation widths and heights need to be changed to get correct opening for doors or drawers.
From there you are on your own so open the DBX to see what's going on. Hope you like it, I'm pleased as punch
Ran a quick rt while checking things-looks like I'll need some hardware with altered origins so they don't float.
Note that these will use the default door, the top (A) drawers use default, the larger B drawers are set individually so either clear or specify those. Leave the beading untouched.
Discovered that the wall cabinet in the current plan is not set as a door but as a side panel inset. Either correct that your self of use the newly attached BeadInsetPlan_X12.
Changing to wider combined cabinets involves selecting "layout" vertical or horizontal and splitting. Avoid messing with the beads. Bit tricky, always use a test cabinet.
Hey everyone, I've been searching for an answer on this issue but can't figure it out. The shelves are not going into the wall niche, is there any specific reason as to why? I've adjusted the sizes both width and depth thinking maybe they were too large to go into the niche (even though the shelves are 1/2" smaller in each dimension compared to the niche.) Thanks for any advice.
