Box Auto Plugin
« on: January 31, 2016, 21:22:22 pm »
Hello,

This plugin is a collaborative job with speedjf37, initially based on the old "doll house" script from Andy (crenelated boxes)

It is intended to simplify the creation of various crenelated boxes.

David,
Nice plugin  ;D I like the comments layer.
I see there was mention of dégagements des angles, it looks like you have to add a profile MOP yourself and remember to set that. What about if the plugin added a profile MOP ?

Nice work!
I have been thinking about something similar, for kitchen cabinet drawer bodies.
For this application, the drawer sides would be 3/4" solid wood, or plywood with edge banding on the top edge.
The bottom would be 1/4" or 3/8" plywood captured in a groove.
The box joints would be a "hidden box joint" so the joint is not visible from the sides, they would be covered by the drawer front.
This is accomplished by making a partial-depth cut on the side pieces, and a corresponding notch height on the front/back pieces.
Other useful features would be holes for the drawer pull, and notches in the back for blum bottom-mount drawer slides.
Any interest in adding this to the plugin?  I can help out with the details.
Cheers - BillT

David,
thank you for the photoshop file. I will finish the translation at weekend.

As I've already written I want to put subdivisions on the wishlist. ::)

Maybe JF will hear you ;) (I returned him the source code after I've added the translation code)

Hello

a new version is available (1008) that fix some bugs in reduced front boxes and also position of the lines for the sliding cover (too much clearance)

JF,
Are you joking? (I hope!)  "Hidden box joints" are a very common assembly method, and not at all "too specific" if included in a routine designed to make box joints!
