Title: Cabinet door/drawer program?
Post by: tjbier on November 30, 2017, 04:53 PM
  What do you do for cabinet data entry? What I mean is, is there a program to enter the width and height of a door or drawer opening and it will auto fill all the info that has been setup in the system ( inset, overlay, tenon size,  drawer widths/heights, drawer fronts ect.). Then it will give a cut list for stile length, rail length ( with whatever size tenon is entered added to the cut) , and the panel size that goes with that door.
  Or do you do all the math to figure everything out?

A spread sheet works pretty well for that. Most of the cabinet programs have a fairly steep learning curve, which is fine if you are doing a lot or output to CNC. We use E cabinets from Thermwood it is a free download and will do what you want but you need to invest a LOT of time into learning it. It will only produce code for Thermwood routers but will give you straight line cut lists if you cut with a table saw.
 
If you would like a sample spread sheet send me a PM and I will send you one we used to do all the cabinets and doors in a kitchen that you can use as a jumping off point.
