Hello Hung Vu,

I see you got a lot of replies 😀 Please ignore my solution i posted in another thread (with edge tooling). My solution is only relevant for generating optimal Holzher’s .hop files, Michael´s or Ness´solution you should be implementing – it is much easier.

Hi Hung

it is possible to create. Just learn to play around with shapes in the inner tooling library and shift them into place so that you only use a part of the needed shape.

You can also create your own inner tooling by drawing in cad what you need and load the dxf as a new inner tooling via Library/ + sign to add a inner tooling shape . You will be able to load your file from your computer and name the inner tooling. You can now use it on your doors 

regards

Michel

Hi Hung,

ofcourse you can do that. Polyboard starts in the quick design mode. You can create your own sub methods and manufacturing methods . For this I would like to advise you to look at all videos we have on the site to this subject. 

https://wooddesigner.org/support/polyboard-videos/

You can adapt manualy  the assembly’s as below 

When you add a drawer you need to select assembly first.

This will open a window where you can define the width ( lateral slack) , the heigth by using by using a top reference , the depth bij using the back reference. Also you can choose which element you want to have or not

Hi Hung,

A better way is to use the surface split as this is also working on doubble doors 

first you make the 45 degrees

then you select the drawer front and use structure/surface split

hung1.pngImage Enlarger

You set 0 percentage on position and select a slack as you wish. This slack will reduce the front height and so create the flat surface you need. As your angle is 45 degrees means that the slack you use will define also the flat face width. So a slack of 4mm means a flat width of 4mm.

hung2-1.pngImage Enlarger

The result is now as below and you have to define the slack to the top panel. This defines the heigth of the drawerfront. I took -4mm to keep a 3mm slack from the top panel. 

hung3-1.pngImage Enlarger

Pay attention to your cabinet height. When you use the slack to reposition the door or drawer height it impacs the volume. So in this case if  you need a cabinet height of 700 mm you have to set it to 704 mm to reach the initial height of 700 mm. This is only when you do not use a upper strip.

regards

Michel

Hello all,

 I’m a new user and my english not well, so i just can do as training by post picture step by step as Mr Michel and i can do for Door but can not for Drawing. Please show me step by step for drawing like you Mr Alex. Thank you so much

By the way, please tell me about link or which part of forum teach something for NEW user like me. I can study by youtube and some video support (but it take many time) because i just focus all thing i need to do for my job. So i want to learn by practice step by step:  draw and ask and draw and ask what i need – it’s helpful to me now

Thanks all so much

Ps: Please share to me any method learn to use Polyboard fastest (i don’t care about Stair – i just draw kitchen cabinet and furniture in bedroom : Tivi cabinet, wardrobe, bed) it’s ok

Hi Hung,

Same procedure but you have to add a inner tooling on the door to cut away the top part . This will leave a flat face on the door 

After that you can give a negative slack to the topside to extend the door back to its original position. This is not done on the added drawing.

However this is not working on double doors. The workaround is to add uprights, add single doors and make the uprights a nil panel if you do not need them to be visible. This will allow the inner tooling to work on both aligned doors.

Hi All,

Could you please advise on how I can create the below sloped cabinet door edge on Polyboard? It would be for the side of door rather than the top.

Many thanks

Yelda
