Not bad

Seat cut and plumb cut are round the wrong way. Needs updating

Developer Response ,

Check out our latest update the problem you are experiencing is fully addressed in the help file because of the way the power mitre saws are marked out, when making a square cut which is 90 deg the saw will be marked 0 deg totally confusing???? resulting in some users thinking the app is at fault when it’s all down to the saw markings.

Dissapointed

Got the app and none of the dimensions it figures out are correct so basically a complete waste of money and if you cut a roof off it on the ground would end up costing you a fortune as every rafter would be the wrong length and the quantities would be well more than required extremely dissapointed

Developer Response ,

Would you please email me with your issues and you will be surprised how much support we will give you to resolve your problems with our program that we know works 100%.
