“Our customers are faced with the challenge of increasingly shorter delivery times for bespoke customer orders. Our CAD|CAM solution – in my opinion, is the best solution – for the construction of furniture and interior fittings. It allows our customers to retain a level of flexibility and offer maximum quality products with short delivery times,” explains Niklas.

When it comes to the new features that the latest version of woodCAD|CAM 12.0 provides, the primary focus is on user-friendliness. This has been significantly increased by a complete revision of the user interface.

The new version scores particularly highly in terms of its simplified operation for completing construction tasks. The possibility of faster construction and optimal handling of fixtures means that the user can work more efficiently.

Another highlight is the photorealistic representation of sales and release documents. The integrated planning tool allows the user to create impressive offer documents and design customer-specific living environments quickly and easily.

Further visualisation options, ranging from view drawings and 3D perspectives in shade mode right through to photorealistic renderings, also help in the optimal planning of new furniture. Another advantage is that the correct sale price is always displayed during the planning phase. Alternative offers can thus be created quickly and efficiently with different materials or fronts.

The modelling function has also been expanded; this is used primarily for the construction of interior fittings and by furnishers. Individual parts are put together freely on the screen in 3D.

The procedure is similar to the final assembly of a piece of furniture, and components, edges, connectors, processing steps etc, can be adjusted interactively on the screen.

Furniture design via parameters, the automatic generation of production data, and the seamless integration in other Homag software modules – all of which are essential key functions of woodCAD|CAM – have been retained. woodCAD|CAM has got everything covered: planning and presentation, design and production – from the first sketch to the end product, from the costing to the offer.

Changes can be made at any time in order to react to new requirements during the process. Based on proven CAD/CAM technology, anyone using this software for furniture design and interior fittings can realise a time saving of up to 70% in the preparation of work.
