    Timber Panelling
    In This Topic

    The Timber Panelling cabinet allows profiled or rectangular slats to be repeated along the edge of a customisable shape of up to 20 points.

    There is also a regular 'Panelling' cabinet that behaves in the same way, but does not include any timber slats.

    The Panelling cabinets are for display only and do not provide any machining components.

    These cabinets may initially be missing from your CM-Cabinets catalog if you installed CabMaster prior to V11.100.

    In order to add these cabinets to the catalog, see the following help article: Adding missing cabinets to catalog

    Dimensions

    The overall sizes of the timber panelling cabinet.

    Width

    Displays the overall width of the panelling cabinet.

    Height

    The height from the floor to the top of the panelling cabinet.

    Depth

    Displays the overall depth of the panelling cabinet.

    Kickboard

    A kickboard can be added to the timber panelling cabinet for situations where it does not extend all the way to the floor. This is visual only and does not get output for machining.

    Kickboard Height

    The height of the kickboard.

    Include Kickboard

    Turns the kickboard on or off.

    Kickboard Recess

    The distance from the back of the panelling to the front of the kickboard.

    Bottom

    The bottom is a carcass panel that fills in the bottom area of the timber panelling cabinet. This is visual only and does not get output for machining.

    Include Bottom

    Turns the bottom on or off.

    Backing Panel

    The Backing Panels are the vertical parts that sit behind the timber panelling. These are visual only and do not get output for machining.

    Include Backing

    Turns the backing panels on or off.

    Height Off Floor

    The distance from the floor to the bottom of the timber panelling cabinet. This option is only available when the kickboard is disabled.

    Insertion Point

    The distance from the floor to the bottom of the timber panelling cabinet. This option is only available when the kickboard is disabled.
     Points

    Points

    The points group box contains all the controls for adjusting the shape of the timber panelling cabinet. The panelling cabinet is defined by a series of points, which are joined together to form the overall shape.

    X

    The x (left/right) coordinate for the current point.

    Y

    The y (front/back) coordinate for the current point.

    Radius

    The radius of the arc from the current point to the next point.

    Remove Point

    Deletes the current point.

    Add Point

    Adds an extra point to the shape (up to a max of 20).

    Export to Polyshape

    Copies the points to the clipboard, so they can be imported into the polyshape.

    Point Labels

    Show point labels

    Adds a number label for each point to the plan view to help identify which point is which.

    Label Offset

    The distance between each point and its corresponding label on the plan view

    Label Offset

    Right (+ve)  /  Left (-ve)

    Moves the cabinet label left or right. A positive number will move it right and a negative number will move it left.

    Back (+ve)  /  Forward (-ve)

    Moves the cabinet label backward or forward. A positive number will move it backward and a negative number will move it forward.

    Display Cabinet Height

    Shows the cabinet height on plan. (The matching option must be turned on in the display area of the drawing properties as well).
     Slats
     Slat Configuration

      Timber PanellingTimber PanellingTimber Panelling

    Profile

    Slat Type

    Can be set to either Profiled or Rectangle. Setting the slat type to...
    • Profiled will use the selected slat profile for the slats.
    • Rectangle will just use regular rectangle panels with no profile.

    Profile Table

    The profile collection to use. Each profile table contains individual profiles within it that can then be selected. 
    (Only available when the slat type is set to Profiled).

    Profile

    The profile to use for the slats. 
    (Only available when the slat type is set to Profiled).

    Edit Profiles

    Opens an form-editor window where you can edit/add profiles in the selected profile table.
    (Only available when the slat type is set to Profiled).

    Slats

    The slats are the panels that are repeated along each edge of the timber panelling cabinet.

    They can have two different configurations, depending on whether the edge they are being applied to is curved or straight.

    Curved Edges

    The settings under this heading apply to any slats on the curved edges of the timber panelling shape.

    Straight Edges

    The settings under this heading apply to any slats on the Straight edges of the timber panelling shape.

    Slat Width

    The width of each individual slat.
    (Only editable when using Rectangle slats. Profiled slats will read directly from the profile's configuration in the table).

    Slat Depth

    The depth of each individual slat. 
    (Only editable when using Rectangle slats. Profiled slats will read directly from the profile's configuration in the table).

    Spacing

    The distance between each slat.

    Space Evenly

    Overrides the spacing of the slats to fit as can fit on each edge without extending past the end of the edge.
    Using this method treats the Spacing as a minimum distance, instead of an exact value. The actual spacing will be different per edge.                        

    Texture

    The texture groupbox shows the image being used for the 3d view of the slats, and allows it to be adjusted.

    The filepath for the image is relative to the Bitmap folder of the CabMaster install filepaths.

    Browse Image

    Clicking this button will open a file browse window, where a new image can be selected for the slats.
     Enables

    The enables page contains controls for turning certain edges or slats on or off.

    Trim Edges

    Remove Final Slat from the following edges

    Ticking any of the checkboxes under this heading will remove slat at the end of the corresponding edge of the timber panelling shape.
    This is mainly used when the Space Evenly option is disabled, since the last slat on some edges may extend past the edge of the shape when the spacing does not fit perfectly along that edge. A checkbox will automatically appear for each edge of the shape.

     

    Seal Edges

    Seal the following edges

    The checkboxes under this heading control whether an edge is sealed or not.
    When it is unticked, the corresponding edge will have its slats, backing panel, and kickboard removed.

     Report

    Although the Timber Panelling cabinets do not provide any machinable parts, there is an accompanying report which will tell you the size of each backing panel, as well as some more detailed information about the slats themselves.

    The report is called Timber Cladding.rdl and is located in the Assembly Reports folder.

    Below is a sample output of the report:
