It is possible to model islands in the plan thanks to the low cabinets.
This is possible on a cabinet by cabinet basis, but we recommend using the stretch method. These elements, thus established, will be more easily dimensioned.
Add an island
Use standard depth or shallow depth low cabinets with the stretch or cabinet-by-cabinet method to model your island.
> STRETCHING: lay a set of low cabinets
> CABINET BY CABINET : lay out low cabinets
- the side finishings, also called the panels, are generated automatically. They can be set in the "style and finishes" tab of the left menu.
- the rear finishings, also called rear panels must be added manually:
From the Menu
--- CABINET BY CABINET
Feel free to use the filters to find your ideal finishing panel. Position it on the back of your island. To set its exact size, click on the "property" icon in its contextual menu. In the dimension tab, you can set its length.
Add a double island
As with single islands, use standard depth or shallow depth low cabinets with the stretch or cabinet-by-cabinet method to model your island.
Tip: if you want the same composition on both sides of your island, it is convenient to use the "duplicate" function on your first set of cabonets.
Stretch your worktop
- stretching of small dimensions (<30cm)
For a shallow stretching (30cm max), select the low cabinet set, click on the "properties" icon and in the "worktop" tab, you can create a worktop overhang.
This overhang can be set numerically from the menu, or in 3D thanks to the stretching handles that have appeared.
- Stretching of bigger dimension (>30cm)
For a stretch of bigger depth, you have to add a worktop from the catalog
From the menu
--- --- CABINET BY CABINET
Once selected, place your worktop in the plan.
You will be able to adapt its size, by clicking on the "property" icon of its contextual menu: the dimensions can be set numerically from the "dimensions" menu, or in 3D thanks to the stretching handles that have appeared.
You can adapt its position by clicking on the "property" icon of its contextual menu: the dimensions can be set numerically from the "position" menu, or directly in the plan by moving it in 2D or using the vertical movement handle in 3D.
Attention: think of adding feet to support your work plan.
(feature under development: for the moment, we advise you to use the customizable shapes in the FURNISH menu)
Info : distances of use
Rules of usage will review your project and validate or not the distances you place between your set of base units.
It is necessary to have 90cm between 2 low cabinets to be able to open easily your doors and drawers.
A distance of 120cm is ideal to be able to use your kitchen with several people and move around easily.
Note: these rules only apply to set of cabinets. (not yet on isolated cabinets)
