The best of Galaad is of course the user. The software is not a goal on its own, but a simple tool for the imagination, the creativity and the technical skill, even if breaking cutters always teaches how to mill. Though Galaad has been existing since 1992 with about 10000 licences provided, the originality and ambition it contributed remains surprising today. Therefore, instead of a list of testifying messages like "Well done, your software is fantastic!" or "everthing works, thanks again!" signed by unverifiable X or Y, it has been considered more simple and self-demonstrating to show what users dared to create with the help of Galaad, some of them having only a few months of experience. So this page is dedicated to a few addicts who have learned how to get the best value from the software, with great thanks for their pictures... and also their suggestions, because most of the functions in Galaad come from ideas that were exposed by those who use it everyday, sometimes strange, we dare to say, but most of them relevant. Discovering what a skilled user has been able to create is far the most beautiful reward for a developer.

If you too have pictures of your best creations, whoever you are - professional, teacher or skilled amateur - please do not hesitate to send them. It will be a pleasure to add them to this page with your name & address. One condition: the workpieces must have been entirely made with Galaad (design and machining), like all those displayed below. Also, if you have built a machine that uses original, cute or ambitious solutions, there is enough room here to show it.
