EnRoute Woodworking Software for Architectural Millwork


EnRoute Software is a complete CAD/CAM software solution for the woodworking and architectural millwork industries. EnRoute includes high end capabilities found in more expensive and complicated software and includes 3D graphic features and functions found in artistic programs that together allow EnRoute to support a wide range of woodworking applications in one program.


Woodworking Applications:

  • Curved Mouldings
  • Inlay Wood Patterns
  • General Part Cutting
  • Textured Panels
  • 3D Millwork
  • Dimensional Signs & Lettering
  • Unique Designs
  • AutoToolpath (ATP) / Cabinets

Curved Mouldings

Straight mouldings are not something you would typically cut on a CNC router, but as soon as curves, arcs or other odd shapes are needed, things become a little trickier and CNC routers provide a good solution. EnRoute’s 3D Surface tools, which are available in EnRoute Pro and the Subscription version of EnRoute, make it easy to create curved moldings no matter how curvy or awkward the necessary shape. Any profile can be extruded along a path with ease.

Inlays and 3D V-Groove Carvings

A CNC router allows you to turn ordinary wood stock into decorative components. Two commons CNC woodworking applications are inlays and decorative carving. Inlays involves cutting shapes out of different materials and then combining the different materials for various effects. And 3D carvings are the process of using a V-groove to clear out material in a way that allows for great detail and doesn’t take a lot of time.

General Part Cutting

A CNC Router is one of the most useful tools in any shop and can be used to cut about anything. EnRoute provides the CAD Tools to design part from scratch, and the ease of applying toolpaths makes EnRoute a great solution for one off parts.

Textured Panels

You don’t have to look far to see that textures have become popular in today’s world. Popular with Bars, Restaurants, Hotels, Airports, Retail Stores and even residential properties, textures have become a staple. EnRoute has tools that make it easy to create textured panels. Both the kind made with tool profiles and 3D Surface Textures. If you are interested in cutting textured panels, EnRoute is the perfect solution.

Rapid Picture

The Rapid Picture ability is part of Rapid Texture, but it’s so impressive that it deserves as spot of its own. Simply stated, with Rapid Picture, you can cut a picture using your CNC Router. The photo used during the process is converted to grayscale and then depth is applied to the Rapid Texture based on color. The results you can achieve are amazing and there are lot of good resources to teach you how to use this tool.

3D Textures and 3D Ornaments

With a CNC router, someone with no woodcarving experience can begin to incorporate high quality 3D Surface wood carvings into their range of offerings. You can purchase 3D mesh clipart that can be added to cabinet doors and moulding. 3D textures such as basket weave and flowing textures can be added to furniture drawers. There are many applications where adding 3D elements can be of benefit.

Signs and Lettering

Because CNC routers are good at cutting out shapes of any kind, signs and lettering is an application for they are well suited. EnRoute has a long history in the sign industry and has many tools to allow a wood worker to easily break into this market or offer services to existing customers. From simple 2D applications to advanced 3D Dimensional signage, EnRoute can meet any CNC sign making needs.

Unique Design Tools

EnRoute contains a number of unique design tools that were created for the purpose of cutting out parts on a CNC router. One of the most amazing of these tools is the Component Creator. The tool was hard to name because it can be used in so many ways. You have to see what this tool can do to believe it. And the Model Stacker will allow you to use your router to create 3D replications of 3D mesh objects made from 2D slices, which can be scaled in any way.

ATP/Cabinets

Cabinets are not as interesting as a lot of other applications, but cutting boxes for cabinets and closets is the most common use of CNC routers in the woodworking market. EnRoute’s AutoToolpath (ATP) Engine works with many of today’s leading 3D Design Software and provides excellent functionality at an affordable price. EnRoute is capable of meeting small or large production needs for nested based cabinets. If you don’t have a cabinet design program, you can use the Boxster base cabinet macro to create standard cabinet components of various sizes and materials right from EnRoute.
