Curved Panel

Postby Andrew Gloster » Wed, Jan 23 2008, 9:39AM

Hello everyone,
i have created a curved panel using the cube editor, i am using this for curved gallery end, and this is used for the gap at the bottom. i have a problem with changing the size of the cabinet because the dispaly panel doesnt move with the cabinet. The only way i have found around this so far is to create several different sizes of panels and import them when the size has changed. can anyone help me to enable the display to move with the cabinet.

thanks

You cannot change the size of a display board, cube or panel.

Dan, there could be a way if he save the panel in a .HSF!
Look Andrew, you need to export your part or panel that you created in Ecabinet system object file (*.hfs) to be able the scale the part in question.
How to do it:

1: Create your part the shape you want
2: Instead of saving in your regular cabinet or other files that you have, click files, export selection and save it in a file that you create (i called it "special" it's easier to find it after in the Ecab files.
3:Open diplay part editor and load the part in question

4: Modify it if needed for the aspect of the material and colors or what ever you need it to look like and save it in :sample_HFS and give it a name
Image
5: Now you are able to open it in the cabinet editor from the display object and resize it if needed or simply load your the part in your "Custom layout" (where you're working with the cabinets on the floor plan) and resize it as needed :mrgreen:

It's a bit long to do but this way you can create all kind of parts and tweak them to the size you need!

Have fun

Mais oui! Merci Francis.

That method takes much longer to initially create the display object but does indeed make it quicker for subsequent scaling.
