Back Post for Corner Cabinet

Postby Nat Wheatley » Fri, Jul 10 2015, 1:04PM

We manually add a back 'post' to the attached cabinet, the notches for which are done in the PE. Is there a way for the software to add the back in automatically?

The back edge of the deck of the cabinet gets cut back varied amounts job to job, depending on the size of the baseboard in the room, which requires a number of manual changes in the CM which I'd like to eliminate, if possible.

Nat,

I see two possibilities.

Option A (if you want the shelf holes, I would go with this option):
1.) Add the backs on the cabinet using 3/4 Closet material.
2.) Set the left back to a phantom part.
3.) Part edit the right back chopping the whole left edge away.
4.) Set it to the width you want via the constraint manager.
5.) Adjust the other parts insets and PE cuts to get them where you need them.

Option B:
1.) Add the backs on the cabinet using a 6mm material (to automatically get the 6mm back inset I think you are wanting).
2.) Set both backs to a phantom part.
3.) Add a back stretcher and adjust it to the size wanted.
4.) Adjust the other parts insets and PE cuts to get them where you need them.

I will attach the cabinets that I tweaked for you to review. You would have to finish up PE cuts and insets to get all the parts where you want them, but they show the idea (ran out of time to spend on it).

NOTE: In case anyone is wondering and tried to load Nat's cabinet, It was saved in V6.1 Beta so it can only be loaded by a beta member using the beta version. Likewise, the cabinets I attached are also beta versions. Everyone else will get an error if loading them into V6 Bld 17.
