Enhanced Layer Manager and Part Attribute

When the product design is getting increasingly complex, classifying the shapes or components by layer and setting the information quickly by intuitional part attribute form are become important in the design process.


In ZW3D 2018, Layer Manager gets easier to use. It provides a new "Category" attribute to layers so that users can group layers and have more interactions between Manager and entities inside the graphics area.
