Dear Cabnetware customers,

For over 30 years, Cabnetware has been a leading software for the woodworking market, helping customers to design and manufacture their products. Since joining the Hexagon (Planit) group of products in 2001, it has been developed, sold and supported alongside CABINET VISION, which was acquired in 1999.

More and more of our new customers are choosing CABINET VISION when evaluating the two. In fact, that number is now over 96%. Additionally, a large percentage of Cabnetware customers are adding CABINET VISION to their production processes. While we believe that Cabnetware, as a product, is capable of meeting the needs of a number of cabinet manufacturers today, it is also clear that the product better equipped to drive the future of technological developments in woodworking software is CABINET VISION.

With this in mind, we have made the decision to discontinue the sales of Cabnetware products, effective as of April 25, 2016. The upcoming Version 14 release, scheduled for this fall, will be the final release of the product. All Cabnetware customers will have the opportunity to purchase this version.

By focusing Hexagon’s development, support and sales resources on a single product, we will be able to better service our customers now and in the future.

Let us be clear, we did not make this decision lightly, and understand the impact that this will have on many of our existing customers. However, we are confident that this is the right decision and is necessary to ensure that we continue to deliver the best products and services possible.

Both CABINET VISION and our award winning S2M Center are truly the best solutions available, and putting all of our resources into these products will allow us to make them continually better suited to meet your design and manufacturing needs. 

We will continue to provide support for the Cabnetware product until April 30, 2017.

We encourage you to contact your local Hexagon software consultant to begin planning for your company’s future and to address any questions you may have.
