Is there a way to make double sided upper cabinets without putting two 6" deep wall cabinets back-to-back?, OR is there a way to remove the backs?

My problem is that I'm designing a kitchen remod with an adjacent butler pantry with cabinets separating them.  The door panels on both sides will be glass. I want the 3-D views to display such that one can see through the cabinets and it will allow natural light to flow between the two rooms.

Sorry if this has already been covered... I didn't find anything through Search.

Thanks!

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

 

You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.

 

Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.

 

And, turn on signature display too.

Not hard to do, but a little bit time consuming.
Copy/Paste Hold Position is your friend.


You will need to make 3 custom cabinets, OR make one cabinet and then copy/paste/resize each piece for the other 2 cabinets.


Use cabinet partitions or soffits for the sides.  Use cabinet shelves or soffits for bottom, shelving and top (they both allow molding to be added).


When your boxes are assembled, get the appropriate cabinet door (basic arched recessed panel?) from the library.  Size it and place it.  Change the recessed panel to glass.
Get hinges and knobs from the library. Manually place them and resize them.


When you have all 3 cabinets made, you might want to select each piece (per cabinet) and block each unit.  This is usually easier to do in the 3d view.
