Cabinet extension

Recommended Posts

I am trying to put a wall cabinet near a corner (about 2-3 inches from the edge wall) but it keeps automatically extending the cabinet face to fill the gap between the cabinet and the side wall (see attached). Is there anyway to turn of the feature where cabinets automatically connect to other cabinets and walls near them?

I checked in HD Pro, Architectural and Suite and I found no specific settings to control that automatic behavior. In Chief Architect X9 Premier I did find a setting to control that behavior but it was left out of Home Designer titles I am sorry to say. You might try using a skinny spacer cabinet and then set the 2" or 3" wide spacer cabinet's material settings to "opening no material" (found in the Library Browser - Materials under the "Misc. Materials" category) making the cabinet "there" but "Invisible". I do not know if that will work but it is something you can try.

Move the cabinet away from the wall about 5" and then move it back slowly.

putting a open invisible cabinet next to it visually did the trick, but it should be a feature you can disable. work-arounds like this show weaknesses in programs.
