Thanks Ness.


I can probably work it out from what you say. However I really like the videos and I seem to understand better from them as the visual side seems to help and Ive subscribed to the youtube page. So yes In truth the videos are a godsend but obviously we can't expect you to make one for every single subject.

I do think though that I'm up to speed on quite a bit of the software but the libraries and other motte powerful functions are much harder to get to grips with without some explanation from 'those that know'. I.e you could spend hours trying to master something that can be shown in minutes.

I'd like a vidoe.....but no pressure or rush. I think videos and explanations of the more sophisticated side to the software are needed for me......and probably others in time. 

Thanks for the heads up.

Hi Terry,

The best and easiest way to do this is to use the Libraries>Sub-Method>Box Full command.

Once you have set up a method up just apply it to any cabinet and Polyboard will rebuild according to the rules you have set up.

this is a very powerful function of Polyboard.

Tell me if you need a video to show how to set this up.


All the best,

Hi Ness

Ive worked out the way I want to build my drawer boxes for the wardrobe and have specific 

criteria such as making the sides 12mm larger in height than the back/front etc to create a space 

for the undercount runners and fixings brackets etc.

I'll be working out shortly how to enter this into Polyboard. My question is 

to save me time in the future what would be the best way to create some kind of drawer box template specific

to these runners and drawer box construction.....should I just create a new cabinet? If so how do I then apply

this cabinet etc (drawer box template) to future carcasses
