Hi everyone,

I think Gavins work around is problably the best solution.

Making a pie section works OK except that although the top can be sloped you can’t give the bottom the right slope.

Personally, I think that this sort of shape is best done as Gavin thought it out using a mix of Polyboard and CAD.

Polyboard will give all the cutting list and plans and SketchUp the final picture.

A great work around.

cheers,

Ness

Hi Mark 

I get what you´re saying with the pie sections , the top and bottom work fine the issue is with the sides, I cant get them to work out

Hi Gavin

From what I can see, you have a good workaround.

But I dont think you can rotate ‘off’ axis in project mode. You would need to produce two pie sections, one in each plane and these you would be able to turn around and rotate within the plane to clip correctly in project mode.

I would say this is a very tricky one and one im watching to see how it turns out.

HI Ness

I sorted out a work round to building the cabinet but I would prefer to build it  all in polyboard if possible,

I´ve created a model with just using sides then changing the slope on each side to create the effect I want but I have two issues , I cant seem to rotate the model to create sides and top sections when I place the model in project mode , so to achieve what i want I need to export the model to dxf 3d then import to sketchup then rotate each section, as I said this is a work around and with your knowledge of polyboard I´m  sure there is an easier way,

 

best regards Gavin

hi Ness I´m trying to achieve what I have in this cabinet but on the top and bottom areas also to get a full frame but would love to get the miters required also to join the exterior frame to the interior frame, I also tried to fabricate it as four sections (angledcab) but need the bottom to be able to slope like you can with the top slope tools and also be able to rotate horizontally in a project ?

Hello Gavin,

You can set up a cabinet that has all mitred panels like this:

mitred-corners.pngImage Enlarger

However, to do this you have to make the back the front, assemble the back and sides with mitres using a transparent material for the back  (now front), and add a double back to fill the other side.

The limit of this trick is that you can’t add a door.

I attach a model that you can look at.

I’m still not sure what you mean by making a frame with mitred corners, can you send a more detailed drawing?

All the best,

Ness

Hi Gavin,

Sorry to get back so late but I’ve been away giving some training sessions this last 2 weeks and have had a working internet connection.

I’d be happy to make you a video, but I don’t really understand your question.

Can you send me a sketch or photo of what you are trying to do?

cheers,

Ness
