Cabinet design software – detailed corners with contours

Cabinet design software – mitered corners and contours

A user emailed me about a problem using our cabinet design software in his project. It’s a great example of clear communication – to the point with a screen shot to show the issue.  I sent back a solution and will now make a video to discuss it.

Two boards meet in the corner and both boards have a rounded over contour on top and a miter on the ends.  He ran into a limitation in SketchList 3D where cutting a hole can’t overlap other holes.  This applies to joinery and contours as well.

You see the gap in the top of the corner.  I ‘cut’ a corner piece with a round over contour going both ways and stuck it in the gap.

Watch the video.  It contains some cool tips and tricks.  Near the end of the videos I make good use of blue dots to connect things.

Thank you for your time.  If you have any questions or comments level them below.
