Hi Mark,

Your problem lies in the preferences menu, click “tools” and then “preferences”.

Then change the “pieces reference>name” option from “panel type ” to “panel name”.

Hi Ness

Yes, I seem to be picking this up quickly.

As a side thought. When I change the names of the individual panels in polyboard, they are not showing up in the cutlist with the different names, but do show on the model as such..

Any ideas.

Hi again Terry,

I sent your codes over to the developers, who are now calculating activation code, should be back to you later on today.

If you need any manufacturing document sooner, just tell me and I’ll process for you.

All the best,
Ness

Thank you downloaded the sketch up file. Ness that is perfect and exactly what I need and am aiming to achieve on many projects

so thank you for your help on this. I just need my new activation code now for the new computer to finalise the cultists if you’ve got time to do that today that would be great.

The terrace project has given me an idea for my garden so thanks for that.

 

All the best

Hi everyone,

Thanks for answering Terry, Mark.
I cannot find a better solution than what you have suggested.
Great ideas Mark!
You are now a real master of PolyBoard.

What I like about PolyBoard is that when you have mastered a few basic functionalities. You realise it’s a very versatile bit of software that can help to a lot of different things, and it’s good fun to.

Just for info and as an example of how Polyboard can do a lot of different things, I recently helped a Polyboard user build a wooden terrasse to show a customer  :

 Made with PolyBoard cabinets assembled in project mode. This user now has a great system for showing off his projects in 3-D. 

I  attached a compressed file containing the DXF and the SketchUp model.

I’ve added a few dims to give you an idea of how it will look.

Hope this is all helpful,

A big thank you to everybody participating on this forum and sharing your ideas,

All the best,
Ness

Hi Terry

For the window, just add another wall.

The same width as the window, the same height as the window and make the elevation the same as the height from the floor.

Then making sure its slightly deeper than the actual wall depth and once again make the transparency 100%.

You will get a window opening through the wall and it wont appear in the cutting lists.

Hi Terry

Im sure Ness will give some better answers, but here are mine to the two questions you asked.

1) The end panels can be made and shown as laminated panels by using the Thickness Split edit. You will have to increase the model size of the end panel to 36mm thick first to allow the second panel to be included. You can then use the Thickness Split to make the end panel consist of 2 x 18mm panels that will look the same in the visual, but give a cutlist of 2 x 18mm panels that you make up to 36mm.

2) This is an easy one if I get the idea right. I presume you want to say add blocks under each shelf to allow you to assemble correctly as spacers etc. If thats the case, you can add a new material, lets call it ‘z spacer material’ and make the transparency 100%. You can then add the blocks or anything in reality use this new material. When you look at the visual they will not show, but will appear in all cutting lists as components with the ‘z spacer material’ description which means you can allocate scrap mdf as the material etc.
