Parametric drawing is a definite breakthrough in how we design, for it allows us to take full control of the size, position, and relationship of every object in the drawing. You don

Using table in drawings will be a very efficient way to display and manage a list or a series of data. No matter it

Field


Field function is an easy way to display the drawing information, including documents, date and time, plot information, objects, hyperlinks and expressions. By using them, you can easily know the latest information about your current drawing, since all of them can update themselves automatically.






Solid Profiles


The new Solprof (solid profiling) feature enables you to create profiles of 3D solids with an ease. You can get 2D and 3D profile line, as you prefer. Hidden lines and visible lines can be placed onto different layers automatically.

PDF Plotter


Newly integrated into ZWCAD 2011 is PDF plotter, which plots drawings to high quality PDF files. The output supports OLE objects, raster images, gradient hatches, and plot stamps. In addition, the PDF file can contain layer information from the drawing - just like what you see in the original. PDF files make it very convenient to share your drawings with customers, without giving them the originals of your design.

ESnap Improvements




  • The speed of entity snap acquisition has been improved through the use of a different structure for the snap mechanism.
  • Smart selection highlighting is now supported to highlight the object at which you are pointing. (see figure below)
  • The new magnet snap means that once your cursor moves near a snap marker, it is immediately attracted to the exact snap point.

Larger Raster Images


ZWCAD now allows you to insert raster images that are larger than 256MB. The processing of these large images is faster. Also enhanced is the correct insertion of images in PCX format.








Reference Editing Improved


The reference editing function has been redesigned in ZWCAD 2011 so that the renewed Refedit command improves both speed and accuracy of in-place reference editing.



Dimension Line Breaks


Use any object to break dimension lines automatically, or break the dimension line at any point manually. Despite the gap making the line look broken, the dimension is still a whole. And same command also removes breaks from dimension lines.

Mtext in Attributes


A new kind of attribute is available in ZWCAD 2011, Mtext. This means that you can now input multiple lines of text in attributes. This is very helpful when you need to specify a lot of information using attributes, such as detailed product descriptions.



Online Help

You are no longer alone with out-of-date help documents. Online help is now accessible to every user, no matter the ZWCAD version being used. And all teaching movies are also directly available to watch online, instead of taking lots of time to download them.

ZRX


Many new classes have been added to the ZRX interface, such as MFCs (Microsoft foundation classes), the load-on-demand functions, double-click protocol functions, and ZRX entrance messages. These make it easier for users to write more powerful applications, and to migrate their old ARX applications to ZWCAD in less time.





LISP / VBA


LISP and VBA are also enhanced in ZWCAD 2011. The quality of some functions, like Vlr (VL reactors) and AutoLISP functions are improved. New functions have been added to the Vlax and Vl series. We added new UI objects, methods, properties and events to make VBA more powerful.

All difference between ZWCAD Standard and Professional version are functionality.
ZWCAD Professional version has all functions that standard version has, and with two more function: (1)3D modeling,editing and rendering (2) support VBA

Can you tell me what kind of problem you have with ZWCAD?
