Hi Christopher

 

the view is always as if you look at it from the left side of the cabinet and this for every panel

Hi Michel, 

Is this as you look at the design on your computer then?

If a draw has sides (Left and Right) the top edge would be the one you see when you open the draw?

The right edge is the front edge of the cabinet facing you as you look at it?

The left edge is the back of the cabinet if you where looking at if from behind?

The bottom edge would be the bottom of the side of the draw if you where to look at it from underneath?

If you could confirm that would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks

Hi Christopher

 

I understand that it sounds confusing but you can see it that way 

 

The right edge is the front side of the panel 

the left edge is the backside of the panel 

the top is top side 

the bottom is bottom side 

Whatever the length of it.

 

you cannot change this in polyboard but what you can do is export the cutting list as a CSV file and import it in a template that you made in excel. In that template, you can call the edge face the way you understand the best and assign the column coming from PB accordingly. 

 

Here is a link to a video showing this

Hey guys, 

When I export the cut list and send it to excel the edging is labelled as Top, Right, Bottom and Left. 

I have never heard it called this before, I normally have it as Long or Short Edge. 

Can someone shed light on how Top relates to the edge? Is top the short edge or long edge? 

Its very confusing……please help. 

Is there any way to change this?

Thanks 

Chris
