Double glazed cabinet doors

Postby Sergio Fetter » Fri, May 15 2009, 9:38AM

Hello everyone....

Working on a project and the customers want to see their gold glaze in the drawing. I have looked all over... is there anyway to do that? I just want the looks on it so my customer can be happy.

Thanks!

Sergio,
This question has been raised before, and as I recall, without major skills in using a Photoshop-like product using the airbrush tool on the final rendering, what you ask is not available. I personally avoid this trap by always advising the customer the screen rendering is suggestive of final color and finish, but is really only accurate for the mechanical construction details. I always bring a sample of wood finished as they would like it, and get them to initial the back of the sample piece (pieces) as final approval. I can't see how you can guarantee to match exactly what's on the screen except for mechanical details.
Anyway, that's my humble take on your question. Perhaps others will have suggestions.
regards,

Peter,
Thanks for the answer.
I will look and see how long would take to do in photoshop....

Thanks for the idea on the finish product. I pretty much say the same thing... I can get something similar, but no guarantee of being exactly the same.
Well... I will have to work around it.

Thanks Peter!

I don't even use the species of wood that I will be building the cabinets out of in my renderings. I always use Maple. All I am showing them is the design and layout of the cabinets, not the minute details such as color and glazing. To much time and effort need to go into it to make it worth while. Show them a door sample with the glazing.

I still had one lady that couldn't grasp the concept and had to have the drawings in solid color. And even then she had a hard time grasping the detail of the drawings, even when I rotated it in front of her to show her the different views. Some people just don't have the ability to see things in their heads. As most of us building cabinets and whole room full of cabinets can see every aspect of the design before we even sketch the first line on a pc of paper.
