Thanks for reading! Please reach out in this thread if you have questions, comments, or feedback related to this update.

Does this software have the ability to generate 2D shop drawings that you can submit? I don’t see this in the software. This would be difficult to use on a professional level without the capability.

Hi Todd,

thanks for the feedback. Architectural and Construction/Shop drawings are something we are interested in building support for. Are you able to send me some samples of the types of drawings you have generated or work with in the past? Feel free to email me ben@inventables.com as well.
