Cabinet Parameters – Segments

Height segment

A cabinet consists of up to five superimposed segments. The height indicated here always refers to the middle of the intermediate floors. In the first segment at the bottom of the lower floor and at the top of the last segment on the top edge of the upper floor. The lid and base heights contributing to the total height are entered in a separate field.

Simple copying segments

By entering a negative integer, an underlying segment can be copied completely. For example, if you want to copy the values from the Lower segment in segment Center, which is two segments below, you enter in the field Height – 2 .

Expand segment height to total height

Entering a negative measure increases or decreases the height of the segment by the missing value. For example, if you enter the value – 800mm in the height field of the middle down segment for a cabinet with a total height of 740mm ( 600mm in the bottom segment, 140mm in the middle bottom segment), this is extended by 60mm to 200mm.

Grip rotation and positions in the segment

The field consists of two sections.

  1. A single value for the degree of rotation of the handle
  2. Multiple values for the position of the handle on a front within a vertical subdivision. Superimposed fronts of a segment (horizontal subdivision) have the same position.

The value for a grip position consists of two characters for the horizontal and vertical position on the front:

  1. Horizontal positions: Links, Rechts, Mitte and 2 for a double-sided handle left and right
  2. Vertical positions: Unten, Mitte, Oen
  3. the n sign does not draw a handle at the position

Example: U Handle Red° Pos LRM2:OMU/N90 RO N LO

The handle is rotated by 90°. The positions for a triple vertical subdivision are from left to right: Top Right, No Handle, and Top Left

Subdivision of a segment

The field consists of three consecutive values

  1. Vertical division: number of parts next to each other
  2. Horizontal division: Number of parts on top of each other (no compartments!)
  3. Middle side (V) or intermediate floor (H) continuous

The vertical division determines the number of compartments separated by center sides. It is irrelevant whether the middle side is also drawn at the position or not. See center side visible field.

The horizontal division distinguishes further intermediate floors. This is primarily intended for further drawers on top of each other in a segment and overlaps with the shelves.

If middle sides and intermediate bottoms exist within a segment, the third parameter indicates which of the two is drawn at the intersection points.

Example: Vertical Horizontal 5 2 V Subdivision

The segment receives five parts next to each other and thus four center sides, as well as two parts on top of each other and thus an intermediate floor. The intermediate floor bumps into the middle sides.

Door stop direction and visibility of the center side

The field is composed of alternating consecutive values for the direction of a door within a segment followed by the visibility of the center side.

Four options are conceivable for the position of the door stop, i.e. the door hinges:

PositionSignRepresented as
LeftL, l, >>
RightR, r,<
AboveO, o,O
BelowU, uU

The visibility or formation of the middle side is regulated here by a control mark:

TrainingSignRepresented as
Invisiblen, x, 0
Interiori, !!
Normalj, y, 1|

Example: Stop L/R/O/U MitSei J/N: r j l n o

This sequence of signs means that the first door is struck from the left on the right side. Then a middle side is drawn. The middle door is attached to this center side on the left. The next middle side is missing and the segment ends with a flap hinged at the top.

For a better clarification of the inputs, the following are displayed: Stop L/R/O/U MitSei J/N: • O

Summarizing adjacent fronts

The inner center side is a special case for cross-center fronts. Here, two fronts from adjacent parts can be combined. This summary only takes place with internal (!) or invisible (•) middle sides and also only if the direction of the otherwise adjacent doors would be the same. Stop L/R/O/U MitSei J/N: < ! < |

This sequence of characters means a division of the segment into three parts. The first and second parts are separated by an internal central side. Because the direction of attack in these two parts is on the left, the front is combined there and struck on the left (i.e. on the left side of the body).

The third part is then separated from the first two by a normal middle side and thus a separate door is drawn there, which is also struck on the left.

The spacing of the inner middle sides can be set segment by segment in the distance center side to front.

Spacing of the middle sides

The field allows the manual division of the middle sides over the cabinet width of a segment. There are two possibilities:

  • Equally wide shelves (standard). The available width of all not fixed middle sides is divided so that the compartments have the same clear width.
  • Equally wide fronts. Takes effect as soon as the sign = is entered in the field. The available width is evenly distributed taking into account the front joints, so that the fronts become the same width.

Missing information is calculated evenly distributed to the remaining width.

Example of the same fronts: MS clear width (=front/compartment)200 = = 200

This sequence of characters for a four-part vertical subdivision of a Semgent means:

  • The distance between the left body side and the center of the first center side is 200mm – as well as the distance between the center of the last center side and the right body side
  • The middle side in between is evenly distributed, so that the front width of the second and third doors is the same. With equally distributed front widths, different front joints left, right and vertical are taken into account.
  • The number of middle pages is determined by the Subdivision field

Example of the same compartments: MS clear width (=front/compartment)200 200 0 0

Since the specification of 0 is counted as a character for the same tray widths, these inputs are then displayed as follows: MS light width (=front/tray)200 200 – –

This sequence of characters for a four-part vertical subdivision of a semgent then means:

  • The distance between the left body side and the center of the first center side and then to the center of the second center side is 200mm each
  • The following central side is evenly distributed, so that the light of the second and third doors is the same. Different thicknesses of the pages and middle pages are taken into account.
  • The number of middle pages is determined by the Subdivision field

Classification of shelves

Specifies the number of shelves. A grid (e.g. 32mm) can be used, which is indicated by the character *. The reference point of the grid is the lower edge of the segment floor, which can be an intermediate floor or the lower floor.

Example: Subjects Number Of Abst. >Unten: 2*32

Creates two shelves evenly distributed and moves them to the nearest point of the 32mm grid.

The calculated values are appended to the field Compartments Number Of Abst. >Unten: 2*32 192 384

The first shelf is 192mm, the second 384mm high above the segment floor.

These dimensions indicate the difference in height between the lower edge of the floor of the current segment and the shelf. The heights can also be set manually. Once a grid has been defined, the heights entered are aligned and adjusted accordingly. If no grid is desired, the * operator can be omitted. It is then supplemented in the form 2*0.
