What are the binding axes for?

Binding axes are a handy feature of the EasyKitchen library. Almost every module and element has them. Their purpose is the correct positioning of modules on the working area of the program. In simple words - these "lines" around the modules allow you to quickly and accurately place the cabinet close to the next without the slightest displacement. And this is sometimes very important.

Features of binding axes

The binding axes can be located in different ways, depending on the purpose of the module or element and its features. For most kitchen modules, they are made in the form of lines in the extreme areas of the module's bounding box (front top, front bottom, back top and back bottom). The length of the lines usually coincides with the length of the module. This, by the way, makes it easy to arrange the dimensions. For some modules, mainly for corner ones, the binding axes can be arranged diagonally, repeating the angle that forms the facade. There are also additional anchor lines, in addition to the main ones. For example, for docking rotary modules, they serve for precise positioning of other kitchen modules adjacent to it at 90 degrees. And this is taking into account the presence or absence of a blend. So it's all well thought out :)


The reference point for the modules is usually in the lower left front corner, with the exception of the corner modules, where it is in the lower right front. This means that when pulling a module from the library, the mouse will "hold" it mainly by the lower left front corner. Just at the point of the anchor axis. You just need to bring the module to the lower right front corner (there is also an anchor axis there) of the neighboring module and SketchUp will "magnetize" them. In this case, the positioning will be absolutely accurate. Therefore, for example, kitchen sets are more convenient to design from left to right. This is how the binding axes look on one of the library modules:

This is the BG1 module. It has one more binding axes, in the form of additional lines:

Also, for many additional elements, such as countertops, sides, GOLA profiles, etc., the binding axes can have a different shape, size and position. But this is also verified in such a way as to dock these elements correctly, relative to other modules.

Hiding and showing binding axes

Binding axes are needed only at the design stage. Once all project elements are in place, they can be hidden. This is done through the "Layers" window in the right panel of the "Tray" program. We find in this window the item "Anchor axes" and uncheck it. Everything. The binding axes are hidden. To display them again, you will need to check this box again.
