Thanks Alex,

It would be a very useful function to be able to hide various elements of the cabinet, be it doors, drawers, faceframes. This would enable drawings to be produced for just the items that are either manufacture by ourselves, or indeed if we use other suppliers. I look forward to seeing this in a future update.

Kind regards

Tom

Hello,

After a few tests I can't find a quick solution on polyboard to keep only the boxes without modifying when the Frontage are set to OverAll.

I will ask the developer team soon to see what they say.

To date it is possible to export to DXF 3D for software such as Autocad / Sketchup and delete the frontages and without the tooling.

Cheers, Alexandre

Hello,

I need to supply carcass drawings to suppliers to make up our carcasses only. When I draw up a cabinet or project in polyboard I draw up the job as a whole i.e carcass, faceframe, doors, drawers etc. When supplying drawings to suppliers there is too much information. Is there a way that i can take a complete drawing/ project and just dimension/ show the carcass without any additional information?

I am aware I could just exclude anything other than carcasses from the drawings. However this would then require two sets of drawings. This, as I have found from experience is then an opportunity for errors. There is also the issue when using faceframes (doublebacks), that when removed the panels of the carcass extend by the thickness of the faceframe, therefore giving a false dimension.

I suppose I am looking for a hide option for all parts that I would like to exclude from a drawing?

Kind regards

Tom
