Medicine Cabinets

Recommended Posts

I can not seem to be able to find or create a frameless recessed medicine cabinet, which I use in almost all my design projects. Anyone have an idea for me? Thanks!

Have you tried making one from an upper cabinet? You can Control drag it into the wall.

 

The 3D Warehouse may have one done in SketchUp you could import.

 

It helps if we know what title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2014, 2015 etc) you are using. You can add this info to your signature by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click My Settings, then Signature on the left.

Part of the trick of doing niches and med. cabs is to cut a hole in the wall using a "doorway" with the casing turned off. Such an object (doorway with casing off) looks like a hole in the wall. Position the doorway and resize it for your purposes before turning the casings off (a doorway with casings off is almost impossible to select in camera views), the you place your wall niche or medicine cabinet in the provided hole in the wall. Of course such a hole provided for a niche  or med cab leaves a hole on the opposite wall side that you fill with a thin soffit object to patch the unwanted hole. Just control-dragging a med. cab into a wall also works and leaves no opposite side wall hole but it does frame properly where the later method does not properly wall frame.
