Followed video on sink cutouts for cabinet - Having trouble

Recommended Posts

Trying to cut hole in countertop and cabinet top to place sink.

Subtract solids works fine for cutting hole in countertop.

Can't seem to select cabinet top along with countertop.

Does not cut hole through top in cabinet no matter what size extrude I use

Did ungroup to cabinet.

Any ideas?

In VW 2011 there is an option to make a base cabinet a sink front which has nothing on its top (if you turn off its countertop) so if you do cut a countertop there is nothing else to interfere with the sink's bowl visually.

VW 2011 also has a countertop PIO which as an option will place an oval or circular opening for a sink as part of its object.

I can't remember if 2008 has the same features. What you are doing seems logical as a workaround if it doesn't.

VW 2008 has a countertop PIO as well.

The issue is not the countertop, it is the top of the cabinet that will not cut out.

Will keep trying.

Thank you for the information.

The base cabinet needs to be a sink front type or it will not work.

Strange though, in the real world, typically the only base cabinets that have a top are ones for lazy susan or some form of carousel or pull-out.

That is why I did not give it a 2nd though about checking for a sink front cabinet.

Guess I am too used to the other software I use.
