within 90 days. After that the designer component can no longer be used. However the
registration can be implemented after 90 days. A detailed introduction for installation
and activation is available in the help document SelectionProf_Installation_EN.PDF .

SelectionProf_Handbook_EN.pdf 9 / 144
Handbook SelectionProfessional

2. First steps

2.1 Starting SelectionProfessional

The programm can be started from the desktop icon or by selecting


Start/Programmes/Selection/SelectionProfessional.

The SelectionProfessional portal opens once the program has been started.

SelectionProfessional is divided into several parts:

1) Start design component Designer & Hettich catalogue

2) Start design component Designer

3) Start Hettich catalogue

2.2 Program components


1) Start design component Designer & Hettich catalogue
With this option, the designer, the CAD component and the catalogue in
background would be started. This is immediately available by accessing
favourites in the catalogue and does not need to be started anymore.
2) Start design component Designer
Here only the Designer + CAD component would be started. If the catalogue is
required only for a favourite query then it can be started later. The advantage lies
in the quick start and lesser consumption of the required system resources.
3) Start Hettich catalogue
Here only the Hettich catalogue would be started.
Please do not close any of these points while working with the program.

2.3 Example design

2.3.1 Starting and selecting a design


Once you have started the Designer from the start portal, you will see "Design
Assistant". The "New construction" option takes us to the construction selection window.
The basic types of the furniture you are going to design are shown in the construction
selection window. Selecting a "+" sign opens an option, "-" closes it again.
For the example design, let us select a "Standard cabinet / Single cabinet / Overlay".
The relevant dialog is opened at the bottom right by selecting "Carcase size".

SelectionProf_Handbook_EN.pdf 11 / 144
Handbook SelectionProfessional

Change the height to 820 (figures are always in mm, the unit of measure does not need
to be entered), width to 900.
Entered values do not have to be saved or confirmed by pressing Enter. You can switch
between the different input fields using the mouse.

Now select the "Bottom shelf" and enter the "120" in the "Height offset" field. This raises
the base by 120mm, with the sides continuing through to the floor.

The forward button takes you to the carcase division window.

2.3.2 Carcase division


The cabinet is displayed from the front and from the side. The Assistant shows all parts
that can be incorporated into the cabinet.

12 / 144 SelectionProf_Handbook_EN.pdf
Handbook SelectionProfessional

Insert centre panel


For the example design, let us use the "Insert centre panel" function to add the centre
panel. A new dialogue window opens at the bottom right.

The position of the centre panel is defined in the "Division" field. The position is set to
600mm from the left by entering "600mm:1". The 600mm relate to the clear internal
width. The mm must always be included for divisioning. Division is the only field that
demands the "mm" unit of measure. The "1" represents a ratio and indicates the
remaining available space. Details on using the division function are also provided in
the section headed "Front and component divisioning".

The green ticks are used for confirming the


entries you make and for inserting the centre
panel.

Setting zones
As the next step, we are going to add a shelf. A so-called "Zone"
must be activated so that the system knows which side to fit the
shelf on. This is done by clicking the mouse inside the
appropriate section of the cabinet. As we are going to put a shelf
in the left-hand section / zone, this is the zone you must click the
mouse in. It is highlighted in green.
Details on the subject of zones and parts are provided in the
section headed "Zones and parts".

SelectionProf_Handbook_EN.pdf 13 / 144
Handbook SelectionProfessional

Inserting shelves
Select the "Insert shelf" function from the Assistant. A new dialog
window now opens at the bottom right. We are now going to
space three shelves apart at equal distances throughout the
zone. To do this, enter or select the number "3" from the menu.
This corresponds to a spacing of "1:1:1:1".
As before, the entry is confirmed with the green tick.

Inserting doors
As the next step, we are going to add the doors. To do this, you
must once again activate the left-hand zone with the mouse so
that it is displayed in green. Select "Insert doors" from the
Assistant. The dialogue window opens. Select "Standard door"
as the door type. Select the "+" sign to obtain further details on
this door type. Two further options are opened: "Division" and
"Hinge". In "Division", select "Double door" from the
"Construction type" field. Options can be selected by clicking the
arrow to the right of the field. Finally, confirm your entries with
the green tick.
Inserting drawers
Now click on the right-hand zone, which is still blank, to activate
it. This zone is then displayed in green. From the Assistant,
select "Insert drawers".
The relevant dialogue opens. You can choose from a variety of
drawer types. In our example, we are going to select a "Wood-
box with internal drawer". This drawer is to be mounted on a
"Quadro runner". This option must, therefore, be selected too.
Use the "+" sign to select the "Division" option. Select three for
"Number". The fronts are distributed evenly throughout the
height. Entries are confirmed with the green tick.

14 / 144 SelectionProf_Handbook_EN.pdf
Handbook SelectionProfessional

Inserting handles
To insert handles, you must switch from zone mode (green) to the component mode
(red). This is done using the zone/component mode symbol.
After changing modes, the small front view turns from green to red.

Using the mouse, select the door fronts which are then displayed in red. Now select the
"Select knobs/handles function from the Assistant. A new dialogue opens. The entire
ProDecor product range is stored in the program. In order to make a selection in
advance at this stage, let us choose a "Drilling distance" of "128" and "Stainless steel"
as the "Material". Define the "Insertion point" as "Top opposite hinge". As before,
confirm all entries with the green tick.

Using the mouse, now select the drawer front. This also turns red. Once again, select
the "Select knobs/handles" option. The dialogue opens. The drilling distance and the
materials can be accepted.
Set the "Insertion point" to "Centered". These entries, too, must be confirmed with the
green tick.

The finished cabinet is displayed from the front and side.

This completes the cabinet design process. Use the "forward button" to quit the
carcase divisioning section.

SelectionProf_Handbook_EN.pdf 15 / 144
Handbook SelectionProfessional

2.3.3 Article list / Catalogue selection

The top right-hand section of the next window displays all of the fitting groups required
for the carcase in the "Article list" (1).

There are two ways of assigning exact fittings to these fitting groups:
1) Selecting from Favourites
2) Selecting from the Hettich catalogue

In order to select a fitting from the favorites, a fittings group is initially typed into the item
list (2). Thereafter, the probable favorites-sets for this selection appear towards the
bottom right in the list of favorites (3). A favorites-set consists of a favorites-header
and one or more Hettich fittings. For e.g., for the concealed hinges fittings group, the
Intermat 9943 TH FIX hinge is offered with a suitable mounting plate. By typing the
favorites into the selection below the corresponding fittings set is assigned above the
fittings group (4).

If you wish to select a fitting from the full-length Hettich catalogue, select the "Use
catalogue selection" option instead of the Favourite (5). The relevant fitting group is
then selected from the catalogue.

16 / 144 SelectionProf_Handbook_EN.pdf
Handbook SelectionProfessional

For example, the following selection is carried out:


Pos. 1 Cup hinge > Favourite > Intermat 9943 TH Fix
Pos. 2 Cup hinge > Favourite > Intermat 9943 TH Fix
Pos. 3 Knobs and handles > Use catalogue
Pos. 8 Quadro runner > Favourite > Quadro V6/550
Pos. 11 Adjustable shelf > Favourite > Compartment shelf support for wooden
shelves

To position the fittings group handles and knobson Use catalogue selection, the
entry should be initially selected with the help of the mouse in the item list.
Subsequently the entry Use catalogue selection is selected in favorites.

The catalgue start is executed with the green check mark . The program opens the
electronic Hettich catalogue and searches for suitable products under the handles and
knobsfittings group.
The catalogue now displays all handles that match the previously defined properties
(material + drilling distance).

SelectionProf_Handbook_EN.pdf 17 / 144
Handbook SelectionProfessional

Three symbols appear in front of the list:

Select accessories

Transfer to CAD

Detailed information

Select accessories
The accessories that are available for the main article are selected by clicking the
accessories symbol. A list of accessories shows all possible accessory types. If an
accessory is an article that is essential for the design, a red exclamation mark is set in
front of the relevant group. If you don't select an essential accessory article, the
program automatically prompts you to do so.

Transfer to CAD
If you wish to select an article from the product list for the design, select the CAD
symbol. Add the relevant article to the article list.

Detailed information
If you require additional information on the product, click the "Detailed information"
button to retrieve further details. From the detailed overview, you can also display the
accessory or transfer the article to the Designer.

In our example, we are going to select any random handle and click the Designer
transfer button.

The program automatically adds the handle to the article selection list. For the next item
of furniture you design, there is no need to select the handle again but retrieve it directly
from Favourites.

The article list changes its colour from black to green. This completes the article
selection process. The item selection is thus complete and the entry of the item list is
fixed. If the selection for this entry is changed, it has to be selected in the item list using
the right mouse click. At the end it can again be released using change.
One can leave the item selection using the forward arrow.

18 / 144 SelectionProf_Handbook_EN.pdf
Handbook SelectionProfessional

The finished cabinet is displayed in 3D. You can now carry out a number of actions on
the cabinet.

2.3.4 AutoCAD display


The CAD / Roomplan function in the Assistant allows you to switch to the AutoCAD
module. The cabinet is displayed in a wire grid 3D perspective. Component
dimensioning is the most important function in the AutoCAD section of the program. Let
us dimension the left outer side of the carcase automatically. To do this, change to the
top view using the symbol.

This is opened by clicking the "Dimension part" symbol (left). The cursor changes
into a rectangle. Using the rectangular cursor, now select the outer side. It is important
to select precisely the line that represents the outer side.

The component is automatically displayed with dimensions. It can be printed out or


saved in the 2D view.

SelectionProf_Handbook_EN.pdf 19 / 144
Handbook SelectionProfessional

The "Dimension part" symbol enables you to perform further dimensioning. Quit the
dimensioning mode by clicking the "Reverse dimensioning" symbol (right).

Click the "Switch to Designer button in the Assistant to quit the AutoCAD part of the
program and return to the Designer in the 3D view. Nothing needs to be saved in the
AutoCAD part as this is all controlled through the Designer part.

In addition, it is possible to switch to display options with the help of the Output tab.

3.5 Zone and components


3.5.1 Example of how to select zones
Selecting zones and components is an important function within the carcase divisioning
section. The cabinet displayed below is to be divided into different sections.

So far, the cabinet has had three evenly spaced centre panels. We are now going to
add a construction shelf to all four resultant zones.

28 / 144 SelectionProf_Handbook_EN.pdf
Handbook SelectionProfessional

If you wish to activate several zones, they must be selected in succession. If you have
selected the wrong zone, it can be deactivated by selecting it a second time.
If several zones were addressed and only one needs to be activated, a double click in
the desired zone will deactivate all the other zones again.
If the other zones require to be activated, a right mouse click on the point Activat all
zones in the menu will activate all cabinet domains simultaneously.

You can insert a construction shelf once all zones have been activated (green). The
data for the construction shelf now applies equally to all four zones. The construction
shelf will be inserted in all four zones.

Inserting the construction shelves has formed new zones. The cabinet now has a total
of eight zones. Four drawers are now going to be inserted in the top zones. As we want
all of the drawers to be the same, they can all be highlighted in one go. The drawers are
then selected from the menu and automatically inserted in the zones. It is important to
remember that drawers can only be inserted simultaneously if the zones are identical in
size.

SelectionProf_Handbook_EN.pdf 29 / 144
Handbook SelectionProfessional

Loose shelves are now going to be added across all four bottom zones. To do this, you
must once again activate all four zones and select the shelves from the Assistant.
Unlike construction shelves, loose shelves do not form zones.

Now we are going to insert doors in the right and left-hand zone. As this requires the
use of a left-hinged and a right-hinged door, they must be selected separately.
Highlight the zones individually and insert the appropriate door in each. Let us now
insert a double door in the middle. To do this, both zones can be selected
simultaneously. After selecting the door function, a double door will be inserted
automatically. If you activate several zones, the program automatically tries to insert
one door across all zones. If, added together, the zones are wider than 600 mm, a
double door will be inserted automatically.

30 / 144 SelectionProf_Handbook_EN.pdf
Handbook SelectionProfessional

The cabinet is now equipped with all elements. This is the point at which to select the
handles for the fronts. To do this, you must click the "Zone mode/Component mode"
to switch to the component mode (red). First, select all drawer fronts so that all
four are displayed in red. Using the "Select/change knobs/handles" function, assign a
handle to all drawers.
Now highlighted in red, all drawers are fitted with the handles. In the "Insertion point
Top opposite hinge" handle setting, the program automatically places the handles in the
correct position.

3.5.2 Changing, deleting, hiding parts


Any mistake that is made while configuring the cabinet can be corrected at a later stage.
You can also subsequently change any part already inserted.

Example of how to change handles


In our example, we want to relocate the handles from a centred position to the upper
mid-point. To do this, switch to the component mode (red) and select all drawer fronts.
Now press the right mouse button and select the "Change knob/handle" option. The
handle dialogue opens, allowing you to re-position the insertion point. You could, of
course, also have changed other options.

Example of how to change the side on which a door is hinged


The right-hand door is to be hinged on the left side. To do this, select the door in the
component mode and press the right mouse button. From the dialog, select the
"Change part" option. The door dialogue opens, allowing you to change the design to
"Hinge left".

SelectionProf_Handbook_EN.pdf 31 / 144
Handbook SelectionProfessional

Example of how to delete a shelf


To delete a component, it must be selected in the component mode. However, you
cannot select the shelf directly because the door is in front of it. By pressing the right
mouse button, select the "Show front panel" option. After removing the tick, the fronts
will be hidden. They are not deleted, but merely no longer visible. Now, in the
component mode, you can select the shelf you want to delete. Remember here that if
several shelves were inserted together, they will also be deleted together. This is
always the case for elements that are inserted simultaneously.

Summary
The zone selection function (green) is used for selecting cabinet sections for equipping
with doors, drawers, shelves etc.

Component selection function (red) is used for changing or deleting components


already inserted. It is also required for selecting handles.

In the component mode, the right mouse button can be used to perform different
functions:

Activate zones Changes over to zone selection. Performs the same


action as the zone/component selection button
Delete part Deletes the component selected with the mouse
Change part Opens the dialogue for changing the component
concerned

3.6 Front and component divisioning


A carcase needs to be divided into sections or ratios in many different parts. The drawer
front, for example, must be divided up into different height ratios. Centre panels must be
spaced apart by internal widths. The hole lines are arranged in relation to depth and
height. Cup drillings are positioned in the front.

Selection provides one single function for all of these operations: Division. This is used
for performing all the necessary functions.

Divisioning works with exact dimensions or ratios. These two options can also be
combined.
"1:1:1" is a division that splits a section into two equal parts.
"200mm:200mm:100mm" divides a 500mm section into parts at the distances specified.
200mm:1:1 divides a part in the lower or left section at exactly 200mm, the remainder
into two equal halves.

With this, partitions are always undertaken from left to right (e.g. centre panels), bottom
to top (e.g. drawers) or from front to rear (e.g. hole lines).

Below, you will find a number of divisioning examples. They may also be applied to
divisioning in other application areas.

SelectionProf_Handbook_EN.pdf 33 / 144
Handbook SelectionProfessional

Hole-line division
A division can be used to position the hole line in terms of depth.
Default setting: 37mm:1:37mm
The first hole line now starts at 37mm from the front edge of the cabinet side, the
second hole line starts at 37mm from the interior of the rear panel.

The inclusion of ":1:" shows that the depth of the cabinet is unimportant. Even if the
cabinet depth were to change, the dimensions of 37mm from the front and 37mm from
the back stay as they are. The ":1:" may be regarded as a variable placeholder.

If you wish to insert a third hole line exactly mid-way between the other two hole lines,
enter the following division:
"37mm:1:1:37mm"
Each : is present for a hole line.

Top panel / connector divisioning


Connectors can be set for the top and bottom panel.
The standard setting for "Connector division" is "37mm:1:37mm". This shows that the
connection is located exactly on the hole line. By changing the divisioning, you can, for
example, insert additional connectors.

Centre panel divisioning


Through the "Division", a centre panel divides a selected carcase zone from left to right.
A 1:1:1:1 divisioning inserts three centre
panels. The internal widths between individual
panels are identical.

34 / 144 SelectionProf_Handbook_EN.pdf
Handbook SelectionProfessional

A 300mm:1:1:300mm divisioning inserts three


centre panels. The first and last zone have got
a clear width of 300mm. Both inner zones are
automatically divided equally.

Construction shelf divisioning


Construction shelves are divided from bottom to top. Once inserted, they form new
zones. The reference point for a construction shelf is therefore the bottom shelf or a
construction shelf that has already been inserted. For the construction panels the inside
height is defined between the bottom panels.

A 300mm:200mm:1 divisioning inserts two


construction shelves. The inside distance of
the bottom construction panel to bottom panel
is 300mm and the inside distance between the
bottom construction panel and the top
construction panel is 200mm. The inside
distance between the top construction panel
and the top panel is calculated from the
remainder.

3.7 Item lists and favorites lists


After the definition and partitioning of the cabinet is complete, the fittings should be
allocated. This is carried out in the item list/favorites list section.

In this section the preassembled cabinet is examined on the basis of the available
fittings group. Subsequently the potential fittings can be allocated through the favorites
list or the catalogue selection of the corresponding fittings group.
It is sub divided into item list (1), favorites list (2) and front view of the cabinet (3).

3.7.1 Item list


All fittings group available in the cabinet are present in the item list (1). In the sample
cabinet three complete drawers are fitted with one handle each. This leads to the
formation of 3 fittings groups, one group Handles and knobsand 2 groups Three sided
drawer system.
If fittings groups can be merged together, based on their similarity, then they are
grouped, e.g. the fittings group Handles and knobs. For preassembled drawers the top
drawer is considerably lower than the remaining two, which is why only the two lower
drawers are grouped. The top drawer receives its individual fittings group. In contrast to
both the lower drawers, no front pullouts can be fitted into the top drawer.
To switch off the grouping the right mouse button is clicked anywhere in the item list.
The menu which is opened as a result displays the entry group positioning with a
check mark, which means that the grouping is active. The grouping is switched off by
clicking on the entry and all fittings groups in the item list are shown individually. To
reactivate the grouping, the entry group positioning is clicked again. By switching off
the grouping, different fittings can be allocated to the individual fittings groups.
SelectionProf_Handbook_EN.pdf 37 / 144
Handbook SelectionProfessional

If a fittings group is clicked on in the item list, the corresponding components in the front
view of the cabinet (3) are highlighted in red and the first favorites set is automatically
selected. To assign the desired fitting from catalogue selection the coreesponding
fittings group should be placed on Use catalogue selection. Subsequently the
catalogue selection can be started with the green check mark .
In order to operate the catalogue selection it is necessary to start the Hettich catalogue.
If only the design component Designer is started without the Hettich catalogue, the
following message would be displayed.

This question must be confirmed with a yes, so that the Hettich catalogue gets started.
If the field Do not display this dialog again is activated, then this dialogue will not
appear in future and the catalogue will start immediately.
After the catalogue browser is started, the following dialog would be displayed.

This dialogue must be confirmed with continue to display the catalogue selection.

After closing the catalogue selection, the fittings group is displayed in green in the item
list. This shows that this entry cannot be changed directly. If a new fitting requires to be
assigned to this entry, it should be activated again. For this purpose the fittings group,
which needs to be modified is clicked with the right mouse button. With the help of the
entry Modify in the menu, this fittings group can be activated again. The entry is
displayed in black again and a new fitting or favorite can be allocated to it again.

38 / 144 SelectionProf_Handbook_EN.pdf
Handbook SelectionProfessional

3.7.2 The favorite list


All fittings, which were selected in the previous catalogue selection, are saved in
favorite sets in the favorite list (2). A favorite set consists of a header and one or more
fittings, which were selected during the respective catalogue selection.
If a fittings group is clicked in the item list, then all possible favorite sets for this
positioning are displayed in the favorites list and the first favorite set is automatically
assigned to the fittings group. If any other favorites set should be assigned to the fittings
group, it should be clicked in the favorites list.
In order to view the contents in the individual favorite sets, the entry can be expanded
with the help of the plus symbol. A favorite set cannot be modified. If a fitting does not
match with a set, then a new favorites set can be selected from the catalogue selection.
A favorite set can only be deleted or renamed. However this functions only if the fittings
group in the item list is not displayed in green. The fittings group should first be
activated with the Modifyoption in the menu. If the fittings group and the favorites are
displayed in black, the individual favorite sets can be deleted or renamed. For this
purpose the corresponding entry is clisked upon with the right mouse button and the
desired point is selected in the menu. If the favorites set should be renamed, then only
the header of the set is changed.

3.11.9 Locking systems function


Construction types
The locks are available in different construction types:

Standard cabinet / single cabinet + storage wall construction / overlay + inset


- doors / flaps
- double doors
- drawer systems
- Sliding/folding doors

Office furniture / cupboard LR25+32 / overlay + inset

- Steel drawer (directly activated with the installation of the drawer)


- hanging file frame (directly activated with the installation of the hanging file frame)
- doors
- double doors

Office furniture / desk pedestal LR25+32 / overlay + inset


- steel drawer (directly activated with the installation of the drawer)
- file cradle (directly activated with the installation of the hanging file frame)
- utensil tray (directly activated with the installation of the utensil tray)
- front (directly activated with the installation of the front)

Choice and installation of locking systems


First, the chosen component (door or drawer) is installed. Afterwards, as with the
handles, the component that is to be fitted with a lock is chosen. This is done in
component mode (red). After the components are chosen, go to Select/change
locks/locking systems in the wizard. A dialog box opens.

Front type: The locks can be fitted on the front in different positions. To simplify
the choice, a front type (e.g. drawer) should be chosen first. Thus,
only the options that fit this type of front will be available.

SelectionProf_Handbook_EN.pdf 55 / 144
Handbook SelectionProfessional

Lock type: A type of lock is chosen

Screw-on lock Cylinder rotating bar


lock

Slam lock Lever lock

Push bar lock None No lock

Backset: Depending on lock type, a backset can be chosen.

The backset (x1) is calculated from the centre of the


lock to the outside edge of the lock housing.

The actual lock dimension of the front (x2) is


calculated from the backset value (x1) + length of bolt
+ locking angle (x3).

Lock position (x2) in the front = x1 + x3 + overlay

Some lock types have no backset.


For a double swivel door, an espagnolette lock and
a push bar lock, the position of the lock can be
freely determined. For an espagnolette lock, a back
set may be selected; the actual positioning is
however carried out on entering the X-distance.
Example: Backset = 15, dimension X = 50

If the chosen x value is too small, the minimum


value is used automatically.

Insertion point: The insertion point determines the lock position. This works
on the same logic as the insertion of handles.

Choice of lock reference with several components

It is possible to fit a double door or several drawers simultaneously. In this case, it is


important that the right component for the positioning of the lock is chosen. After the
option Select/change locks/locking systems is chosen, all components (red) are
highlighted. Click on the various components to deselect (blue) or reselect (red) them.
The chosen locking system is only fitted to the selected components.
The selected locking system can be built in for the activated components only.

3.15 Placing Handles on Sliding and Folding Doors


3.15.1 Placement Choices
Handles and knobs can be placed on sliding and folding doors similarly to drawers and
doors. However, there are differences based on the arrangement of the doors.

3.15.2 Placement of Handles


1) Select the sliding or folding door in the (red) constructive part mode.

2) Choose Select/change knobs/handles from the Assistant. The construction is


displayed in the front view.

3) Especially in sliding and folding door constructions with several doors, it is necessary
to place the handles on different positions. By default the handles are placed on all
selected fronts marked in red. To avoid this, fronts can be selected individually.
Process:

Initially all fronts are marked in red. To select the handle


position only for the left sliding door, click on the middle
and right door to unselect them.

Subsequently, the handle position will be selected for the


left door by choosing middle left for example. Confirm
you selection by clicking on the green checkmark.

The handles for the remaining doors are placed likewise.

Handbook SelectionProfessional

Construction information: The carcase is made with an 8 mm back panel. The rear
back panel is constructed from 16/18/19 top thickness.
Base
An angled base represents a special situation with regards to base recess. The base
recess measurements (from the front) normally relate to a 90 angle between the
bottom shelf and the front edge of the base.
If the same measurements were used for an angled cabinet as for a normal base
cabinet, the two base fronts would not fit together.

The program therefore allows for the recess measurement in relation to the carcase
side to be specified. The distance in the 90 angle is given as info text.

Fitting information
Mounting top panel: centre hole (D=5 mm, T=8 mm) + 3 fixing holes
Mounting bottom panel: 3 fixing holes. To enable better centring and positioning of
the revolving plate, a punch point has been provided in the
centre of the fitting. There is no need for mounting or
drilling at this point.
Choice of hinge: The door construction requires angled hinges (W45).
These can be chosen from the catalogue.
Corner carousel fitting: The full circle carousel fitting can be chosen from the
catalogue. The set already contains two revolving bases so
that these do not need to be chosen separately.

3.16.5 Corner cabinet Revo 45


Input / choice in SelectionProfessional
Carcase size
Carcase height: The carcase height of the Revo 45 and 90 is not identical with the
carcase height of a normal base cabinet.

The fronts of the Revo 45/90 rotate inside the carcase when being opened. Both
construction types therefore have no top panel. There is a clearance gap between the
front and the bottom panel. If a Revo 45/90 cabinet is constructed at the same height as
a normal base cabinet, both fronts would be offset at the bottom. The ordinary base
cabinet features an overlay on the bottom panel. The front of the Revo 45/90 has a
recess to the bottom panel (clearance).

A = corner cabinet Revo 90/45; H = 747mm


B = normal base cabinet; H = 720mm
1 = bottom panel corner cabinet
2 = bottom panel normal cabinet
C = bottom panel overlay
Overlay = 16 mm, clearance = 4mm
11 mm = gap between door and bottom panel with Revo 90/45
27 mm = offset value of carcase height, 720 mm + 27 mm = 747 mm

84 / 144 SelectionProf_Handbook_EN.pdf
Handbook SelectionProfessional

Carcase width: The carcase width and side depth are fixed and cannot be
changed. They are in line with ideal fitting values.

Front: A straight wooden front is fitted. The stainless steel finish


front is not being considered.
The front measurements can be fixed depending on side
panel thickness.

Bottom panel / base


The bottom panel is recessed by 40 mm in order to be invisible from the outside. This
also allows for the side to be notched. The base is thus offset in relation to the bottom
panel by another 10 mm towards the back.

A = bottom panel, recessed by the value x1


B = bottom panel, recessed by the value x2
C = door
Side notch = 11 mm + bottom panel thickness

4. Selection CAD (AutoCAD) Principles

4.1 Introduction to CAD


The Designer part of SelectionProfessional allows you to create, modify and save
complete cabinet designs. Automatic measuring using the Document Manager can also
be started from the Designer
The AutoCAD section is used primarily for the following:
- Exact 3D view and display, with all details of fittings and design elements
- Dimensioning individual components selected
- Dimensioning the carcase view
- Exporting the cabinet in DWG/DXF format
- Cabinet print-out / plot
Roomplan is based on the AutoCAD system and is therefore also started from the
AutoCAD environment.

4.3.1 Comparison of the individual save functions in SelectionProfessional


Saving in Designer The cabinet that has been created in the Designer is
saved. The cabinet is saved in a predefined
directory, which can be optionally expanded. The
directory path is on C:\Selection\User\CAD (here
C:\Selection is the installation directory of
SelectionProfessional)
File > Export in Designer To open cabinets on another computer with the help
of SelectionProfessional, they have to be exported
first. For this the cabinet should not be open in
Designer. If the functionExportis selected in File
menu, the cabinets that have to be exported should
be selected first. The second step is to specify a
target folder. Any directory can be specified as the
target folder. Subsequently the cabinet can be
copied into the directory with the File -> Import
function. It can be now opened here.
Create job/project The create job / project function is used to save a
new spatial planning. All information about this job is
stored in a database.
File > Export in SelectionCAD To open spaces on another computer with
SelectionProfessional, they should be exported first.
The room/space should be open. After clicking on
the Export function in File menu in SelectionCAD,
a target folder is specified. Subsequently the room

4.4 Measuring
4.4.1 Dimension part

Click Dimension Part to dimension various components of a cabinet (sides,


shelves, doors etc.).
Clicking the Dimension Part button changes the mouse pointer into a small box. Click
the box on the outline of the component (see figure below). The component will then be
displayed with its dimensions.

To dimension other parts, click the "Dimension Part" button again and select another
component. Click the Return to CAD button to finish dimensioning
With the Rotate measured item Xbutton and Rotate measured item XY button,
the measured components can be rotated.

The type of dimensioning can be set under Tools / Dimension Part / Settings .

Style
Absolute = absolute dimensioning of the bottom left side of the carcase
Hole centre to hole centre = relative dimensioning from drill hole to drill hole

SelectionProf_Handbook_EN.pdf 97 / 144
Handbook SelectionProfessional

Unit
millimetre = sets dimensioning to mm units
inch = sets dimensioning to inch units

Generate infotext = if this option is activated, information such as slot depths, drill
diameters, drilling depths etc. is also shown.

4.4.2 View dimensioning


You can perform your own dimensioning by using
the Apply Measure button or align with
dimensioning . You can, for example, select the
front view of the cabinet and dimension it yourself.
To do this, select the function and enter the point
where dimensioning is to start. Click on the carcase
edge and set the starting point of the dimensioning,
then select the point where dimensioning is to end,
followed by the position of the measurement line.
The program supports you with automatic capture
functions. This means that it automatically looks for
and finds the end of a line. This is indicated by a
small violet square. Once you see this, all you have
to do is left-click the mouse and the end point is
recognised.
With the Continue dimensioning button , it is possible to attach a chain
dimensioning to the most recently created dimensioning.
With the diameter button, curves and circles can be measured.
With the measure button, it is possible to remove a measure from the view, without
the creation of a dimensioning. The measured space can be read in the status bar.
With the Text button , it is possible to write text information in the view, so that it
can be printed along with.

98 / 144 SelectionProf_Handbook_EN.pdf
Handbook SelectionProfessional

4.4.3 Cabinet views


With the help of the menu item View / display details, the view details scale can be set.
- Low: Only handles and components are displayed. This accuracy of detail is especially
suitable for room planning.

- Medium: Components, handles and fittings are displayed without processing.

- High: Components, handles and fittings are displayed along with processing.

With the help of the View button or the menu option View/designs- , a cabinet
display can be selected.
Hide edges gives you a partly hidden view of the cabinet.

With the 3D area representation, a hidden and colored view of the


cabinet is available.

SelectionProf_Handbook_EN.pdf 99 / 144
Handbook SelectionProfessional

4.5 Printing/plotting
In order to understand the following points on the subject of printing/plotting, it is better
to implement a cabinet design beforehand.

Screen layout
Everything that can be displayed on the screen can also be printed. These may include
perspective views of a cabinet, dimensioned components (side panels, top panels,
bottom panels, etc.) or enlarged sections or room views.

Before you print a drawing, it is a good idea to display it on the screen in the way you
want to print it. For instance, if you want to print a perspective view of a cabinet, then
position the drawing as shown below. The quickest way to arrange a drawing as shown
below is by clicking the Full view button. If you only want to print a section of the
cabinet, e.g. a corner connection, use the Zoom window button.
If the hidden cabinet edges are not to be printed, the Hide edgesbutton or the
menu View / hide edges is used so that the invisible edges are deactivated. However if
a color printout of the drawing is required, it should be displayed with colored areas. The
printout always corresponds to the display on the screen.

6. Roomplan functions

6.1 Introduction
As a planning tool, Roomplan enables you to display cabinets created using Selection in
a room situation. Unlike previous 3-D planning systems, the user is guided through the
program by ergonomic Assistants.
Only a limited amount of prior knowledge of CAD is required.

The main functions in Roomplan are:


Selection of parametric layouts for walls, 3-D generation of various basic
configurations with simple walls, L- and U-walls.
Creation of various window and door elements.
Adjustment of floors and ceilings.
Display of various views, isometry and vanishing point.
Possibility to insert cabinet and decorative elements.
Creation of work tops, plinth, cornice, front panels and visible sides.

6.2 Starting Roomplan


Roomplan is started from the Selection CAD program section. From Designer, the
CAD section can be started with the CAD/Roomplan Assistant. Use the Roomplan
directory tag to call up the Roomplan Assistant.

Always select the New room plan function before starting Roomplan; this produces a
blank window.

6.3 Define wall


Start the Define wall function.
The Roomplan Assistant has various options for settings:

1. Definition of the wall type


2. This is where the size reference for the longitudinal details are set:
a) outer side of wall
b) middle of wall
c) inner side of wall (pre-set)
3. Details of wall height and thickness
4. This is where the wall lengths are given for the respective wall parts.
5. Close wall:
The starting and end points for the wall are automatically connected to close the
room.
Floor: A floor is put in the room.
Ceiling: A ceiling is put in the room.
6. Details of wall and ceiling materials
7. Preview of the selected wall type in the appropriate length.
SelectionProf_Handbook_EN.pdf 111 / 144
Handbook SelectionProfessional

The corresponding surfaces are displayed for material selection.


Wall type free wall construction
The wall type "free wall construction" is a special feature. It allows the construction of
free walls with as many wall segments and angles as desired. Because displaying the
wall can become complicated, we advise you change to CAD top view. Select function
Define wall and setting Free wall construction and proceed as follows:

1. Select .

2. This displays the AutoCAD window. The mouse pointer changes to a small cross.
3. Define the starting point for the first wall. Simply click the mouse anywhere inside
the AutoCAD window (ideally bottom left).
4. There are three ways you can define the wall length and wall end point:
a) Determine the wall end, wall angle and wall length with the mouse. A small
window will appear to help you; in it you can enter the length and angle.
Once you have selected the correct settings, left-click on the mouse
and the wall will be drawn.
b) You can also define the wall length by entering a number in the command line.
For instance, if you enter 2000 then a 2-m long wall will be drawn from the
starting point. The angle is determined by the angle currently set.
c) Drawing lengths and angles in the right-angled mode:
If you want the walls to be right-angled, you can set this by pressing F8 on the
keyboard.
Press F8 a second time to deactivate it. Now all you have to do is determine the
direction of the wall in direction x or y, and you can enter the length of the wall
directly. As well as entering wall lengths and directions with the mouse, you can
also enter numbers for exact angles. Using the Orth mode, enter the angle using
a prefixed < symbol, e.g. <30. This bends the wall 30 degrees to the previous
wall. You can then also
enter a number to
define the length of
the diagonal wall.

6.12 Definition of raster


Raster is used to bring the cabinets to a definite height dimension. This is essential
during the use of plinths in room planning. Top cabinets can be brought to the correct
height dimension with the help of raster.
When should a raster be defined?
Raster need not be always defined. If a cabinet is already furnished with a plinth, it can
be directly positioned on the base of the room planning.
Raster should always be defined for cabinets with levelling feet. Since the levelling feet
may possess a range of adjustment, otherwise an exact height can never be defined.

Cabinet with fixed plinths without Cabinet with plinths without Cabinet with levelling feet and
height raster specification height raster specification. Centre specified height raster for e.g.
of reference is the bottom panel. 110mm (desired plinth height)

124 / 144 SelectionProf_Handbook_EN.pdf


Handbook SelectionProfessional

Definition of raster
Raster can be accessed from room planning Assistant. Values can be specified with the
Define raster function.

Name Any name can be used for indicating the raster. A double click in the
field can be used to change the name.

Height The corresponding height of raster can be specified here. The height
is always calculated from the base (0mm).

Activates or deactivates raster

Planning reference of raster


Up arrow indicates that all inserted cabinets seen from height raster
will be inserted towards the top. Down arrow means that the cabinets
will be inserted towards the bottom.

Inserts a new raster

Deletes an existing raster

If values and settings are changed, they should be saved on the


diskette.

SelectionProf_Handbook_EN.pdf 125 / 144


Handbook SelectionProfessional

Raster as width raster


Raster can also be used as width raster. This enables cabinets to be placed exactly
along the width of a wall.

Corner distance Specifies the corner distance from wall end.

Depth Defines the depth of raster in the room

Sub divisions Defines the number of sub divisions to be made on the wall segment

Equal distances The sub divisions are made at equal distance

Linear division The sub divisions can be defined freely


Eg. 400mm:200mm:400mm:1

Use of raster
If raster has been defined, it can be activated or deactivated with the Show/hide
rasterfunction of the Assistant.
If only a height raster is active, it is immediately used during insertion of a cabinet. For
e.g. if the raster A1with a height of 110 is activated and then a bottom panel is
inserted, the cabinet is placed at a height of exactly 110 mm height in relation to the
bottom panel. If several rasters are defined, one raster should be selected as reference.
This is significant only in the perspective of the room.

6.13 Roof pitch definition


6.13.1 Insert roof elements
With the insert roof elements function, the roof elements of the room setting are
added. The insertion of room elements is best possible in the top view.
After accessing the function, knee tile height, room height and roof incline values should
be specified.

Here the roof incline should be specified according to the knee tile height and the room
height, otherwise the value would be overwritten. After the settings have been entered,
they are confirmed with the help of the green check mark.
The AutoCAD window reappears. The wall adjacent to the roof pitch should be selected.
For this the line of the corresponding wall should be clicked exactly with the help of the
small box.
The roof direction should be specified next. The mouse is clicked in the room, to specify
the direction of the roof ridge.

The insert roof elementsfunction should be executed again to specify further roof
elements, Only a single roof element can be specified at a time.

6.13.2 Alignment of walls to the roof


With the Align walls to rooffunction, walls can be compressed on the inserted roof
elements.
All walls adjoining the roof should be selected on accessing this function. The selection
is confirmed with a right mouse click or the Enter key.

Subsequently the corresponding roof element should be selected.

Now the walls are aligned to the roof pitch.

128 / 144 SelectionProf_Handbook_EN.pdf


Handbook SelectionProfessional

6.13.3 Blending roof elements


With the Blending roof elementsfunction, the individual roof elements are blended with
each other. When two roof pitches overlap each other, the overlappings should be
removed. For this purpose the respective roof elements are blended with each other,
this means that the roof elements are joined with each other and the projections are
removed.

After accessing this function the roof elements that are to be aligned should be clicked
one after the other.
If further roof elements are to be blended with each other, this function should be
executed one more time.
TIP: Blending ensures that several roof elements are connected to a single roof
element. Hence it becomes meaningful to connect all the roof elements first and then
align the walls to the roof.

6.14 Component functions


Work tops and plinths can be used in the Designer during cabinet design itself. They
refer only to one cabinet design at a time. If plinths and work tops are designed for
several cabinets, the work and plinth function should be selected from the room
planning. This considers several cabinets for designing plinth and work tops.
6.14.1 Work top functions
Selection procedure
Work tops can be inserted on preferred cabinets. This can be carried out for one cabinet
or more simultaneously. If several cabinets are selected, it is important to consider, that
all cabinets close equally and no cabinet is taller than the rest.
The best method is to select the cabinets one after the other in a sequence. For a right
angled cabinet assembly, only the first and the last cabinet can be selected. The work
tops are automatically designed for all cabinets. Exactly one line of the cabinet should
be selected, preferably the cabinet side.
If the cabinet assembly is not right angled, each cabinet must be selected individually.

Cutting work tops (with recommendation)


Work tops can be cut. This is required if the workplates are not linear. It is possible that
a value is recommended. The Cut work topfunction is used for this purpose. Exactly
one line of the work top is selected. Different
recommendations are indicated depending on the work top
model. This is best seen in the top view.
The red line is selected and the work top is cut at the
corresponding point. The entire procedure is confirmed with
the green check mark.

Work tops can be deleted or removed with the normal item .

Cut work tops (from point to point)


Recommendations for cutting were automatically implemented in the aforementioned
example. It is also possible that a work top needs to be cut individually. The
functionCut work top (from point to point) is accessed from the Assistant.
The edge of the work top is selected. The
starting point of the cross cut is selected (1) and
then the second (2). Both the points are
connected by a cut line and the work top is
correspondingly cut.

Isolate/show elements
Sometimes it is difficult to select the cutting recommendations exactly or define them
exactly during manual cutting. This can be eased by isolating components. Only the
isolated component is displayed and the remaining components are hidden. All actions
like cutting work tops can be carried out now. This is also helpful for other functions like

6.14.2 Plinth functions


Selection procedure
The plinth function is configured in a manner similar to the work top function. The
cabinets, which need a plinth, are selected. In order to design plinths simultaneously for
several cabinets, the bottom panels of all the cabinets should be of equal height.
The selection principle is analogous to the work top; the first and the last cabinets are
selected and the plinth follows the cabinet contour automatically. If a cabinet is not right
angled, the cabinets should be individually selected.
