Helllo again,

As promised click here for a little video to show how to use StairDesigner with Polyboard and SketchUp to set up a cupboard under stairs project.

You can use the free 3D DXF service that comes with Wood Designer membership to get the StairDesigner and Polyboard DXF files, but you’ll need a full SketchUp to get then into SketchUp .

The work around is to download the full trail version of SketchUp to read the DXF and save as a SketchUp  file. You then insert the SketchUp into the free version. As the full trial is  limited to certain number of hours use you don’t use up the hours so fast as if you work on your project. 

any comments welcome.

Hi Mark,

The Standard, Pro and Pro PP versions draw the angles but the Lite version will only set up rectangular cabinets.

The set up a angled cabinet using the Lite version you have to install the demo version to another computer or partition and work the project on the demo version.

Now from what I’ve been told when you open the demo file in Polyboard Lite and you should get the plans with angles drawn.

I’m not 100% sur as this is what the developers have told me and I haven’t tried it myself so if you try keep me updated .

If it doesn’t work just send us the demo file and I’ll send you the angled drawings .

I’ll upload a little video later on this even to show how to set up under stair cupboards.

All the best,

Hi All

On the rare occasion when we produce cabinets for under stairs etc, we produce cutting plans from polyboard.

These show us the total panel size for an angled door, but is there any way of seeing what the angle cut for the door would be.
