WE KEEP UP TO DATE.

Amazing features are included in every version of our ZWCAD to help you design more.

DEC 2017

ZWCAD 2018 SP1

  • Design Center

    Design Center

    Manages and accesses to drawing contents such as blocks, xrefs, layers and others on your computer or on a network drive.

  • Block Editor

    Block Editor

    Opens an independent area for creating and editing block definitions. You can save as a block, define attributes and edit non uniformly scale block in Block Editor.

  • Layer Previous

    Layer Previous

    Restores the last change or set of changes made to layer settings. Using layer properties manager to change the layers, you can easily input LAYERP to restore the layer settings back.

  • Dimension Inspect

    Dimension Inspect

    Adds or removes inspection information for a selected dimension, so you will know how frequently the manufactured parts should be checked to make sure the dimension and tolerances are precise enough.

  • Helix

    Helix

    Creates a 2D spiral or 3D spring. Along with a spiral path you can create a 3D spring model.

  • Pyramid

    Pyramid

    Creates a 3D solid pyramid. You can easily create a pyramid model by specifying the center base point, the middle edge point, and another point to set the height.

  • Mirror3D

    Mirror3D

    Creates a mirrored copy of selected 3D objects across a mirroring plane. You can determine the mirroring plane by multiple ways such as Object, 3 Points, XY/YX/ZX and others.

  • Time

    Time

    Displays the date and time statistics of a drawing, including the Current Time, Created Time for the drawing, Total Editing Time for the drawing, etc.

AUG 2017

ZWCAD 2018

  • New UI

    New UI

    The new UI has lower brightness, higher contrast, your eyes will feel more comfortable even if you stare on the interface for a long time. At the same time, it is neater and flatter, which is the trending style of software interface. The skin color is close to the background color of the model space, which makes it more professional.

  • Quick Calculator

    Quick Calculator

    Perform calculation within CAD just as you would with a desktop calculator.

  • Solprof

    Solprof

    Project 3D solids onto a 2D plane parallel, create 2D profile images.

  • Mvsetup

    Mvsetup

    Use Mvsetup to set up a drawing for plotting directly from model space. Or on a named layout, you can insert a title block into the drawing, and create a set of layout viewports in the title block area. You can specify a global scale as the ratio between the scale of the title block in the layout and what you have created in model space.

  • Oops

    Oops

    Restores objects erased by the latest ERASE command.

  • Image Quality

    Image Quality

    The ImageQuality command helps you control the display quality of images. The quality setting affects display effects; high-quality images take longer to display. Changing the setting updates the display immediately without regenerating the drawing.

  • Flip the arrow of the dimension

    Flip the arrow of the dimension

    The expected command AIDIMFLIPARROW is now supported in ZWCAD 2018. Click a dimension node to flip the arrowheads in or out.

  • Customize CUI

    Customize CUI

    Customize the classic interface. Partial CUI is supported.

  • Lisp Compiler

    Lisp Compiler

    Lisp Compiler is used to compile .lsp file to .zelx formats, which can be loaded on ZWCAD. It helps users to run Lisp programs more efficiently and developers to protect source codes in security.

APR 2017

ZWCAD 2017 SP3

  • 3D Modeling Dynamic Preview

    3D Modeling Dynamic Preview

    While using commands in Solid Menu, user can preview the 3D model in thedrawing area. The previews are dynamic to show their positions and sizes.

JAN 2017

ZWCAD 2017 SP2

  • Render

    Render

    ZWCAD now can create a realistic rendering of a 3D model to help user to have a clearer vision of a conceptual design.

  • QRcode and Barcode

    QRcode and Barcode

    In design phase, to generate codes including information like project name, drawing name, designer, audit, data and etc., user can use rich scan tool to enter this information to drawing pool effectively just by scanning the codes.

  • Rotate 3D

    Rotate 3D

    ZWCAD now supports command ROTATE3D to specify the axis of rotation usingeither two points.

  • CrashReport Manager

    CrashReport Manager

    User can locate to the folder that stores these reports, check the error reports that has been sent or unsent, and send those unsent ones optionally so as to help assess the stability while working in user environment and improve the quality of ZWCAD.

NOV 2016

ZWCAD 2017 SP1.2

  • Dynamic UCS

    Dynamic UCS

    When user moves the cursor over a 3D solid planar face during the command, the program will align the XY plan of the UCS with the planar face automatically. After the command is finished, the UCS returns to previous setting.

  • Toolbar in Ribbon interface

    Toolbar in Ribbon interface

    ZWCAD can callout tool bars in the ribbon interface.
