Hello everyone,

It’s great to see everyone taking time to help Terry.

Thanks to all.

I’ve just shot this video to show how to set up the kick frames that cabs snap to with overlap.

So hope this is helpful.

I’m uploading another video to show how to manage the edging, so should be up in an hour or 2.

To get the cutting lists to add extra width and length you can use the Over Sizing options:

All the best,

Ness

Hi Terry

Heres your 25mm rebate plinth.

It will clip to any unit with the back flush and the front, left and right showing a 25mm recess.

Just adjust the model to the exact size of your unit above and it will work.

Hi Ness

Ive got a project coming up in August and Im working on the plans right now. The project is 3 separate items of bedroom furniture

A wardrobe, a triple set of drawers fitted under a sloping ceiling and a vanity unit/dressing table with drawers underneath. Im pretty keen on using the polyboard to its full potential on this work including all the hardware, edgbanding and drillings etc and I would like later on to possibly present this work in sketchup if can find the time to learn some basic funtions of it.

Ive attached the cab file so perhaps when you have time you can help me with some it. A lot of what I do is the same type of work so Ive set myself a target to get some decent cabinets/wardrobes etc set up properly so I can eventually just use them as templates for myself. I’ll hopefully just need to change dimensions etc.

First question. I made a kickframe as a separate carcass hoping that it could be re-usuable. I imported it into the project mode along with the main wardrobe carcasses and some deco end panels. Ive managed finally to get it all to clip onto each other etc and got all the end panels set up correctly. I normally make my kickframes around 25mm smaller all round than the footprint of the carcasses. This allows me a little wiggle room and helps me avoid skirting boards etc. When I drag the main carcasses onto the kickframe it snaps to the front. I dont want this…..I want the front of the carcass to be in front of the kickframe by approx 20mm. When the doors are added this gives me a recess on the front of around 40mm. I then add a small ‘scribed’ piece over the top of the kickframe which takes care of any uneven flooring. This planted over piece can be 6mm or 12mm doesnt really matter it fits between the 2 deco end panels and thus covers the kickframe and its joinery.

Second question 

Ive made the deco end panels @ 586mm x 2000mm which is the carcass depth plus 18mm door depth and this height covers the total height of the plinth and carcase plus an additonal 18mm so it goes up and meets the top deco panel. For presentation purposes to the client this is perfect but in real life i would cut the depth and height say 5mm bigger to allow for out of plumb etc to the wall and the floor so I could scribe these to fit. Can I oversize these panels without effecting the presentation?

Final question sorry and I know you covered it to some degree in a video but i couldn’t figure it out. If you open the doors on the wardrobe and wanted to apply 6mm edging to ALL the edges that ‘you see’ on the inside of the carcase and all 4 sides of both doors what the best way to do this quickly.

Thanks for any help you can offerness2.pngImage Enlarger

Hi Terry,

 

Cant help with the others but for the kicker i think if you remove the front then add a double back set back what you want from the front it should clip on the right way then.

Ps are you interested in doing a bit of work for me in london? Drop me a line if so, im way to busy and could use an extra pair of hands.
