notched shelf for hiding the shelf pins

Postby alainalbert » Sat, Mar 21 2015, 10:43PM

Is there any way to create a notch in the shelf that would hide the shelf pins like in the picture attached? I hate doing this in part editor and i suspect that there must be a better way.
thanks for your help

I'd try treating it as a fixed shelf with a modified RTA pattern.

Sample file attached just to give an idea. You'd likely need to add a 'phantom' shelf to get the shelf holes in the sides of the cabinet, though you may be able to incorporate these into the modified RTA pattern as well.

Hi Nat

that's very clever, thank you very much. I'll try to see if i can work with this given that the rest of my cabinet is connected using regular KD fittings.

Not sure how to attach a ptn file, but I just drew a rectangle with coordinates in millimeters (0,-2.5) (11, 2.5) with a negative depth of 6. This would likely need to be adjusted, but will give the idea.
