Is there a way to make doors with sheet stock panels ?

Hello all, I am still new to eCabs. Can someone direct me to how I would setup a door so that it's made from a sheet stock panel?

Welcome Andy,

Yes you can by creating a board stock item with the same specs as sheet stock.

Andy, Start by going to the door and drawer front designer using the button in the toolbar, then select the tab for the component you wish to design, door or front. use the source drop down bar to select slab. Go to the standard directory, then select the standard slab. Use the input fields to select the material and give it a name you can be familiar with. no when you apply doors or fronts you may select this option to put on your cabinets.

Thanks for the answers all! I am guessing you can't get a layout of the best way to cut the panels from a 4' X 8' sheet good like you can for all of the other parts of a cabinet ? seems a bit strange but ill go with it :)

Andy,

If you use Stuart Douglas' instructions, you should be able to get what you need.

If your doors and fronts are all the same material they will nest together on a sheet. Be sure to set the defaults so that your fronts and doors are always the same material. You can specify if your material has grain, and if the parts need to be contiguous (matched grain). to keep things correctly laid out while maximizing the sheet yield.

I believe Andy is wanting a 5pc. flat panel door with hardwood rails and plywood for the panel.
