Custom Island Posts

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me how to create custom island posts?  I see a lot of posts in the cabinet catalogs but none of them will work for me.  I'd like some posts with recessed panels like this picture.

Please check your messages.

 

Have you searched the forum (I'd look in Tips & Techniques) and on the Chief website?

 

I would look for columns and not posts.

 

Once you learn about the various tools available in Chief, you will see how to apply them to create things like this. New users often skip that learning part.

Don't need custom symbols for that, just cabinets.

Perfect!  How did you put the baseboard on?  I see you selected toe kick with 0" depth and 4" height.  Also, how did you add this molding?

 

Thanks!

Open the cabinet and review the options.

When you open the cabinet, the answer will be right in front of you.

 

You want to look for Moldings.

One of the key skills that people need for using Chief is simply looking at the dialogs and becoming familiar with the options and settings.

 

You can also search Help.

No offense but that basic so - Open the cabinet DBX and hit the F1 key or click help. First check the whole page, then if you haven't seen the answer click on the hyperlink that looks the most promising (hint will be named for what you want to know)

The Boys are practicing tough love this morning apparently :) , not that I disagree that one should dig a bit and hit F1 when in doubt too...

Great!  I see the moldings now.  Did you download those?  I don't see those in my library.

 

You can also draw you own and add them to the library or import DWG etc too.

Creating and Editing Molding Profiles (chiefarchitect.com)

 

But if you haven't downloaded the Bonus libraries you are missing perhaps 350-400 downloads too...
