Getting Started

When you first start the software, these options appear:


  • New – Create a new Drawing
  • Open – Opens an existing drawing from your folder of saved roofs
  • Recent – Opens a list of your most recent drawings
  • Load – Opens a drawing from a database (If you have a database* of saved roofs)
  • Cancel – Closes this menu leaving you at the main screen


*This only applies if you run UDesign off a server and have several people using the same version. Individual jobs will need to be saved in their relevant folders. Your company should provide more information on this.


Creating a New Design

When you select New UDesign will open the Conservatory Design Picker which includes a list of conservatory templates. You open these designs by double-clicking the roof or selecting a design and pressing OK.
