titusc Posted July 26, 2016 Share Posted July 26, 2016 Hi, I want to draw a cabinet that resembles the one in this photo. http://www.houzz.com/photos/8487897/Blue-dream-basement-traditional-basement-montreal I am running into the following issues ... 1) If I use one single full height cabinet, then create the cabinet doors, openings, etc by double clicking on cabinet -> Front, it accurately gives me only one Separation - Horizontal or Separation - Vertical between adjacent Face items. However when using the dimension tool later and draw across the full height or width of the cabinet, it does not give me the break down of height or width of the Face items and instead gives me the full height or width of the whole cabinet. From the purpose of using dimension it makes sense to assemble the whole cabinet by using individual smaller cabinets but doing so it'd double add these Separation - Horizontal or Separation - Vertical items between cabinets. I'm confused on whether I should always put together a large cabinet using smaller ones or edit / add the Face items of one single cabinet. 2) If you look at the photo carefully you'd notice the Separation - Horizontal piece where the TV is resting on is quite thick and is above the doors. However when I'm in Elevation view I can see the doors are covering this Separation - Horizontal item, instead of the Separation - Horizontal item resting above the doors. Any idea how I can achieve what I want? 3) If I want to use dimension tool to measure the inside dimensions of the opening Face item where the TV is, I think I should be using the Point to Point dimension tool but I notice the start and / or end arrows don't necessarily begins or ends on the inside edge of Separation - Horizontal or Separation - Vertical items. How can I make the Point to Point dimension tool to snap to the edge of the Separation - Horizontal or Separation - Vertical items? Thanks.
