    Grid

    The Grid content imports an interlocking set of shelves and divisions.  Once imported, the layout of the grid can be adjusted.

    An area containing a grid.

    Using The Grid

     Sizing And Spacing Methods

    Size

    The size spacing method allows the minimum spacing between openings to be specified.  Shelves and divisions will be added or removed to fit the required spacing. It calculates optimal spacing to ensure all areas are as close as possible to (but at least) the minimum size provide. 

    When the grid is rotated it uses the minimum size as the space between shelves and division rather than automatically calculating the spacing.

    Quantity

    The quantity dropdowns show the number of openings in the grid.  This is updated according to the spacing.

    Act. Size

    The Act. Size shows the actually spacing between divisions and shelves.

     Min. Size

    The minimum size is the minimum gap between the shelves or divisions in the grid.

    The actual spacing between divisions and shelves may not be exactly the value entered. It is calculated to be as close as possible to (but at least) the minimum size provided.  The calculation is based on the space available along with thickness of parts.

    Recesses

    Quantity

    The quantity method allows selection of the number of evenly sized vertically and horizontally openings.

    Quantity

    The number of openings in the grid.

    Act.Size 

    The Act. Size (actual size) shows the spacing between divisions and shelves. 

     

    Adjustable

    The adjustable method allows the number of openings to be specified along with each opening's width and height.

     

    Horizontal

    This dropdown allows selection of the number of horizontal openings (Rows).

    Vertical

    This dropdown allows selection of the number of vertical openings (Columns).

    Recesses

    Sizes

    The last available row or column will grow or shrink to fit the remaining space available.

    The size of openings is adjusted by editing the value in the Row or Column box.

     Rotation
           

    GridGridGridGridGrid       

    Rotation slider

    The rotation slider sets the angle the grid is rotated to.

    The grid is always rotated from the centre of the area it is in.

    Rotation Input

    The rotation input allows an exact angle to be specified.

    Quick Input Buttons

    The 5 angle buttons allow quick selection the rotation angle (in multiples of 45deg).

    Division Offset

    Moving this slider changes the start point of the divisions.  This allows control over where parts intersect.

     

    Dragging the slider to the right moves the divisions.

    Shelf Offset

    Moving this slider changes the start point of the shelves. This allows control over where parts intersect.

     

    Dragging the slider to the right moves the shelves.

     

     

     Recesses

    Recess From Front Of Division

    Entering a length here reduces the depth of the divisions from the front of the area.

    Recess From Front Of Shelf

    Entering a length here reduces the depth of the shelves from the front of the area.

    Recess From Rear

    Entering a length here reduces the depth of both the shelves and divisions from the rear of the area.

     Part Enables

    Override Enables

    The presence of any shelf or division in the grid can be controlled.

    This can be used to remove short divisions or shelves (in the corners) when the grid is rotated.
