Polyboard Version Control
Further details can be found on our Polyboard new features forum thread.
The ‘Ignore links if one of the panels is nil’ feature has been restored as a Fitting Links sub-method option. This had been temporarily removed in version 7.06.
Please make sure you also download our Quick Design libraries from the Polyboard download page. They replace the default libraries and will make your design and manufacturing process much easier and faster.
They include a huge range of materials, and hardware and other assembly details, and we’ve included lots of great models as well to show you just what’s possible with the software.
