i am looking for a kitchen design plugin for sketchup
i am not cabinet maker but cabinet reseler !
can i edit all your cabinet ?
i have 5 designers here and they have to work at the same time

is your plugin is ok for me ?

Garry K.'s picture

Cabmaker 2 Pro is aimed at designers and architects who do not require complete parts lists etc.

I have quite a few cabinet resellers who provide design services using CabMaker 2 Pro.

I'm not sure what you mean by edit all your cabinet, however, you have total control over materials, thicknesses, edging, grain patterns. You can add more colors / textures. You have control over rules and over size etc. There are over 150 parameters that you can change.

Most companies that have many designers spend time to create complete libraries. You can also check out the CabMaker thread on the Sketchucation forum.

There is a 7 day free trial - you can also look through the manual (almost 300 images on 160 pages)

Go to my website - register and download the latest CabMaker 2

Thanks , i will try it

do you have also on your catalog part like
panel, filler, o gee , countertop ?

Garry K.'s picture

Not countertop - they are simple to create with Sketchup. I have you tube videos on creating countertops.

Finished panels - yes
fillers - yes
o gee - ?? I don't know what you are referring to.

However you have a lot of control over doors and edging treatments, panel raising profiles etc.

be o-gee i mean crown molding

Garry K.'s picture

Most of my users have profile builder for Crown Mouldings, railings etc.

Profile Builder can help out with other generic requirements.

I’ve been on this project for several weeks and have had a few complaints from the shop that’s cutting the material and doing the assembly. I supplied them with drawings and everything seemed fine until the cut lists were being worked out. They had to re do all my box measurements because of the way they wanted the gables to sit in the box. Basically the gables were to be sandwiched between the top and bottom, stapled and screwed from above and below.

Is there a way to set the way the gable/s are attached in the box using the form/s that is used in Cab Maker? Maybe I’ve missed something because I’ve been through the manual several times already.

I'm wondering if anyone else out there is having similar issues

Garry K.'s picture

If you want to sandwich the gables then set the "Side Dado / Rabbet" on "Rules 2" tab to the same value as the thickness of the gable.

Hi Garry,

I am looking for a cabinet product for sketchup

I take it from the video that I create my own bench tops and place all other kichen fixtures, not an issue just want clarification Is there an extensive range of fitting like handles and door fronts and can you and add more handles to your collection

You can do a cuttiung list which is impressive. Even if it is not a 100%. Just need to know what to look out for so it can be corrected. I design and build low impact developments. Your product would be ideal for pricing any cabinentry. I take it there is no restriction on making any cabinet size.

You can download the most current version from my website. http://cabmaker32.com/
Create your own account on my web site and you can run cabmaker as a 7 day free trial.
Create all you cabinets with cabmaker and then add your own bench tops that you make. I usually create the base cabinets before I add counters.

CabMaker is very flexible. You can add your own handles as explained in the 145 page manual.
There are a lot of door profiles in CabMaker and you can add even more door profiles. The same goes for textures.

There are many templates that you can use as examples. You can create libraries of Materials (textures), Doors, Rules and Cabinets.
With rules and materials you set up cabinets how you want them built. With cabinet templates you set your own size length, width and height.

It doesn't appear that Cut List Plus works with standard sketchup output as feet and inches.

Cut List Plus does however work with millimeters and fractional inches.

Mike D's picture

Thanks for clearing that up, will change to fractional inches

Mike D's picture

Working now, just a few tweeks on my end. Thanks for your quick help, I was using the doormaker plug in and am impressed with how simple this makes modeling, just like all things in life, you gotta put some time in to make things work right. Thanks again

Garry K.'s picture

Mike,

Go to my web site and email me. We can continue this.
I assure you that I tried the process after your last comment and it worked as expected.
Something isn't correct.

Let's figure this out

Do not explode groups. You do not have to do any extra work. It is already done in Cab Maker.

Cab Maker Gold has 6 reports and 2 of them will work directly with cut list plus, CutMaster Pro and others.

With Cut List plus all you need to do is to map out the various columns.
The same goes for any other optimizer that reads csv files.

1) make a cabinet
2) save the skp model
3) create the reports
4) run your optimizer

Mike D's picture

I cant seem to make this work with Cut List Plus fx, Everything exports but Cut List Plus fx will not see the parts. I exploded the groups , but this did not help. Will it in fact work with Cut list plus?

Mike D's picture

Ok, I followed your directions to the letter, but the Cut List Plus FX program just rejects all the info. I can map all the columns and it just says that it appears they are not parts.
Long time user with lots of experience

I've added a video showing cutlist plus and cabmaker integration using fractional inches.

Garry K.'s picture

Mike,

I checked out Cut List Plus and Cab Maker.

For Inches
Set up your units to Fractional Inches, 1/64 precision and uncheck display units format
In Cut List Plus set up Dimension style as inches.

Try it out
