Hi Rafal,

The edge angle is printed on the project print out:

and also drawn into the dxf file of the part.

The edging material is calculated at it's maximum length.

Hope this is helpful,

Ness

Hi Ness,

As on attached image: Example of how we would specify edging for this panel would be: 1 - 2mm ABS, 2 - 2mm ABS, 3 - [some amount of degrees, for example: 15°], 4 - no edge. All of this information I need on an Excel sheet. My question: where within the program can I find the information about this edge angle?

P.S. The wardrobe on this image is sloped wardrobe.pb-cab from Quick Design Libraries.

Hi Rafal,

I don't really understand your question;

are you asking if you can get drawings or indication of the 45° angle on the edging materials?

Polyboard will calculate edging the same length as the total board length, so if a board is 1m long and mitred the edging will always be 1m too.

I am having a problem with exporting the data about the egde angles. Lets say I have a miter joint and I want to export the data about the edge angles for the cutting list. How do I do that?

My work-around for now was to create an egde material, call it "45°" and create an edge style sub-method. It works for 90° joints but what about if I have non-90° angles?

Thanks in advance. wink
