Before you begin your design please remember we offer free design services if you upload images taken from our Light Panel to the web portal (see working with CAD files if you have .dwg, step, dxf or other files).
If you choose to design your own Foam Inlay or Shadow Board the third step in the OSAAP workflow is to edit your layout in BlueShadow. To begin the edit process click the "Edit" icon on the first page of BlueShadow. A list of editing drop-downs appear on the right side of the screen. The editing drop-downs offer a linear workflow 1 thru 8 for to get your layout ready for our process.
