Creating end panels

Postby Stefan Vervloet » Wed, Jan 02 2008, 11:35AM

I see that some people, in my specific case Kerry, use end panels to finish the sides of visible wall or base cabinets. When hovering over the different parts in his layouts, I noticed that these end panels are considered actual individual cabinets by ecabinet systems.
I don’t have a clue how to start this type of “cabinet” in the cabinet editor. As soon as I set any of the dimensions close to or at zero, my cabinet no longer exists :(
Can anyone put me on the right track to create these end panels as cabinets?

When you have your cabinets layed out in a room, double click on the cabinet you want to place the end on. Right click and go to adjust cabinet features, then click on cabinet end. This is where you place an end to a cabinet. You can select which side to place the end on, what kind of material and any insets that you will want.If you have any questions feel free to call or email me.

Stefan,

Those are just cabinets with everything but the face frame removed. You must make your cabinet at least the depth of your face frame material. I usually build mine as one inch deep. You can create assemblies in the cabinet editor to attach your ends or place them Free Style in custom layout.

I did find the option before to attach panels in the custom layout (if it’s not a catalog cabinet). I thought the way Kerry does it gives more flexibility.
My problem was that I work frameless,… When I remove the sides of the cabinet there was nothing left. With face frames I can keep the frame and build the end panel only.
I see advantages either way depending on the layout.

Thanks!!

Stefan,

You can accomplish the same effect by making the sides, deck and top about 1/16" thick for frameless cabinets.
