Re: Can't Add Drawers

Ok, I've got it now ... when you said add stetchers for "back" shelves I assumed the fronts where shelves instead of stretchers. :) I was aware of the advanced tab for stretchers but assumed it was only to define the names of 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. Thanks for taking the time to help me along and...

Re: Can't Add Drawers

Thanks again Clint! This is exactly what I pictured in my mind from your explanation; however, I'm not able to achieve ... perhaps you can advise where I'm going astray. I open Shelf/Partition Editor, Add Shelf, and adjust Opening Height. I go back to Main, right click, select Phantom Parts, set &qu...

Re: Can't Add Drawers

I tried moving the Phantom part up 19mm, removing the -19mm top inset on the partition, and was able to align my shelves with the partition for the desired height; however, when I try to add a drawer to the top, it will not allow me to use the Phantom part area.

Re: Can't Add Drawers

Thanks for the reply Clint, I was aware of Phantom parts but never had any use case for them. I did as you suggested which did indeed allow the top to become one wide section; however, I'm unable to place a shelf/stretcher at the same height as the Phantom part which is highlighted Red in the editor...

Re: Can't Add Drawers

I was able to add a shelf with front inset but cannot then add a shelf with rear inset at the same height. I added a full shelf, assuming somebody will explain the right way and I can fix later, which allows me to add drawers except for to the top which splits into 2 drawers rather than 1 wide drawe...

Re: Can't Add Drawers

I was able to add a partition which had a top inset by modifying construction settings before adding the partition; however, when trying to add drawers, I can only highlight the left or right side of the cabinet from top to bottom. Obviously the stretchers aren't allowing it to recognize the split a...

Can't Add Drawers

I've designed the following frameless half overlay base cabinet which will be used in my woodshop and sit on 4 casters so it can be rolled around. That said, when I go to add drawers, eCabinets does not recognize the smaller drawer spaces but rather the larger cabinet as one drawer space. FWIW - I u...

Re: Full Shelf/Partitions or Stretchers??

Hi Tim, I'm not sure I follow about the insets and why I'd inset the shelf. Are you saying it's a lot of work using eCabinets in designing with Stretchers? If so, I've already done that and is quite easy. Thanks for recommending stiffening of the deck, I was thinking the same just wasn't sure as I'v...

Full Shelf/Partitions or Stretchers??

I'm building a bathroom vanity and cabinets for my shop, am a bit of a newbie, and need some advice from the experts. When I drew the shop cabinets, I used full shelves/partitions in my design without any thought, and began cutting. As I went to resume cutting today, I wondered why I'd used full pan...

Shop Cabinet - Top or Side Flush?

Besides kitchen cabinets I’m going to build some cabinets for my woodshop which will be on casters so they can serve as infeed/outfeed support. All the kitchen cabinets I’ve seen so far have the top between the sides which I assume is for side appearance. Questions ... Is there any difference in rig...

Re: Drawer Reveal Issue

Thanks Ralph, I did not know that, and I’m either going to make my own doors or outsource them, the Conestoga were just for getting something put together quickly.

Re: Drawer Reveal Issue

I see some min incr on the original tooltip and don’t see it on the latest cabinets ... I guessing it’s a setting somewhere that was causing the drawer to grow. I’ll have to dig through all the construction settings and get a better understanding of them so I have the seed exactly as I want it.

Re: Drawer Reveal Issue

Tim, I'm not certain but I'm guessing that would cause me to loose my 1.5mm reveal accuracy as well as have an impact on the 15.5mm Baltic Birch drawer boxes but that's just a guess. Excellent news, I was able to get the drawers to be sized exactly as I've created them, and have the 3mm top reveal, ...

Re: Drawer Reveal Issue

Well it looks like it's going to take me some time to figure out how to make my own cabinet rather than using an existing cabinet as a seed … creating and aligning display panels didn't seem to work, I assume there's some other way?
