What’s new in JoinerCAD

Version 2.4.4


  • Improved Miter algorithm, which was not  working correctly in a specific situation.
  • A small Dress up bug was fixed which caused crashes of Autodesk Fusion.
  • Couple small fixes in Material Editor, now it should work more flawlessly. 

Version 2.4.3


  • Issue when Material editor was not starting in macOS.
  • BOM issue when material summary quantities were calculated incorrectly in macOS.
  • Other small bug fixed.

Version 2.4.2


  • We’ve added a new keyword {Item.PartName} which extracts Part Name property from Fusion360 and can be displayed in a BOM or final report.
  • For safety reasons, we’ve turned on the backup function for JoinerCAD.db file. So, now after every Save click in a Material Editor, we’ll create a backup file, which is stored in ...\WW Data\DB backup directory.
  • In a very specific situations JoinerCAD.db file has been corrupted and users weren’t able to use JoinerCAD. Now we are dealing with this issue and JoinerCAD database file shouldn’t ruin your day and projects.
  • Yet another set of Hardware attachment bugfixes. More and more users are implementing hardware attachment mechanisms in their workflows, this means that we are getting feedback on how you are using Smart Hardware Attachment, and we can improve this module.
  • If you are using older macOS and had problems with JoinerCAD, we have good news for you. We were able to find reasons why users with older macOS versions couldn’t use JoinerCAD. Let’s give it a try for this release if you are user with an older machine.
  • Other small fixes and improvements.

Version 2.4.1


  • We've updated some internal mechanisms which generate thumbnails. Now users should get more accurate results and better images.
  • Updated Hardware models. If you already have new Smart Hardware samples, you can download updated models and replace existing ones from Here and Here.
  • Some users have faced issues when Material Assignment dialog does not appear.
  • In a certain situation, smart hardware refresh didn't work after model geometry changes.
  • Other small tweaks and fixes which should make your experience better. 

Version 2.4.0


  • Smart Hardware attachment. A new tool has been developed that allows users to quickly and easily insert, modify and update hardware components if geometry changes. This function has analysis mechanisms so that you can quickly and easily place hardware components, knobs or feet. This new function is one of the largest in the history of JoinerCAD.
  • Videos indication. Users will be able to see an indication whenever a new video appears on our YouTube channel. Watch the toolbar and when the Video icon changes, click on it and you will immediately be directed to our YouTube channel where you can see the latest videos.
  • Messaging platform. We have introduced a user messaging tool that will allow us to deliver important messages directly to the JoinerCAD application environment. You will always be informed when new samples are added or important version changes are made. 
  • New Samples. The Smart Hardware attachment command would be worth very little if there were no hardware samples for you to take and use. We have added them and they will be available upon installation of our sample library. And if you have already installed it, here is a link with instructions on how to download the Smart Hardware components and install them.  You can download them from here.
  • Other small fixes. The software is constantly being developed and improved. If we have found bugs ourselves or you have reported them to us, we have fixed them or made small improvements. All of them are included in this update.
