Inset Drawers and Doors

Inset Drawers and Doors

Inset Drawers & Doors

The process of creating inset drawers and doors are the same across all Universal cabinets, so we will be using a Tall Universal in this HowTo document.

Inset Doors

This is by far the easier option. As the Tall Universal cabinet by default already has doors attached, the method of setting the doors to be inset is the changing of one simple checkbox. On the page Doors -> Doors, click the checkbox marked Inset.

This is the only option requiring to be changed to set Inset doors in a Universal cabinet.

Inset Drawers

The process of creating Inner Drawers is a bit more involved, as there is not one single checkbox to change, and the cabinets do not have drawers by default.

The steps required to achieve this are as follows:

      1. On the page Cabinet Details -> Area 1, set the Content of section Left to Drawers.

      2. (Optional) On the page Doors -> Div Doors, turn off the Include checkbox to remove the doors, so you can see the drawers inside the cabinet.

      3. On the page A1L1:Drawers -> Fronts, turn on the checkbox marked Include & Height. This turns on the drawer fronts.

      4. While taking note of the Carcass material thickness (which can be found on the page Materials -> Carcass), on the page A1L1:Drawers -> Fronts, add             the gap values of the Top, Left, Right and Bottom to the material thickness.

            a. Eg, if the Left is currently set to 1mm and your material thickness is 16mm, then you would change the Left to 17mm (1mm + 16mm).

            b. Also take note of the Behind value below the Gaps measurements, as you will need this in the next step.

      2. While taking note of the Fronts material thickness (which can be found on the page A1L1:Drawers -> Materials-Fronts), on the page                         Cabinet Details -> Area 1, set the Recess Front value to the same as the material thickness, plus the Behind value from Step 4b.

            a. Eg, if your drawer fronts are 18mm thick and the Behind value found in Step 4b is 2mm, then set the Recess Front value to 20mm (18mm             + 2mm).
