Creative Woodturner has a different page for each stage in the woodturning design process. By working through the pages, you are introduced to the functions of the software as you need them.

The design page

The design page is where you draw the shape of your woodturning. The automatic-mirrored center line and instantly updated 3D view make it as easy as possible to draw your woodturning.
