Agile Cabinets is a specialist commercial joinery company that has been in operation for 10 years.
Our factory is located in Kilsyth Melbourne and we currently have a staff of 10 employees. We specialise in shop and office fit-outs, produced by highly skilled commercial cabinet makers. Our focus is on delivering high quality products and services at a competitive price, using sophisticated software and state of the art machinery.
We had previously been using another 3D CAD software but had been experiencing issues with crashing and productivity issues which had resulted in setout becoming a bottleneck in our business.
We made the decision to transition to TopSolid'Wood as we could see that it would allow us to improve our productivity due to its superior associativity and connectivity. Not only can we model all units with TopSolid'Wood, including complex curved units, but we can make changes to these units on the original model.
Blue Gum Joinery is a manufacturer specialising in commercial and acoustic joinery. We have been operating for 15 years and currently have 5 employees.
In 2014 we decided that we needed to speed up the set-out time for our custom designs. We were already using a popular CAD/CAM software program but it was proving too time consuming.
TopSolid'Wood is a true 3D software solution and this has great benefits for both the set-out and production environments. It gives Blue Gum the ability to create and modify our own construction methods, which is important when designing custom pieces.

In 2014, Capital Veneering conducted a review of their setout processes and replaced their old CAD/CAM software with TopSolid'Wood. Capital Veneering were thorough in their approach and were able to identify that productivity improvements of 25% were possible with TopSolid'Wood over their current solution
Frilingos Commercial Interiors is a privately owned Australian company where we pride ourselves on our dedication to achieving the highest quality end product every time.
Established in 1995 and employing 8 staff, we specialise in the design and manufacture of commercial joinery and shopfitting and are located in Carlton in Sydney's south.
We were already using other CAD/CAM software for the commercial joinery and shopfitting market, but we needed to improve our shop drawing and set-out process. We needed software that would allow us to streamline the set-out process and improve our productivity, not just keep employing additional set-out operators, and TopSolid'Wood was a solution that could do this for us. We saw TopSolid'Wood as a tool that would allow us to look to the long term and make meaningful process improvements within our business.
The ISM Group; I.S.M Interiors is a Victorian based commercial joinery contractor, operating since 1996.
Within the commercial building industry ISM has a reputation for high quality project results built on manufacturing intelligence and commitment to detail. Further to their commercial joinery services, ISMs custom locker division "Lockin" was launched into the market in early 2014.
After researching the market offerings we decided on TopSolid'Wood for our CAD/CAM software needs. We particularly like its advanced, flexible nature and the fact that we quickly established a solid working relationship with the team at IJSPLUS.
MELOZ Manufacturing was established in 2011. We specialise in the manufacturing of custom designed office furniture.
Our head office is based in Mascot. We utilise up to date leading edge software, technology and machinery to ensure we can offer our customers flexibility and a diverse range of products.
In January 2014, a decision was made bring the product design in-house. After a comprehensive market investigation, TopSolid was selected based not only on its flexibility but also on its ability to produce output suitable for our machinery seamlessly. A key factor in the decision-making process was the knowledge and expertise of the IJS consultants that we constantly leverage off.
Select Custom Joinery is a small specialised business designing and creating sustainable joinery / furniture solutions owned by Gino & Robyn Monteleone.
We started the business in 2000 and for a few years it was just us. We have now grown to include 3 skilled staff and the plan is to keep the business at this size.
Due to the custom nature of our business we design a lot of our work in-house. Prior to investing in TopSolid'Wood we were supplying our designs with simple 2D elevations. Our cutlists were entered manually into an Optimiser and then labels and cutlists were printed. We needed to have better presentations of designs, and streamline the cutlist process to make it quicker, and have less errors.
When investigating the different software options on the market I used a clock we had previously designed and built and asked a number of software companies if they could create the clock with their software. Most of the software companies we talked to were honest with their feedback and told us that their software was unsuitable for this type of work. However, the representative from IJSPLUS was confident that it would not be a problem for TopSolid'Wood.
