3D Live was founded in 2010 as a side project to understand more about the challenges cabinet makers faced running a joinery business. The concept of 3D Live evolved into a full time passion for us in February 2013 when we decided it was time to take the leap and really shake the industry up. We have collectively been involved in CAD/CAM software for more than 15 years and realised that consumers were searching for a company that could offer expert services and great value software at a fair price. We seized the opportunity and haven’t looked back since.


cm-basic-icon We are changing the way cabinet makers do business, discovering, innovating and implementing technology that will reshape the industry



After years of working with all the leading CAD/CAM software solutions for the cabinet making industry we decided to distribute CabMaster software as it is the best fit for our mission and core values. CabMaster is an innovative application available at a fair price.


We only hire and associate ourselves with people who share our mission and values. It is our belief that it doesn’t matter how good technology is, it is only as good as the people supporting it!


The goal of every business is to make money. The best technology and the best people don’t mean anything if you’re not making money. We believe in return on investment and ensure every service and product we offer delivers the maximum return on your investment.


Live refers to the unique way in which the three dimensions of Technology, People and Profit need to exist simultaneously. All three of these dimensions need to co-exist to function. Without one of the dimensions our business model would be as useful as a kitchen stool with two legs.

Labels are compatible with everyday laser printers so you don’t need to invest in expensive printing equipment.

  • I switched from Cabinet Vision to CabMaster about a year ago and haven't looked back. CabMaster is easy to use, fast and affordable. I am easily able to design and nest enough jobs to keep the entire factory busy.

  • We have had the CabMaster software for over 3 months now and are extremely happy with our choice. CabMaster software is easy to use, and has lots of unique and helpful features. In my opinion CabMaster has the most comprehensive library with Australian construction methods in mind.

  • Being from the remote area of the Snowy Mountains service is the most important thing I looked for in a software provider. 3D Live has exceeded my expectations. Scheduling onsite training was so easy I could have mistaken them for a local company. Their on line support service is fast and easy to use. I recommend them highly
