MILTON, MA -- SketchList Inc. announced a new release of SketchList 3D woodworking design software for the MAC. The company has been developing and marketing woodworking and cabinet making modeling software since 2006. This release of the MAC version brings easy-to-use 3D woodworking modeling capabilities to that platform. A free trial is available on the company website – SketchList.com.
Professional woodworkers use SketchList as a sales tool as well as a shop planning aid. Dave Rozewski , President of SketchList Incorporated, said that one driving force in the custom woodworking market is the ability to show prospective clients a high quality 3D image of the proposed project. "If you have one you'll probably win the job. If you don't have one you won't. The days of hand drawn pictures selling custom made work are a thing of the past."
