  1. Stephan I am always happy to give feedback on InteriorCAD. The top three features I need to switch over to the new cabinetmaker are a qualified mortise and tenon  for nested based CNC, framed fronts, and face frames. I would also like to see a nested based dovetail drawer connector option. Since shifting to nested based construction cabinets sides that run to the floor and are notched have become very attractive. I have not seen this option in the new plinth tool. Grain Matching is also very important. There are other items for the wish list, but this is a good start. You might know by now I have been working with Megabits to set up their Quantum plugin for the Classic cabinetmaker. I could not wait for Extragroup to come out with a solution. It would be great if you would bring on some of the features they have developed. I am sending my DXF files to Enroute to nest and create TAP files for WinCNC. Lets continue to work on this.

  2. While I know this is an old thread I wanted to update my progress. I am now using Vectorworks and InteriorCAD 2018 running on Windows to produce files for my new CNC. It took a bit of training, but I am having great success with it.  The new cabinetmaker still has some areas that need to be completed, so I am using the Classic version.


  3. Hey, I was still using 2014 on a Mac, but underwent a big shift towards CNC this fall. I moved to a Windows system and am able to use InteriorCAD 2017.  I have not updated to 2018 quite yet. I’m waiting for some aspects of my system to be cleared for bugs. I like my Mac better, but Enroute is PC only.  I can use Classic and new cabinet maker on Windows.  It was a tough decision, but think it is the best for my workflow going forward.  I’m always glad to see other Icad user.

    Ive been using v2014 as well, but have also kept Vectorworks and iCAD up to date. There are still some features that are not finished. Frame and panel faces and face frames are not available yet, so I can't use it. I really like where the software is going, but waiting 3-4 years for a working version is not good. I am trying Mozaik hoping to get CNC ready. If ExtraGroup could finish the rebuild I would rather stay with iCAD. I'm not sure if the Windows version maintains backward compatibility for some of these features.

  5. Hi, I'll chime in. I have been waiting a long time for a functioning version of InteriorCAD. I'm currently running my shop with 2014, but have paid for 2015 and 2016. Why has it taken so long to make this upgrade? There are many things I like about my system, but our production really needs to improve. I'd love to have a dedicated forum.


  6. I continue to update both Vectorworks and Interiorcad in the hopes extragroup puts out a finished product. I am still doing real work on 2014. It is hard to know what to do. I design and build custom cabinets. We export our build data into Cutlist Plus to optimize, handle parts lists, and ordering info. I have been looking at Mozaik, but would have to shift to a Windows computer. I tried running it on Parallels, but could not make it work and the provider was not helpful. I really think when done interiorcad could be a very good piece of software, but for now it does not work.

    I do not see XG-Opening Triangles in my class list. Am I looking in the right place?

    I would love to be able to have door opening symbols without manually drawing them.


  7. I wanted to chime in the InteriorCAD 2016 still is not fully functional. I am using 2014. It is very frustrating, but am holding out hope they will get it completed eventually. I really don't want to change systems. If they ever get it working it should be an easier workflow. Does anyone have information from Extragroup about progress on a finished rebuilt InteriorCAD? The frame and panel fronts are not up yet, and much of the constitution process is back on the drawing table.


  8. I am an InteriorCAD user, and it sounds like what you need if you can spend the money. The light version may work for you if you are not building the case work. I use InteriorCAD to design and build custom high end cabinets and furniture. It has the level of control I need, and exports all cut list data to your choice of third party optimization software. I am having great results with Cutlist Plus. You can design in something like Schetch-up, but never have the control that is needed to accurately lay out a high end interior. If you want a pro result use a pro tool. As a builder this is one of a large number of overhead cost. As a designer it one of your only major expenses. It's worth a try.
