Buda Woodworks uses software to automate processes.

Buda Woodworks uses Microvellum software to streamline its processes. 

Buda Woodworks was originally founded as a countertop laminate company, but has now evolved into what management calls a high-end architectural woodwork company.

As the company has grown, it has invested in new technology including software from Microvellum. T. J. Harais, CEO at Buda Woodworks, said that with Microvellum, "we could now do things we never could before."

Jason Hair, engineering manager at Buda Woodworks, added that the software has enabled the company to upgrade its manual processes. "Whether it was cut building or manually creating G-code for the machine, it was not sustainable for the growth we have experienced over the last years. We were able to automate our engineering processes."
