Cabinet Design Software Improves Your Output…

SketchList 3D works the way you do in the shop.

Using the SketchList 3D you lay out your work in detail – assembly by assembly, board by board, joint by joint until you have the design you want. Contour and edge is a few mouse clicks. Apply a joint by selecting it from a list. The terms, techniques, and processes of woodworking are built into the software.

Reports – cut list, parts list, shop drawings, optimized material layouts are instantly updated as you add and change parts to your design.

You can create your own library of assemblies, doors, drawers, and hardware to pull into any design for a quick start / quick finish project design. Objects are easily stretched or shrunk to fit the dimensions of a customer job situation.

One user put it this way.

“I will tell you that the speed of creating this cabinet was amazing. My original 36” cabinet was created in about 10 minutes. I had only used the new version a few times to look at it. My left side had two rabbits and four dado’s. I then mirror cloned it for the right side and then again for the back and then rotated it and resized it. WOW is all I can say.”

“I was looking all over for a program that would allow me to build things like small building projects. I needed something that wasn’t overly complicated. As a user of other top end 3D applications I was looking for something quicker, not nearly as complicated and I wanted something that gave me a parts list, shop drawings and more without having to work at it. I came across SketchList on a site. It is extremely easy to learn, less than a day for me, and easy to use. Hugely useful for showing clients architecture from the top down. Tech support is superb. I would recommend SketchList to anyone wanting to draw cabinet plans and those who want to create other small building projects as well.”

My husband, using the cut lists generated by SketchList 3D, to fabricate the mantel this past weekend. Out of the 52 pieces that made-up this mantel, we had to adjust only two pieces. Neither had anything to do with SketchList 3D, one was my error and the other was an artistic change. I’ve created 2 others as well as a corbel design this week. In fact, I’m just sending a pdf of a mantel to a customer for their final approval. I have lots to learn yet. But I have so many project ideas in my head that I’m sure that I will be on my way to mastering SketchList 3Din no time.”

I really appreciate the ‘visual-ness’ of SketchList. The 3D perspective is so incredibly helpful. Especially since I can barely draw a straight line even with a ruler. Just been enjoying using the software. I am currently quoting for some alcove shelving with a cabinet. I have attached what I have done so far, which I’m pleased with….”

After trying some CAD programs and Sketch-Up I found they weren’t optimized for woodworking. Your software does the job and makes it easy. The videos were helpful and got me going in a very short time. Next is to get better with the “joinery” design and then learn how to add “hardware” to my drawings. My first try was at an entertainment/wall unit and the final rendered view was great to show my wife what the cabinet will look like.”
