The software has huge potential…….as with anything like this its all about finding the time to use and learn it. What sold it for me was the promise of a website dedicated to the software and video tutorials to back it all up. All of the other stuff (including this forum) is a huge added bonus and something I want expecting.

Im not using the software as yet to its full potential…..but I learn something new on every job I do and incorporate that into the design. Ive even managed on the last job to produce some plans for the customer in an alcove which swung the job my way.

I’d like to take a week off!! and learn the software thoroughly but probably not going to happen for a few weeks as there are always bills to pay.

The videos are the key to learning IMO…..and after a few watches of the ones that are pertinent to the job you are on everything makes sense.

Good luck

Thanks guys, I’m already enjoying this site and the information shared here, I’m sure it can only get better!

 

Terry, nice to know we are trying to do the same things, I can really see potential with the polyboard software once I get it dialed into the kind of furniture we make as I think it will save me alot of time manually doing cutting lists and also give clients a better idea of how things will look in the end.

I’m also a bit fan of festool tools and their system of doing things so hope to share some of that here in the future.

Hi Jim

Welcome. I do similar work to you…..refurbishment and built in furniture mainly, with the odd piece of free-standing.

Hopefully we can all help each other out on here, it looks like it’s going to be a great one stop shop for designing furniture, getting help using the software and helping each other out with build techniques and tips.

All the best

Hi all,

 

I am a cabinet maker and refurbishment business based in london. Just 2 of us either in a workshop or on site. Just started using polyboard and enjoying it so far. I have a few questions that i will post in another thread, this one is just to say hello and I’m looking forward to interacting with others who are doing similar things.
