If they are surrounded by walls and you don't actually need modelled backs as part of the object then I would just do a Solid Element Operation with a slab to cut off the corner.
Of course this will not affect the floor plan view so you will need to fix that up with lines and/or fills.

really.....geez.
out of the 200 hundred "out of the box" cabinets that do all sorts of "stuff" there isn't one simple one that has an angled back?

Is there no BIMobject in the repository that has that functionality?

I don't really know without looking as I don't use out of the box cabinets.
I assumed that you didn't find any parameters in your objects that do this so I was suggesting a quick solution.
My objects don't do this either so I would use the SEO or if I really wanted to I could alter the scripts.
I have no idea if others have objects that can do this.
Maybe they do and will reply.

thanks for your responses Barry.
I'll keep looking thru the OOB objects to see if they can perform this simple function I'm in need of.
