December 16, 2011 | 12:10 am CST

Woodcraft is designed to help professional and budding carpenters draft their next masterpiece. Combining elements of Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and 3D modeling in a delightful and intuitive package, Woodcraft can tackle any woodworking project: from decks to benches, furniture to backyard sheds. Woodcraft enables you to completely design your next project.

 

- Shop with confidence using the fully-automated Bill of materials.

 

- Design in 2D or 3D and seamlessly switch between both views. Our intuitive view navigation system solves usability problems common in similar applications.

 

- Align, rotate and move lumber precisely with the extensive grid settings.

 

- Create your own lumber types when the app doesn't provide them by default.

 

- Work with rough or finished lumber.

 

- Measure distances and refer to the on-screen measurements when building your project. Precision can be as fine as 1/64th of an inch!

 

- Work in metric or imperial units.

 

- Use tools such as the hand saw or table saw to cut lumber graphically and precisely.

 

- Transfer your projects by email or iTunes between iOS devices: Woodcraft is a universal app.

 

- Download and share projects with the Woodcraft community in the online gallery and gain Twitter followers in the process.
