Editors' reviewAlthough its layout is rather crude, Raised Panel Doors is a handy program for creating customized doors. The application requires just more than 10MB of space, but it offers several useful features. Templates for measuring single-panel, split, three- and four-panel, and wainscot-panel doors are included. You' simply insert the measurements, eliminating human error in calculating your door alignments. Businesses will appreciate the customer database and its printable lists of door specs for a particular job with customer name included. Though the program's design is primitive at best, some users may appreciate the lack of techno frills. Custom-door manufacturers and do-it-yourselfers will welcome Raised Panel Doors' no-nonsense approach.
Raised Panel Doors performs all the complex calculations required to make your doors fit perfectly every time. Choose from templates for a single-, double-, three-, or four panel decorative doors, specify the width and height of the door opening, the left and right stile widths, top and bottom rail width, mortise or cutter bit depth, overlay settings for each side, door clearance, and number of doors. The program produces a cut list and a graphical representation of the door with all of its pieces (rails, stiles, panels). It's easy to use and is sure to eliminate any problems that can arise from miscalculating door measurements.
