Microvellum Foundation Library Release Notes | Build 24.0419

Microvellum Foundation Library Release Notes | Build 24.0419

Additions 

  1. Added the new Blum SPACE STEP system. This can be activated within the “Toe Kick Assembly” construction option prompt in certain base & tall cabinet products. 
  2. Added a new drawer system, the Harn Alunan T.  
  3. Added 9 new Lamello Cabineo X hardware Edge Array options:
    1. Lamello Cabineo X Flush 12 
    2. Lamello Cabineo X Flush 8 
    3. Lamello Cabineo X Flush Shelf Support 5mm 
    4. Lamello Cabineo X Flush With Cover Cap 12 
    5. Lamello Cabineo X Flush With Cover Cap 8 
    6. Lamello Cabineo X Flush With Cover Cap Shelf Support 5mm 
    7. Lamello Cabineo X Overlay 12 
    8. Lamello Cabineo X Overlay 8 
    9. Lamello Cabineo X Overlay Shelf Support 5mm 
  4. Improvements & additions have been made to the cabinet Shadow Rail feature.  
    1. All updated to work with a backing rail. 
    2. The prompt “Add Wrapped Batten” in all products has been changed to “Add Backing Rail” to avoid confusion with the main Wrapped Batten feature. 
    3. Added the ability to have the backing rail in-between the cabinet sides. 
    4. Drawer Stretchers will now sit behind the shadow rails. 
    5. Added SEARCH functions to look for "L-Shape", "Solid Rail" and "Batten" If the name of the profile has "Solid Rail" in the name it will use machinable parts. If "Batten” is in the name, it will change the backing rail to a wrapped batten. If the name has "L-Shape" it will turn on parts to create an L-shaped shadow rail. With this setup, users can easily create their own shadow rail features by adding rows to D!LookUpTableShadowline.
    6. Added three new Shadow Rail profile styles: 
      1. L Shape Solid Rail with Backing Rail 
      2. Gola Standard 
      3. Gola Zero Radius 
    7. Mounting clips added, and 3 new columns to the lookup table in the door wizard for the position of the clip and the type. 
  5. Added two additional Sink Faucet options. 
  6. Added a new global variable, “Use Simple Face Frame”. This will now turn on a simple face frame when the doors are inset and “G!Inset Door Setback” is less than 0. 
  7. Added an appliance panel option to the Fridge product. Note that the default sizes are generic and will need to be modified to match appliance manufacture’s specs. 
  8. Added a double Facia (False Front) feature to all Sink Cabinets, the Master Cabinet, and several other base cabinets. 
  9. Added a new frameless master cabinet: Master Split Height Designer Cabinet.  
  10. Added six new global variables to control the inset backs left and right on corner cabinets:
    1. “Base Left Corner Inset Back”
    2. “Base Right Corner Inset Back” 
    3. “Tall Left Corner Inset Back” 
    4. “Tall Right Corner Inset Back”
    5. “Upper Left Corner Inset Back”
    6. “Upper Right Corner Inset Back” 
  11. Added a new global variable, “Thick Backs Top and Bottom Use Default Construction Method”. With this selected, the top and bottom machining on thick backs will look at the default Construction Method Top and Construction Method Bottom. This will address certain challenges that are encountered when configuring cabinet back machining when the method differs from the carcase machining. 
  12. Added the "Use Aluminium Handles" prompt to all products with handles. Previously this was only able to be activated from the Door Wizard
  13. Added a Library Change Log to a worksheet in the Factory workbook. This can be used to track & document custom library changes and/or feature requests. Also useful for MV technical support agents or service providers to review information about your library. 

Modifications 

  1. Modified the “Cabinet Leveler” feature inside the Notched Toe Kick subassembly. Materials for “EZ Level” have been renamed and the SA info has been updated to better reflect the needed hardware quantities and names for ordering.  
  2. Drawer Divisions within Door/Drawer cabinets will now only contain horizontal dowel/screw holes where they meet up with stretchers above or below.  
  3. Modified the "Internal_Profile_Lead" location inside center pocket tool path of MDF Profile Doors. Lead in should no longer interfere with the rail detail in small doors/drawer fronts. 
  4. Toe kick assembly boxes have been updated to look at the global variables "Toe Kick End Offset", "Toe Kick Finished End Offset" and "Toe Kick Back Offset". Added new global variables for the Adjustable Leg subassemblies as they were looking at the Toe kick offsets. New global variables have been added: 
    1. “Adjustable Leg End Offset”
    2. “Adjustable Leg Finished End Offset” 
    3. “Adjustable Leg Back Offset” 
  5. Updated the hinge plate setback as well as the door reveals in the Diagonal and Transition cabinets. Default results should be improved in these scenarios. 
  6. Resolved issues when adding a Component Door insert into an opening.  
    1. The Prompts "Is_DivisionLeft", "IS_Division_Right", "Is_Shelf_Top", "Is_Shelf_Bottom" are now visible prompts on the Construction Options tab.  
    2. The Prompts "Left_Hinge_Overlay" and "Right_Hinge_Overlay" have been updated as well as the "Left_Reveal_Overhang" and "Right_Reveal_Overhang". The overlays will now calculate correctly when changing the Left and Right hinge overlay types. Previously the “Hinge_Overlay” and “Reveal_Overhang” prompts were disconnected with one another. 

Resolutions General 

  1. Resolved numerous issues and inconsistencies with all drawer system subassemblies. Reviewed, compared, and conducted extensive testing within each drawer subassembly. Some items addressed (not a complete list): 
    1. Resolved issues with switching between back over bottom and back around bottom construction. 
    2. Reduced complexity of (Space_Required_Under_drawer_Bottom) Formulas, verified they were subtracting (Reduce_Bottom_Thickness) 
    3. All Drawer Systems now contain 3SIDEDCUTOUT for center notch function. 
    4. All drawer system bottoms that receive rout machining to size the thickness are now using a 4-sided cutout token on the part instead of an associative Dado token from a phantom part. This solves some reported Toolbox post processing (nesting) issues. 
    5. Many other issues resolved.
  2. Global "ADA Sink Toe Kick Options" category no longer missing from Library Update. 
  3. Resolved an issue with sink cutout graphic not displaying in 3D. 
  4. Resolved an issue with Extruded Toe Kick Base when used on a 90° blended radius. 
  5. Resolved a misspelled prompt in Drawer Stretcher subassembly (Strectcher Width).
  6. Resolved issue with applied finished ends not displaying in 2D elevation view of product. Also corrected elevation dimension that occurred in certain circumstances. 
  7. All Extruded Products using legacy "G!Default_Routing_Tool_CW" variable have now been updated to use "G!Default_Cutting_Tool". 
  8. When certain adjacent cabinets were processed together, Perfect Grain Container errors would sometimes appear. This was due to the system trying to perfect grain match all the adjacent panels onto the same container and exceeded the size of available sheet stock. To prevent this, all designer cabinet products now have their “Perfect Grain Container” option defaulted to “None”. Users will be able to set the “Perfect Grain Container” as needed.  
  9. When adding glass to the MV Profile Door, the layer name used has been corrected to “Door_Glass”.  
  10. Resolved issue in the Component Drawers subassembly that affected the “Left/Right Reveal” variables. 
  11. Adjusted the IF PEANUT 3 Invisible Fastener machining to match manufacture’s specifications. 
  12. Resolved an issue in Open End cabinets. Dowel/Screw machining will no longer be missing in certain conditions. 
  13. Resolved an adjustable shelf line bore hole issue inside Transition Angle cabinets when back machining was required with Continuous Shelf Holes option selected. 
  14. Resolved a 2D cross section dimension detail when changing the door bottom reveal. 
  15. Resolved a small calculation issue inside the Cost Based Reports related to the waste factor. 

Additions/Resolutions Face Frame Cabinetry 

  1. Changed the behavior within Face Frame cabinets wherein changing End Condition to “Applied End” or “Face Frame” the side face frame overlay control will switch to “Outside Control”
  2. Updated the Face Frame subassembly to include the "Left_Stile_Scribe_Amount" and "Right_Stile_Scribe_Amount" in the stile size and the overall dim within the automated generated 2D Face Frame image and 2D elevation drawing of products. 
  3. Applied Panel FF will now extend in the correct direction when using the “Extend Front Edge” prompt. 

Additions/Resolutions Closet/Wardrobe 

  1. Added additional global variables to better control the desired Cleat options. 
    1. “Closet Top Cleat” 
    2. “Closet Center Cleat” 
    3. “Closet Bottom Cleat” 
    4. “Closet Individual Cleats” 
    5. “Closet Full Cleats” 
    6. “Closet Full Top Cleat”
