Hi Todd,

While toe kick drawers are definitely a feature that a lot of custom cabinetmakers implement, it’s not super common, so this would likely be one of those features that we’ll have to leave out of CabWriter, at least in the foreseeable future. As Joe mentioned in another post, in order to keep this as a low cost software package, we just can’t implement every conceivable option that could be drawn in a kitchen. There are packages that do this, but as you probably know, they cost tens of thousands of dollars. We want to capture the majority of common construction methods and cabinet types that we can draw parametrically. The beauty of being built on top of Sketchup is that you have a powerful drawing program at hand to draw any remaining features that aren’t drawn automatically. We feel that this can give us the best of both worlds. Over time, as the software matures, we can look at more features to add while still remaining affordable.
