Double wrapped driver blocks

Unread post by quazoosl » Fri Oct 11, 2019 2:05 pm

In the documentation I have for publications, there is mention of a double wrapped driver block. As far as I understand this is a driver block that has another driverblock inside of it, and that second block is based on an offset from the main driver block sides.

When and why would I want to use a double wrapped driver block?

I like to use this for door and drawer fronts helps to already have the gaps and hinges placed and brining in vertical and horizontal dividers with the assembly screws already in them because we use blind dado constructions this way I don't need to have a driving parameter for the side thickness :idea:

How does this work if the size of the second block is determined by offsets from the first block? Or are those just for the initial size?

the offset value in source file x1 and x2 for example are just place holders when inserted in the assembly where its used it will attach to the next closest parallel face to the first internal driver block automatically
