Hi Bart,

Thanks for your reply.

Ok I understand.

With the demo version, you can’t see the price of the cabinet or project even though you become a premium subscriber. You will see it only if you have the full version so if you have bought the software.

As you have a CNC machine, if you subscribe for Premium support we can send you DXF Files and you’ll have to set up the tool paths for your machine.

Hope it will help,

Carole

Hi Bart,

If you subscribe and ask for the CabinetFile service, we will send you PDF’s files including cutting list, 3D view, plans.

BUT if your customer asks for modifications, you will have to pay again to get the new manufacturing documents.

We can offer an installment plan that can help you to buy the full version.

It’s possible now to pay in 3, 6 time for a purchase under £2000 and in 9 or 12 times over £2000.

Let me know if you’d like to place an order and I will send you a quote with a payment link.

Best regards,

Carole

  

Hi Carole,

Thank you for the reply. I appreciate it that we can pay in 9 to 12 terms (I need the cnc version), but I can not justify the expense for only a couple (4-6) projects a year. If cabinet business grows,  then that might become an option.

With the demo version, I can not see the price of the cabinet or project. When becoming a premium subscriber, does this option becomes available without asking the production files?

Best Regards, 

Bart.

Hi,

I downloaded the free version of Polyboard and I do like it. My main business is interior renovation / remodeling. For the moment I do not have enough cabinets to make, to justify the purchase of Polyboard (between 5 – 10 projects a year). Therefore seems the Cabinet File Sefvice a good option for me. I know I can not print anything with the free version, but is it possible to :

* Send drawings with different views with dimensions to the customer ( copy and paste?)

* Have the price for the project calculated ?

I needs these so I can at least show the customer the design and what it will cost, BEFORE I send the files to be processed. 

=> The customer might want some changes to the design

=> The customer might nog agree at all.

Thanks in advance for the reply,

Bart.

Hello Albert,

Sorry for the late reply, it is the holiday period over here so most of our team are out of office.

To answer your questions:

1.) Grain direction and grain matching doors, drawers, fillers and finished ends across multiple cabinets.

Polyboard and OptiNest will match grain across a cabinet façade but not across several cabinets. If using Polyboard and OptiCut this feature is not yet implemented but the developers  are working on it for a future release.

2.) Ability to control which side of the cabinet I want to place the fittings/connectors since I like no visible connector type of cabinet.

Yes it’s a standard feature in Polyboard to be able to have complete control on where and how fittings are applied.

3.) Ability to add formula-based machining operations for horizontal bi-fold doors’ swing-up mechanisms such as the Blum Aventos HF, and other similar types of mechanisms on all inside faces of a cabinet including partitions, shelves and the backside of the doors (including fixed doors also like on a blind corner cabinet). Its formula syntax must be able to access parametric values from the cabinet like door gaps/reveals, sheet thickness, width and height of cabinet to calculate the accurate position of the holes/pockets. A challenging example for this would be 2 carcase sharing a common upper door and a lower door with a bi-fold swing up mechanism (like the Aventos-HF Blum) on each carcase. Basically the two cabinets will look like a single cabinet from the outside.

The answer to this question is yes. Polyboard uses a sort of formula based placement of hardware elements called “rules”. This allows placement of hardware that dynamically adjusts to cabinet sizes and configurations. 

4.) Option for the nesting software to optimize cuts for speed, which would mean reduced direction changes on a router bit and thereby speed up cutting and more importantly reduce wear on the bit and on the gantry.

No this feature doesn’t exist in Polyboard or OptiNest.

5.) Ability to nest by clustering parts of a single cabinet within 2-3 sheets in sequence.

Yes this is possible. 

If you would like an on line demonstration to talk more in depth about these functions please contact Carole using our contact form.

I hope this is helpful and sorry again for the late response.

Best regards,

Ness

Hi, I’ve emailed last month about my questions but go no reply so I decided to post here.

So I’ve been looking for a cabinet software that preferably has this features I’ve listed down below,
Please let me know if PB can do it all. And if it can, can I schedule an online demo showing me the said features?

I need to know if the software has the following capability.

1.) Grain direction and grain matching doors, drawers, fillers and finished ends across multiple cabinets.

2.) Ability to control which side of the cabinet I want to place the fittings/connectors since I like no visible connector type of cabinet.

3.) Ability to add formula-based machining operations for horizontal bi-fold doors’ swing-up mechanisms such as the Blum Aventos HF, and other similar types of mechanisms on all inside faces of a cabinet including partitions, shelves and the backside of the doors (including fixed doors also like on a blind corner cabinet). Its formula syntax must be able to access parametric values from the cabinet like door gaps/reveals, sheet thickness, width and height of cabinet to calculate the accurate position of the holes/pockets. A challenging example for this would be 2 carcase sharing a common upper door and a lower door with a bi-fold swing up mechanism (like the Aventos-HF Blum) on each carcase. Basically the two cabinets will look like a single cabinet from the outside.

4.) Option for the nesting software to optimize cuts for speed, which would mean reduced direction changes on a router bit and thereby speed up cutting and more importantly reduce wear on the bit and on the gantry.

Hi Martien,

Thanks for your message.
Yes, the best for you is to sign up for Premium Support and continue to use the free version of Polyboard.
This version does everything the paid version does except output the manufacturing documents.
With Premium Support, Polyboard is still in demo mode but the subscription includes access to our furniture cut list and plans processing service, CabinetFile, completely free of charge.
The once per month printout can be for a cabinet or a project, it means one file per month in fact, so it depends of your design file.
Most of the time, users send a project of course.
Hope it will help,
Carole

Hello,
first of all, I’m very impressed with your software. I’m not a professional user, but more of a hobbyist that designs some furniture for my own use because I have a very old farmhouse where modern furniture simply never fits in.
So I can’t afford the full priced software, but I also don’t need most of its professional features.
I do need the design features and occasionally the print service you offer, so I could afford the €40 price for each project.
I have three questions, however.

1. Will the software keep running in demo mode once I have a premium support account.
2. Will the software return to demo mode after the month expires.
3. Is the once per month printout for an individual cabinet or for a full project.

Reason I need to know this is that the software does not show board sizes in demo mode at all (it displays the word demo), which makes it a bit awkward to design things as I generally take longer than a month to design project, like redesigning my kitchen and library (two projects I have started).

Thanks!

Martien van Ee
