Thermwood Cut Center

The Cut Center saves on training costs. Within less than a day, this award winning Cut Center will put your workshop in production.

Building Better Workshops with the Thermwood Cut Center

Let us help your company build a better workshop with a Thermwood Cut Center, a sound investment with many returns. Check out this video filmed at the WMS 2015 in Toronto (by the way, check out the 2017 dates)  and witness the very latest technology from Thermwood Cut Centre!

A Cut Center is a machine that looks a little like a CNC router but works totally differently. Instead of generating CNC programs that tell the machine how to move, it already knows how to move. It actually knows how to make products, tens of thousands of products. Simply tell it what you want, how you want it made and it makes it.

This is a revolutionary approach to manufacturing that can be run by about anyone. No special technical skills, no extensive training. It’s intuitive…tells you what to do, shows you what to do and connects you to a real live person if you want. This is manufacturing for real people.

There are no computers or design software in the Thermwood Cut Center. Everything is integrated into the machine and no programming skills are needed because the Cut Center because it already knows how to make cabinets. Just tell it what you want to make and it does it – it’s just that simple!

Thermwood Cut-Center… A new machine… A new approach…

eCabinet Systems & Updating to Windows 10

eCabinet Systems & Updating to Windows 10


Some eCabinet Systems users have upgraded to Windows 10 only to find that they need a new registration code in order to reactivate the free cabinet design software under the latest Microsoft operating system.   (Major Change = New Free Registration Code)


However, their current email may not be recorded in Thermwood’s registration system and they might not remember the old email address that they used for the original registration process. (Even if they did remember the old address, they may not be able to retrieve new emails from that account.)   Since they then do not enter the registered email address with their online request for a new free code, the Automatic Code Generator on Thermwood’s website is unable to fulfill their request.


Before upgrading to Windows 10, eCabinet Systems users are advised to:


·         Open eCabinet Systems and go to [Communications] -> [Verify My Email Address] to assure that Thermwood has the correct email address in their registration database.  If a change is required, the user can update the database to their current/valid email address within the same screen.

·         Make a backup of their eCabinet Systems files using the built in Back-Up function and setting found under the [File] menu.  This way the users’ data can be restored later, if required.


A little pre-planning can save an eCabinet Systems user a delay in getting back up and running under Windows 10.
