    Poly Shape
    In This Topic

    The Poly Shape can be used to create custom individual parts, either by specifying a height and width, specifying a series of up to 20 points, or loading a DXF.


     Changing Machined Face

    The Poly Shape displays which face is currently being machined on the Part Machining > Machining page.

    This can be changed by using the Flip Machined Face checkbox.



     Import Points From Timber Panelling

    The Poly Shape can import the shape of a Timber Panelling cabinet on the Cabinet Details > Border page using the Import Shape From Timber Panelling button (which is only be visible when the border style of the shape is set to advanced).

    To use this option :-

    1. First you need to use the Export To Polyshape button in the Timber Panelling cabinet;
    2. Then you can click the Import Shape From Timber Panelling button in the Poly Shape;
    3. Finally, you just need to paste in the points that were copied from the Timber Panelling cabinet.
      • This will change the shape of the Poly Shape to match the points in the Timber Panelling cabinet.


     Remove Original Border When Using Offset

    When using a border offset in the Poly Shape, you can now remove the original border shape, instead of machining both sets of points as a single shape with a cutout.

    This allows you to more easily create a shape that is offset inwards or outwards from the original set of points, without having to manually calculate all the new points.
