I work for Planit. We sell CabinetVision and Cabnetware software that can do anything from basic layout and design to pushing a button to send the parts to a nesting router that drills, cuts dadoes, and cuts out the parts for assembly. But even the lower end Design and layout only software starts at around $4,000. Most of the people I speak to and help in my role as Tech Support for Cabnetware have $15k to $20k invested in software and another $75k to $100k in a nesting machine or panel saw and Point to Point machine to cut out and machine the parts.

Thermwood, a router manufacturer, has developed Ecabs and distributes it for free basically, but it only works with their brand routers. Lots of folks get it and just use it for designing and cutlisting.

Run a Google Search for “Cabinet Design Software freeware” and you will come up with a bunch of free or shareware programs that can probably do what you want.
