We’ve created a range of new Polyboard video tutorials for you this month. A bit of a mix of features, tips to design faster, and also one to help you manage your Quick Design libraries you should definitely watch.
Just a quick reminder that you can click on this link to find these and all our other Polyboard video tutorials.
Basic Zone Management
First up, a nice video that runs through some common zone management tips to make many aspects of the design process that little bit faster. Zones describe the spaces within your cabinets. You select these to apply elements like doors, drawers, shelves etc.
We cover how to make these selections, and also how to copy a design you’ve already done.
It’s now possible to very easily apply a halving joint in Polyboard. What’s more, this type of joint can include a Free Division, which unlike a standard upright or shelf, can be manipulated to sit at any angle you want.
You can create some quite complex structures this way, and again all the complicated calculations are done for you. You’ve got instant output of the parts with all cut angles.
We hope you like this neat addition to Polyboard’s design suite. You can now select the drawer internal space and add uprights or angled Free Divisions. A very fast way to add internal storage partitions including for kitchen, office and walk in wardrobe solutions.
Modify Style Command
A fast way to change all instances of a specific material or 3D accessory in your project.
Link your Quick Design Libraries to Polyboard
When you download and install first Polyboard, then the Quick Designer libraries that go with it, the two will automatically link to each other.
If you move the libraries or rename them this link will be broken. It’s very easy to solve, this video shows you how.
You might also have custom libraries, or share libraries across different computers using a cloud storage service. You would use this same method to link to them.
