Beginners guide to SWOOD Design & SWOOD CAM

Get your woodworking projects done faster with SWOOD Design.

SWOOD Design plugs directly into SOLIDWORKS giving you the same look and feel with vastly expanded woodworking-specific functionality.

With specialised tools, simple ‘drag and drop’ features, and a customisable library, SWOOD Design has everything you need to create better products in less time than ever before.

Panel management

Decor/grain direction, Edgebanding, Laminate, thickness, curved stock.


Assemble panels and wood with tenon-mortise, dowels, cams, lamellos. Create insertion rules and apply by drag and drop.


Reuse shelves, partitions, drawers and doors from your library to save on design time.


Insert your cabinet and link dimensions to a layout sketch.


Drag and drop control of shapes library, shapes replacement and apply on multiple edge.


Customisable documents, export to cutting optimisation software, cut lists, hardware lists, labels.

SWOOD Design

SWOOD Design runs inside the intuitive SOLIDWORKS user interface.

Get it ready for manufacturing with SWOOD CAM.

Use SWOOD CAM to create programs for your CNC machines and releveant production documents directly inside SOLIDWORKS.

CNC Machine control

SWOOD CAM is capable of controlling from 3 to 5 axis machines.


Control Homag, Biesse, SCM, IMA, Holzer, Felder, Masterwood & Maka machines.

Woodworking tools library

Drilling block, aggregates, horizontal spindle, edgebanding.

Trajectories Simulation

With material removal (see video)

Automatic detailed production data
