    This topic discusses the Cabinet MachiningMachining page of the Cabinet Properties.

    See Universal Cabinet Machining topic as universals have different Cabinet Property options.


    Machine this cabinet

    On - When checked, turns on all machining that has been turned off for the cabinet selected.

    Off - When unchecked, no machining will be output for nesting.


    Default Construction

    On - Will use the fixing methods defined on the Mach.General > Const page of the Drawing properties.

    Off - Allows you to change the fixing using a drop list of Construction Methods.




    Cam Ends

    If Ends are screwed on or machined in any other way than 'Cam' on the Mach.General > Const page, then ticking these check boxes will override the default construction method and set to 'Cam'.

    An example of use would be if, instead of affixing an End Panel to the exposed end of a cabinet, a coloured carcass material is used and unsightly screw holes would need to be replaced with a 'Cam'.

    Cam Kickboard to the Part Above

    This option will not be made available (i.e. greyed out) on individual cabinets, if construction is not set to 'Cam' on the Mach.General > Const page and NO machining is carried out for the kickboard parts on each cabinet, unless the Machine this cabinet is checked.

    The defaults set on the Mach.Parts > Kick page are reflected on all kickboards but each cabinet has a selection as to whether the kickboard is cammed to the part above or not.



    Override Adjustable Shelf hole quantity

    The default hole quantity is set on the Mach.Shelf/Mullion > General Shelf page. Tick the check box to override.

    Quantity is the number of shelf holes in each shelf ‘grouping’. If this is set to zero then continuous shelf holes will be used.

    Add Shelf Holes to Mullions

    The default is set on the Mach. Shelf/Mullion > Mullions page which is reflected here and can be changed per cabinet.

    Adds adjustable shelf holes to the mullion when it intersects with an adjustable shelf.



    The defaults are set on the on the Mach.General > Hinge page and can be changed here per cabinet.
