Cabinets -Generated multielement units
Additional details - parameters
In this case the word "detail" means an additional cabinet detail (panel) . It generates together with the cabinet and can create an own element nomenclature and layers.
The unit of measure is set for each detail separately. For elements with a unit of measure l.m. can be selected on what axis to calculate its nomenclature. Their sizes and position can be set by entering of distances.
Click the mouse left button and
select a flag Add detail.
its parameters. The available options are:
If you have no entered distances, the element will be generated on the full sizes of the cabinet's bottom base point.
Buttons for automatic setting of combination of details - These buttons activate the necessary number of free additional details and adjusts their parameters so to create the shown design.
Option Doubles the thickness of the element and the quantity of the element nomenclature - The active option doubles the element thickness. The element's area doubles with the purposes of the price offer, too. This element will participate twice in the cutting list and cutting map. The element nomenclature of the edgeband by default is a single. To create a double edgeband nomenclature, use double click on the option. Loads a window where you have to select Double edgeband and click Set.In the drawing the detail will look as a one common element.
Checkbox Saves distance and size of a detail and Scales the distance depending on the current cabinet dimension - These two options have a mutually supplemented function. Their combination allow you to save the position and the size of additional details after changing the dimensions of the created unit.
have a cabinet with
sizes Length = 100cm., Height = 70 cm. and Depth = 50cm. Let's create an
additional detail with these distances: Left distance = 10 cm. and Right
distance = 5 cm.
The result is an element 85 cm. long. Select the checkbox Saves distance and

for the Left
distance. For the Right
distance check Scales the

change the cabinet's length on 150cm. Here what result is received:
If the option Scales the distance depending on the current cabinet dimension is checked for one distance only , then the size of the additional element and this distance will be changed proportionally to the edited cabinet sizes. For example: Let's generate a cabinet with height 75cm. We create a vertical additional element to it with distance from below 10cm. and an active option Scales the distance depending on the current cabinet dimension. The element's height becomes 65cm. Let's change the cabinet height on 90 centimetres. The coefficient of the size changing will be 90/75= 1.2. The element distance from below becomes 1.2*10=12cm., and its height - 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 size changing is 200/100=2. The entered distances become 2*5=10 cm., and the detail's length becomes 2*90=180 cm.
- This button returns you in the drawing to measure the necessary distance. Press the button and specify the distance's two end points. The measured value will be loaded into the field automatically. This operation makes easier the setting of the necessary distances during the additional details' creation.
The initial form of each detail is rectangular. But it can be changed. Press the button Edit shape. A new window opens. Here you can create non-rectangular shapes and to save them in a library. The way of work here is similar to that in the form Construction settings -Top.
The possible deviation at calculation of the edgeband's quantity for non-standard shapes is 5-10 % (with positive or negative sign).
Rotation - Here you can set an rotation angle of the additional detail. The rotation makes in two directions:
The created element can get holes in it. Their number and sizes depend on the entered into the fields Number of holes and Radius values. The layer of an element is also a layer of a hole's edgeband. They don't generate an element nomenclature.
The Preview shows the cabinet in a schematic view. The button becomes active if there is an active additional detail. The active in the moment detail is shown in red colour, and the others - in blue.
Always shows preview after parameter editing - When the option is active, any changes of the detail parameters will be displayed in the preview. For this it must be active (Preview button opens it).
Cancels entered parameters -Restores the parameters of the current additional detail in mode by default. The operation is a personal for each detail and requires confirmation.I f the option on the right is checked, the parameters of all additional details will be set in a mode by default and they become inactive.Main page DS User guide
