Toolbar and Menu Item

There is a toolbar for my plugins called "GKWare CabMaker". There is a submenu under the Plugins menu called "GKWare CabMaker" and menu option under that called "CabMaker". You may consider adding a hot key to the menu item. I have added 'K' as the hot key (short for Kitchen).

When you are happy with all the arguments press then "Enter" key or Click "Create" from the "Cabinets" Tab. The mouse changes to a "Door" cursor. Click where you want to insert the cabinet and drag to tell Cab Maker what direction you want the cabinet to face. Base cabinets default to an elevation of 0 and Upper cabinets default to the height above floor as stated on the "Defaults" Tab.

Documentation is finished. You can access it from the "Help" Tab.

CabMaker has a toolbar with 3 tools. Click on the first one (the cabinet door) The web dialog form contains all your choices. Click OK

The sketchup mouse cursor changes to a door pointer. Click first point where you want the left front of the cabinet to be inserted. Drag the pointer along the angle that you want.
