Hi,

Make sure selected manufacturing methods allow the cabinet creation,

Try methods with I-00 cabinet sub-methods

Another point check you don’t have point at the limit of and curve

Hi Isaac, the cabinet is small. 140mm by 340mm.

I redrew it and got it to import, it told me it was converting the curves to polylines but when i tried to tell it what was a frontage/side/back it failed to generate.

 

Any ideas.

 

Thanks, Conor

Hi Conor,

Please check the units you are drawing in with your CAD program. When I opened in a CAD program, I realised the drawing was very small. See image 1. When I changed the units to inches in polyboard, I was able to import the file.

Please also refer to image 2. Keep an eye on this area, in my CAD program the drawing was not closed. Polyboard won’t like these two points being so close together.

I hope this helps,

Hi all, its been a while since I was on the forum and I can’t see where I search the Polyboard forum.

My issue is, I’m haver trouble importing a dxf file into free shape cabinet.

I’ve altered a dxf drawing that imported previously with no issues, saved it and it will not import.

I can see it in the import dxf section but it doesn’t work.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Conor
