Thank you for the information.  I appreciate you taking the time to build that up in Polyboard.  Did you intend to attach the Polyboard file as well?  I don’t see it.  What you’ve provided does help, though.  

I found the attachment.  Thank you!

Hi Dale,

There’s no problem to build you project in Polyboard.

However, the you can’t draw the mouldings as Polyboard will only draw rectangular sections.

To show the mouldings you’ll have to export the Polyboard file into CAD or SketchUp.

However, Polyboard will give a fairly good visual and all the cutting lists and manufacturing data.

I would suggest that you make you unit by assembling a corner cabinet with a box.

I attach a, example mockup project that you can play with.

All the best,

Ness

Hi there, Forum.

I have experience in woodworking -and- 3D modeling, but am struggling to wrap my head around Polyboard.  In my mind I am trying to get from concept to finished product and it doesn’t seem a very straightforward procedure.  Before I spend too much more time learning the platform, let me get input from you.  Here is my concept furniture piece.  I could build it by hand, but I have few tools nor the work space to build it in.  Would it be possible to design this in polyboard and have it fabricated?

The concept:

Minus the fireplace, I’d like to build what is represented in this drawing.  I have an existing piece of furniture I would like to emulate in style and color:

I routed the edges of the cabinet doors and the top piece.  Have no idea how to include such a feature in polyboard, so any pointers there would be awesome.

What do you think?

Thanks in advance…
