Hi John,

To get your working plans and cutting lists you must buy a CabinetFile service from this page:

https://wooddesigner.org/member…..discounts/

Within the scope of this service we will reveiw your project and setup the correct hardware.

All the best,

Ness

Hi John,

I’m not sure which project you are referring too, but glass can set up as a panel and the sizes will be output in the cutting lists.

To assemble using biscuits you don’t need any mark up made by Polyboard. Just use the default board to board assembly and add the biscuits on the fly as you build.

To add the drawer runner holes with Polyboard they need to set up the hardware in the library. If the model already exists in the library you can use as is. Again if building by hand you probably don’t need the hardware marked out on the boards by Polyboard.

What drawer runners are you using?

All the best,

Ness

Hi John,

The sizes displayed are the internal zone sizes.

The drawer box sizes are calculated from the zone by subtracting the slack values.

All the best,

Ness

Hi John,

Sorry to get back so late, but I was away at the end of last week.

All cabinets are recalculated with the new thickness and spaces remain equal.

All the best,

Ness

Hi John,

To get rid of a panel just select it and set it’s material to “nil”:

nil-panels.pngImage Enlarger

Not sure what you mean by getting rid of shelves and your TV unit.

Can you send a drawing of what you want to achieve?

To get another panel thickness just create a new panel in the library .

Go to Libraries>Panels materials and click the “New” button:

new-panel.pngImage Enlarger

Fill in the appropriate fields and put 26 as the thickness.

Then select the panel you want to change and in the ‘materials” properties choose the new panel in the list.

All the best,

Ness

Hi John,

To assemble units in a project just set the project view to isometric and clip the units together.

Here’s a quick video : 

http://screencast.com/t/Il6ORP5WvD4s

Making a TV unit is very simple see this video:

Once made just add it to the project like a cabinet.

All the best,

Ness

Hi John,

You can either make 2 cabinets and assemble them in Project mode2-boxes.pngImage Enlarger

Or use inner tooling to cut the sides :

For us to advise you as to the best method for your project, can you post a drawing of photo of what you are trying to build?

best regards,

Ness
