Hi again, quick follow up post…

In fact the latest version is Polyboard 7.01m. This minor update from 7.01k includes a single bug fix which stopped one of our models from opening correctly (metal-wood-dining-room).

Thanks

Hi all,

A new version of Polyboard 7.01k is available for download on our website as usual.

Just to confirm again, please do not uninstall your current version. Just install the new version which automatically replaces your current version.

For those who have not yet done so, please subscribe to this topic by clicking on the Subscribe button at the bottom of the page. You’ll then automatically receive an email notification when this forum thread is updated.

This release covers both fixes and improvements.

Fixes first:

  • It fixes a bug during export when the grain direction option is activated, now the machined faces have priority.
  • It also corrects anomalies that caused Polyboard to close when deleting materials when using the Modify Style function (Magic Wand).

And now improvements:

  • A small modification was made in the order of application of the sub-methods so that the sub-method Assembled Parts applies before the Materials Style and so before the structure as well (new tab added since the version 7). Until now, the structure was deleted when the Assembled Parts sub-method was applied.
  • When saving version 6 settings and restoring in version 7, Polyboard did not respect the sort order of the sub-methods if you had changed the order in version 7. This feature has been improved and the sort order is respected, especially useful for drawer sub-methods.

Anomaly in QuickDesign Libraries:

There is an error in the drawer naming within the Tools > Preferences > Facade Components > Drawer settings. The names do not correspond to the names of the sub-methods that define the drawer dimensions (see image).

This creates an error in the design of the drawer.

In principle the correct order corresponding to the correct drawer size is the one below:

Drawer 1 > 400
Drawer 2 > 450
Drawer 3 > 500
Drawer 4 > 550

Until this error is corrected, you can make the change yourself in the Tools > Preferences menu if you wish.

Thank you for taking the time to read this briefing note and see you soon.

The Wood Designer Team

We have released a series of minor updates to Polyboard: 7.01d, 7.01d1, 7.01e and the latest 7.01f, currently available for download on our website.

These address some fixes around single panels edging, in how the post processor exports were managed, and finally in relation to how duplicate models were created within Project Mode.

Hi everyone,

Just a quick note to say Polyboard 7.01c is now available for download on the website. It fixes an issue the previous version had in using double backs in lateral zones.

All the best,

Carole

Hi everyone,

Do you want to know how to restore in Polyboard 7 all the hardware, materials, methods and manufacturing sub-methods you have created in Polyboard 6?

This video shows you how to do it.

Hi everyone,

I’m happy to announce the release of a major update to Polyboard, version 7. In fact it’s called 7.01a.

The latest version of Polyboard is available for download here

Also on that page are the new Quick Design Libraries, which include a new set of toolbars to accommodate the most commonly used new features.

For full details, read our Polyboard 7 new features article here.

Please contact us if you would like to upgrade from version 6 or earlier.

If you have any questions on the new features, please post on the Polyboard forum.

We’ll be publishing more information over the coming weeks and months too.

And as usual, within version 7 we will continue to release further improvements over time.

Thanks for reading!

This includes the Vietnamese language:

Hello everyone,

Our latest Quick Design libraries have been updated with a new extra tool bar “Quick Design 3D”.

This tool bar groups together some useful 3D commands.

To install the the latest tool bars just download the Quick Design installer and run the “InstallQuickDesign-pro-en.bat” file.

See the video “2. Installing the Quick Design environment and toolbars” on the Polyboard download page here:

https://wooddesigner.org/suppo…..-download/

Once installed Polyboard will show the tool bars like this:

qd-tool-bar.pngImage Enlarger

Each tool bar will be displayed dynamically according to mode that you are working in.

Quick Design Project:

qd-project.pngImage Enlarger

Quick Design Cabinets

Quick Design 3D

The Quick Design Methods tool bar will be displayed in cabinet edit mode and the 3D window.

We are working on some videos explaining the best way to use Quick Design tool bars.

All the best,

Ness
