"A big difference between this (SketchList 3D) and CAD is (SketchList 3D) seems more organized or structured than just drawing. In this way the board holds information beyond size and shape."
BOSTON, MA, March 09, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- SketchList 3D is designed for woodworkers. With it they insert, size, and locate virtual boards to create their designs. Woodworking processes are simulated as mouse click operations. By clicking the mouse users attach joinery, contours, holes, and shapes to boards. SketchList 3D employs the same terms, concepts, and processes as woodworkers use in their shops. One user said that SketchList 3D "... thinks like I do."
Ralph Bagnall is a shop owner, author, consultant, and product advisor for companies in the woodworking industry. After reviewing SketchList 3D he wrote: "A big difference between this (SketchList 3D) and CAD is (SketchList 3D) seems more organized or structured than just drawing. The software defines the board - what it looks like, what material it comes from, and how it will be laid out for cutting. In this way the board holds information beyond size and shape. I think of it more as building than drawing."
That idea of "more like building than drawing" is a key concept in of SketchList 3D's ease of use. Woodworkers understand how to build.
David Rozewski, the company president added: "Starting SketchList I knew ease of use is critical. We accomplished this using the concept of working with virtual 3D boards on the screen rather than the CAD method of lines and boxes; incorporating computer tools familiar to people; building in shop-like functionality; and using the terminology of woodworking practices.
