  • great app

    Sometimes it works fine, but sometimes it positions parts with collisions. Using version 1.4. This app has a great potential and when it's finished it will worth much more than 2$. So now I consider it ok for the educational purposes, as for production, well, 80%.

  • HIGHLY recommended software.

    It perfectly suits my needs. Very convenient in use. The developer is very helpfull. (no affiliation, besides that fact that it's a polite and helpfull guy) It would be helpfull if you could save some standard sheet-sizes to select from. (it saves the values you used, but it would be handy if you could do it with 1 selection instead of 2) Highly recommended. Updating works flawless, installation works like a charm too. 

  • Finally!!!

    I just bought this in the pff chance that it would work well. I, until this moment, have been using a program called sketchlist for s few years now. it is cumbersome to design in and the cost is not $2.

    I installed the plugin and ran it. It worked, perfectly, the first time. I forgot that I made my cabinets in mm and had to convert the stock dimensions. I know it is working with the document measurements, but having the abililty to use whatever measurement would make it a little faster. That is just a little thing though. 

    Thank you for making this plugin, I can finally stop using that sketchlist program and combine all of my design workflow into 1 program.

    Michael, so glad you fine MapBoards useful. On the input units you can basically type in any unit you prefer including formulas and/or user defined parameters, fractions, etc. Say for example your design is created in mm, which you prefer, and the default units is in inches you can enter a Width and Length in mm by adding the units like this: Width 100 mm Length 200 mm. An updated version, 1.04, will be available today with some bug fixes which you are entitled to download at no cost.
