SketchList 3D 4.0.3617 | MacOSX | 120 Mb
SketchList 3D is an integrated modeling program designed specifically for woodworkers. As your designs progress all drawings and reports, including an optimized sheet and board layout diagram, are created in the background. Any changes to the design are immediately reflected in all reports.
Other design and CAD software simply automate the tasks of drawing lines and shapes, and in most cases provide dimensions. To move a drawing to the shop you must pull off a parts list, figure out how you will lay out those parts on their source materials, and create a purchasing report. Changes to the design require re-doing the reports and drawings.
SketchList 3D is a visual design tool that allows you to work by manipulating 3D objects on your screen. You work with virtual boards by dragging and dropping, cutting and pasting, or entering specific sizes and locations.
Design and CAD software require you to draw your designs with lines and shapes, connecting them together. This works well enough for two dimensional designs, but moving to the third dimension is complex and difficult.
SketchList 3D contains built-in woodworking functions including joinery, contours, hole drilling, and cutting of shapes. You can put a tenon on the ends of a board with a few mouse clicks. The same thing happens to apply an ogee or mitered edge. Because of the integration, adding a tenon automatically adds the length of the tenon to the cut list and layout diagram.
Design and CAD software require you to apply woodworking functions to your design by drawing them. With CAD an ogee becomes a drawing project involving a series of lines and curves.
SketchList 3D gives you control over every board, cut, angle and hole in your design. True one-off designs can be easily and quickly carried out using the visual virtual board approach. You can meet your design goals, work within the limitations of your project space, and satisfy your clients. Of course with SketchList 3D you can create your own library of objects for repetitive use when that is needed.
