If you are manually inputting the sizes of individual parts and tooling requirements into your CAM software, you'll know this is error prone and takes a long time.
With Polyboard, complete your design then send all parts with full machining details to the CAM software in one go, which in turn outputs all the code for your machine. The process is very fast, accurate and virtually automatic.
DXF is the industry standard file format that contains the drawings of your design. Specifically, these DXF files are layered, with each layer having a custom name (configured in Polyboard) that corresponds to a specific tool set up in your CAM program.
All these layers are interpreted by the CAM software to provide your CNC with the GCode to cut the parts and to add all the machining (holes for hinges, drawer sliders, cam & dowels etc).
