Sketch a chair, really!!!

hey Guys,

this program looks VERY cool if you ask me,
it's called sketch a chair, really... sketch a chair!!!
Then you can print it on paper, or make full size models,
the program seems to be free.

You need to install Java for the program to work. There is no DXF option for saving files. You can only save to PDF. I'm sure there is a way to convert PDF to DXF for cutting though. The only question is how accurate would the conversion be? Any experts on this out there??

you can open the pdf with illustrator and export in dxf
maybe inkscape can do it as well?

no thickness control (useful only with cardboard or paper)!

Fabrice,

I thought I have seen under advanced where you can control the thickness of the material.
Here on my computer (OSX with windows parallels) the tool didn't work well, so I couldn't really go from start to finish.
