Hi,

 

I'm providing you with this practice to see if it could be similar to your idea.

First, I have removed your drawer and double-back from the front to add an entire zone single drawer with front only.

Turned your two drawers frontages as nil panel and added these two fronts to the new full drawer front, divided with a thickness split

All the best,

Alex

Sorry, I must not have explained my first message well enough. It was not the drawers I was having issue with it was the vertical dividers, the 4 pieces highlighted in the image below.

I have not got them to be able to groove into both the front and back panel, as shown, and have got the solid wood legs drawn. I am not able to include the drawer box though as Polyboard is not allowing a drawer to be put on a piece that is not a frontage. Here I have used a free shape that is a rectangle with each piece being a "side" as a type. This has allow the vertical divisions to be grooved into the "front" panel.

Is there a way to also be able to get a drawer box in this model and to have the fittings for the drawer box included. I have currently got the drawer fittings as a single panel fitting, but I am unsure if I have located them properly. The end goal of this model is to have a design drawn that we can then tweak the size to the customers requirements (likely just in catalogue mode).

My current solution is to have a separate model for the drawers which can be nested at the same time. But this doesn't allow any fitting links to be included between the drawer and cabinet.

Thanks Alex, we thought about doing that as an option for the drawers but as the front piece is painted we decided it would be better to just make a separate rawer box and front.

 

I am not sure I understand you explanation on having the vertical divisions grooving into the front panel. Could you explain a little more?

 

Cheers

Hi,

After some analysis of your furniture, I can see a lot of little tricks to get around certain limits.

That being said, we are no longer a few steps away from a good solution.

Why not imagine that the original facade would be a Nil panel,

The counter-face would be the final facade

like this all part can be grooved with the face (counter-face)

this remains just an idea to be tested in more detail

 

All the best, Alex

Hi,

I have not forgotten your request and I need to do some more research to try and find out what you are looking for.

I will do this as soon as possible.

 

All the best, Alex

I am struggling to drawer a cabinet exactly how we want it to be made . I have tried a few different ways into tricking Polyboard to do it but have failed so far, this unit is going to be the base for a table - the legs are not shown. I am getting stuck as I would like to have 2 drawers inset into the front panel - shown ghosted as these will be a standard component between multiple units.

I would like it so the vertical divisions are grooved not only into the back panel but also into the front panel. Polyboard is either not letting me add the drawers as it is not a frontage. Or not letting me add the groves in the front panel because I have tricked it by using a double back. I am sure there must be a way to do this, any ideas?

I have tried using a free shape with the front edge split into multiple sections, but I am getting issues of only being able to recess not groove to the Bisectrix(??) Main priority. Attached is the closest I have got using a double back that is grooved into the vertical sections.
