  • Furniture design software

    I have found a good, affordable ($200) software application for furniture design.

    It has a very intuitive interface and has a much shorter learning curve than a Cad/Cam package or Googles’ Sketchup.

    As you are designing your project, the package is building parts lists, price lists and cut lists. It also “knows” about joinery and will calculate both cut length and component nominal size of board.

    There are many more features too numerous to mention here.

    If you are interested, go to http://www.sketchlist.com for more information, demos and tutorials.

    You can download a free trial version from there.

    DISCLAIMER:

    I have no financial interest in this company and receive no salary or commission from it. My interest is solely to inform you of a product that may be of use to you in designing furniture and other things (rooms, workshops etc).

          You're right, KenM, it does indeed work on Vista. When I downloaded and tried to install it last evening my laptop apparently had a Microsoft Moment, because it would not run the install package. The Sketchlist download page does note that it's not designed for Vista.

          But, it's installed now and runs fine, so that's all that matters!

            Sawdust, I had trouble with it on my Vista machine as well.. For some reason I had to close some apps to free up memory and then it worked.. Looks like its a memory gobbler.. But nice software..

                OK, I don't use vista, perhaps I can use that for my business. Thanks!

                  id be real surprised if the learning curve is shorter then google sketchup, but even if it is, sketchup is free!

                    As noted before sketch list uses component models to build a design. A programm that is similar is Alibre. There is a free limited use version available at http://www.download.com/Alibre-Desig...-10424841.html
                    I haven't tried it myself yet, but have read some positive reviews.
