There are many surfboard design CAD applications
We are currently using Shape 3d to make production Spacesticks
If a customer has access to the free version of Shape3D they can make a shape and send us the dimensions for us to create
Doesn't need to be the actual file - we just convert
my question is what people think is the MOST widely used CAD software specifically for boards?
We would like to get the three top used apps in our arsenal here
And different countries also seem to prefer different apps....though they almost all convert
We would like to be able to accept individuals personal designs in as many formats as possible---we shape and laminate custom boards using Cush soft skin technology
Maybe this should be under DESIGN but I just didn't want the topic to get lost in the mix
Would be Thankful for any responses!

Akushaper is great.
But it's not easy. I have 30 years cad experience, and it took me many, many hours to create great shapes. It's not only ability to use cad, but also knowing what to do, and translating what's on the screen to what's going to be in reality.
Shaping a board in cad requires that you know what a good design is to fit the needs.
