The Cabinet plugin created by the Ruby Library Depot is a plugin to automatically create cabinets. These can be used to create kitchens, bathrooms and even furniture.
The plugin works by clicking the “Cab” button and then some options come up to describe your new cabinet. These options are great, there is a set of 3 screens that will pop up. The first one describes the general dimensions of the cabinet (width, length, depth and kick) and the second screen describes the door frame dimensions and the third is the counter top dimensions. The end result is a cabinet that is almost exactly what (most of the time) you are looking for. And it even creates the shelves within the cabinet, but does not give you any option to adjust those. But when it comes to styles there isn’t much options here. And the handles are not included, you will have to add them in later. Another drawback is that this tool does not create drawers. But in general this creates the basic cabinet. But what we found is that this plugin is a great tool to build the frame of your cabinets. Then you can go in and edit the cabinets as you see fit.
Overall, the Cabinet plugin created by the Ruby Library Depot is a great plugin for architects and furniture designers, or for those people wanting to design their own kitchens. At the time of this review this plugin is free and is available at Ruby Library Depot. There is another plugin called cabinet.rb, I assume that this probably had the extra options that I am looking for but this plugin is not available currently. I give this plugin 4 out 5 stars.
