Through years of development, the woodworking machinery industry has developed from pure mechanical products to mechatronic products with NC woodworking machinery becoming more and more popular, making this industry ranked among most important technical equipment industries. To improve the quality, technical performance and reliability of products, CAD and CAM technologies have been widely used in designing, machining and customizing machine tools by woodworking machinery corporations globally.

In this article, ZW3D, all-in-one CAD/CAM software, will be introduced for the application in woodworking machinery industry.

With ZW3D, you can design and assemble the cabinet with panel, simulate its motion and check its interference, which will contribute to finding the problem before production.

By using this software, you also do rendering for your model to show the customer the visual images (just as shown in figure 1). With simple operation, you can change the texture of the cabinet to what you want, such as wood, plastic, metal and drawbench, and the background to what you expect, such as exhibition stand, supermarket and furniture city (as is shown in figure 2).

In machining, thanks to the emboss feature, which is widely used in woodworking machinery profession, the designer can design the carving with ZW3D neatly.

The other reason for ZW3D to be used in machining is that it can help finish the manufacture of woodworks and kinds of furniture, includes the roughing and finishing, just as shown in figure 4.

What’s more, ZW3D can achieve multi-axis machining, such as 4-axis and 5-axis machining, just is shown in figure 5.

In addition, ZW3D can provide customization for woodwork machinery industry by using special machine method and procedures, which will enhance the efficiency of design and machining.

By integrating with CNC machine, ZW3D develops a template suitable for the woodwork machine, which can cut down the time and optimize the design parameter. The machine can use the STL file to do 4-axis machining directly, and can adjust the contact angle of the tool to improve surface quality, making it easier to carve the woodwork.
