Thats explained it perfectly Ness. I was 90 per cent there yesterday and it was getting late so couldn’t quite figure how to change the method that i’d already set up. As you say its much better to have set methods for different situations and now I know how to create all my different methods for different drawer construction depending on the job in hand.

Thank you very much. If you can elaborate on how we can size the drawers to fit the runners 440 draw fits a 450 blum runner at a later date that would be perfect. Also I think there may be a certain clearance  that it must be allowed from carcase back….but not entirely sure……ive checked the blum website which is more confusing than I am!

Cheers Ness……

Hello everyone,

As promised click here for a video showing how to edit drawers so that the back and front are narrower and the bottom goes under them.

I show how to do this editing individual parts and using a manufacturing method.

Hope this video is useful.

Hi everyone,

Thanks to Jimboulk for answering Terry’s question so neatly.

In my video on setting up these sliders I used a sub-method which is useful to save all the parameters and be able to apply them to any new project without having to go and set up  each part individually.

Manufacturing Methods are a very powerful way to use Polyboard but can be a bit overwhelming to understand at first.

I’ll try to make a short video to so how to set up the drawer and explain the difference between editing parts and using a manufacturing method. 

From your conversation, I also noticed that I made a mistake in the video.

Not having installed these sliders myself, I didn’t know that the drawer length had to be 10mm less than the runner. So  I use a variable length draw calculated from the depth of the cabinet. Whereas you should use the fixed length parameter and set it at the runner length -10mm.

Sorry about that, I’ve still lots to learn myself.

thanks for all the info Jim. Cant quite sort it as I think its because I’m using a method that id put in earlier from Ness video.

Think there maybe some conflict that i’ll need to try and ‘edit’ the method that id constructed earlier.

Cheers

Haha, i didnt know it would change that depth! Bit disconcerting as i didnt think it would do that and not sure why.

Some things have clicked for me but still lots i cant seem to get to grips with. 

Trial and error often the best way for me too.

Jim I think that has actually worked…..and it has also changed the front back depth at the same time. How clever and you are obviously learning this software fast! Im going to pull the drawer out and see if it agrees with the drawer Ive already made. Im doing things backward here!!

Cheers Jim

To get the base to go into the sides, click the base to select, chose the link to left side / right side, then where it says type, choose groove then select your size, I go for 6mm on 12mm this material or 8 on 16mm which are the two main thicknesses we use in drawer construction.

 

cheers

Also select the drawer side, then click bottom then make the over lap 13mm. This will be spot on so the sides are then deeper than the front and back.

 

Also we always grove the base into the sides by a bit for strength. You are right that when using these runners always make ya box 10mm less than the runner. So 450 runner 440 box.

For the width of the front and back (internal dimension) its 42 mm less than your carcase internal dimension.

Max thickness of sides on these runners is 16mm unless you also rebate the 13mm side section that drops down past the base.

Nice job, they are great runners!

Terry,

 

Click the drawer base to select it. Choose drawer back, select over passing. Do the same for the counter front. Voila!
