Own a CNC? Still using the stock spreadsheet design application to produce your cabinets? Read on... Over the last (almost) two years since we started promoting our software range to Australian cabinetmakers and joiners we have noticed that that among recent adopters of CNC routers for cutting and nested based manufacturing there is a significant trend towards customers favouring Biesse supplied cnc machines. From what we can tell part is due to the brand recognition and reputation, but another part is due to Biesse making the entry cost of CNC lower by supplying together with its machines. Traditionally when a customer was looking at buying a new CNC, in addition of the machine itself, they also had to consider the additional cost of design software on top of the machine cost. This obviously raises the bar and makes a bigger entry barrier for smaller companies facing the prospect of large financing loans to get into CNC and the befits to production that it brings.  To view the full blog article click here!

Did You Know? As of late last year the new version of Polyboard includes a full featured measuring tool. The measuring tool can be used to easily find the distance between cabinets, or cabinets and walls. The tool enables the user to easily take horizontal, vertical and even 3 dimensional measurements. This makes it very easy to be able to set the size of cabinets and also the determine gaps than need to allocate d for appliances and also to check spaces for opening  of cupboard doors. The dimensions that are shown when using the tool can be temporary (red colour) just to see the value or they can be made permanent (green colour) and will be added to the dimensioned workshop drawing. To make a dimension permanent simply right click the dimension label and select ‘Permanent dimensions’ from the menu.
