class is Spring 2011!
Joe Dusel is currently teaching the eCabinet Systems class at the Palomar College Cabinet and Furniture Technology Department in San Marcos, California.

Unlike most CAD programs this software is "parametric", so if you change the dimensions of a cabinet, everything associated with the cabinet such as faceframes, drawer fronts, drawer boxes and doors are also changed automatically. This program compares to others which would cost you $10,000 or more. And with Version 6 you get more features than ever!
Here are some example renderings from the software. Click on any of the thumbnail pictures to see an enlarged view. If you would like more information page down and click on any of the highlighted links.[photogallery/photo00015724/real.htm]
This class is held in a fully equipped computer lab, so everyone is able to follow along at their desks. If you do own a laptop I would suggest that you use your own for convenience. You should also have a flash drive that you can bring to the class to be able to save any files that you generate.
For more info on the class Contact Joe Here . If you are planning on taking the class make sure that you apply for the software ahead of time since it may take about 2 weeks to receive it. You can request the free software here at www.ecabinetsystems.com. If you are not a woodworking professional please make sure that you indicate that you are a Palomar College student studying cabinet making.
