"The Line Of Least Resistance” for Solid Timber Specialist | Alphacam Info Icon
Woodbase Joiners specialise in bespoke doors, windows and staircases, along with skirting boards, architraves, moldings and brackets, mainly for domestic customers and builders. The company, which operates from a 7,500 square foot factory and a 900 square foot unit on the same business park near the East Sussex coast, installed Alphacam Standard in 2016, but upgraded to the Ultimate package shortly afterwards.

With Alphacam’s Parametric Sketcher, common CAD geometry is created automatically, regenerating the file with any required variables, meaning there is no need to redraw similar components. They are built using standard geometry commands, with different sizes being created by simply modifying the values of one or more variables. “The parametric function is an absolute godsend, as we don’t have to draw the component every time. We simply pull out a door that is similar to the one we want to create, put in the sizes and drag and drop all the ironmongery, then send it to the CNC router.”
