From Design To Manufacture

With the free versions of Polyboard and StairDesigner you can design your projects in full, including great 3D presentations. However, you don't have immediate access to the manufacturing output: cut lists; plans; and CNC files.

Take a look below a the different options open to you to obtain those manufacturing documents.

1. Buy the full version of Polyboard or StairDesigner

For a professional manufacturing furniture or stairs regularly, it makes sense to buy the full version of the software. This allows you to output your working documents direct.

In this case, investing in software is certainly one of the most profitable options and gives a very quick return on investment.

Premium Support is included with all our software packages. We also offer online and workshop based training.

2. Use our CabinetFile and StairFile processing service - no need to buy

Perfect for the occasional project, use the free version of Polyboard or StairDesigner, send us your design file, and we'll process it and send you back your manufacturing documents.

This service is free to Premium Support subscribers, which means you'll also get access to invaluable expert help with your design and build, plus ALL our training resources.

3. Outsource manufacture of your projects - no need to buy

Design with the free version of the software, then use one of our Approved Suppliers to cut and machine your parts, and deliver to you flat packed and ready for assembly.

These suppliers have the full version of the software, so you can get from design to manufacture seamlessly. Premium Support is included free of charge, so we can help you whenever you need it. Plus you'll have access to ALL our training resources.

If you are a small to medium workshop, an interior designer or architect, you can now have full control of your design but outsource at low cost any elements of the build you need to.
