Spot on Ness, that works for me.

Its more of a way of speeding up draw assembly for the fitters on site and I can use the domino as a guide by drilling a wider groove on the drawer front to allow a stiff adjustment on the panel which will alleviate all those shims and clamps which we love sooooo much.

Hi Mark,

You can set up a fitting link between the drawer front (facade) and all other parts of the drawer using a “Fittings”sub method.

Using the sub Method you can et up a relationship between the drawer front and the sides and insert dominos,

but be careful if the counter front is over passing the sides as Polyboard will not see the counter front :

Hi Ness.

Thought you were busy, I saw the move mentioned. Same here, so I understand.

Question, is there any way of, say, putting a domino on the drawer box side and into the drawer front, or is the drawer totally unlinked.

Hi Mark,

Sorry to answer so late but been busy lately as I’m (or should be) moving house and workshop this summer a big job this summer.

In the current version of Polyboard you can’t automatically place holes lining up between the drawer fronts and counter fronts.

You can of course drill a hole into the both individually using “Single Panel” fittingsbut the exact position will have to be calculated according to the sizes of each part.

Of courseif you always use the same parameters for drawers you can just apply the appropriate SP fittings and everything will line up but changing overlap, slack etc will throw the holes off .

Probably for Ness.

I need to do a fitting link that would allow a through hole in a drawer counter front lining up with a stopped hole in the drawer front that would speed up the attachment of drawer fronts to counter fronts.

Tried a few fittings, but cannot work out where the over and under passing sides would be.
