CounterTop Wizard Question

    I noticed today that there is a Quick Countertop button in the Countertop Wizard but I can’t make it un-greyed out. Is this just an, as yet, un-available feature?

    Also which USERSHAPE do I use if I want to make a shape that will be seen (and covered) by the Countertop Wizard?


    Is there a preference setting for the countertop wizard? I’d love to be able to set different defaults.

    I have this problem with the Countertop Wizard where sometimes it won’t let me select ANY edge for the final step of Select Edge. Sometimes closing Design helps, sometimes closing Design and repairing the COM files works and sometimes closing Design, repairing the COM file and re-booting works and sometimes nothing works and I have to put different cabinets in somewhere else in the design and build the countertop there.

    Hi Chris


    To activate the Countertop Wizard you need to install the 2 available catalogs on

    Under the section 2020 Generic Catalogs, download and install these 2:

    • Countertop Wizard (English-imperial)
    • Countertop Wizard (English-Metric)

    I was unclear. I have the Countertop Wizard, I have all the necessary pieces installed and it work.

    I’d like preference file for the Wizard so I can set default options:


    4″ backsplash or Design Only or 3CM thick countertop or set a default edge style.


    I have this occasional PROBLEM with the wizard, I get to the final Place Edge selection and it won’t let me choose ANY edge. Sometimes it will only let me choose and edge where there is backsplash (which is NOT a valid selection).


    When you open the Countertop Wizard, the very 1st screen down by the Next button there is a drop down box and a button that says “Quick Countertop”. Is this a feature that just doesn’t work yet?

    Hey Chris,

    Would it be possible to send us a kit file where you are experiencing the issue where you are not allowed to place an edge and a document of the choices you made up to that point in the wizard?  I have been trying for a while now and can’t for the life of me recreate the issue and I would like to investigate it further.  You can send it to [email protected] to my attention.

    Thank you

    Hello Chris,

    Regarding your question.  You are correct, the Quick Countertop drop-down selection was a prototype study that was not meant to be accessible.  We will remove it from our next release.

    Good catch!

    Thank you,

    When I come across another issue with the countertop wizard I will certainly send you the design file, so far so good.
