Hi,

 

Blum Blum/Hing/73B359-X00/app/ol 16-20 has D13 overlaps value

 

D13mm +3 mm = 16mm to +7mm =20 mm  ol = 16>20mm

 

D13.pngImage Enlarger

in used with 18mm side with max slack of 1mm with 0mm B.plat, and left only 3mm from edge

With 71B3590 (D11) you can change hinges in you sub-methodes with Blum/hing75T159-X00/app/ol 14-18 (D11)

 

in used with 18mm side with min slack of 1mmn, to get 6mm from edge, slack of 2 to get 5mm from edge ,

and finale max slack of 4mm to get the 3mm mini recommended

 

(included cad drawing)

 

Hope that's helpful, Cheers, Alex

Hey Alex, thanks for getting back to me. 

We're using the D11 (Blum 71B3590)

 

Just not sure on why polyboard is by default putting the hinge so close to the edge? 

Don't want to make any changes if it's not needed as i'm sure there's a reasoning behind it's placement but maybe i'm still not understanding it right.

 

At the moment, although i'd have to double check to be sure, it's putting the edge of the 35mm hole around 2mm from the door edge. So when using 1mm edging (no pre-milling for edging) it blows out the side of the melamine panel and 2mm is right on the edge

Do I maybe just have the wrong fitting for this type of hinge? 

Method as default is:

 

Blum/Hing/73B359-X00/app/ol 16-20

 

Best,

Rich

Hi,

 

which hinges are you using? D11 or D13

 

For info classic hing have tow overlaps D11 and D13

Image from D11

D11.pngImage Enlarger

This is a fixed value from side with 0mm base plate 

and fixed by default on the side panel, to have the right position without using the regulation screw.

 

If you want fixed positioning from door edge, you should change reference axis from fitting, like Blum/hingxx-X00/app/tb=5

 

But in this case, PolyBoard is not able to handle the required 35 mm hole position using the door slack.

This value must be adjusted according to the slack you want, which PolyBoard does automatically by selecting the right hinge

5mm from door edge, with 18mm side equals to 2mm slack and hinge with D11 (11mm default overlaps +5mm)

5mm from door edge, with 18mm side equals to 0mm slack and hinge with D13 (13mm default overlaps +5mm)

 

Hope that's helpful, Alex

Hello.

I noticed that Polyboard is placing the 35mm hinge hole too close to the door edge currently, leading me to have to adjust hinges to the maximum setting for them to be in the right place. (standard gap between all doors being 2.5mm, which is already in my methods)

Before we switched to CNC I was using the Blum Ecodrill for drilling the hinge holes in the door and always had it set to 5mm which seemed to work well. 

 

I'd like to know how to adjust my methods to account for this. 

 

If you need any more info let me know. 

Cheers!
