Hi Gary,

To change the material used for the framing …

First set up a new bar material, then select the framed panel and open it’s properties.

The individual parts should appear listed. Click the part that you want to change and open the Materials list:change-bars.pngImage Enlarger

 

In the list select the new material that you want to apply to the part.

What do you mean by webbing?

All the best,

Ness

Thanks for your help. 

I have built the first headboard and now wish to make changes to the design but I don’t know enough to do it.  Been going through videos to get up to speed.  However, my PolyBoard doesn’t seem to have the components that you have in the videos.  I think that I have installed the libraries that were recommended.  Is there a way to verify that?  Also, where is the best place to ask for clarification on the tutorials?  I.e. is there a forum for the tutorials?

One of the things that I want to do is change the frame from 2×4 to 1×4 and 1×2 poplar.  The outside frame would be 1×4 and the verticals will be 1×2.  How do I do that?

Second, I want to remove the plywood and replace with webbing.  Perhaps I just remove the plywood and ignore the webbing as far as the PolyBoard design goes?

Hi Gary,

Here’s a model for your headboard.

This is made of a single panel (I used a double back panel and eliminated all the others).

I set up the panel material as 1/4″ ply and the bar material as 2×4

The panel is then divided into 2 sheets using “thickness split”.

Then one sheet  is made into a framed structure of 2×4 with one cross bar using the “Assembly” command.

Then the internal panel of the first frame is made into an “assembly” with 3 uprights.

The other sheet is cut into 2 using “surface split” and the lower panel declared “nil”.

You will have to add assembly details to the framed parts.

As you can see the cutting list are all set up correctly and you can resize at will.

hope this is helpful.

All the best,

Ness

Hi Gary, the drawing didn’t get attached. Here’s a post about file upload size restrictions, resizing and other options if you’re having difficulties:

Drawing of the headboard frame.  Plywood panel would be attached over the 48″x63″ section.

I am a volunteer with a non-profit in the US.  We have been given a large amount of upholstery fabric and I am hoping to use some of it in the construction of headboards, a portion of which will be covered with foam and fabric.  The initial design is straightforward but I would like to have this documented in Polyboard so that I can easily modify for a new design.  The wood frame will be made of 2 x 4 with a smooth surface made of 1/4 ” thick plywood.  The side/leg boards will be 2×4 63″ long.  There will be 2 horizontal 2×4, 1 at top and 1 to define an area of 48″ height from top of upper horizontal to bottom of lower horizontal.  I will add 2 or 3 more vertical 2×4 to add strength.  Then cover the 63 x 48 area with 1/4″ plywood.

How do I define something like this in Polyboard?

Once this wood portion is constructed I intend to cover the 63″ x 48″ area with 2″ foam and fabric.  The legs will be covered with fabric only. 

Thanks.
