I found an error in the insertion point for full and partial frames. Fixed

Tall cabinet tops can have 3 modifiers:
1) Default(no change)
2) Treat As Base (Tall cabinet takes on top style used for base cabinets)
3) Treat As Upper (Top and top edge of sides take on the same finish as the top of upper cabinets)

Tall - Treat as Upper.

Tall - Treat as Base. Top section is turned off (height = 0), Cabinet Height is 768 and Mid Section is 640 leaving 128 mm for a bottom drawer. You set the number of drawers. I used mid section because you can adjust the position of the handle.

Cab Maker can now produce doors and drawer fronts with or without frames.

Treats Doors and Frames like any other cabinet. Reports include doors and frames.
Batch editing works with these as well as regular editing.

Framleess overlay
Set Cabinet Depth = 0

Inset Full Frame

Working on 2.0.73

Anyone interested in a sliding door option for inset doors.
I'm guessing we would need an overlap parameter and the sliding door option would require a pair of doors.

You still can - however you have to turn it on.
From the Sketchup menu choose
Extensions \ GKWare CabMaker 2 \ Cab Maker 2 - Edit Config
Set Animate Doors to true.

Any new cabinets or edited cabinets will now have the proper attributes.

I had to do it this way because the Extension Warehouse kept failing CabMaker during automatic testing. Pretty crazy - because Dynamic Components would also fail (if they let it)

Hi Gary --

I just downloaded the CabMaker trial and was about to download the CutMaster trial, then saw it was Windows only... I don't suppose that you have any plans to port it to MacOS?

I realize that it the effort/reward ratio may make it a losing proposition... but no harm in asking :)

Sorry Doug -

I do have a C++ compiler that supports both Mac and Windows and I started porting my code over but there were just too many bugs in the compiler. So I went back to Windows only.

I do have a number of Mac users that use bootcamp or parallels or vmware.

I am now considering working on using doors as finished panels. The only problems that I see are with extra wide back panels for narrow islands and peninsulas.

Anyone care to comment on how they would like to see this done?

OK. Thanks for the quick reply Gary.

At the moment I don't have a direct need for CutMaster... but if it becomes must, then BootCamp here we come!

Adding the ability to adjust the height of the middle rail. This way you can have the middle rail for tall doors line up with your regular doors.

Mid doors.png


I'm also adding the ability to override the placement of and extruded handle. So you can set up a top drawer and have the handle at the bottom and have the handle for the rest of your drawers on the top.
