PolyBoard software

Fast and error free parametric design. Just type in the sizes and PolyBoard draws and updates your project automatically.

With instant access to cut lists, drawings of every part and CNC files. Plus full hardware management.


Simple intuitive design

Easy to learn design process that is much faster than a traditional CAD package. Size your carcass and drop in your components (drawers, doors, shelves and so on). Resize and the entire model is updated for you.

No need for a specialist technician to work up your projects, perfect for small to medium workshops.

Complex calculations on auto

Sloping walls and ceilings, irregular angles, boxing around pipework are all quick to accommodate. From simple box cabinets to L shaped and corner cabinets to free form designs.

PolyBoard's powerful parametric motor immediately generates 100% accurate output complete with all cut angles every time.

User friendly project management

Drag and drop individual cabinets into a project like a room layout, assess aesthetics, ease of manufacture and resize to fit.

Add single piece or composite worktops, splash backs, plinths and more, all included in the cut list, plans and CNC files.

Single click application of hardware and assembly details

Automatically apply the machining for your hinges, drawer sliders, panel fittings etc based on your own placement rules, plus the exact set up for your drawers, doors and lots more.

Resize your project or change components, all hardware is dynamically moved, added or removed as required!

polyboard cabinet design

"I would usually allow half a day for pricing and design, two days for manufacture and a day for fitting and re-cutting missing bits and mistakes. That’s 3½ days. This job took 1½ days from start to finish."
