New features in interiorcad 2015
3D components: Production and photo-realistic planning
3D components are actual furniture pieces, as one generally finds coming from a joinery shop. Boards are formatted to the finished shapes and details such as drillings, grooves or contour definitions may be added. Also new – placement tools for 3D furniture fittings. The highlight – all changes to the fittings are stored and set automatically. The fittings are visualized in 3D and can be easily edited.
This allows you to let your creativity run free, directly in 3D…and you’ll not only receive the typical photo-realistic, perfect result, but without any further steps, the creation can be output to a wide range of CNC machines. A parts list can also be generated.
This is everything that has always been desired from a CAD for joiners and cabinet makers, but so far has not been possible with any other program, without departing from the drawing context.
With version 2015, components can be designed with mitering and contours. Additionally, CNC output to Woodflash is now supported.
New cabinet furniture is made up of 3D components
New cabinet furniture is based entirely on 3D components. Each component can be altered with 2D and 3D drawing tools in Vectorworks, so that you can parametrically plan furniture, while still remaining flexible.
Here’s what’s now possible, together with the parts list and CNC output features:
- Attach additional 3D components to cabinet furniture, e.g. kitchen countertops, desktops on base cabinets, etc.
- Cable pass-through hole in the back wall
- Opening for wall projections
- Insertion of additional hardware
In 2015, the new cabinet maker was, among other things, expanded to include drawers and angled shapes. There is also a tool for creating 3D drawers. Additional functionality will be added via updates throughout the life of version 2015.
