Kitchen worktops and sinks
Module generates in current job worktops with different shape , with or without sink. It is creating element nomenclature for the purposes of the price offer formation. Putting worktops is basic operation at preparing jobs for kitchen furnishing and bar worktops.
For normal work , you must have entered parameters by default such as: layers names and element nomenclatures of the single elements, additional elements etc. The parameters by default are set in a similar way as in module Cabinet. It is necessary to have the entered record "TM" with a unit of measure "package" in the Units register.
Before you generate the worktop ,
you have to set its basic
8. Choose sink model and sink mixer to it. If you don’t want to have a sink, activate option Don’t add sink.Enable the option Create element nomenclature in section Sink to create an element nomenclature for the built-in sink. The sink are two basic types - for installation Above worktop and Under worktop. Each group is activated by the same named options and is listed by buttons - pointer for preview and choice of the model. The choice is doing with left mouse button over the icon of the respective model. Every sink has set own dimensions and position.
9. Click Create to create unit in the job. In the job with left mouse button specify its base point position. For base point of generated unit is taken front down left point. At large jobs, you can scale an area for better visibility and vice versa (buttons with magnifier) to make visible the whole job on the screen.
The edition of the cabinet's sizes with module "Change sizes of unit " will obtain an disproportion of its elements and sink. To change the sizes, you have to generate the cabinet again or to use the operation Unit correction.Worktop edgebanding - In section Edgebanding can determine which side of the worktop to be edgebanded. Set edgebanding applies only for the purposes of calculating the necessary materials and calculation of the price offer formation. They are not visible in the job.
Width of wall panels for left; right and back wall - Specifies the height of wall panels which cover the room walls without the columns in it. The value in a field Width of wall panels of room columns is applied to columns.
Thickness - Defines the current thickness of the wall panel.
front for left and right worktop - Define distance in front for
the respective vertical worktop. Positive values decrease its length
and negative increase it.
Left distance and distance from the right (for rear wall panel) - Define with how much to decrease or increase the worktop length for the respective side. Positive values decrease worktop length and negative - increase it. The distance can be measured using buttons to the left from fields and then to specify in the drawing the two end points, which define it.
Applies parameters of room's columns - The option allows to add wall panels and plinths on columns which are taking place in left and / or the right corner of a room. The options Left corner и Right corner define which column to be covered (when enabled) and which not (when unabled).The options are enabled at initial loading of window Wall panel settings.
Front distance for left and right wall panel - Defines the distance inside for the respective wall panel. Decreases the length of the wall panel, too.The distance can be measured using buttons to the left from fields and then to specify in the drawing the two end points, which define it.
the horizontal worktop - When the
option is checked, the wall panel will stand behind the wall panel, not
above it. If there is a left / right wall panel, the length of
the horizontal worktop will decrease by their thicknesses.
Rounding - Beveling of the worktop's ends
The button opens a dialog that allows you to change the form of the worktop ends. By default the form is rectangular. The entered radius of rounding defines the protruding of the rounded sector. The zero values create beveled sectors.
The Rounding/ Beveling can be executed simultaneously for left and for right side of the worktop. The option for changing of the front edges' shape is active by default. If you want to round/ bevel the back edges of the worktop, you have to check the options Chamfered in section Back for the concrete side.
The options Rounds off the left side of the worktop and Rounds off the right side of the worktop automatically set a bilaterally rounded worktop (the parameters are in a mode by default). The entered values in the sections Radius for rounding define the radius of the all 4 edges. The automatically loaded values of the parameters can be changed (just enter the new values into the fields). The worktop shape can be made a rectangular or chamfered without rounding, too.
Rounding-Beveling facial part of worktop
Besides at the
ends, worktop can be rounded or bevelled and in its facial part. Values
in the row above (pink fields) sets position of points at depth
of worktop, as the distance is set toward its front left point. These,
in the fields below define distance between two next points on worktop
length. Positive radiuses create convex and negative-concave arc. In
the shown illustration will be generated S-figurative worktop with
length 240 cm., that contains three areas: first is convex with length
90 cm ,second area is with length 60 cm. and concave form and third is
convex with 90 cm. length.
Creation and work with templates
The module supports a system for saving and review of the saved templates (constructions). The already saved templates can be loaded again at any time. It is recommendatory to create templates for the most frequently used constructions.
- Save the current parameters of the cabinet as a template - Opens the window Templates for saving a new template. It saves already configured constructions of units for generating, which can be used subsequently. Enter the template name. All parameters, in this number the layers' names are saved.When you save a template, you can add an explanatory text to it (enter it into the field Text to the template). You can create and save an icon to the template for preview. You have to save the image in a directory (folder) C:\acad_pic\SHABLONI_PLOT_MIWKAunder the template's name. For more concrete information read the theme Icon creation -step by step. The duplication of the names of the templates is not allowed.
Every template saves together with the names of the element nomenclatures to it. These nomenclatures are unique for a concrete template. If in a consequence you load this template again, the cabinet will be generated, using the entered names of the nomenclature elements for the purposes of the price offer formation and the cutting. The uniqueness of a template has relation with the current names of the elements' layers, too.
- Shows the register of templates to select - Opens dialog Templates , that contains register of all saved constructions. To load the template, choose it in the list and press Set. Its parameters load in the dialog , replacing the existing settings. To delete a template , choose it in the list and press button Delete. At deleting template is deleting and its picture , if there is such.
Text to the template -In this field you can enter an explanatory text to a template or to edit an already existing one. The changes are saved by clicking the button Correction of the text to the template.
The saved templates can be loaded directly in the module Insert units.
