List and Explanation of Cabinets You Can Place

Small pictures (icons) of cabinets are located in the tool box to the right of the drawing screen in the Place Cabinets Screen. The icons represent the different types (or templates) of cabinets and appliances that you can place on the walls of your rooms but they are not stock cabinets. Each cabinet template when selected, can be given any custom size you choose. You can set the number of shelves to whatever you like and that cabinet will be constructed using the standards that you've selected. In the Edit Elevations Screen you can customize these cabinets even further and learn how to make your own custom library of cabinets.

When selected, another window opens giving you a choice between an angle corner upper or base.

Row 3

Radius Cabinets: represents the radius cabinets. When selected, a choice between the following radius cabinets is given.
 

For Radius End and Peninsula cabinets, you will want to make the width of the cabinet whose end is to be a radius (ex. a standard base cabinet) short the width of the radius. Then, make the radius cabinet the width of the radius and place it at the end of the cabinet whose end is to be a radius. In Initial Values under Radius and Clipped Cabinets, you have the option to include an unfinished end panel or to leave it out. If you include it, you will have a double panel between the cabinet and the radius end.
