In addition to generating manufacturing reports such as cut lists and material takeoffs, this cabinet program is a great sales tool. Good cabinet making software gives you the ability to quickly create and present 3D renderings of initial designs to your customers, then quickly revise those designs as necessary.

The built-in panel optimizer is a unique feature that will optimize your boards for faster cutting. The program optimizes for rip cuts first, cross cuts second by default to give you the fastest cutting solution. You can also specify rotatable to be able to have your non grain directional panels pack more on each board, so you spend less money on materials, and are able to pass that savings on to your customers. You can even add your random sized panels (panels that are too small to be a standard size sheet of material, but too large to be considered scrap) into the optimizer to help you reduce waste around your shop.
- Rip cuts first, cross cuts second to give you the fastest cut.
- You can select the entire job, individual cabinets, or individual boards to optimize.
- Add your random sized panels into the optimizer to reduce waste.
- Get the yield and waste percentages of each panel to help you price your jobs better.

Job costing can be calculated by lineal foot or by materials + labor + profit, depending on the needs of your shop. If you choose material + labor + profit, you enter in the program how much you pay per square foot for each type of material, and how much you pay for your hardware, then you add a profit percentage on top of that. With a click of a button, you can print out a bid or proposal sheet for your customer’s approval!
- Pricing by Lineal Foot or by Materials + Labor + Profit
- High accuracy based on what you pay per square foot of materials
- Fast quotes
- Bidding and Proposal sheets included
