The first step to using Wam is to design your parts with one of the many vector design programs available today. Wam will work with any software capable of saving your Design as a .dxf or .svg file. These are universal 2D file formats that many programs support.
It is important to understand that Wam is not a design platform; there are a variety of different design software options that can translate your ideas and paper sketches into digital Designs. These programs vary in complexity and cater to a variety of different industries and applications; they also vary in cost and have different learning curves.
Choosing design software is a personal decision based on your needs and technical abilities. If you are just starting out with two-dimensional design, we suggest starting with lower-cost options like Inkscape or QCAD, then working your way up into the expensive professional software as your abilities grow.
At WAZER we use a variety of software platforms across the team. Our engineering and technical team use AutoCAD, Onshape, Solidworks, and Pro-Engineer. Our business and design team use Inkscape and Adobe Illustrator.
