If you only take 1 material to represent the complete panel it will be only 1 panel of a specific thickness. You will not have any information on the veneer as you do not actually apply it. You can also not give a different shade on the inside and outside of the panel. 1 panel is 1 texture only.
The solution is to use the thickness split so that you get all information you actually need. You just need to use the information that is the most appropriate for you.
Another solution would be to create 2 panels. 1 called inside inside and the other one inside-outside. This will generate 2 different cutlist for each material and based on that you can define how many veneers and which type you need. This of course remains a manual calculation and the visual will not be able to reflect correctly on the inside-outside panel as there is only 1 texture possible per material.
Here is an example with the 2panel types
Ok. I got the answer. My one problem might not be served.
Instead of splitting the panel into 3 pieces, i will go with one panel including the thickness of inner laminate and outer laminate.
Now my question, is it possible to give different shades for the same panel’s each sides? In that case my cutting list will look like something
one side lam and one side veneer panel – 2 pieces
2 side laminate panel – 2 pieces
If I can give different shades on either sides, i thnk i might be able to manage.
I think you got me. Please let me know if you did not understand my requirement. We might need to have a 121.
I liked your software very much and somehow i need to install it after i meet all my requirement successfully.

You can use the structure with the veneers but Polyboard will see them as different materials on the cutting list. That is something that can not be changed.
However, in your documents, you find the cutting list specific for the veneers and for your panels. If you used the grouped cutting list it will quantify the qty of the same pieces to be cut.
In fact, you have all information that you need.
The costing report is giving an overview of the overall qty of material used expressed in surface area per material. If you want the price to match you will have to indicate a price for each material so that the added price results in the price of the finished panel.
Hi Alex Thank you.
But the question is in that case how can I Get materials numbers like how many inner laminate, and veneers I need. I will get the single ctting list if i give the thickness into 18mm thick but the point is whether i can get the details of area or numbers separately.
Please check the reference image.

Your work with the structure is fine, but the easiest way is to change the sub-method of materials by a sub-method with single panel whose thickness includes veneer Panels.
But you can exclude them from the PP export by deselecting the Exportable option in the materials panel.
All the best, Alex
I am a new user of polyboard.
I am from India. My detail is like I have to split the panel into three parts which means outer 1mm surface material+16mm center portion ie plywood+ 0.7mm inside material.
But the output of the cutting list are all separate like 1mm surface, 16mm and 0.7mm. How can I take the combined panel structure cutlist? The reason is before we cut the panel, we sandwich 16mm plywood with 1mm or 0.7mm etc as surface material. Once its sandwiched, we need to act it as single panel structure before we cutlist is given to panel saw.
For your understanding i have uploaded the cutlist and the polyboard file.
Thanks and Regards,
