CabWriter v3.1.3  (Home, Pro, and CNC)

February 23rd, 2020

Note: By clicking on the button below to download the software, you are agreeing to the CabWriter Terms and Conditions.

This is primarily a maintenance release. View the release notes for version 3.1.3 here

You must have a valid CabWriter 3 license or have downloaded the free trial to access the latest version. Please download the free 30 day trial or login to download the latest software

Important Note:  CabWriter 3 includes new defaults as explained in the release notes, which means it may or may not work properly when opening a CabWriter 2.x model. The safest course is to finish up any CabWriter 2.x model using CabWriter 2.0 and start any new models with version 2.

If you must open a version 2 model with version 3, the best practice is to use the Re-Load Factory Settings (RFS) tool after opening it with the new version, then saving the file. Any cabinets drawn after that will include the new settings.  If you use the Retrieve Cabinet Defaults tool and draw a new cabinet, it will also include the new defaults.  If you don’t use the RFS tool, you may experience intermittent behavior when drawing cabinets.

Feedback:

If you have any questions or would like to report a bug, feature request, or questionable behavior with the software, please do so using our forum so we can keep track of the issues and also allow others to jump in on the conversation.

Your feedback is incredibly important to us in order for us to make CabWriter the best product it can be and to insure that it meets the needs of you, the cabinetmaker.  Please feel free to post any and all suggestions and feedback.  Keep in mind that we can’t incorporate everything, but it never hurts to ask!
