INVALUABLE TIME SAVING
WoodCAM saves you time!
It’s incredibly easy to enter a new cabinetry job using this versatile CAD/CAM software. From simple jobs to the most complex: WoodCAM has an intuitive, step-by-step process that can assist any person.
All dimensions and drilled holes are automatically generated – so you don’t have to calculate part sizes yourself!
HOW DOES WOODCAM WORK?
WoodCAM was developed to make the entry of designs and specifications into Microsoft Excel spreadsheet templates easier to automate the processing of your designs. Enabling you to create a cut list to be sent to the machine for cutting. When possible, WoodCAM reduces the need to re-enter the same information for each cabinet in a room.
Details that are common throughout the job are entered once through WoodCAM. The display screen comprises three main sections:
- Top Section: Job details are entered in this section and include the customer order and delivery information. These details are entered once and remain on screen for reference during all other entries.
- Middle Section: Room details are entered including the room style and materials used. These details are entered once for each new room and remain on screen for reference during Item Entry.
- Bottom Section: The cabinet item details are entered including dimensions, fittings and accessory options.
Note: Once entered, the details can be exported to a panel viewer screen to show bore details, hinge locations, edging details and more, before you cut the job. This prevents mistakes and wastage.
A key benefit of WoodCAM is the accuracy with which it generates quotes. It produces job costings with every screw, hinge, metre of edge tape and board accounted for – so you know exactly what it will cost your business, and don’t experience the cost blow-outs typical of manually calculated jobs.
