I drew a model of a cabinet I’d like to build and it has 20 drawers. Some of the drawers are different heights and some are different widths. I thought I was being productive by drawing one drawer box and making it a component for resizing. I made unique components for the different sizes and then scaled the original to fit within the opening I needed. It went well and was relativity quick, but when I ran the cut list plugin, I noticed that all the parts were the same size as the original drawer box…not what I need for a successful cut list. I now know that scaling a component doesn’t change other instances but what is the best process solution to salvage the work I’ve already done?
What’s the proper approach to this problem?
I draw each piece of the cabinet and drawers as if I were building it so I get accurate cut lists to take to the shop.
