I use KCDW. It is great for general cabinet making. It gives a great 3D perpective, cutlists, pricing, and superb shop drawings. The only thing I don’t like is that you can’t draw furniture unless you buy that program, same as closets. For the price you should get everything and then some. I don’t regret buying it. If you just want to show clients a picture you may try sketchup or E-Cabinets. I tried E-Cabinets in the past and found it a little complicated. But there was a conversation on WoodWeb regarding E-Cabinets vs. other software and I have to say the final results were unexpected. I went up against someone drawing a fireplace and I couldn’t do half the stuff he added. They looked similar but his was way better. And it’s FREE. They also allow you to purchase material, parts, etc straight from the program, as well as transfer to a CNC. If you want to pay though KCDw is a good program.

I have E Cabinets. I’ve upgraded for a couple of years but I’ve never used it. I guess i need to sit down and atleast start it.

I believe that they have tutorials also.
