Cabinet Level Attributes

Toggle 'Number Openings' to True on any cabinet to expose our CAD

Tip: After placing sub-assemblies in the host assembly, you can toggle the numbers back off.

  • The numbers sit in front of doors, so are visible in elevations when activated

Follow these steps to bring a Sub-Assembly into the Host-Assembly

  1. Number the openings in the host-assembly
  2. Assembly Level > Face View > Objects
  3. Bring in your sub-assembly
  4. Set Case Opening number (See Tip)
  5. After re-build the sub-assembly is sized and positioned for you > Re-select the sub-assembly
  6. Review the sub-assembly Attributes

Tip: Set the case opening number twice - That's the fastest way to get the re-build in CV

Well that's all there is to it! Enjoy the time you've just saved...
