Hi Mark,

Yes we hope that freeing up DXF export for all pro users will help make the software more flexible for presentations.

I’ll be waiting for your filler problem.

all the best,

Ness

Hi Ness

That is great news on the DXF export.

I will upload a little plan to show what I need to get around with the fillers. In fact I have sorted it in a way. I just remove the wall and that means the snapping works, but I would like your input just in case there is another way.

Thats brilliant news for everyone Ness. I normally get by with Polyboard but on some projects the ability to play around with a sketch up file to add a few dims makes a difference, especially to some customers as I am finding. I was very happy with my purchase of Polyboard pro but this is the icing on the cake.

Im not yet an expert on sketchup!……but Im getting by

 

Cheers

Hello Mark and Terry,

I was surprised that you both had the 3D DXf export from the pro version so I’ve been talking to the developers about it this week end.

So some good news, the 3D DXF export has been activated in all versions  so even the Lite version will now export models in 3D-DXF for use in SketchUp and CAD.

All the best,

Ness

PS: Mark, didn’t get the details for the fillers video, do you still need it?

Hi Terry

Thought I was getting special treatment…. Obviously not… Thats great though.

Yes, I do the sketchup if I have time and the job warrants the extra effort. If not I use the Polyboard method.

The benifit I find with the ployboard method is that I share a dropbox folder with the client that contains all the polyboard files and with individual cabinets in there they accept the job from them, which is exactly how we make them so no arguments after.

I keep pictures of stock mouldings that we run from the spindle, which are added to the folder to show moulding choice as polyboard does not do this as you know, but to spend the extra time in sketchup sometimes is not worth the extra effort.

Hey Mark thanks for both replies and both very useful.

It is bizarre but I have just tried a DXF export and it works!!!!! I had no idea I had that facility….in fact Im pretty sure I’ve tried it in the past  and that option was greyed out. Perhaps something to do with he latest update? Anyway Im delighted and am happily adding dimensions in sketchup now which is brilliant for me.

I will also use the method in your other reply too.

Fantastic

Cheers MarkLaugh

Hi Terry

I thought about how we show our designs and if im not going to export to sketchup, which is another step to take each time, I send a copy of each individual cabinet with measurements from polyboard in multi model style.

See attached, it may be useful to you.

Hi Terry. (Ness)

It may be me, but I have the Pro version and I can export DXF.

Thanks for reply Ness

I didn’t realise that that buy buying the pro version that I could have unlimited DXF exports so that will be useful. 

It would be fantastic if eventually the Pro version could export to DXF too. 

Thanks alot

Hi Terry,

I can understand that you often need to show the inner dims to customers.

We limit the dxf/SketchUp files to one a month for regular members but if you have bought a Pro Polyboard we can give you an unlimited number of dxf/SketchUp files (within reason), Just send me the Polyboard file when you need one.

We are hoping that future versions of Polyboard Pro will include DXf export, but this will require quite a lot of coding so won’t be ready for sometime yet.

All the best,

Ness
