Hi Gabby,

Grain direction can be specified globally and can be changed for each panel individually.

Just select the panel, in your case the plinth, click the "+" against "material" and open the "reference" options and select a specific direction.

You can also use the "axis rotation" option to turn the grain to a specific angle.change-grain-direction.pngImage Enlarger

 

All the best,

Hi Ness,

Since the option of the grain direction is for all the panels, is there a command thats specific for each panel? The plinth's grain direction should be vertical while the rest are horizontal.

Thanks

Hi Ness,

I applied the grain direction in each panel in polyboard, but I'm not sure if Vcarve's nesting recognized it. The direction of the grain didn't match the one in polyboard. How do I match it?

Thanks
