Hi again, the optimisation isn’t included with this CabinetFile service. You would need to buy at least OptiCut 50. Here’s a link to our OptiCut sales page for more information. Best regards, Stefan

Hello SlickDesigns,

I am uploading the plans, cutlist, and dxf files for “ProperPaws-Front-Counter-Final” project file so you can have a feel for how it looks.

I just have few questions and comments:

1. If you started working on a cabinet in a Cabinet Mode, you can easily put it into project – Have both project and cabinet file opened and while being in you cabinet file click on Project/Cabinet Switch (image “”1.jpg) – the cabinet will appear in you Model List (bottom left on the screen by default (i think))

2. You havent added any fitting links – I am not sure how will you connect all the panels. Are you working with CNC machine or are you planning to drill the holes manually?

3. Cutlist is included in .pdf but if you want to have it in excel (for exporting it later as .csv) I am including .txt file which you can import into excel ( – in case you dont have access to tutorials on this site (use semicolumn as delimiter)

4. To make the front covering 2 or more units, you can: 1. construct a unit in 1 cabinet file that is looks like few units (Ness, please help with that, you made a video about it i think). 2. you can make a front of unit 1 overpass the side by the same amount as the width of unit 2. 3. You can add a 3rd unit that had only the front panel and is the size and shape of the fronts unit 1 and 2.

Unfortunately there is no inter-cabinet fitting links in PolyBoards at this moment

Cheers!

Hi Evan,

Please just post the final version of your Polyboard file here and request your CabinetFile.

We’ll process it and upload the cut list and plans right here too on the forum for you to download and use.

Thanks, Stefan

Hello all,

Rafal, that worked perfectly thank you for such detailed instructions, my only remaining question as far as my model is concerned is if there is a way to join two cabinets together for a seamless front panel?  I would like to combine the “desk” and “pos” units. If this is possible please advise how to do so.

also please point me in the right direction on where on the forum to submit my project to receive my build documents.

Thanks in advance!!!!

Hi both,

Thanks for your very good answer to SlickDesign’s question Rafal.

Just for information, plinths can only exist if the upright panel is underpassing the bottom. This is programming problem that might be fixed in future versions, and Rafal’s work around is a good way to go.

You can also get aroung this by changing the links/asssembly type to groove:

This leaves the priority as overpassing and doesn’t erase the plinth.

hope this is interesting,

All the best,

Ness

Hi SlickDesigns,

I had the same problem and here’s the solution: 

1. Make front panel overpass the bottom – click on the front panel and then in the Properties tab > Links > expand Bottom > choose Priority to Overpassing.

2. Your front plinth will dissapear. I am not sure why it does that, but here is what you can do: click on the Plinth Zone and add a double back. Similar, if you change your side panels to overpass the bottom: side plinths will dissapear, but you can add them back as Uprights.

The cutlist will now call your plinth as Double Back, which in case of a big project might be confusing and here is how you can fix it:

go to Tools > Preferences > Customize Panel Types > under Double Back you can rename one of them (or add more just by changing the number about double back types) to fx. plinth, or something relevant to you. Now when you put a Double Back as a plinth, be sure to select the type that you added/ renamed.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Hello,

This is my First time using Polyboard and Im looking to use it as a full time design solution for my business. Attached is the cabinetfile for a store front counter. Everything looks great on it except i cant seem to make the front panel overpass all other panels so that you cant see any seams when viewing from the front and keep the plinth in place. Does any one have any ideas how to solve this? Also is this the proper place to submit for cut list and plans and cut maps?
