Incorporating Glass Panels in Your Cabinet Designs

Are you looking to incorporate glass panels into your cabinet designs but not sure how to go about it?

SketchList 3D allows for the use of glass panels in your cabinet designs by creating a material and setting the transparency percentage. You can choose the color of the glass by selecting the color of the material from the color list. To give you an idea of how glass can be used in your designs, let’s take a look at an example of glass front doors.

Incorporating Glass Panels in Your Assembly

Let’s say we have two different types of glass panels, one blue and the other green, and they are used with transparencies set at 80% and 91%, respectively. The glass panels are inserted as “boards” in the assembly, with the glass serving as the material for that board. Just like any other board, the glass can be contoured or shaped to fit your design needs. You can even shape different pieces of glass to create a stained-glass effect.

Experimenting with Different Design Elements

You can vary the color of the glass, the percentage of transparency, the background color, and the angle from which the 3D rendering is taken to create different looks for your designs. The angle of the 3D rendering affects the look of the design due to the differing shadows cast by the light source. SketchList 3D allows you to experiment with all these design elements until you achieve the desired result.


Expanding Your Design Options

SketchList 3D is not just limited to cabinet design software. You can use the software to create designs using any material, whether it’s glass, metal, plastic, or any other material. With SketchList 3D, you have the freedom to create designs that truly reflect your creativity.


In Summary

If you’re looking to incorporate glass panels into your cabinet designs, SketchList 3D cabinet design software is a great option to consider. With its user-friendly interface and ability to work with various materials, SketchList 3D gives you the freedom to create designs that meet your unique needs.
