I'm guessing that you have slab doors and have set the stile width to 0


yes, that was it. I did not think to check stile options as I was using plain doors.
thank you

Hello everyone, and happy new year.

Double question here:

- I often wanted to define a different thickness to finished panels and fillers. is it possible?

- [SOLVED, see below] here I have a weird result. I actually have 2 different thickness, I don't know why, and it is exactly the opposite of what I want :)

I'd like a finished panel of 30mm and a filler of 19 so it would be flush with the door. Is it a bug or is it me?

and maybe this will help to diagnose the problem: weirdly enough, if I change the door material for 40, for example, i get this!

door style : "metric plain door"
door shape : "plain panel"

OK I got the answer to my problem but I keep this post for reference for people having the same issue:
my finished panel (in cabinet 2 tab) "door panel" option was defined as "metric plain door" which seemed fine to me. I just switched it to "--" which solved the issue.

I still would like to change my filler thickness though.

Email me directly if you wish to discuss your needs. There are many permutations and combinations when you want something a bit different than the majority.

Here is an example using a slab door for the finished panel and setting the thickness of the finished to a different thickness for the filler.

If you just go through the forum for these types of questions then I wait for others to respond. If you email me directly your request will receive higher priority.

Hello Garry,

I post this kind of question on the forum because I think I may not be the only one with this question and I think it's good for documentation purposes as it is impossible to write a manual with all the questions that every users will ever ask.

I don't mind waiting a bit for the answer (and it has never been very long).

For the record I really think we should have a subforum somewhere for your plugin. So questions can be sorted in some way, instead of being all in a 18 pages topic.

Here is the same cabinet project but with the Cabinet Priority Optimizer turned off. You do save 1 sheet of material - but look at what happens.

Cabinet 1 can be assembled after the 25th sheet is processed.
Cabinet 2 can be assembled after the 30th sheet is processed.
Cabinet 3 can be assembled after the 29th sheet is processed.
Cabinet 4 can be assembled after the 12th sheet is processed.

The crazy part is that you have to wait until the 30th sheet is processed before you can assemble 17 cabinets. Just look at the second last line.

Just wanted to thank Garry for some of the recent updates! Have wanted to for some time and just did not get around to it, apologies for not doing so sooner!

Not sure when it happened but always had to correct for drawer height in CutMaster in CabMaker drawers tab if they were to sit on drawer bottoms and noticed that no longer needs to be corrected for. Also In CutMaster had to add in Part Number as part of Part Name so it would show on the cutting layout diagram to make for easier location of parts in part listing when cutting pieces on table saw. Part number became part of the Layout display and saves me lots of time adding this to cabinet name.

Garry has always been great at assisting with any questions and I find he responds in very short order.

Thanks Garry!

Would love to have Sliding doors!

Have had projects in the past with sliding by-pass cabinet doors and currently working on one right now as well using CRL Laurence or Richelieu Hardware.
