I opened the software up last night after an extended period of unuse (read that as “zero cabinets on order”) and plugged in a kitchen with a few challenges and viola, after about 40 minutes of drag drop and adjust, I had the complete job planned, priced, Quote printed and cutlists ready. The client was e-mailed the Quotation, elevation drawings, 3D renderings and the ice in my drink hadn’t even melted.

the usual disclaimer applies: My only connection with www.cabinetplanner.com is as a very satisfied user.

If you build cabinets, you owe it to yourself to check it out.

At first I read cabinet planer software on this old post…I thought how do you get software to plane wood?

I’m in the trial mode so far and it seems to work pretty good on your basic cabinets.

I like SketchUp. It’s easy to use and it’s FREE!

I must be missing something when it comes to sketchup. Is there a specific sketch up program just for wood workers?

It sounds like an interesting program. I’ll pass it along to some of our cabinet shop buddies.

I find Cabinet Planner (2 n’s) to be the answer no matter the size of the job. As I have indicated earlier, the process is highly intuitive and quick to use. The only lengthly part of the process is dialing in the standards to process cabinets in line with your current techniques. Once the standards are setup the rest of the effort moves along at about the speed of thought…...literally. The optimization is excellent and the price can’t be beat.

I though violas were made of wood :-)

When you bring up the SketchUp program look up at the top tool bar. Click on Window, and then click on Preferences. It will bring up the System Preferences window. Then from there, click on Template. It will bring up a selection of templates you can use. I always use Product Design and Woodworking- Inches. I use SketchUp almost daily to help visualize ideas. I like it because you can rotate around the entire project, hide certain components, and edit at-will.
