QuickCAD options are specific to a type of geometry, e.g. dome ended cylinders. The user enters basic parameters such as wind angle, cylinder diameter, band-width etc. This data is saved as a .PAR file and can be saved, retrieved or edited. Using this data the mandrel data, fibre path data and payout data is automatically created and then the payout path data is post-processed to produce NC data by the normal options.

The parameters for different the options are discussed in the following sections.
