Preferred way to do Kohler farmhouse sink


Recommended Posts

Their models are true 3D, and I prefer the porcelain ones.


I take the model into Sketchup and model the U-shaped front panel into it, then change the drain and basket to a different material, and bring it into Chief.


It's tedious, because I then make a short cabinet with no countertop upon which to set the sink-with-apron, and do a custom countertop with the cutout, all corners rounded with 3/4 R.  


You have an easier way, I'm sure.  What is it?

I have not tried that.  Which sink are you using.


To work that way, the sink's 2D must include the c'top cutout, and I've not been successful doing that with an imported symbol from Kohler.  I want the resultto look like the way I build them.   Pics are my result, and a photo from Kohler.

Everyone here appreciates it when new members complete their signature with some basic info including their version of Chief. Makes it easy for others to locate, and results in you getting the best answers.


You can add that info, Windows or Mac computer etc to your signature by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.


Takes just a minute.

Could you explain how you "insert" the apron sink? Do you add it in the cabinet detail screen? I tried this and it does set correctly.

Appreciate your help.

Can't explain it any better than a quality video!

There’s a video that shows a few different ways you can place the apron / farm sink depending on your design

Thanks @scottharris
