woodCADCAM - engineering and manufacturing software
woodCAD|CAM Planning through Assembly Process

woodCAD|CAM is a World Class, AutoCAD-based woodworking engineering and manufacturing software.

Engineer everything on ONE AutoCAD 3D Platform…EVERYTHING.

It’s used in over 3,000 factories and accommodates 14 different languages. Over 50% of all wood products in Europe are engineered using woodCAD|CAM.

THE SMART MANUFACTURING
SOFTWARE SOLUTION


Create 2D and 3D drawings that contain all the information needed for manufacturing. All the views are connected – change something in one view and the other views adjust (including edgebanding).

CUSTOM PRODUCTS / ONE-OFFS


woodCAD|CAM Is designed to handle the specific demands of each customer it serves. The data is customer-specific. The software provides an integrated data flow in operation from "first sketch to the machine." Manufacturing reports are available directly after creating the design. Design data is prepared for manufacturing. With full implementation, woodCAD|CAM greatly reduces costs, dramatically improves process reliability and increases profits.

Look beyond solid modeling. When you design with solids, you work hard to create the data needed for production. With woodCAD|CAM you interact with the sequel Database as you create the solid model of the product. The power of data management and solid modeling are combined to quickly generate error free parametric products.

woodCAD|CAM Intelligent Design

INTELLIGENT PRODUCT DESIGN


Fully parametric library of pre-built products The creation of customer libraries is user defined, with the ability to apply standard and/or specific construction principles. As well as the ability to incorporate purchased items, hardware, & customer specific connector applications as needed.

woodCAD|CAM Article Designer

CUSTOM PRODUCTS: ARTICLE DESIGNER


Uses contour shape extrusion into a shadow box to add parts, drawers, doors, buyouts, extrusions…all from scratch. Every article designed is parametric with no lengthy formula associations. Ideal for oddly shaped storage systems, store fixtures, reception desks, office furniture, enclosures, unique shipping containers (aerospace, etc.). Design visually and bring the hardware in at the same time – including machining.

CUSTOM PRODUCTS: OBJECT DESIGNER


Unique strategy deploying extrusion technology that allows the user to build radius articles. Before extrusion, selected materials are applied to a custom, sectional view.

  • Metallic extrusions embedded in panels YES.
  • Unique logos and artwork placed on flat panels YES
  • Joinery for studs and base plates enabling snap together assembly YES
  • Ease of reconfiguration based on field data YES.
  • Fully parametric YES

CUSTOM PRODUCTS: PART DESIGNER


You can build up nonparametric designs one part at a time and attach them to other parts using correct joinery selected by operator/designer. Develop 5 axis parts if your CNC equipment accommodates this geometry. Part Designer can add machining to parts while in 3D and also allows the user to change joint associations between parts while in development.

No fumbling around in a spreadsheet to achieve the unique results needed to complete simple variations of construction!

Part Designer can modify contours of parts or assemblies within the software. All of the heavy lifting calculations, CNC data, material/labor/work cell needs are done behind the scenes with ZERO use of formulas and spreadsheets. There is no dependency on a library full of spreadsheets that must be referred to as you develop new products. NO FORMULAS!

There are no limitations on what you can create and everything engineered in Article Designer & Object Designer is fully parametric!

woodCAD|CAM photo realistic renderings

PHOTO REALISTIC RENDERINGS


woodCAD|CAM photo-realistic renderings are a powerful sales tool. The extensive catalog containing textures, lights and additional special rendering effects will help you create realistic renderings you can show your clients before production begins, eliminating costly late production corrections.

No need to create hardware specific machining, just download from our data website and get the 2D, 3D and machining data needed to deploy in your designs.

LINK TO THE CNC PRODUCTION


Detailed machining data can be derived from planning and design. Not only geometric data, but technology parameters as well as the sequential control are automatically generated. woodCAD|CAM focuses on the individual machine situations from fully automated industrial plants to economical CNC connections all are possible with woodCAD|CAM software.

AUTOCAD TECHNOLOGY


woodCAD|CAM is an AutoCAD based technology, the industry standard. AutoCAD is not dependent on a complicated library loaded with large volumes of never ending formulas. AutoCAD is intuitive and significantly more productive leaving all other solutions way behind when it comes to creating "One-Offs".
