The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 3.0
PolyBoard is a 3D CAD tool for design and build cabinets and shelves.
This cabinet tool offers a wide variety of options to create and design cabinets with great detail. Their designs are ready to manufacturing, providing the list of materials to build the cabinet.
Also the parts of a cabinet can be chosen from a list of materials.
Among the variety of features this CAD tool allows adding the number of slopes; adding vertical divisions and modifying the distance between them. Of course the horizontal divisions (better known as shelves) are allowed and these can be fixed or mobile; it permits adding doors and drawers into spaces.
Materials for frames, panel and edges are available to select among a big list of them. Also it's possible to change the style of edges to give a great new shape to the cabinet design. All the features from a CAD program are available on this software just like the zoom in, zoom out, 3D etc.
Manufacturing methods are available to provide several scenarios for the cabinet construction. Also the materials list become available once you select the materials, styles and manufacturing methods.
This cabinet tool is fully compatible with any computer numerical controlled (CNC) machine tool; it provides DXF files of the design. Its GUI is very easy and friendly to user, with great graphic detail and many features for the cabinet manipulation.
Its documentation is not included, however on its website there are some information. Its installation process is very simple and easy to perform.
PolyBoard runs in Windows platforms.
