Hi Mosa, you won’t need the PolyBoard activation code if you use the CabinetFile service included in a Premium Support subscription.
You will receive the cut lists and plans for your project and along with this, we review and revise your project with you.
So if you want to use pro design and manufacturing software without buying, all you now have to do is sign up for Premium Support.
You don’t need an activation code, just design with the free version, all of PolyBoard’s design features are available, then send us your project and we’ll send you the files you need to build it.
If you are a business you will eventually want to buy PolyBoard outright so you can output all the manufacturing files yourself when you want. When you buy the software, we’ll send you the PolyBoard activation code which you put into the free version. This unlocks the output features.
If you have any questions, please just ask using our contact form or give us a call.
Thanks for reading!

Thanks for your message.
You only need the PolyBoard activation code if you buy the full version of the software.
The free version does everything except for output the manufacturing documents.
So you can start designing straight away.
You’ve then got 2 options for completing your projects:
1. As a Premium Support subscriber, you now have access to our CabinetFile (and StairFile) service.
Post your design on the forum and we’ll give you the manufacturing documents you need to build your project.
We will also review and if necessary revise your project to make sure it is as easy to build as possible.
That way, you never have to buy the software, plus you’ve got Premium support on the forum and full access to all training resources.
2. Buy the software to have print and export functionality integrated with the software.
In your case the PolyBoard Pro could be a good investment if you have several projects to build.
If you are thinking about buying the software for your workshop and would like a demo, please let us know.
