Hi Jack,

Thanks for buying Polyboard Lite.

Here’s the activation code:

X26E – B19W – 5CM1 – 36QQ

I hope that you’ll be happy with it. I think you’ll find that although it’s doesn’t have all the functionality of Polyboard Pro, it’s really amazing value for money.

You’ll be able to get cutting lists and 3D DXF output that you can use to dimension in Draftsight or SketchUp.

You can also get around the rectangular shape limit by designing in Polyboard free version and loading the project into Polyboard Lite to have the output.

As you can’t install 2 versions of Polyboard 6 on the same computer, if you want both free and activated versions on the same computer,  I’d suggest that you install Polyboard 5 to design with.

To download Polyboard 5 with its Quick Design  libraries use this link:


You can install this on the same computer as your activated Polyboard Lite.

In all cases if you upgrade to Polyboard Pro within 30 days you just pay the difference in price.

After that we’ll take back your Polyboard Lite at 70% of the price you paid.

So I hope you enjoy using your new Polyboard.

All the best,

Hi Jack,

There would no problem to build the cabinet we worked on in Polyboard Lite.

However Polyboard Lite doesn’t manage hardware and shapes so there would be certain things that would have to be added by hand or manual editing of drawings. This not a big deal for simple cabinets if you are building the project yourself by hand.

The main problem for your project is that Polyboard Lite doesn’t print the part by part drawings : this means that certain details like the dados and tenons are not drawn and positioned. To have detailed plans you have to export the 3D DXf file and add dimensions in CAD. However your project is quite complex and contains a lot of parts and assembly details so this would be quite tedious.

Note that you would also not get the groove and dowel stop, this is hardware so you’d have to add manually in CAD.

All in all I wouldn’t recommend Polyboard Lite for a project like yours.

You would need at least the Polyboard Pro version to have the parts dimensioned or continue using the free version with our CabinetFile service.

hope this is helpful,

All the best,

Based on working with me for a couple of weeks, do you think PolyBoard Lite will serve my requirements?
