Hi,

 

Qty feature in the project mode and the crash issue with the ungroup parameter are currently being analysed. This should be solved in the next update but there is no timeframe yet on it. 

 

Make sure you are subscribed to this topic. You will be informed by email when the next version appears with detailed information on this version update.

regards

Yes, that is how I did it. It worked, as in it exported them, it just did not give an ideal result with the identical nestings showing to cut multiples and showed each of the 21 sheets as separate nestings.

Have you tried to export via the catalogue mode? 

 

There you can pull in your project or cabinet and change qty. I did a test and it worked.

 

Let me know

That has made it not crash but it has not done multiples of the same sheet if they are identical. The first 9 sheets of the export are identical and showing up as 9 different sheets not the same sheet 9 times. So it is half a solution, it surly should not still crash?

 

I have ended up exporting this drawing on the little bridges accross the pieces I needed to grain match but would like to know how to do it properly for other projects.

Hi ,

 

Can you please have a look at your cutlist options? 

 The reason for the crash could be related to the parameter ” ungroup models”  it should not crash if you thick off this box. Can you give it a try and revert?

Hi,

It seems you got no reply yet on this post. Have you got more information yet on this? If not please provide us with your parameters file. 

 

If you have not done this yet it can be found under the menu Tools / save parameters. This is the file we need.

Any news on this? We need to export it and cut it this week. If I am going to have to do it with the temporary bridges can you let me know and I can start working on it.

Hi,

Thanks, we’ll take a look ASP.

For info, looking at you requests, we have seen that the quantities option in projects cutting lists is not activated, so we’ll be releasing the next version update with the possibility to multiply the project output. This will certainly make manufacturing several identical projects easier.

Best,

Ness

Hi,

Adjusting quantities in Optinest can not maintain grain matching as the matching information is exported by Polyboard to Optinest.

Exporting a quantity in a catalogue should work though.

To see why this is crashing can you post the Polyboard project and catalogue files.

Thanks,

Ness

We have a smaller kitchen that we need to make 27 of them. We want the doors to be grain matched on each of the cupboards. This is working totally fine when we just have the single export of each component. see below.

When we then change the quantity to 27 to stops following the grain matching rule and just does each component separately. Is there a setting somewhere I am missing?

I have also tried drawing the units we want matched to be a single profile (by editing the DXF file and adding little bridges between the parts I will then need to remove later). This has worked but seems an extra step.

I have also tried to add all of the components into a catalogue file and export the 27 matches pairs there but the program just crashes so doesnt get me closer.
