Woodworking software add-in for SOLIDWORKS

What is SWOOD?

SWOOD is a suite of woodworking design and manufacturing tools for SOLIDWORKS. Easily complete your woodworking projects with features dedicated to wood and panel processing, SWOOD makes it easier and faster to make production ready designs.

Woodworking software inside SOLIDWORKS

SWOOD meets all of your woodworking project needs with tools for 3D design, production documentation, CNC machining, Nesting, Automation, and Timber Construction.

SWOOD works right inside of SOLIDWORKS making it easy to use and very intuitive. The SOLIDWORKS and SWOOD provides woodworkers with a dynamic and interactive environment with collaborative working and 3D parametric modeling for all the wood cabinetry, product, and construction needs.



The SWOOD add-in for SOLIDWORKS provides woodworking CAD, CAM, and Automation tools to compete your projects faster.

Wooden cabinet
  • Cabinetry Design
    Woodworking Design

    SWOOD Design allows you to quickly and easily create cabinetry and wooden products within the SOLIDWORKS 3D environment utilizing the core parametric capabilities. A complete drag and drop hardware library is included plus connectors, materials, cut lists, BOMs, and customized reporting.

  • Woodworking CNC

    SWOOD CAM provides the machining and manufacturing tools for all your wood projects. SWOOD CAM manages CNC machines and their specific technology. You can create your programs and production documents directly from within SOLIDWORKS.

  • Woodworking Nesting
    Woodworking Nesting

    SWOOD Nesting is an add-on module for SWOOD CAM. It allows you to accurately nest your project parts onto wood panels for manufacture. Thanks to the nesting technology your wood panels will be optimized and material waste is reduced.

  • Woodworking automation
