What Special Glass-Related Software Do You Use In Your Glass Shop?

By Paul Bieber

There are so many packages out there for shower doors, optimization and management of cutting, for fabrication of heavy glass, manufacturing of IG, tempered and lami. Then we get into the metal work, optimizing the cutting, where to drill holes, what degree was that mitre?

Let’s talk about software a little bit. Help me on this as it has been 16 years since I ran our fabrication company. In software terms, that is about three generations ago. Drop me an email at, or simply reply to this blog. Let me know which programs you use, which are easy and which are hard to use. Most importantly, let me know which are a good value for your usage.

I’ll write a follow-up to this in a couple of weeks. Out of privacy, I won’t write your name on anything and won’t directly quote anyone, but I will get a feel from each response.

Remember, this can be any glass-related program you use. Again, just reply to this blog, or send directly to: If you would like to discuss your programs’ pluses or otherwise, feel free to call me at 603-242-3521.
