Cabinets - Generated multielement units

Construction settings - Bottom

Allows change of bottom position in relation to other cabinet elements in the construction.
Copy bottom parameters for a top б- This button copies all parameters, which define the bottom shape and set them as  a ceilling settings. It is a useful operation for fast and easy unification of their settings.

Divide cabinet bottom between partitions -The option activates the creating of separate bottoms between partitions.In the checked areas will be generated bottom and vice versa. Bottom 1 relates to the area from the left end panel to first partition; bottom 2 - between the first and second partition; bottom 3 - between the second and third partition and bottom 4 - between a third partition and right end panel. When the option is checked the bottom shape can not be edited.

Grain direction - In this section are defined the initial sizes of the bottom 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 bottom becomes a length of a detail for cutting. The depth of bottom becomes height of a detail for cutting. If the option On width is checked, the bottom lenght becomes a height of detail for cutting, and the bottom'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.

Distance below - Specifies a bottom deviation on  a direction to top. It reduces the internal space for shelves and partitions. The size of a back panel decreases too. When you add a baseboard or legs it is necessary to have in view and their height too. It is possible to receive a hole between them and ceiling. The option is active only if the chosen construction is End panels overlap the bottom and top.

Front distance, Back distance - Specifies a distance of bottom in two directions - in front and from the back. The option is active for each cabinet construction

Lifts partitions with value DISTANCE BELOW and BOTTOM THICKNESS -The option is active by default. When it is active, the partitions rise with entered into a field " Distance  below " value  and with the completeness of a material for the bottom, set by the operator. The option increases a range of the generated cases by the module. It must be switched off when the option Generates baseboards  between partitions  in the form  Baseboard is active and the cabinet  has a bottom.

Left distance, Right distance- Set the bottom deviation  depending on its sizes.

 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 allows you to save a position and the size of additional details after changing of outer dimensions of the created unit.

For example: We have a cabinet by sizes Lenght = 100cm., Height = 70 cm. and  Depth = 50cm. and bottom sizes Lenght = 100 cm.,Depth = 50. We enter distances: Left distance = 10 cm. and Right  distance = 5 cm.The result is a 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 dimension for Right distance.  Let's change the cabinet length on 150cm. Here what result is received:
    1. The detail don'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 thе bottom 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.

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 fitings. The section is enabled when the detail (top, bottom) is situated between the cabinet end panels and /or partitions.

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

Thickness of edgebands
Button Thickness of edgebands - In this section is determined the personal thickness of the edgebands of the detail. It is selected from the drop-down list and for each edgeband can be set different thickness. If the thickness of the edgebands will be taken off from the size of the material , check the option of the respective  edgeband, which thickness will decrease the size of the detail. If the taking off will be made for all edgebands, check the optionFor all edgebands.

   The button Edit shape  opens a dialogue window for bottom setting input. The edgeband of the ovalshaped areas creates its own element nomenclature. Edgeband to chamferred areas creates own element nomenclature too. The filleting (chamfer ) begins from the four basic corners. Then you can use the intermediate points  parameters. This is necessary for correct calculation of element nomenclatures.

The possible  deviation at calculation of edgeband quantity for streamline forms  is  5-10 % (with positive or negative sign).

During cabinet generating the bottom automatically connects with a layer Cabinet Floor - material and its edgebands - Cabinet Floor -edgeband. This allows to connect these layers with individual texture, independently of colour of the cabinet case.

The element Bottom can have its own thickness of material. It creates an element nomenclature for its edgebands, too -   Cabinet  floor - edgeband  front, Cabinet  floor - back edgeband, Cabinet floor left edgeband and Cabinet  floor - right edgeband. For rectangular details will be added the element thickness, too.
