Woodworking Design Software developed for woodworkers.
SketchList 3D is an integrated modeling program designed specifically for woodworkers. SketchList 3D is a visual design tool that allows you to work by manipulating 3D objects on your screen. You work with virtual boards by dragging and dropping, cutting and pasting, or entering specific sizes and locations.
As your designs progress all drawings and reports, including an optimized sheet and board layout diagram, are created in the background. Any changes to the design are immediately reflected in all reports.
SketchList 3D contains built-in woodworking functions including joinery, contours, hole drilling, and cutting of shapes. You can put a tenon on the ends of a board with a few mouse clicks. You apply an ogee or mitered edge to a board the same way – a few mouse clicks. And because SketchList 3D ‘knows’ about woodworking, adding a tenon automatically adds the length of the tenon to the cut list and layout diagram.

One SketchList 3D user wrote us…
“I was doing a remodel and needed to design, cabinets, wine racks, and some storage. I tried another wood design product, but frankly, even to me as a long time programmer, the learning curve was immense. I simply didn’t have the time to invest to master it, given the level of detail I needed to achieve. I found SketchList 3D and never looked back. The tool is designed around woodworkers, using terms, definitions and objects that are intuitive and easy to work with. I’ve used SketchList 3D for almost two years now on other projects and it has simplified my life and saved me a ton of money not having to feed the scrap pile. The material estimating capabilities are a feature that makes it easy to buy needed materials without complicated calculations or simply guessing when you get to the wood store.”
SketchList 3D gives you control over every board, cut, angle and hole in your design. True one-off designs can be easily and quickly carried out using the visual virtual board approach. You can meet your design goals, work within the limitations of your project space, and satisfy your clients. Of course with SketchList 3D you can create your own library of objects for repetitive use when that is needed.
Professional woodworkers use SketchList 3D to help sales by creating photo like 3D images, speed the jobs to the shop by providing all needed reports, and reduce wastes of time and materials by helping them plan their designs for maximum efficiency in production.

SketchList 3D has added the professionalism to my company I was looking for. It allows the customer to see a very clear representation of what they are getting, unlike hand drafting. It has helped me to minimize mistakes and recognize problems before being built. My work is very customized so I would say this alone is the greatest asset of SketchList 3D to my company, great product!”
