Cabinet fillers not working as described

Recommended Posts

HD Architectural 2016 (17.3.2.2x64)

The Kitchen I'm designing will need both wall and base fillers, and according to the help file "If two cabinets meeting at a corner are separated from each other by 3”(75 mm) or less, the program will automatically generate a filler in the angle between them."  I'm finding that I have to be UNDER 3" for it to occur.  From a programming perspective it feels like they're checking for "distance < 3", when it should be "distance <= 3".  Do I have to try to force them all to be 2 15/16" apart?

I just did a test using Chief Premier. Placed 2 cabinets off a corner so the boxes were 3" apart in both directions. They did not join.

 

Brought them 1/16 closer and a counter top was generated filling in the corner, and fillers were generated between the cabinets.

 

Suggest sending to support as a bug.

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.

You can also just make filler upper cabinets and base cabinets that are 3" wide and manually place them, before auto fillers were added several versions that was the only way it could be done and the old method still works.

Okay, I sent it to support as a possible bug.

 

The 3" cabinet workaround works well too, thank you.

 

For anyone else that wants to do it, I had to go into Edit/Default Settings.../Cabinets/General Cabinet and change the minimum cabinet width from 9" to 3".  And for each filler cabinet I made, I suppressed the label in the "label" section of the cabinet properties page to reduce the visual noise of a label like BCW330R over a 3" cabinet.
