Hi,

Have try you active option “Keep the grain continuity”

Open your cabinet, press and hold on “Shit+Ctrl” then select all frontage then right click and select option

This option adds an export-specific rotation option

Hi,

 

for this a need to analysis your cabinet to understand which could lead to a different rotation from the other doors

Can you upload your cabinet /or project

Good morning Alexandre

Thanks for the response, that has solved the grain direction issue.  The main issue is that second door is rotated when it comes into the nesting.  In the picture I sent of the nesting the the hinge holes on the second door should be at the bottom of panel otherwise I cannot grain match the front panels. Can you let me know how to make this come out in the correct orientation?

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

Sorry I can’t see picture attached

Can you export and upload your Post-Pro setting?

In principle, it’s not necessary to have the grain direction in the import, as Polyboard is able to orient the part according to constraints.

A quick reminder of the rotation options in this post

https://wooddesigner.org/forum…..direction/

remember when we did the session and tested this with Michel the otpion should have been on “Grain direction horizontal”.

the cabinet direction-test.pb-cab on previous post should help to test the best option for you

Cheers, Alexandre

Good afternoon Gents

In the attached document there are 2 pictures.  The first shows the cabinet which has a wood grain and consists doors at the bottom, drop flaps in the middle and then a draws at the top.  In the second picture there is the what I get in Maestro when I nest the XCS files.  The issues have been as follows:

1.  The grain direction did not come through to Maestro in the XCS so I had to apply it manually to each piece.

2.  In the second image you will notice the hinges holes for the doors are at the top for both even though they are opposing doors.  The second door should have the hinges in the correct opposing position otherwise it is impossible to do the grain match up each side of the unit face.  

The second issue may be related to the first but I am not sure but have I missed some options that I need to set to get the output correct in direction and orientation?

Thanks

Patrick
