Hi Alexandre,

 

yes that works for the most part with the exception of the top piece of the double back.

Any idea how i can gain a small 1mm gab just above this area? The oversize/groove settings don't seem to be applying to my groove panels

Hi,

The only solution I know of would be to use panels with a false thickness,

for example 12.5 mm instead of the classic 12 mm.

Hi Alexandre,

 

do you know how i can add slack around the groove double backs yet please?

Also, around the mortice/tenon shelfs on the side panel as well.

 

Thanks!

Ok thanks. 

it won’t let me add slack around the double back grooves or above/below the M&T shelves. Can you check that out as well please.

Hi,

For all your duplicates, you give two opposite pieces of information, which means that Polyboard cannot understand

If you change the priorities, you cannot add grooves too

 

But I see the anomalies, I'll report later to dev team regarding the M&T

 

 

Please see this video for full settings

 

All the best, Alexandre

Thanks. I've come across a couple issues below if you can help please:

 

It won’t let me add slack to the groove panels at the front of my unit. I’ve added the measurements but it’s only applying to mortise/tenon shelves. 

 

Also, the rear double backs are set to mortice/tenon but they are creating a hole below the cut out on the side panel. I know about the groove/oversizing settings, but that doesn't seem to get rid of it.

Thanks. I've come across a couple issues below if you can help please:

 

The front double backs are set to groove, but it doesn't appear to be cutting it out of the side panel on the 3D image. Am i missing something?

 

Also, the rear double backs are set to mortice/tenon but they are creating a hole below the cut out on the side panel. I know about the groove/oversizing settings, but that doesn't seem to get rid of it.

Hi,

I hope this video's helpful

It's easier to add a square with inner tooling if you are novice in CAD drawing

All the best, Alexandre

That's fine, seeing how you did the main curve has helped a lot. Just struggling to add any extra's to it, such as the square cut-out. When i opened the editor it changed the curve entirley, as if i was starting from scratch.

How did you add the square cut-out after creating the curve?
I only have an old copy of the outline on dxf, you may need to remove the previous mortise-tenon cut outs.

I did it very roughly,

can you send me the real form of the side in dxf?

If you open the model, you can restore and see the curve I made

Hi Alexandre,

 

Thanks for that. I've just done the main curve shape as you have, but struggling to add the cut-out shape half way down and the lip at the bottom. Can you send across in a video please?

 

Thanks,

 

Connor

Hi, 

 

Closed curve should be use for cabinet view from top in free shape mode or inner tooling

 

May an open curve in angle tooling is more useful for your project

Please find cabinet Upload for example (In Polyboard 7.06a)

 

Hope that's helpful, Alexandre

I'm trying to add an angle to the side panel of a shelving unit for a van. It's curved at the back, which is what i'm trying to add on the side.
When i add the dxf file in shape editor, i get the following error message. Is there another way to add this angle from a dxf?angle-of-shelving.jpgImage Enlarger
