I am currently trialing sketchup in a way I’ve never used it before, to see if I could possibly replace my existing kitchen design software (Mozaik) and bring everything I do into SketchUp alone.
Has anybody, or does anybody currently do kitchen cabinetry design in Sketchup, and have a list of plugins or a workflow they would be willing to share?
Ideally I would like to;
Be able to create pre-defined cupboards (Possibly through the built in components)
Easily resize units without having to re-draw
Easily change options, like door type, handle types, etc. without having to re-draw
Report and present cutting lists and material quantities
Export to CNC
The big catch, is that whatever I use, whether it be a series of plugins, or whatever, would need to be efficient and quick. I’m happy to take the necessary time to build component libraries. Alterations would need to be done without having to re-draw though, cutting lists, cnc export and quantities would need to be quick, accurate and simple. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be financially worth culling Mozaik.
I’ve tried a few plugins, and had a look through various posts, haven’t really found anything that ticks the boxes above, I understand sketchup probably isn’t best suited for this type of work, but just thought it couldn’t hurt to ask.
