Planit Canada Inc. Announces Availability of Cabinet Maker by Cabinet Vision

An entry-level rental software that helps cabinet shops get started on the road to automation; providing customer presentations, quotes and manufacturing information.

Planit Canada Inc. announced immediate availability of Cabinet Maker by Cabinet Vision, enabling cabinet shops purchasing CNC machines to rent an affordable design and manufacture software by Cabinet Vision directly through machinery vendors.

“With Cabinet Maker, small cabinet shops can get started with a great product, knowing they’ll only have to tackle learning one software.  From that initial investment, it becomes easy to upgrade to more robust modules as their business grows. We know how beneficial that big leap can be, so we’re excited to make that first machine purchase a little smoother for woodworkers.” Peter Mate, President at Planit Canada Inc.

Clients Benefit from Planit Canada Support

Several wood shops have already launched their automation using Cabinet Maker by Cabinet Vision. Newport Millwork & Cabinetry  recently implemented Cabinet Maker by Cabinet Vision in their shop and begun generating shop drawings, material requirements, parts lists and cost and quoting data. Planit Canada Inc provided the support to link the software to the CNC, to ensure an optimal start for the shop.

“All I wanted was someone to help me get started,” said Jon Prince, Project Manager, Newport Millwork & Cabinetry . “The Planit Canada technician installed the post, gave me some tips to get going and we’ve hit the ground running with our nesting machine.”

Available in either a Nested Base or Work Cell configuration (Panel Saw and Point-to-Point), Cabinet Maker can automatically process part geometries and produce machine ready G-Code, saving time and eliminating costly errors.
