Thanks for your reply Alex

See attached a rough sketch, basically what is drawn already but with the addition of a door with hinges on the right side

Hi,

 

It is quite normal to use a cabinet with 2 backs, 2 sides and a front.

None of these elements can be put in null like that under penalty of error

 

You need to use free shape mode, even if many are afraid of it, it is actually very simple to use

The first thing to remember is that here we start by drawing the cabinet in top view (in overall dimension)

Send me a sketch of how you imagine this finished (with the door) and I will make a small video demonstration.

 

Cheers, Alex

Hello. 

We have just finished a shop fit out that had a number of doors that sat at angles other than 90º. I didn’t take the time to draw those in Polyboard as I didn’t expect it to come up again so I trimmed & drilled manually.

Well, directly next project and we have it again! So maybe now would be the time to find out if it’s possible.

It will also house a folding bed with integrated lighting and plug sockets so in all it’s a little above my skill level for now!

 

Please see attached the first draft, still some key measurements to get from the bed supplier etc but it gives an idea. We are hoping to have the angled cabinet have a single door hinging on the right side, but when I add this it makes a strange mess of the cabinet currently. 

 

Any advice greatly appreciated!

 

Best,

Rich
