Convex Face Frame Cabinet

Postby Kerry Fullington » Mon, Dec 15 2014, 2:24PM

I woke up last night with the solution to drawing curved face frames in eCabinets. The funny thing was, I haven't been trying to do this. It just popped into my head. I will try a concave next.

Nice Kerry. Did you use display boards, cubes or panel? We did something similar awhile back. I was able to contact Dan Epps and he sent me his video that he made on how to make the doors also.
Yes! Oh Yes! I Think We Are Going to make It!

Scott,

That is an actual face frame.

Cool! Could you elaborate on how you accomplished this? Unless I am missing something I did not think that you could use different thickness materials for face frames.

Scott,

That is exactly it. Create a face frame material with a thickness equal to the rise of your frame arc then create a tool to shape the parts.

That,s why you are the wizard. So, do you think the whole thing will cut out?

Will,

The box will certainly nest and cut fine. The face frame parts would be just straight cuts in 6" material. I would need to create the curved mid rails in the part editor if I wanted to nest them.

Thanks George. Really good to hear from you.

Scott,

I would like to see Dan's video as I can't remember the technique that he used. Here are some doors I did a while back but they are way too involved to use every day.
