Woodcraft is designed to help professional and budding carpenters draft their next masterpiece. Combining elements of Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and 3D modelling in a delightful and intuitive package, Woodcraft can tackle most woodworking projects: from decks to framing, simple furniture to backyard sheds. Woodcraft enables you to completely design your next project. Woodcraft is optimally suited to work on dimensional lumber projects.

- 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 and alignment tool.

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

- Work with rough or finished lumber. When using finished lumber, a 2" x 4" correctly measures 1 1/2" x 3 1/2" while in rough lumber mode it will measure 2" x 4".

- 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.

- Generate a Project Booklet, which can then be e-mailed, printed to any AirPrint connected printer or opened in any application that supports PDF documents.

- See your project overlaid on top of photographs using Photograph Mode (available as an in-app purchase).

- 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.
