    I have had an auto accident and have lost considerable info from my past and would like to be able to start over with the training of your software.
    What is my next step? Where do I go for this? Is there a fee?

      Hi David, please register as a Free member on the homepage, then you’ll get directed to the Members Area where you can download the software and watch many of our software video tutorials to get started. You can also ask questions on the forum.

      There is no fee for this, but extra support and output of the manufacturing documents does cost a little extra each month. But it’s a great way to use this pro software without having to buy it. Check out this page for more details: https://wooddesigner.org/membership-upgrade/ All the best, Stefan

    Hi,
    I live in the U.S and would like to know if this program is only in metric or does it include imperial as well? Also, how much is the full membership in U.S dollars please.

    Thank you,
    Kim

      Hi Kim,

      Polyboard will work in metric or feet and inches, Just go to the Tools>units command and select the units you want to work in.
      Price for membership is 15$ per month.
      For this price you get full access to the website and one project manufacturing files per month.
      All the best,
      Ness

        Thanks for the quick response Ness. Could you also tell me how much for just the Polyboard software in US dollars?
