Why are indents needed?

Most of the modules, elements and components in the EasyKitchen library have indents from the outer dimension to the inner components. These indents are needed and have different purposes:


  • The presence of indents in the modules allows you to place facades and fittings in them;
  • Indents allow you to create a technical gap at the back, behind the bottom row of kitchen cabinets;
  • Component offsets allow you to create modules without deformation of the geometry and displacement of parts;
  • Indents make it possible to retreat from either side the desired distance to the module. Sometimes this is convenient;
  • Indents make it possible to see the binding axes of modules and library elements.

How to work with indents correctly?

Starting with the 4th version of the EasyKitchen library, working with indents has been greatly simplified, because. a separate parameter has appeared that sets the strict depth of the hull. Now only the indentation is important in front (the front and the handle are located there) and below (there are legs at the lower cabinets). For the front and handle, we left a 100mm front offset. For the legs, the default is also 100mm, and there is a link to the "Height of the legs" parameter. Those. it is better to edit the height of the legs in the "Height of the legs" parameter, so as not to erase the formula in the indent attribute from below.


In addition, in some corner and rotary modules, indents can be set to the left or right, for correct positioning. Typically, these options are marked with an asterisk (*). This means that it contains some formula for controlling this indentation, and if you drive your own value into this parameter, the formula will be overwritten. There is nothing to worry about, because you can always cancel the action or take new modules from the library.

All other indentation parameters can be edited as you like.

Indents in other elements of the library

There are also indents in other elements of the EasyKitchen library. They are designed for ease of positioning. For example, profile modules for backlighting have a front indent. At a distance of 160mm from the center of the profile, there are binding axes, with which it is very convenient to position the profile directly in the center of the wall cabinets. It is especially convenient to get into the groove for the mortise profile in this way. Are you used to putting the profile off-center? Change the padding at the back to the one you want, save the component with the right mouse button and continue working without having to go into the component parameters every time.

The same story with countertops, sides and other integral attributes of kitchen furniture. There, the indents are set up so that everything immediately falls into the right places.
