I work in a small carpentry specialized in making custom made kitchens. I am now working on shifting our drawing process from pencil and paper to CAD, most likely Rhino. At this stage I’m mainly trying to figure out how far I can take the process of standardizing my drawing modules, while still being able to modify the measurements quickly.
The picture below shows a model of how a basic cupboard could look. My wish is that I could make a bunch of standard cupboards etc, and then easily scale them to the correct width. The tricky part (for me at least) is how to scale ONLY the lines marked with the circle, while keeping the frame widths etc as they are (marked with X), as well as keeping the handle in the centre (marked with an arrow)…?
I don’t quite know if this can be done in a good way with Rhino, or if perhaps I should learn Grasshopper (which I feel should be able to do it)? Or do you guys have any ideas how this could be solved in a simple way? My dream would be if I could simply type in the correct width (which I think Grasshopper could do) or do just one simple scaling, without having to move a lot of components or scale the parts individually etc…
Thankful for all help and ideas!
