Hi Jack,

I attach a pdf that explains the Polyboard XY conventions.

All the best,

Hi Jack,

In general you have to import the 3D dxf file into SketchUp. This is only possible if you have the pro version of SketchUp.

If you have only the free version, I have made the conversion for you and attached the SketchUp file.

All the best,

Ness

Hi Ness:
Material looks good. On my way to order lumber.

Tried to load into sketchup with no luck. Which file should load and any instruction would be appreciated.

All the best,
Jack

Hi Jack, 

This a compressed file that contains the original Polyboard model as well as:

– a pdf folder with the cutting lists, general plans, detailed plans of each part, labels for each part and 3D views of the cabinet

– a dxf folder that contains 2D files that can used in CAD programs (or to run a CNC) as well as a 3D DXF model that you can load into 3D presentation  software.

to open these files right click the zipped file and do extract (decompress) them to your hard disk.

You will then be able to open the Polyboard model in Polyboard and print the pdf documents with a pdf reader like Adobe.

the DXf files can be opened with a CAD program like AutoCad , Draftsight or SketchUp.

All the best,

Ness

Hi Jack,

Here are your production documents.

I hope you enjoy building this project.

I’d very interested to see how you build this so don’t hesitate to post any photos you have.

Also don’t hesitate to post any questions if you need advise on the build.

All the best,

Ness

DO I OPPEN THIS IN POLYBOARD? WHERE?

Hi Jack,

No problem for the thicknesses, however there are 2 last consideration you should be aware of before we process your project:

1- The type of panels are you are going to use will depend on your local suppliers and sometimes real thicknesses can vary or the local supplier may not have 19mm but 18mm panels. I BUY FROM THE MILL AND GET THE SIZE I WILL NEED. I ALSO HAVE PLANING CAPABILITY.

For this reason I always suggest that you buy or at least make sure of the exact panel thicknesses before we process a project.

2- When made with panel materials it’s usual to glue veneers on the visible edges of the panels. This hides the rather nasty end grain of plywood or MDF etc. The thickness of the edging material is then deducted from the total width of the panel in the cutting lists. NO EDGING. I LIKE IT NATURAL.

Standard edging thicknesses can vary from 0.8mm to 2 or 3mm. Or you may want to glue solid wood edging in this case we’ll need to know the exact thickness you’re going to use.

If you don’t know what to do I’d suggest you go to your local supplier and ask his advice on what material will be readily available.

We’ll then do the final set up of the project with the correct thicknesses and edging.

On the other hand if you are sure you don’t want edging and the panels thicknesses are exact I’ll process the production documents.
ONLY THING I NOTICED IS I WILL PULL THE BASE(PLINTH) PARALLEL WITH THE FRONT FRONT. IF THIS A PROBLEM I WILL ADJUST WHEN CUTTING. THANKS, JACK
All the best,

Hi Jack,

What handles are you going to use?

If the thicknesses are all OK I can send you the working documents.

However, note that this project is set up using panel material with no edging.

You might want to add edging to have the correct panel cutting lists.

Please take time to check all the details of the attached Polyboard model before I process your project.

The cabinet file service allows only one production document output per project so future processing will require purchasing another CabinetFile.

All the best,

Ness

I WILL NOT BE USING EDGING, JUST FINE SANDING. LET’S PROCESS THE DESIGN. YOU’RE THE BEST.
