Robert Thsuster

The trial version was very helpful in one of my larger jobs and the finished product was spot-on for the on-site install. The two floor registers fell right into place with the breakfast nook seating! The client LOVED the piece and we’re in conversation for another large job.

SketchList 3D Pro is a really good CAD software for the DIY set. There are a few things that they could have included to make life easier for non-professionals, but it’s still got a lot of versatility so that you don’t need to be a cabinet maker to make use of it. All in all, I highly recommend this software, and will now be using it as my primary go-to when I need to work with cabinets.

Don Neil

Easy to use, very nice rendering and really helpful towards creating my material list, along with minimizing waste with the cut lists and diagrams.

John R.

Ease of use... works like a woodworker thinks rather than how a programmer thinks.

Craig R.

Very good support along with online education videos.

Frank Willingham

I looked for years for a design woodworking software program that would easily capture a design and enable modifications. I tried Autocad, Designcad, and Sketchup. As a result of my experience I found all of these programs are very complicated, expensive, and carry a huge learning curve. Sketchlist has captured the best of these programs from a woodworker’s perspective. Furthermore it is easy to input dimensions and make adjustments as needed. Whether it is a simple box design or the molding that surrounds it, SketchList makes it easy. And it is very affordable.

Lee Peterson

SketchList 3D Professional offers me all the features I could possibly use. It is particularly useful in estimating how much material I will need for each project, and for providing cutting layouts. Because I find it to be very accurate on material costs I feel comfortable with that part of my bids.

John Lansing

I am sorry it took me so long to purchase your design software, but boy when I did, the business boomed! I’ve been using your cabinet design software now quite extensively. I have designed and quoted on 4 jobs in the first month of receiving it and have successfully won 3 of those jobs. The fourth one was actually put on hold because of the customers situation!

Mike Oldak

SketchList is unbelievable! I’ve use this cabinet design software package and it really pays off. Just the optimization of the cuts for the 4×8 sheets of plywood was worth the price. Saving even a sheet now and then pays for the software. I give the local wood shop my cutting diagrams and have them do all of that for me. This was especially important as my small shop didn’t handle large 4×8 sheets easily. Feel free to use the photos I sent if you like as examples of what can be done with SketchList on a first try.

Fred Eisis

Our shop uses SketchList everyday, sometimes even directly with our customers standing over our shoulder. Most of all we love the design features that are related just to woodworking and the photo backgrounds from clients are an amazing feature. Furthermore we’re thinking of using the 3D PDF on a touch screen in our showroom.

Dan Longiaru

I used your software for a wall unit for one of my clients. Up to now we’ve done everything with pen and paper. The 3D renderings absolutely blew them away. In addition, your software guided me in a detailed technical discussion with the clients about their requirements. Since that type of discussion sometimes uncovers requirements that affected the contract price — better to find out sooner than later.
