Hi Terry,

I haven’t been able to get a precise answer from the developers today.

Unfortunately they are closed up to Tuesday next because of an extended bank holiday here in France.

For the time being I can only see that the right side of the L is not getting the edging reduction. You could maybe just reduce this part in the plans ?

cheers,

Ness

Yes Ive been playing around with these things, managed to work that stuff out. Still confused over the cutlist errors though.

Unless my mind is playing tricks on me as had a long hard day today.

To set the split at a precise position you have to use the “distance” positioning option.

You can set to a precise measurement:

When you set the shelf back for the facades the split will stay at the same position so you’ll have to move it to realign to the edge.

Sorry didn’t see your last question on the edging.

I see the same error and the left shelf is not getting the edging attached.

I’ll talk to the developers tomorrow about it.

All the best,

Ness

Hi Ness

Ive downloaded your corrected cabinet. If you look at the cutlist whilst it has corrected one problem and has reduced the fixed shelf 2 to allow for the edge banding on the join,  there is still an error. It has not accounted for the edge banding to the fixed shelf 1 or the width of the shelf on fixed shelf 2.

Surely the fixed shelf 1 should be width 181.4 to allow for the edging

Fixed shelf 2 should read 181.4 by 181.4 to account for the edge banding on the join to fixed shelf 2 and and to allow for the edging linking to the front. 

Or am I missing something here? Its important I get it right as its stands the shelving will overlap the sides by 0.6

Sorry another quick question

If I want to set back these shelves from the front say 10mm how do I account for the gap that will occur at the join?

Hi Terry,

It seems as if you have a small amount of material left along the left edge of the  shelf:

I’ve moved the surface split over 1/100 and it seems to work.

Hi Ness

Ive started on designing this cabinet and immediately run into a snag. Ive added a shelf and applied surface split to the shelf.

It has now come up with a warning sign triangle and says the fixed shelf cannot be calculated. Ive worked out that it must be to do with the edgbanding and polyboard is getting confused. If I take the edgbanding off then the warning sign goes away.

As usual I will want to apply edgbanding to all exposed edges but the software is not letting me do this

Is there a way around this. Its pretty urgent if you see this soon.

 

Best

Hi Terry,

The L shaped cabs are fairly straight forwards and easy to understand.

Get back to me if you need any help.

good luck with the job!

All the best,

Ness

Thanks Ness

I think I am going to go with the corner L shaped unit and make them as one unit rather than butting two cabs up. I’ll use the surface split command to get away from having the corner pieces as individually cut  L shaped pieces as I get all my stuff cut by a sawmill and they won’t cut shapes.

I’ll then see if I can figure out using my router to do biscuits slots etc to join the pieces at there corner. Failing that might just dowel them or even use pocket hole jig and fill and paint! Probably a job for the domino eh but I don’t have one yet.

Cheers

Hi Terry,

Of course, you can mix any shaped cabinet in Project mode.

The shelves in the L-shaped are by default cut L-shaped.

If you want to make them out of 2 parts use the Surface split command.

Whether you make the cabinets turn a corner with an L-shaped cabinet or 2 assembled rectangular one depends on what you want to do.

The L-shape will be on unit. You can cut it into 2 and add assembly details to join them together.

2 separate cabinets can be butted up against one another but you’ll have no assembly details.

Can you post a sketch or photo of how you want your cabinets to look?

Like that I’ll try to see the best way to do it.

all the best,

Ness

Hi Ness

Ive been asked to make a Tv entertainment area. The base cabinet is a box cabinet that goes along one wall and finishes in the corner. Straightforward. Above it the clients want Dvd and Cd storage cabinets which will sit directly on the base cabinet. These upper cabinets will need to turn the corner in an L-shape and return above the base cabinet at a 90 degree angle.

Ive played around with the L-shape option in polyboard, I’m struggling to figure how things work. Is there a video detailing the L-shape cabinet options and turning corners. If I add shelves etc the an L shape cab are they one piece of joined etc? Can I mix up L-shape cabs with standard box cabs in project mode? Is this the best way to turn corners with polyboard or should i just make to standard units and butt them up?

Any help would be appreciated.
