Create a default Tab Pull option in Toolbox – ex: Mockett DP3

Create a default Tab Pull option in Toolbox – ex: Mockett DP3

I have spent the time creating and setting up Tab pulls for our use but there are a number of things that have to be "tricked" in the system to get them to work correctly.  It would be nice if the basics for these were setup and the formulas adjusted to make them work.

 

Things I have found or had to change:

  • Pull location from drawer front top has to be set as .001 because if you use “0” it places the pull at the center of the front. 
  • Pull distance from top/bottom of door edges must be set to zero.
  • The rotation of the pulls has to be adjusted based on base-vs-wall cabinet as well as left-vs-right hinged doors.  This is because the stock pulls are built as symmetrical when a tab pull isn’t if you want it oriented correctly in 3D.
  • This really matter for the machining.
