JoinerCAD

JoinerCAD

Win64, English

Čeli APS
Allows the user to assign woodworking attributes (Fill and Cover materials, texture direction, and Oversizes) to the parts and to generate BOM, which is necessary to start the production process.

General Usage Instructions

Once installed, the JoinerCAD extension may be opened either from the Autodesk® Fusion 360™ toolbar or simply by switching the work environment.

Before using JoinerCAD you need to design furniture geometry by using standard Fusion 360 tools, which do not put any limits on the designer's imagination and possibilities in creating a design.

Once done, now it is time to assign various woodworking attributes to your designed furniture geometry:

A. Assign certain fill material groups to parts rather than specific materials, which can be specified in more detail in BOM by assigning the manufacturer, code or color.

B. Assign cover materials in the same way as filling materials. However, cover material group types may be assigned only to those parts that already have the fill material group assigned in JoinerCAD. Cover materials also can be specified in more detail in BOM by assigning the manufacturer, code or color.

C. Turn the grain direction of assigned Fill material or Cover material groups. Use the oversize control tool. It allows setting the dimensions of the workpiece, which will be used to make the part.

D. Insert the hardware in the model. JoinerCAD extension has its own hardware database containing standard and most common joints. You can also design your own hardware, but it has to be processed so that it can be recognized by the BOM generator of JoinerCAD extension.

E. Uses JoinerCAD BOM generator. It provides comprehensive, clear and well-structured information. BOM shows material groups assigned to the model, their workpieces with oversize, hardware and all other essential values, which may be represented in the BOM or not at the user's choice.

F. Before exporting BOM to MS Excel, elaborate on the fill material groups, cover material groups of hardware used in the model, i.e. replace their entries with specific materials, if necessary.

G. Export BOM to MS Excel and use data to start the production.
