Error with Shelf Holes

On the attached cabinet, each row of shelf holes is getting drilled twice, for some reason. When I have one of the sides in PE, then go to return to the Cab. Editor, I get the message "The operation... violates the ideal tenon or dadoes. You may see some unexected results". (There are no t...

Re: Metabox drawers HELP

Once I open it in the display part editor, how do I get the drawers to show?

Re: Better way to build cabinet?

I like the idea of using saved geometry, and then constraining the holes. The problem with using separate library for cabinets with 'like' parts, is that some have a mix of parts. Some of the cabinets have both a finished and an unfinished end, some have both fixed and adjustable shelves. I'm wonder...

Better way to build cabinet?

I'm redoing my closet library, and will be basing it on the cabinet attached below. The last time around I used color coded edgeband to distinguish certain parts (finished vs unfinished ends, fixed vs. adjustable shelves etc.) but am going to do without edgeband on these. The edgebanding seems to sl...

Re: Top not Cutlisting Correctly/ RTA Fitting

Thanks Chris. I'll play around with the notch and holes and see if that's tied into the error. In the meantime, I removed the banding from the front edge of the top, and set the top back, from the front of the cabinet, the thickness of the banding. This works, but isn't ideal. In the meantime, if ot...

Updating Hole Pattern

I've adjusted the hole pattern associated with the RTA fitting I'm using. What's the easiest way to apply this change to the cabinets in my library?

Top not Cutlisting Correctly/ RTA Fitting

When I add RTA fittings to the top of my cabinet 2 things are happening. The top disappears from the cutlist, and when nested, the thickness of the edgebanding is no longer subtracted from the part. I've tried deleting the part, and recreating it, but keep getting the same results. GCMF - 11 - 2 - 1...

John, I just tried that and it works great. Not clear on why I didn't try to use it before. Thanks.

Re: Unable to Create Pocket in Part Editor

Thanks Jerry, that's what I ended up doing. I need to create this hole and notch pattern on quite a few cabinet sides, so I was hoping to do it as a DXF, that I could bring into PE each time. I was able to do it with the holes, but not the notch. It does turn out to be pretty easy just to create the...

Re: Selecting Multiple Objects in PE

Thanks guys. It does look like I'll need to select them one at a time. The patterns are generally 2 rows of shelf holes, top to bottom. The hitch is that each opening has several adjustable shelves. From what I could tell, the only way to do this, within the program, was to position each shelf at ju...
