Hi Antony,

Not you can’t dimension de internals in Polyboard, only the external dimensions are possible directly.

You can trick Polyboard into dong this, have a look at this video:

However it’s also possible to export the 3D DXF file into CADD or SketchUp and add dimensions.

All the best,

Ness

Thank you Stefan.

In the workshop docs can we get the 2D measurements of the cabinets internals in the elevation view apart from the cabinet dimensions….

Hi Antony, you’re right about the free shape/custom shape command. This isn’t available as Polyboard Lite is limited to square and rectangular units.

The parts drawings aren’t shown either – as they are always square/rectangular, you simply receive the dimensions in the cut list.

You should be able to access multi views via the File > Partial Views dialogue box, once you’ve got a project open. This video provides more information on how to set it up: https://wooddesigner.org/membe…..ultiviews/

All the best, Stefan

Hi

We’ve purchased the software and started working on it. As it is the light version, I think, many features are either not working or I’m not able to make it work.

Features I couldn’t use are

Multiple views print on project mode

Parts drawings

Cabinet in custom shape

Kindly help

Warm regards

Antony S Brighton
