New Features:

Contour Highlight Tool

The new Contour highlight 3D view gives more insight in the shape of your concaves and other bottom contours. Blend your concave and rail designs in seconds!

Heres what our shapers are saying: "Like I said in the past, the AkuShaper 3D Bay view is the best and most accurate I have seen in the market"

Rail Apex & Tuck Visual Tool

The new "Rail line" visualization features ensure much better feedback on the smoothness of your rail curves.

Here's what our shapers are saying: "I just lost 5 hours of hands on work to look at... How bloody good the new changes are, haha frothing, good job!"
