Design Furniture with free form shapes

When you start a new cabinet Polyboard proposes a variety of basic shapes that you can modify to fit your specific sizes and parameters.

These basic shapes are the plan with a constant height.

The basic ones are simple rectangular cabinets, L shaped cabinets and corner shaped cabinets.

Each shape is parametric and can be resized, adjusted and fitted out as you want. If the plan view of your project requires another shape you can use the Free Shape option.

In this option, you can let your imagination go wild and draw any shape. The shape you draw can only be  made of straight lines. Once drawn Polyboard enables you to qualify each line as either the front, back, or side element of your piece of furniture.

This enables the program to know how each element of your shape will behave when you apply Polyboard functions. Here’s a short video to show how to use this very powerful function to design a custom piece of furniture.
