Cabinets - Generated multielement units

Top - construction settings


Top settings

The options for distances and ending are active depending on the cabinet construction.  You can change the top position and sizes and create non-standard shaped top.

Copy top parameters for bottom -  This button copies all parameters, which define the top settings and set them as bottom settings. It is a useful operation for fast and easy equalization of these two elements form settings.

Distance below - Defines value of entry of the top between the end panels. It changes the cabinet internal volume. It is reflected in the element nomenclature of a back panel and partitions. 

Front distance - Set the top's distance from the cabinet front edge (from cabinet face to it back).

Back distance -Set the top's distance from the cabinet back  edge.

Left Distance, Right Distance - Set the top deviation depending on its sizes. The options Left edgeband  and Right edgeband are active only for construction End panels overlap the bottom and top and inactive option Top above.  In other cases edgeband adds automatically.

   Checkbox  Saves distance and size of a detail and Scales the distance depending on the current cabinet dimension - These two options have mutually supplemented functions. Their combination will allow you to save the position and the size of additional details after changing the outer dimensions of the created unit.

For example: We have a cabinet with sizes Lenght = 100cm., Height = 70 cm. and  Depth = 50cm. and Top sizes Lenght = 100 cm.,Depth = 50. We enter distances: Left distance = 10 cm. and Right  distance = 5 cm. The result is an element 85 cm. long. Sellect the checkbox Saves distance and size of a detail for the Left distance. Mark the checkbox Scales the distance depending on the current cabinet dimensionfor Right distance.

   Let's change the cabinet length on 150cm. Here what result is received:
    1. The detail doesn't change its left position (Left distance remains 10 cm.) and length (85 cm.)
    2. The Right distance recalculates and becomes 150-10-85=55 cm.
   If these options are changed we will receive: Length = 85 cm., Right distance = 5 cm. The Left distance becomes 150-5-85= 60cm.

If the option Scales the distance depending on the current cabinet dimension  is checked  for one distance only , then the size of the element and this distance will be changed proportionally on the edited cabinet sizes.  For example: Let's generate a cabinet with depth 75cm. The depth of thå Top is  75 cm. Enter a value for front distance 10cm. and check the option Scales the distance depending on the current cabinet dimension. The element's  depth becomes 65cm. Let's change the cabinet depth on 90 centimetres. The coefficient of the size changing  will be  90/75= 1.2.  The element front distance becomes 1.2*10=12cm., and its depth - 1.2*65 = 78 cm.

If the checkbox Scales the distance depending on the current cabinet dimension  is checked for 2 opposite distances, the scaling will be executed for these two distances and for the detail's size. For example: We have a cabinet with: Lenght = 100 cm.,  Left distance=5 cm. and Right distance = 5 cm. The element's  lenght becomes 90cm. Let's change the cabinet length on 200 cm. The coefficient of the size changing  will be 200/100=2. The entered distances become accordingly on 2*5=10 cm., and detail's  length becomes 2*90=180 cm.

The  button "Edit shape" loads a window for change of the shape of details. The way of work in it is described in the section Common operations for the cabinet details.

Grain direction - In this section are defined the initial sizes of the top panel, which will be loaded in the list of details for cutting (nesting) in a window Elements for cutting and in export files to other nesting software (Cutting, Optimik etc.). If the option On lenght is specified, the lenght of the element top becomes a length of a detail for cutting. The depth of top becomes height of a detail for cutting. If the option On width is checked, the top lenght becomes a height of detail for cutting, and the top's depth becomes  length of the cutting detail. By default the option On lehght is checked.

Rotation- When the option is checked the sizes of the detail for cutting will be given as allowed for rotation in the list Elements for cutting (module Cutting  of materials). The the state of the option affects to the export files to other applications for cutting (Optimik, Cutting, Giben, Plan IQ, Ardis, Holzher....), too. If the option is not checked, the detail can be  rotated only if this was specially set in the list of the elements.

Attachment of furniture fittings for detail installation to the end panels - The fixing element is selected in the section Template schemes of furniture fittings.  Left click on a element selects it, right click cancels the made choice. The kind of the element by default defines in Prameters by default, page Furniture fittings. The section is enabled when the detail (top, bottom) is situated between the cabinet end panels.

Copy for bottom - This operation copies parameters of the chosen fixing element and transfers them to the bottom panel of the cabinet as makes two details equal.


Rails under top


For more stable cabinet construction you can generate one or two rails under its top (2 vertical, 2 horizontal, 1 horizontal +1 vertical or 1 vertical + 1 horizontal) either for each area or in one area only. Select an option Add rails   and  specify whether there will be edgebanded the rails (option Front rail - back/ top edgeband and  Back rail - back/ top edgeband, Front rail-front/ bottom edgeband and Back rail-front/ bottom edgeband) and enter their Width. The rails generate an own element nomenclature for a material (Cabinet: rails) and edgeband (Cabinet rails' front edgeband, Cabinet rails' back edgeband, Cabinet rails bottom edgeband and Cabinet rails top edgeband). For rectangular details will be added the element thickness, too.

You can put rails both under the top and on the floor of the cabinet, and in both positions at the same time for each area (if the option The rails are between partitions is active). For this purpose, activate the option Add rails in the respective area, then select options Above (to rails under the top) and / or Below (for rails on the floor).To choose combination for the position of the rails (above, below), activate the respective button and select one with the left mouse button. For each position and area you may select a different distribution of rails.

The common width for all rails sets into the field Width.  You can enter a personal width for each rail (front and back) in every section, too. Enter the new values into the fields front and back. This way you can edit rails' distances of the front and back rail, too.

The rails are between partitions - When this option is active, the the partitions divide the rails in separated sectors. For each segment creates an element nomenclature (for material and for edgeband).When this option is switched on, there is a possibility for personal definition of the elements' parameters for each area - in which area to be generated rails, the way of their turning (vertical or horizontal), as well as their distances Front  and Back. The option allows to generate a cabinet with some partitions and rails between them (kitchen cabinets for example).

Left and Right - They are active when an option The rails are between partitions is not  checked.

The positive values decrease  the rail's length, and negative increase it.

From above, Below - Determine how much to raise (below) lower rails  toward  the bottom of the cabinet or how to move down from the top (from above) upper. This, combined with the possibility to determine different widths of each element, allows this section to create details with other than that specific purpose (shelves and other additional elements in the cabinet). The distance can be defined by specifying of two ending points in the drawing. Takes in view the measured distance on vertical, not the measured length
