Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am designing a kitchen. Is there a way to show half a cabinet leg on a spice rack pullout? 

thank you,

Model the feature as a solid, save it as a symbol, place it on the front of a slab-door cabinet.

 

But I've no info on how to do this in Interiors X12.  Me, with Premier X12, I'd just do it fast in Sketchup, and import it as a symbol.

I would probably do this differently than Gene.  No reason to use another program unless that is something that you prefer.

 

You can take any newel symbol and trick Chief into cutting it in half for you by using it on a railing.  Railings have the ability to turn off everything but the newel posts and you can specify the start post as a half post and the end post as none.  I would probably place a flat panel behind this and then convert this into a door/drawer front symbol.  You can then use this new drawer front along with one of the rev-a-shelf symbols as your drawer box.

 

In the picture below, the thing on the right is really a railing bumped up against a cabinet partition.  On the left is a base cabinet with a single drawer, a custom drawer front, and a rev-a-shelf insert.

Nice one Dermot :)

Can also take any post from library, place in plan, open symbol, add stretch zone. then open object and changed the dimension to half of what it was, place a door symbol, convert to cabinet door symbol.
