Hi Lucas,

As promised here’s the video

Note that you can’t mitre the drawer fronts into the sides so you have to use the counter front.

In the video, I’ve made the fronts disappear with a transparent material, that appears in the cutting lists but can just be ignored.

However, this material affects the total depth of the cabinet and you should either add the thickness of the fronts to the total depth or make the drawer “built in”.

All the best,

Ness

Yesss! thank you thank you!!

I did manage to apply the new manufacturing method to my design! 

The only thing I need to do is getting rid off the false face as I usually leave the dovetails expose on the face but I will wait for your video on manufacturing method for that.

Thank you so much I’m very happy now!

Hi Lucas,

Here’s the link to the video

and I’ve uploaded again the example file.

I’ll post a video on Manufacturing Method tomorrow.

All the best,

Hi Ness, 

Many thanks for your prompt response, very much appreciated!

Mitre join sounds the solution to the dovetail construction to get the right dimension in the cutting list although this feature doesn’t seem to be available in the light version which I may upgrade as soon I’m confident using this one.

I couldn’t find the example file you’ve attached, does it meant to show in your message or does it goes somewhere else?

Although I’ve tried to set up the drawer manufacturing method in sub-method I can get it to do what I need ,so yes please I do take your offer on the explanatory video. 

on this subject will be extremely useful, I wouldn’t bother you if I could do it myself but I can’t work it out..

Thanks!

Hi Lucas,

You can’t draw dove tails with Polyboard, but you can set up joints as mitres so that you have the correct cutting lists.

I’m uploading a quick video showing how to do this, I’ll post the link when it’s online.

You can also set up the drawers using a sub-method, much faster than having to set up each individual drawer.

I attach an example file that I set up for you drawer runners using a sub-method called Hefele.

You can restore this method to your own Polyboard by going into Libraries>sub-methods>drawers, select the actual method and click the “duplicate” button to save the method to your libs.

tell me if you need a video to explain how to set up and use a method.

Hope this is helpful.

All the best,

Ness

Hello Ness and woodworking community,

This is my first topic as I am struggling to set up the drawer manufacturing method as I need it, I’ve attached a sketch up model I have drawn with my poor skills in that software but I’m sure it will give an idea of what I want to achieve. 

Most of the time I dovetail the front and sides of my drawers and the back is hold with screws from the sides and sits on the bottom which is recessed into the sides and 13mm above the base as I regularly use concealed drawer runners (http://www.hafele.co.uk/shop/p…..4618/10352) looking at this link you will know exactly what I’m talking about as isn’t easy to explain this sort of things when English is not my mother tongue, but I tried :)  

If I can’t do this it means the cutting list and the layout in the sheet material won’t be accurate therefore pricing too!

 

 Please help!

 Thanks
