Note: If you are a cabinet maker who makes his/her own doors then Cabinet Pro is the program you should be investigating. Cabinet Pro allows the making of doors and cabinets. Door Pro is specifically for those shops that make and sell doors - without cabinets - to other cabinet shops. If you are a cabinet shop that also makes doors for other cabinet makers, then you may want to purchase both Cabinet Pro and Door Pro.
Door Pro, software for the Manufacturer of Cabinet Doors for other cabinet shops, produces numerous reports such as job costing, bids, confirmation reports, invoices, contracts, unlimited user-defined cutlists and panel optimization. Data Entry allows change of door style per door, change of frame and panel material per door, construction comments per door, multiple sorting of doors in job by style, material, height, and width, and alteration of construction methods per door. If you would like to see a comparison of features of all programs, see Program Comparison.

Panel Optimization available at additional cost.
CNC capabilities available at additional cost (see below).
User-Defined Financial Reports
Provides job costing & financial analysis of a job including comparison of current bid with expected bid.
Prints an invoice, bid, packing list, confirmation repot and contract for a job.
The bid that is printed can be turned into an invoice, analysis, confirmation report or contract at any time.
Figures cost of materials, hardware, labor, accessories, installation, finishing, freight, taxes, etc.
Allows user definitions of all labor activities and costs.
Adjusts bid to allow for actual labor spent vs. estimated labor.
Customization per Company Available (at additional cost).
Panel Optimizer will optimize all door panels
Multiple Door Styles per sheet, or single door style per sheet

Writes G-Code directly to your CNC Router without requiring any other program!
The CNC Operation, as processed by Door Pro
When Door Pro produces a cutlist, the panels are simultaneously sent to the Panel Optimizer which produces the G-Code Code behind the scenes to operate your CNC router. The Cuts that are made automatically, depending upon your setup, are as follows:
Straight Dado cuts of any width and depth
Dado may be cut at any angle with any corner of the part being the reference point
Drilling patterns where the holes can be of any diameter and depth
Circular plowing cuts, which are essentially holes larger than the bit's diameter
Arcs defined by two end points and an arc height
Profile Cut where each part is cut.
All cuts and drilled holes may be referenced from any corner of each part
Each cut and drilled hole may be defined as inches, feet, yards, millimeters, centimeters, decimeters, or meters.
Each router bit may be defined as inches, feet, yards, millimeters, centimeters, decimeters, or meters.
Door Pro CNC software supports routers equipped with a tool changer.
Door Pro CNC allows all dado cuts and drilled holes, regardless of diameter, width of cut, or depth of cut, to be made from the same bit!
The only operations Door Pro CNC software will allow are those needed by Door manufacturers, such as dado and rabbet cuts, drilled hole patterns, plowed holes larger than the diameter of a given bit, arc cuts, and profile cuts (cutting out the part itself).
Each cutting or drilling operation must be defined per door style. Defining the operations once for a given door style, for example, will be defined for all doors of that door style, regardless of width and height.
Limitations of Door Pro CNC Software,
Door Pro CNC software will not generate code that is useful in the making of exotic signs, or 3D objects, such as moldings, table legs, etc. Door Pro CNC is designed for cuts that are used exclusively by the Door manufacturer. These include dado cuts, rabbet cuts, drilled holes, bored holes, and arc cuts.
Door Pro CNC software will make raised panel MDF doors based only upon the tool (bit) that is being used to shape the raised panel profile.
Routers supported by Cabinet Pro and Door Pro
Cabinet Pro CNC and Door Pro
virtually any variation of g-code to routers that
are or are not listed below, as well as code directly to
BiesseWorks, Hops, Woodwop, and Xylog (See Below).
WoodWop (Weeke & Homag)
|Please Note: If your CNC router requires code that is unique, we may need to modify an already existing Post Processor for your specific machine. This is a relatively simple task and will be done at no additional charge, as long as you are willing to help test the modifications, and the changes are not extensive.|
