Cabinet Vision recently hosted its third meeting of the Cabinet Vision Breakfast Club, Ohio Chapter. The gathering was designed to enhance the knowledge and capabilities of Cabinet Vision users and provide the opportunity for participants to network with peers.

Nineteen different companies that use the design-to-manufacturing solution were represented at the event, which imparted detailed technical knowledge and encouraged discussion among attendees.

In addition to a technical overview of Cabinet Vision Version 11, many attendees were introduced to WorkPLAN, an ERP job-management solution for job shops, as well as custom and made-to-order manufacturers.

Cabinet Vision Applications Engineer Sandy McClintock was on hand to answer the group’s technical questions, and to provide tips and tricks for maximizing the program’s capabilities.

“I was interested in meeting other users and having the tech online to demonstrate how to use some of the features and get some pointers,” said draftsman/CNC programmer Matt Bauman of Swiss Woodcraft, a meeting attendee who expressed interest in learning how to fully utilize the solution’s photo-realistic rendering capabilities.

In addition to in-depth technical discussions, the gathering included guidance on how to best navigate and utilize all available customer-support options.

“We went over a lot of information about the customer portal that I wasn’t unaware of,” said senior design consultant Connie Enlow, an attendee from Closet Factory of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. “That was helpful, and the networking was a good thing. I feel like other companies did a lot of swapping of information of people who could manufacture our parts.”

A tour of nearby woodworking company Dover Cabinet Industries was part of the event itinerary, and provided a means by which to see software and machinery in action. “It was good to get some insight into new machinery and see how they integrate it with Cabinet Vision,” Enlow said.
