Faster and Stabler as Always

More to the greatly improved efficiency of the commonly used commands in ZWCAD 2020 Official, two useful commands in ZWCAD 2020 SP1 perform even faster and better. Hidden Shade Plotting can now run 10 times faster, accelerating especially mechanical and piping design. As for REFEDIT, a great helper for your daily work, it can be 200% faster. Meanwhile, stability has never been compromised.


Customized Settings Migration for a Consistent Working Environment

If you have particular work habits, this new feature is exactly what you need. Your preferred settings for UI, commands, graphics, plotting, etc. can be easily migrated from earlier versions (ZWCAD 2018/ZWCAD 2019) to ZWCAD 2020 SP1.

Blockbreak: Insert Blocks into Entities without Further Trimming

Blockbreak can help you conveniently insert a block into an entity. There are two ways to do it with different effects – by Wipeout, the entity will be covered but not broken by the block; while by Break, it will be broken. This new feature particularly benefits electrical and architectural design.


More Accurate PDF Plotting

Raster images, line weights, and line colors can now be plotted more accurately to finer but smaller PDF files, accelerating your plotting process. For example, their plotting scale totally matches the actual size of the paper. What’s more, in a PDF viewer, you can easily find, select and copy the texts in PDF files to quickly acquire the information needed.

Digitally Sign and Validate DWFx Files

Digital signatures can be attached to not only DWG files, but also DWFx ones now. You can also sign them and check the validity of the signatures in batches. Once a DWFx file is digitally signed, it is protected from being copied and modified, ensuring the authenticity of files.


Apart from the aforementioned new features and improvements, there are plenty more functions optimized in ZWCAD 2020 SP1 to help you work more productively. Fast, stable and innovative. That’s how we envisioned and enhanced it.
