The first pre-alpha release of lignumCAD is now available. lignumCAD is a Computer-Aided Design (CAD) program geared specifically
to aid the woodworker in designing custom furniture and other hand-made
objects. It supports both two-dimensional and three-dimensional
representations of the design with full parametric interrelations.
Additional features include optimized layout of the bill of materials
on custom stock and photo-realistic rendering of the final design.
