Create Basketball and Sport Courts

Whether you want a full-size basketball court or a smaller sport court for other activities, Coping Draw Mode provides the flexibility to customize the dimensions according to your specific needs.
For added convenience, you can import a Background Image of a court and use it as a reference to trace the lines accurately in Coping Draw Mode.
Once you have defined the court lines, head to the Materials Stage to choose the surface material for your court.
With Coping Draw Mode, creating a basketball or sport court becomes a seamless process. Whether you're designing a court for personal use or for a commercial space, this feature provides the tools and flexibility to bring your vision to life.
