Kitchen cabinets displayed on floor plan

Recommended Posts

I'm new to Chief. I'm using X-8.


I am getting ready to send my floor plan to the layout page and see that the upper cabinets are hiding the cabinets & appliances below them. Also the lower cabinets counter top is shaded.




On the upper cabinets I have changed the line type from a solid line to a dashed line, so that shows up correctly, but the upper cabinets still hide the cabinets

and appliance below. Is there a way to make the upper cabinet transparent? Also is there a way to remove the shading of the counter top in the floor plan view?

If you do not want the uppers to show then just turn the appropriate layer display to off. As mentioned by Solver the fill color for the object can be changed to none or whatever fill style you like. There are also controls that allow you to move objects to the front and back of their group. The most obvious of these commands is displayed in the bottom of the screen tools when you click on an object or if you right click on an object in the pop-up menu. There are also other group move commands in the objects DBX, believe under line style. These may help, but there are some limitations on this.

Are you using X8? If so, give the upper cabinets a 50% fill. It's awesome.

      I have placed a dishwasher in a cabinet, and it fits fine, but when I do an interior iso, tt move to the back of the cabinet.  I pull back into place, but it moves on its own back to the translated position.  I have included two screen snips showing the problem.
      Does anyone have an idea of what I am doing wrong.

      I'm currently using Chief Architect Premier X11 and have been tasked with drawing this kitchen for a customer, as pictured. I know how to do bow fronts, radius ends, etc, but can't find any way (or tutorial) on how to do what I'm looking for. The customer wants a sink base with an almost tilde shape (~) and a bowed corner cabinet, both with curved backs. Is this possible?

      Edit: Also, for the corner cabinet to the left of the sink base, they want the lower portion straight up, to have the top half go into a radius to make the sink base work properly for this layout. 

      Thanks in advance.

      I am having an issue with a corner double oven in a cabinet.  I am using x11 version and it looks correct in the 3D view but in the 2D view the oven locates on the right side of the cabinet.  I have tried rotating the oven in the symbol specification which faces it to the front of the cabinet but is does not center on the cabinet.     Any solutions for this?

      Does anyone know how to solve this issue with the hinges.

      Can the cabinet have holes for the shelves, without having to adding polyline solids?
      Can we add stretchers for the front/back of the top of the cabinet without having to adding polyline solids?
      Something like this:
