Shelf holes in backs of cabinets

Postby Stuart Douglas » Fri, Apr 17 2015, 9:45AM

I see there is now a way to add shelf holes in the back without going into the part editor. I've been playing around with the new dialog trying to get a set of holes to be bored into the center only of the back on cabinets that exceed 30" in width. I can't seem to figure out how to eliminate the holes in the back on the left and right and keep the ones in the middle. That is, I only want one run of the holes in the back and only in the center. If anyone else has had success with this let me know how you got it to work. TIA.

Hi Stuart

I found the same problem. But what i do is put a negative in. So like -20mm in the left and right boxes. that kicks the holes out past the edges and you end up with just the centre holes.

Cheers

You need to set the Min Dist to Add Center Row to 30 and Set the Single Row Option to something like Max Edge Dist to 100 and Center. This will only a single center row for cabinets 30" to 100" wide.

Awesome, the negative value works well, as long as it doesnt put those holes that are outside the piece into an adjacent piece. I'll try it out and see if it works well. Thanks for all the input!
