I’ve been looking on this topic for a while now as well. I’ve started design with a builder on my next house and will be doing my cabinets. I’m well versed in sketchup , but will be going another route.

If you are just looking at a way to design and layout basics or just add a basic cut list then skethup will work but you have a learning curve.

I want more. I’m going to cut mine with cnc so needed more.

What I found is cabinet design software is nice and a niche. It’s nice to have capabilities to layout the cabinets design in your slides (don’t underestimate that), and toe kick types and other things.

I found quickly its expensive, to buy. However there are onlline versions that you can rent by the month that would do what you want. So say you need 2 or 3 months to plan and finalize thats still much better than buying.

It will give you cutlists parts lists and pricing capabilities. Something to consider. There is a free one that you have to request and fill out a form and they mail it to you that has some of those features. I was using that before sketchup came a long. I think its cabinets plus, but not sure.

Later and good luck. IM if you have any other questions on the rentals. I’ve been loolking for about a year now.
