Hi Lucas,

To move the cabinets away from the walls, you can use the positioning coordinates in the properties list.

You can also set up dummy cabinets that you clip onto the walls and resize to set precise positions to clip onto.

Have a look at these videos to see how to use dummy cabinets:

https://wooddesigner.org/member…..nd-floors/

https://wooddesigner.org/member…..-cabinets/

Plinths can be added to each cabinet just by giving a plinth elevation and using the “add plinth” option.

You will have to extend them by making a virtual groove in the cabinet sides to “push” them pass the cabinet limits to meet the adjacent plinth.

What sort of door do you want in the corner?

You can add a door to each cabinet individually and play with the slack to get them opening correctly.

You should as well, set up correct slack around your doors and drawers.

You might also want to set up a double side to fit the drawers behind the doors as the door hinges might stop the drawer sliding .

Have a look at this video:

https://wooddesigner.org/member…..ind-doors/

another point when using Polyboard Lite is that although you can’t setup “L” shapes, machined parts, sloping tops etc .

You can load these projects into the Lite versions and work on them. This means that you can create them using even the free version and load them into your Lite projects.

However, you can’t install the free version and the Lite on the same computer, so you’ll have to have 2 computers to work this.

I attach a couple of files that you can load into your lite and try.

What’s cool is that, once the cabinet set up  you can continue working on it with the lite.

You can redimension them, add shelves, upright etc..

And you’ll get the correct cutting list as well.

To have the exact plans and dimensions for curved and angled parts you have to export the DXF 3D file and use it to redraw the parts, but all in all Polyboard Lite is a fantastic tool for the price.

Cheers,

Ness

Thanks for your attention Ness, here I attach the drawing that I have been working in project mode, although is not finished and looking quite messy as Im a begginer in Polyboard, here it is..

Is it possible to add a door in the corner taking into account this is not a single unit but two separate modules?

Thanks

Hi Ness and woodworking community,

I’m working on an L shape wardrobe in project mode, as I have the basic version of the software with no default L shape cabinet I’ve done it in two modules, when I place one side of the cabinet in situ, the software positions it automatically against the wall, as the walls create a close angle I don’t want the cabinet to run parallel to the wall instead I need my cabinet to form a 45 degree angle so you can see the space created in between the wall and the back of cabinet, is it possible to deactivate this option or a way to do it?

I would also like to add a plinth to it but I’m not sure how to do it at this stage as the wardrobe is finished.

 

Many thanks
