Hi Kero,

Polyboard can’t directly import from Progecad, but it is useful to get the coordinates for complex shapes that can then be manually typed into Polyboard.

Have a look at this video:

All the best,

PolyBoard can import-export files/works with Progecad?

Hi Mitch,

Progecad is a great complement for Polyboard and both work well together.

I run both, complicated projects can be easier to set up in ProgeCad and then transferred into Polyboard.

As well as projects can be built in Polyboard and rendered in ProgeCad .

All the best,

Thank you Ness poly board sounds like a great software i wish i could find something to run inside progecad  like microvellum does with autocad but lets face it who has that kind of money right. I think i will try polyboard out i wish i had found polyboard before i went and paid for progecad it’s not a waste i’ve been doing cabinet designs in progecad and rendering are great in it. Thank you again.

Hello Mitch,

I don’t know of any free nor cheap cabinet software for Progecad. Microvellum is certainly neither cheap nor free for AutoCad!

From what you say you could just use the free version of Polyboard with full membership.

If you have full membership you get to use it for free for one project a month using our Cabinet File lite service.

You’ll get all the plans, DXF files to load into ProgeCad and cutting lists for £10 per month, I don’t think you can get cheaper than that.

Extra projects are only £17 to get all the plans, so also very cheap.

All the best,

Ness

Hey everyone I’M looking for a cheap or free software to run with/in progecad like autocad and microvellum work because i already have my copy of progecad  and i don’t have much money left for this project. I own a small shop doing mostly cabinets for homes. I don’t need a product that does everything microvellum does just the basic’s drawing parts, cut list mostly just that no cnc or bar coding unless you might know of one.

Thanks
