Hi Bob,

Sorry for my late reply but I seemed to have lost your question in my to do list. Thanks for reminding me.

Polyboard is not great at face frames but you can simulate your cabinet using an applied structure that you clip onto you original cabinet in Project Mode.

To do this make a simple box and just keep the back. Then set the box to the thickness of the frame and apply a framed structure to the panel. Then selecting the panel in the frame apply another framed structure. You should be able to get something like this:

L-cab-with-ff.png

The doors will not open but you can adjust all the slack values and get a nice 3D and the correct cutting lists.

I attach the cabinet file so you can see how this is done.

If you want I can make you a quick video to show how to set this up.

All the best,

Ness  

Hi Ness Thanks you so much for your reply if you can do a video that would be great All the Best Bob
