【Advanced】Display Panel Modeling


An additional Panel added to solve the problem of different materials used for cabinet and door panel.

Take an 18mm side panel display Panel as a case study for modeling.

I.Creation Location

Open the cabinet to which you want to add door panels.

Custom Furniture Customization—Create Asset—Parametric Model Library— New—

II.Setting Parameters

2.1 Custom Variable Settings

Width (W) - Represents the size of the model Panel in the X-axis direction, with value type set as optional (e.g., optional 18, current value is 18).

Depth (D) - Represents the size of the model in the Y-axis direction, with value type set as a range (e.g., range 150-1200, current value is 500).

Height (H) - Represents the size of the closure Panel in the Z-axis direction, with value type set as a range (e.g., range 300-2400, current value is 900).

Material does not need modification and represents the model using default material. When used in the tool, the display Panel defaults to using the door panel material and hides the built-in cabinet material.

III.Calling the Submodel

Call the flat panel door submodel from the Element Library or internal Element Library, for example, calling an 18mm flat panel door.

IV.Setting Physical and Other Attributes of the Panel

Physical Attributes: Width - #D, Depth - #18, Height - #H,

Position X - 18, Rotation Z - (-90)

Other Attributes: Door Opening Direction - None

V.Testing the Model

Enter values within the range of parameters H and D and observe if the model changes consistently with the input values. If they match, it indicates that the model is correct.

VI.Output Attribute Settings

Output Width: (#H - size in the direction of the grain)

Output Depth: (#D - size in the direction perpendicular to the grain)

Output Height: (Panel Thickness) 18

VII.Saving to the Library

Click on the file in the upper right corner and select Save. Choose the subdirectory for saving, give it a name, and click Save.

In the corresponding category of the page, find the model, select it, and click initialize to wait for the model rendering to complete.
