Microvellum Foundation Library Release Notes | Build 23.1114

Microvellum Foundation Library Release Notes | Build 23.1114

Special Note #1: Highly recommend updating Toolbox to build 23.1.1010 or newer as this library update zip includes new features only available to users running this TB version (or newer). Previous versions will not import categorized materials now included with the update.

Special Note #2:  This update includes a potential Breaking Change involving drawer runners for wooden drawers. This will only affect users who are updating vs installing a new library. The factory LookUpTable “LookUpTableSystemDrawerSlide” has been refactored to better accommodate undermount drawer runners. This also addresses issues when users are using varying material thicknesses for their drawers such as 12mm, 16mm, and 18mm. Any custom wood drawer subassemblies OR current existing projects will need their wood drawers updated to avoid errors. Any customizations users have made to this table will need to be restored.  Check under the Modifications section for more information on the new global variable created to circumventing this change. 

Additions

  1. Added additional King Slide SIMLEAD Wood Drawer System hardware. 32 new Wood Drawer Slide Options have been added.
  1. Added new EZ Level cabinet leveling hardware to the Notched Toe Kick subassemblies. New hardware materials added for machining and reporting.
  1. “Post Laminate” option has been added to the Finished Faces subassembly. There are options to add it to the front and/or the back of the panel.
  1. To help with report filtering, we have added the bay numbers to Component Inserts’ subassembly comments in all starter products with bay openings (like the Component Doors).
  1. Added global "Drawer Stretcher Type" to control drawer stretcher types (Stretcher or Dust Panel).
  1. Wood drawers now have their own Hardware Array prompts, allowing a different hardware selection for the cabinet parts.
  1. Added 3D_BASE MOLDING layer to shipping drawing template (dwt). Assigned this to base molding parts in the library.
  1. Added global “Add 3D Grain Indicator” to control the 3D Grain Indicator option.
  1. Added Integral Toe Kick Hardware/Cutparts option. Added six new global variables to control:
    1. “Attached Toe Kick Sinks”
    2. “Attached Kick Height”
    3. “Attached Kick Cleat Deduct Value Single Door”
    4. “Attached Kick Cleat Deduct Value Double Door”
    5. “Attached Kick Deduct Value Single Door”
    6. “Attached Kick Deduct Value Double Door”

  1. Added Richelieu Atmos aiR Lift-Up system.
  1. Added Finista Drawer system (minus the unavailable 3D graphics).
  1. Added an additional machine token to all handle hardware that can drill a hole into a drawer sub front (not available with library update). New global variable added “Drill Sub Front Handle Holes”.
  1. Added two new global variables to control the name of the 2D Instructions subassemblies. You can set this up with your company name, preventing it from being overwritten during library updates. 
    1. “Drawing 2D Instruction Name”
    2. “Drawing 2D Corner Instruction Name”
  1. Added new functionality in the factory LookUpTable “LookUpTableSystemDrawerSlide” to better accommodate when some drawers require front and back notches (column 8 and 12).
  1. Added Master Double Sided Cabinet FF product.

Modifications

  1. Note for updating users only: To prevent issues with existing projects, we have added a global variable called “Use Legacy Wood Drawers” that can toggle between the legacy behavior and the updated behavior. If your project contains older versioned wood drawers, this variable can be selected to prevent issues. If you are running updated v23.1114 wood drawers and want the new functionality, uncheck this global. 
  1. The factory LookUpTable “LookUpTableSystemDrawerSlide” has been refactored to better accommodate undermount drawer runners. This also addresses issues when users are using varying material thicknesses for their drawers such as 12mm, 16mm, and 18mm. Any custom wood drawer subassemblies OR current existing projects will need their wood drawers updated to avoid errors. Any customizations users have made to this table will need to be restored. See the Note for updating users only modification above or Special Note #2 above for more information.
  1. Updated the sample kitchen island product group that ships with new library installs. We have also added some bar stools.
  1. Base 2 Drawer Waste Bin product is now linked to the global "G!Default_Double_Waste_Bin_Pullout" to set an appropriate default waste bin.
  1. Cabinet carcass front edging on all left and right sides have been updated to account for finished ends. If a cabinet has a finished end, that side will reference “E!Open_Carcase_Edge” pointer instead of “E!Carcase_Edges”.
  1. “Shelf Qty” prompt control type for both adjustable and fixed shelves has been changed back to a 5 (visible). These prompts are sometimes controlled by the parent product they come in with (prompt value feature). So, keep this in mind when trying to control the shelf quantity from the subassembly prompts UI.

Resolutions General

  1. Resolved issues with the Richelieu 908 drawer system graphics. 
  1. Resolved issues with Any Angle cabinets when using dado construction.
  1. Resolved an issue with Horizontal Designer Cabinets when selecting Top Drawer option within the bays.
  1. Resolved an issue with sink cut-outs into countertops for Imperial users.
  1. Resolved an issue with Component Drawer subassembly when placed within cabinets with vertical rails that caused the drawer locations to be incorrect. In doing this, we have made the “Vertical Rail” prompt visible in the Component Drawers subassembly. This can now be turned off when inserting drawers into a product that has a vertical rail. We have added a formula that will now only deduct the vertical front rail width when there is no top facia.
  1. Resolved an issue when selecting Cabinet Notch Center with Wood Drawers.
  1. “G!Dado_Notch_Distance_to_Rear_Edge” global variable has been added to all Any Angle Cabinets.
  1. Resolved issue when selecting Finished End option with cabinets containing a Wrapped Batten. Added IF statement to the screw machine tokens on the wrapped battens so they will turn off when attaching to a finished end. We have also changed the machine point from 7M to 2M.
  1. Resolved issue when using a cabinet filler and applied end within the Tall Fridge Cabinet. Updated the height and depth of the fillers so that they will be full height when you have an applied end.
  1. Resolved issue with fillers in Tall Fridge Cabinet and Master Enclosed Appliance Cabinet. Updated so that the fillers are at the correct height and size. Also updated the filler subassemblies to not include the bottom reveal when the cabinet has a full inset door. Added a prompt value "Product_Type;Upper" to the fillers in the product so they will look at upper filler properties.
  1. Resolved issue with Lock Strike Plates at Drawers. The rotation for the strike was not taking into account the Left and Right of Pull position options.
  1. Resolved issue with secondary lock origins at Door Drawer Cabinets. These will now associate to the drawer stretcher.
  1. Certain Pullout Bin systems have “Left/Right mounting Position” options and were not displaying the prompt option. This has been corrected.
  1. For thin backs, updated dado machine tokens to match consistency with other global variables. Instead of referencing “G!Dado_Clearance”, they now reference “G!Rebate_Clearance”.
  1. Resolved a dado construction issue inside Extruded Die Wall w studs.
  1. Resolved issue with wire chase holes and cutouts inside the Straight Die Wall.
  1. Resolved issue with extending sides to the floor for upper cabinets. They will now reference the HeightAboveFloor value to get the correct size.
  1. All cabinet products updated so that when using the Cabinet Void feature, the overlay tops and bottoms no longer run to the wall.
  1. Resolved issue with the Door and Drawer Front Fabrication Report. Added missing headers and improved some formatting items for better consistency between the different reports.
  1. Resolved/Improved Rear Cutout Dowel spacing issues for all drawer box subassemblies.
  1. Resolved lock position issue when Stretcher material was a different thickness than the top material. The value in the prompt “Door_Top_Edge_to_Top_Panel” has been updated to refer to the correct thickness depending on if you use rails or full top.
  1. Resolved inaccuracies with certain Undermount Drawer Slide drilling Locations.
  1. Resolved an issue when using shadowlines and the global variable “Drawer Box Fixed Location”.
