Welcome to SK8CAD Version 1.7!

SK8CAD: democratizing board fabrication.

With the help of our Patreon supporters, we've made some major updates to SK8CAD - enjoy!

1) Drop Decks: You can now design "drop decks" (boards with a lower platform) using the new drop deck design parameters. Drop decks are commonly used for freeride, sliding, and long distance pushing.

Use the updated User Guide to understand the new parameters and how they work. (Check out the Example Shapes dropdown to see a new sample drop deck design!)

2) New Shape Library Designs: New designs have been added to the shape library, including some drop deck designs.

3) Animated Views: Animations now occur when you select a new view (top, side, iso) to make the design process feel a little more fluid and natural.

Please help us continue to grow SK8CAD by becoming a supporter on Patreon!

(Benefits include new feature testing access and supporter-only content.)

CNC Machined Foam Mold

Mold Info: Molds are CNC machined using Roarockit high-density foam blanks. The top surface will have clear tape applied as a mold release, and 1/2" diameter notches will be made as shown to aid with board alignment.

Shipping: Molds ship in about 5-7 business days. Default shipping is economy ground - contact us if you'd like to know about alternative shipping methods, to pick up your mold, or for larger order quantities.

International customers: Please contact us for a shipping quote to place your order.

If you'd like additional customization - wheel flares, rocker, camber, alternative concaves, etc., please contact us for our design services. There's typically a $100 design fee for such features.
