Dear Colleagues, We are glad to announce the release of the new version of the K3-Cottage software - the K3-Cottage 7.4. Lot's of new usefull features have been introduced, new joints added, interface renewed, errors corrected. The detailed description of all the innovations can be seen in the PDF K3-Cottage 7.4 What's New file. Take advantage of the newer version and get back with any questions!
K3-Cottage is a stand-alone professional application intended for 3D design of log and timber houses and log structures of all kinds. The designer creates the detailed 3D model while the system automatically generates the complete set of documentation required both for MANUFACTURE and ASSEMBLAGE of the future house.
The uniqueness of the program lies in the possibility to directly work with the specific components of the log house and to alter their parameters at any time. The designer can add and delete log courses from walls, adjust log profile dimensions at any stage of the project, define shape and type of log (board) notches and joints, add through bolts, treenails and screwjacks and much more.
The program features a specially developed log cutting optimization algorithm. When the house model is ready the system makes calculations and marks the future kit details on the blank logs in such a way that the residue becomes minimum possible. In addition to this the system allows to cut blanks of different size at a time, to cut several projects simultaneously and to set user cutting rules. Lots of our customers migrate from their CNC preinstalled cutting applications to Cottage cutting.
