M,

I haven’t used Tutbocad for years, the Furnituremaker looks interesting.

l went over to Sketchup around ver5 and stopped my Pro version in January with that l used Cabmaker32 + Cutmaster, it’s a pretty good add on to design parametric cabinets with the most common cabinet fitting, it then nests the components with all the holes, grooves and cutouts etc and places the dxf files on a separate layer to import into vectric for toolpaths……. They were a one off purchase for about £300

l am interested in how you get on.

Wow Paul that sounds interesting, parametric cabinets in CAD could be very useful. I'm pretty new to some of these ideas so trying to find out what people think and will look into Cabmaker32 also. Thank you Paul, Mark

Took a bit more of a look at Furniture maker for turbocad and seems not to have a lot of support so probably give that one a miss.

I noticed that there was no trial version of Furniture maker…..not a good sign
