    Default Cabinet Face Multiple action needed

    Alright, need some help here. Seems I'm almost there but not quite. The part I'm having trouble with is the interior lines. If you look at the progression of size in the blocks as they get bigger, the red horizontal lines get further from middle in proportion to the size. Also, the swing lines (the redlines going from corner to mid to corner) need to converge at the mid point no matter what size it hits. I also realize I'll need a flip grip, but haven't gotten to that point so input on that would be appreciated too. Or would a Visibility paramater be the way to go? The text needs to change with the size too.

    How do I make the block stretch from a common point (the upper left corner) and increase in size?

    I attached a pic of a group of blocks and the one block I've gotten to work part ways so far.

    steve, have you looked in the sharing thread? i have a wall cab in there, but the only difference for you would be that you want the shelf lines moved vertically by thirds (distance multiplier of actions, changed in the properties dialog box), not using the convoluted wipeouts i use.
    Sometimes, i get lost in my own thoughts and need to ask directions to find my way back.

    What thread is llist?

    I did find the cabinet post you referred me to. Thanks, I needed to be lazy for once and a newb and not search first - and again, I'll check it out on Monday.

    I think he is referring to this "llist".
    If you have a technical question, please find the appropriate forum and ask it there.
    You will get a quicker response from your fellow AUGI members than if you sent it to me via a PM or email.

    Sorry, Mike, I don't think either one of those links will answer his rhetorical question.
