DWG 2013
The latest CAD DWG format until now is DWG 2013, and ZWCAD+ keeps up to the latest step. Now you don’t need any extra tool to convert high version DWG to low version.

Dynamic block

You can change the parameter of the existing dynamic block from the properties palettes. Creating new dynamic block (command bedit) is not supported yet, we consider that in future plan.

And more…
Of course there are many more great new features, "voice" feature;P, better UI customization:P, and more “cloud” functions:$. Just stay tuned! :loveliness:

It seams like a big move. Just one small question, why name it 2014? The last version is ZWCAD+ 2012, you skipped 2013.

I guess, they will release this version officially in the end of this year or in next year, so it will feel more like using current version in current year. Also, 13 is not a lucky number, haha.

Why not try implementing (include features) CadTools into 2014? :) it would be a certain HIT!

Hi,
I am talking about the "Draw" menu (text, polyline, block, etc.), the surface, contours and triangulation menu, export point, text and circle to excel, profile 3d polyline, remove characters from single line text, coordinate grid drawing, etc. This is all currently included in a separate small and very functional software called CADTOOLS, available for download separately, but it is unfortunately only available for acad users, it does not support ZWCAD.

hi ioan, good news, now CADtools (Version 684) supports ZWCAD+ 2014. Here you can find the news from CADtools developer Lars:

http://glamsen.se/smf/index.php?topic=306


Version 684 now supports ZWCAD+. I haven't tested all commands but it seems that ZWCAD+ is very close to AutoCAD (Almost identical).
I've tested CadTools with the 2014 beta version. To use ZWCAD+ with CadTools, select ZWCAD+ as your CAD version (CadTools Settings)

ZWCAD+ can be found at: www.zwsoft.com
