Hi Alex,

Thanks for your response with regards to me being able to update my project as it is being designed. The majority of wood which will be used in my construction will be plywood. I am more so interested in giving my clients a jpeg of their intended product with colour. Many of the attachments or fittings are not available to us here in Barbados, and thus many of the options available in the program will not be available to me.

I am interested PolyBoard because of its versality and the cutting lists which it generates. This simplifies my job greatly and your program allows me and my client to see the end result, which is added bonus as far as securing a job. I used the Modify Cabinet Style selection (magic wand) and it worked. This will allow me to choose more so colour over the actual type of wood for a project. Esthetics will captivate the client, and then the production will bring the deal home.

Regards

Brian

Hi,

The best way to update you project stay the style wand (modify cabinet style)

>Quick Design libraries

Style wand, lists the materials in your project so you can change them quickly

Editing materials editing all your projects! it is why I recommande to create news materials each times

Please see this video

I hope this is helpful! Alex

Hi Isaac,

Thank you for your prompt reply, but I tried what you indicated, and the panels in the 3D view do not show the finished look that I’m trying to achieve. I went into the libraries drop down menu, and chose panel materials, chose Plywood 0182, 3/4. In the same “Edit panel materials” library at the right hand bottom side, I then chose the “Browse” tab to choose a texture for the plywood. I chose ash 02 and clicked on the okay button thereafter. I expected the 3D view to reflect my choice, but it still showed the default wood colours that it showed when I first generated the 3D view. 

Do you have to make the choice of wood and colour prior to generating a 3D view, or does the program allow you to add varying colours and textures on the go? I ask this because if a customer wishes to view a cabinet or project with varying textures and colours, it will be a little time consuming to be going back and forth and making the changes for the customer to peruse.

Just a beginners question here, but these libraries have to be activated or subscribed to, or do these libraries exist for usage in the PolyBoard Pro version?

Regards

Brian

Hi Brian

If you access Libraries>Panel Materials, you will see the library of materials. There is a colour assigned to each material, this will show the colour the panel will be. If there is a texture applied, you won’t be able to see a visual of that texture.

When you build your libraries you can create the panel materials that you need, and you can assign your own colours/textures to those materials.

Hi there,

I would like to know if there is someway in identifying the materials to be used in a project? The program offers many variations of material types, hardware and all other elements which are used in constructing a project. Is there someway to be able to identify these items and what they look like, or do you have to scroll through all the available options to see what might suit the needs of the project. If there were some little thumbnail picture which gave you an idea or representation of the chosen item, this would be very helpful when setting up or designing the project.

Regards

Brian
