Hi Michel,

Thanks for this trick, I think that Alex did the same. 

We are waiting for the developers to have the time to add a moulded edge function.

Unfortunately they already have a long list of newbies to add and I doubt that we’ll get this quickly.

All the best,

Ness

Hi,

i did find a way to make it via a project but when the door opens in 3d the added panel does not stay in sync with the actual door.

Hi Ness,

What I did to give me the desired effect is to reduce the door thickness be 5mm and then apply a 5mm panel to the front of the door.

It now looks like what I want.

Ness if there is a better method please share for both presentation and machine files.

Regards,

Alex

Hi Ness,

It’s mainly for presentation.

Hi Alex,

Polyboard can’t create a chamfer as you want it.

You can do it but the method you use depends on why you want it.

Are you looking to create a detailed presentation or do you need machine files?

All the best,

Ness

Hi Ness/Stafan,

I want to create a 45 degree chamfered finger pull along the inside top edge of my doors.

Polyboard does have a chamfer setting that creates the finger pull I want (sort off). The only problem is the finger pull is created with a sharp edge, where I want the chamfer to start 5mm from the top front edge.

Can this be done?

Regards,

Alex
