Hi Saku,

You can’t make a tappered block in Polyboard however you can make the legs by cutting up a plinth.

In this example I have added a plinth all around the base and cut the plinth up with the surface split command.

The holes to hold the feet can be added using the single panel fittings command .

A attach the cabinet so that you can see how it’s done.

Tell me if you need a video to show how to do this.

All the best,

Ness

Hello,

See the attached sketch which will explain. The legs are made out of birch and added separately.

Hi Saku

We use a dummy leg template to visually show legs for under units. which I have attached.

It may not be what you are after, but it may be a starting place for your own.

We take it away when we manufacture as they are a bought in item and not manufactured.

Hello Saku,

Thanks for posting your question.

Are you trying to add legs under a cabinet or are they part of the cabinet’s structure?

If they are added, where are they and how are they fixed?

Can you post a sketch, drawing or photo  so that I can understand fully what you are trying to do?

All the best,

Ness

I have tried to find a way of making different styles of legs under the base cabinet, but I havent found the way. Mostly the legs we are using in furniture are about 100 mm long and thickness is 50-60 mm. The problem is to get legs narrowing from two sides about 20 mm. As a result the legs should be 30-40 mm thick when measuring from bottom.
