Hello Terry and Jim,

Lovely project Terry!

This sort of project should be easy to set up in Polyboard and you shouldn't even need SketchUp.

If you have others and would like my help setting them up send me the specs and I'll try to shoot a video or 2 to show you the process.

All the best,

Ness

Thanks Jim for your nice words.

To be honest Im not yet using the software to its full potential and thus I just designed the bookcases as separate carcasses in polyboard and then returned them on the other wall. The client had to use her imagination a little bit.  Im not yet that proficient at getting things looking right in 3d etc with all the finer details such as the door and the shelf above, I'm hoping to get some free time soon to go through a few more videos and I'm really keen on some sketch up tutorials which I think Ness is going to do and then get some DXF files and start playing around with all that. The cab files I'd rather not upload as they dont do justice to the software......but when I manage to fully complete a project using all the features of polyboard then I will do a upload with both images of the finished work and the file.

How are you getting on with the software Jim

 

Terry

I think im doing a similar thing at the moment. I can get things more or less right but cant get details perfect so couldnt use the cutting lists and things yet. I need to spend some more time on it to sort these things out but have been so busy i havent had a chance yet.

Its good as a workaround solution and great to see what i could be doing with the software. Im sure its going to speed things up and make them more accurate loads when i get the hang of it.

Hi 

I made and fitted these bookcase last week. I spent a couple of hours with the customer with my laptop in her home her home and we designed something together on polyboard for general storage for a mixture of hardbacks paperbacks and cds/dvds. I'd liked to have represented the moulding at the top and the skirting board in the images but havent worked that out yet. The client was very impressed with the software and was appreciative of me spending the time planning it all with her. It was painted with 4 coats of Acrylic and as the clients had just moved in they were 'keen' to load it all up within hours of me finishing! Thank god for quick drying acrylic paint.
