Hello Antony,

No problem to send you back the Polyboard documents to test, however, you don’t seem to have attached the Polyboard file.

Could you post the .pb-cab file so that we can process it?

All the best,

Dear Ness,  The file I’ve send had material different for doors and visible sides. the inside will all be white. we also have a beading in different colour. we request you to send the complete manufacturing documents for the projects with cultists, drawings , labels, part machining details and assembly details. 

This is mostly for us compare it with our manual job card.

Thank you

Hi Antony,

I see that you have applied the default hardware from the older Polyboard libraries, these are just examples and will need to be adjusted according to the hardware you are really going to use.

I would suggest that you use the Quick Design  hardware and methods libraries as a basis to set up your own.

As an example I have remodeled one of your wardrobes.

In this example I have changed a few Quick Design Sub-Methods libraries and called them Lustro.

I have then assembled the Sub-Methods into a Manufacturing Method called Venus Lustro.

By applying the Method you can change all the characteristics of any model .

Note that for manufacturing methods to work you have to be rigorous in placing specific parts. Each part is named and the name is used to define how it reacts to the method. For instance fixed shelves will be placed with cams and mobile shelves with pegs.

In your model I’ve also seen that you have used a double back for a plinth, it would be better to use the plinth function to have a coherent model.

I have also added uprights to give space the drawer sides behind the double doors so that they clear the hinges.

Your project will require a through revision before going to production. This will take some time and is not included in the free CabinetFile service.

For this reason, for me to revise your model and help you create the necessary hardware and methods, you will need to you buy a CabinetFile Pro service  from the service page :…..discounts/

This service gives you one hours revision and coaching on your project.

All the best,

Dear Ness,

Greetings and wishes

I have completed one project designing. However we are not sure about hardware and fittings. Can you please check if it is all ok.:)

Our manufacturing methods

  1. Back sheet is fixed via dado with 12mm set back.
  2. drawer slides are standard 12.7mm spacing
  3. We have some places where we need only the doors with frame etc as per the drawing.

Things which we like

  1. We would like to have the part drawing which have machining details alone separately
  2. To have part labels with edgebanding and machining details
  3. Cutlist in excel format
