Calling all furniture and interior designers: the days of creating square cabinets are over. What if we told you there's a much easier way to bring your products to life?
Here’s 10 reasons why we feel SOLIDWORKS is better than any other software, especially if you’re designing furniture:
Create complicated shapes
SOLIDWORKS can do more than
simple square furniture design, with its advanced surfacing capabilities
SOLIDWORKS allows you to create complicated shapes with ease.

SOLIDWORKS is a versatile CAD
software that is capable of modelling virtually any product, you aren’t limited
to just designing furniture. Using SOLIDWORKS you can design stairs, handles,
connecting components, sheet metal, steel framing and much more all within a
single software package. This means you won’t have any issues with data
translation between programs.
All drawing views generated in
SOLIDWORKS are linked back to the original 3D model, this means any amendments
made to the model are automatically updated within the drawing. This guarantees
your design documents will always be up to date, without any hassle.
integration with other software
SOLIDWORKS is capable of
importing and exporting many different file types. This flexibility simplifies
working with suppliers and customers, even if they are using different software.
DXF, DWG, step, iges, obj are just a few of the different file types available.
to any solution
SOLIDWORKS library features are
fully customisable so you aren’t limited to what is provided within the
package. Save and reuse your features so that you can simplify your repetitive
tasks to just a few clicks. Smart Components allow you to add parts to your
design and automatically create related holes and fasteners.
SOLIDWORKS files are often
available to download from supplier websites for items such as cams, hinges,
drawer runners. This saves time and helps create more accurate models.
SOLIDWORKS Visualize enables you
to create professional photo-quality images, animations, and other 3D content
in the fastest and easiest way possible. Show your products to clients in their
best light, in a way that’s appealing and easy for them to understand. Renders
allow you to display different colours and product styles without having to pay
for costly prototypes and photoshoots.
Cut-list and BoM creation
Cut-lists and Bills of Materials
can be generated automatically from your assembly design. This data is linked
to the assembly so you never need to worry about it getting out of date.
SOLIDWORKS gives you more than
just 3D CAD, the product portfolio available can be tailored to fit your
workflow. Whether you want to predict
real world behaviour, cut inspection time, or improve a particular design,
there’s an easy solution for any design within SOLIDWORKS.
10) Grow your design team
SOLIDWORKS is one of the most
prevalent CAD products, there are many skilled users in the U.K. and it has
become the program of choice for many top Universities. Finding competent CAD
users has never been easier!
