Welcome to PolyCAD! The helpfile begins by covering some of the ideas behind PolyCAD, going on to describe the different ways the software can be used to design hull forms and surfaces. A detailed tutorial section provides a step-by-step guide to using the design tools including how to set the user interface up. Following sections provide a reference for each of the CAD entities and the different file interfaces the file supports.
An overview of the different activities PolyCAD can be used to support.
