SketchList 3D Furniture Design Software Version 4 Shop, Windows Version
SketchList 3D is a computerized drafting program specifically designed for the needs of cabinetmakers and furniture makers. It allows you to easily manipulate three-dimensional objects on your screen in a natural, intuitive way, assembling your cabinet much the way you would in your shop. Create precisely dimensioned virtual boards with a few clicks, then drag and drop to the correct position, or copy and paste to duplicate the board on the other side. Drag corners and edges to quickly align with the overall exterior dimensions, defined at the beginning of the process. As your drafts rapidly come together, all required drawings, reports and cut lists are automatically updated in real time in the background. Joinery, hole drilling, and contours are easy to integrate. Add tenons to the ends of your boards with a few clicks, and all relevant lengths are automatically updated on the cut list. You can also create a personalized library of objects for repetitive use. Fast, flexible and easy-to-use, Sketchlist 3D will save you time, allow you and your customers to easily visualize your designs, and save money by eliminating mistakes and rework.

I also like the ability to preview my designs and it comes in handy when I can show my wife what I am building.
I found Sketchlist and never looked back. The tool is designed around woodworkers, using terms, definitions and objects that are intuitive and easy to work with. I've used Sketchlist for almost two years now on other projects and it has simplified my life and saved me a ton of money not having to feed the scrap pile. The material estimating capabilites are a feature that makes it easy to buy needed materials without complicated calculations or simply guessing when you get to the wood store.
Dave and his team are extremely responsive to suggestions for feature enhancements, and issues or reasonable needs are readily addressed.
I heartily recommend this product to anyone, weeked warrior or professional wood worker.
