Hi Wayne,

Happy the video was helpful.

Once you get the hang of using Manufacturing methods and setting up the libraries, fittings and rules you can set up methods that take care of all the construction details of a project automatically then you can really concentrate on what’s most important for a wood working business, which is design.

In wood working we are both technician and artist and with the right software and a bit of organisation, the design can pilot the technical and construction process and give us more time to concentrate on the  creative side of our craft.

When set up properly libraries and manufacturing methods can really go a long way to making life easier and more satisfying.

If you need help setting them up don’t hesitate to ask.

All the best,

Ness

Thank you again for the video.  You are correct that drilling the pockets for pocket screwing happens in a somewhat random fashion.  Where I was going with the question was more accurately toward creating a complete construction style to be able to add to newly designed cabinets.  I am assuming of course that I can essentially dial in my drawing methods to be commensurate with my normal construction process.  The video that you presented gives enough detail for me to be able to apply the face-frames the way that I require.  So great job on answering those questions!!!!Laugh

Hello again,

On this page you’ll find a video on how to set up face frames on cabinets.

Polyboard is calculating the panels as having the same thickness as the width of the framing so 

Depending on how you want to set them up there are therefore some limitations.

All the best,

Ness

Hi Wayne,

Happy to see you like the software.

Polyboard can’t draw pocket screws you can set up a hole drilled into the edge that will eventually give you the position of the pocket.

I don’t use pocket screws regularly myself but I would have thought that they don’t really need positioning. Can’t you just drill them approximately and screw the boards together?

Face frames are also something that Polyboard doesn’t really do.

You can trick it into drawing a face frame by adding an inner-tooling and creating a thick edge, but it’s not always exactly what you need. Here’s a video that shows how to do this   :

Front Frame and Dummy Drawer video

If you send me some details of how you want to set up your frames I could try to show you the best way to do it in Polyboard.

All the best,

Ness

Greetings 

I am having fun learning how to use this software.  I would like to know two things.  How do I customize manufacturing methods to meet my usual construction style (pocket hole drilling) and how can I put face frames on my cabinets?

Thank you as always

Wayne (Doc) Hietpas
