    saving multiple cabinets as one in my library

    As for technique- The second way I designed the cabinet was to make one 5' cabinet and relocated the separation-verticals. (it's all about the door hinge swings) However I was unable to get the center doors "framed panel". i.e. glass, wood frame, wood frame, glass. I could only get either all glass or all framed. Is it possible? (second thumbnail above) lots to learn, but getting there. Matt

    saving multiple cabinets as one in my library

    Thank you again...Eric
  4. I've designed a 5' entertainment cabinet with 4 doors below. I'm trying to get the (2) outside doors stained glass, the (2) inside doors framed. There are (2) ways to do this. One big cabinet using "seperation --vertical". The second, bunching (3) cabinets together. 18" glass, 24" double framed doors, 18" glass. The bunching of the cabinets IS the look I want, now I would like to save this to my library as one cohesive unit. I can Shift and click the 3 cabinets together, but can only move them as one unit. I can't save them as one unit. (First pic attached it's the far right cabinet I'm trying to save) When I do the one big cabinet with sepration- vertical's. I either get all glass doors, or all framed. (2nd pic) I do a lot of custom cabinetry and saving the designs would be real helpful as one unit. Thanks, Matt (3puttking)

    Raised Breakfast bar above countertop height

    Got it. Thank you Katalyst777. Still working the ins and outs of the help forums & software. I did try a video search originally. It turns out I was in the "sales forum" leading to "zero results on your search"...which sparked my remark of I can't be the only one building a raised peninsula. Learning the ins and outs. Intuitively building a "railing" was not part of my solution process...however did exactly what I wanted. Problem resolved, however will now search to find out how and where all this stuff is being saved...and how to be able to post partial plans or thumbnails...so I can communicate better on the forum Thanks for the help, Matt

    Raised Breakfast bar above countertop height

    Thank you for the feedback...added the signature...saved a thumbnail, but don't know where it was saved to and can't find it. Can't seem to capture the screen or figure out how to do that. Went to the help screens, didn't really help as far as saving. Watched a few of the video's, will watch more. I'm getting the sense, I need to install a base cabinet, make it the height I want, then shrink the depth of the cabinet to create my overhang. Add a corbel.
  7. I can't seem to build a breakfast bar peninsula that is 40" tall. My kitchen is "U" shaped with one leg of the "U" a peninsula, and base cabinet 36" finish height. Want to add 18" overhang at 40" tall for bar stools overlooking the countertop. Can't seem to build a single interior wall less than full height. Once I get that done, how could I add a countertop? I could make a real skinny cabinet & dimension my countertop overhang. I'm pretty sure I'm not the first person to do a kitchen bar stool countertop. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks 3 putt
  8. Will post in other forum...just realized i was in the sales q & A.
  9. Would also love to know how to build a breakfast bar peninsula that is 40" tall. My kitchen is "U" shaped with one leg of the "U" a peninsula, and cabinet 36" finish height. Want to add 18" overhang at 40" tall for bar stools overlooking the countertop. Can't seem to build a single interior wall less than full height. Once I get that done, how could I add a countertop? I could make a real skinny cabinet & dimension my countertop overhang. I'm pretty sure I'm not the first person to do a kitchen bar stool countertop. Any help would be appreciated. OK cabinets and graph paper returned...not sure why...not sure if it was something I changed.
  10. Thanks Dave. I've ended up with the architect version. It's going well and more or less doing what I want. There is one glitch that has just occurred, and I can't seem to figure out where it came from and what caused it. I've got my floor plan, cabs, soffits, virtually everything down to my coffee maker. I'm not sure what I was doing, but for some reason there is a stripe of the graph scale blocks that have disappeared. I'm fully aware of "Tools">"Display Options"> checking the box to remove views that get in your way. The "graph scale squares" missing, extend beyond my plan drawing and go all the way up to the top of the page. It's as if I drew in a soffit that extended beyond my exterior walls to infinity. This "hides/covers" my upper and lower cabinets along one wall. The cabinets exist in the camera mode, so they are there. What's also strange is my "dimensions Lines" on the outside of the house remain intact, without being obscured. The graph/scale lines are obscured all the way to the top of the page. Don't know if I've explained this properly, but I've tried in the "display options" removing all the check boxes, and adding the layers, one by one. Isn't fixing it. Thanks, Matt
  11. Thank you Derek...spoke with sales dept who have answered a number of my questions. I'll try the architect version......although I know I'll end up with the Pro Version. Appreciate you getting back to me, and look forward to using the software. 3 putt KING
  12. I've been building 30 years...I do not have time to sit at a desk and draw up plans because building is where I make money. However, there are times I do need to submit a building plan to the town for simple additions....like the one my wife wants me to do at my house. I've tried software over the past 20 years and have found, it's either too simple and made for a homeowner to oooohh and ahhhh over a 3D walk through with no dimensions and or ability to get plans or way to complicated requiring 6 months of full time training giving me too many options. I've played with the trial version of HD Suite....I can't seem to get the plans out of that version that the town is going to like. I'm virtually positive the HD PRO will do it, but at $500, It's not going to happen. Which leads to the architect version, which certainly sounds like it should give me an architectural plan that will make the town happy....any thoughts? Yes, yes yes, I know there's a chart with what the comparisons are. Here's my laziness kicking in and why....when I downloaded Trial version of HD Suite, my original laptop didn't have a big enough graphics card...so while laptop handled my business and what I do on my computer fine, it didn't run the HD Suite pgm....so I bought a new laptop just to run pgm....so I downloaded Trial version on new laptop...spent 3 hours inputting dimensions and building new kitchen..AGAIN This time...3D graphics were a dream...layout...the whole 9 yards until....wife walked in and said "lets go the movies.....NOW!" so we went to the movies...when we got back, I went back to tinker with drawings to find out if it would give me the plans, and elevations, etc. etc. and lo and behold.... The new computer updated the new system files, turned itself F@#$ing off and back the @$@ on and poof there went my trial version plans with all my carefully dimensioned rooms and whatnot. So....what I do know, is that I liked the software and how simple it was to use...what I don't know is if i'm going to get drawings to submit to my town (elect, plumbing, framing, foundation, insulation, etc.) before I enter my dimensions for a third time...
