Shelf Heights and Cutouts V11
This document will discuss shelf heights for:
1. Typical shelves which are automatically spaced inside a carcass
2. Shelves in Tall Standard which allow for comprehensive shelf adjustments
o Standard method
o Custom method
3. Cutout shelves for Tall Angled and Tall Angled Walk-in
All Cabinets (Except Tall Standard)
Normally shelves are automatically spaced inside a carcass. In the Catalog/Drawing Properties, these are controlled on the "Shelves" page of the relevant "Construction" category as shown:
NOTE: These are similar settings under Construction Standard, Construction Corner and Construction Angled categories.
The quantity is calculated based on the minimum gap between shelves. By doing this, the number of shelves increases as the cabinet gets taller.
It is possible to override this and customise the shelf positions in any cabinet on the Shelves page of the Labour and Construction category.
Check the “Use Custom Shelf Gaps” checkbox to enter in the height of the shelves. Note that the heights are measure from the top of the previous shelf (or bottom) to the underside of the shelf.
NOTE: The Tall Standard cabinet is an exception to this rule as it already allows for comprehensive shelf adjustments, as discussed below.
Shelf for Tall Standard Cabinets
Typically shelves are automatically spaced inside a carcass (see HowTo - Shelf Heights). However, the Tall Standard cabinet is an exception to this rule as it allows for comprehensive shelf adjustments. There are two methods of shelving.
1. Standard Shelving
On the Shelves1 page of the "Cabinet Details" category, note that only the options applicable for "Standard Shelving" are made available (i.e. the "Cutout Shelves" options are greyed out).
2. Custom Shelving
On the Shelves1 page, not only are the Cutout Shelves options made available, as shown on the left but also another page, Shelves2 is made available, as illustrated below.
On the Shelves2 page, when the “Style” is changed from Standard to Cutout, you can have a cutout at the front of that shelf. You may wish to change to the Cutout style for all shelves, or for only some of the shelves.
The “Cutout Type” on the Shelves1 page gives the option of “Square” or “Radiused”. Both of these options can use a radius on the corners of the cutout (except the Back Radius which cannot be applied to the Radiused cutout type). The red lines below indicate the adjustment of the radius for the back corners, and the green lines below indicate the adjustment of the front corners.
See the images below to clearly see the difference between “Squared” and “Radiused” cutout types.
Squared Cutout Type:
Radiused Cutout Type:
In this example shown below, the top 4 shelves have the Square cutout type selected:
Alternatively, in the example below, the top 4 shelves have the Radiused cutout type selected:
Cutout Shelves for Tall Angled Cabinets
The Tall Angled and Tall Angled Walk-in cabinets now have a “Cutout” button when “Style1” shelves are selected. The “Cutout” button launches a cutout properties page, where the presence and shape are defined:
