Please note: near the end of the install process, you will be asked to activate your software to unlock the full set of features. You can skip this step unless you have purchased the full version.
The free/demo version includes all design functionality. The only thing it doesn't do is output the manufacturing documents like your cutting list and plans. Click here to find out how to get them.
The installer will copy the library files onto your desktop into this folder:
Important: the new install will overwrite all files in desktop\Polyboard-lite.en if it already exists.
If you are updating previous Quick Design Libraries that you have customised, and you want to keep the old libraries, you must rename the old libraries folder before installing the updates.
Please also note: you must be using the latest version of Polyboard to use the latest version of the libraries. Simply click on the Polyboard download button on this page to install the latest version.
Please also download and install our Quick Design Libraries Lite edition of hardware and assembly details to massively speed up the design process (plus lots of models to show you what's possible with the software). The complete Quick Design Libraries Pro edition (value £500) is available to Premium Support subscribers and also comes with any purchase of Polyboard.
The libraries are delivered as examples and we strongly advise that you test and eventually adjust them to your manufacturing methods before using them for production purposes. Contact us or use our Libraries Set Up service to get them tailored to your specific needs.
