More Compatible

ZWCAD 2017 supports many widely used systems like Windows, Linux, and Mac.

Drawing exchange becomes more compatible, DGN files can be imported from the mainstream CAD software MicroStation®.

Import DGN

ZWCAD provides familiar Classic and Ribbon interface, you can easily switch to choose the environment you prefer. With the CAD familiar commands and alias that you have already known how to use, you can use ZWCAD immediately without any re-learning cost.

Windows, Linux and Mac

ZWCAD works not just on Windows, but also on Mac and Linux. Cross-platform communication has never been easier.

More Powerful 3D

Render (coming soon)

ZWCAD helps you achieve photorealistic rendering effect without having to pay extra money to buy a rendering plug-in.


ZWCAD enables you to create 2D representation of 3D models and remove accidental Z coordinates in drawings.


Set up the target and camera and see a 3D model in a perspective view.

Easier to Use

64-bit support

You can expect a 20% performance gain as ZWCAD 2017 takes full advantage of 64-bit system.

Undo Snapshot
The Undo Snapshot allows you to preview history when your mouse hovers over the history list. You can go back to any former step by clicking the step directly.

Selection Preview

Objects are automatically highlighted as the cursor hovers over them. This feature is especially helpful when you want to select the exact object you want.

Adaptive Grid

If you zoom in or out of your drawing, the grid spacing is adjusted automatically to be more appropriate for the new magnification.

Advanced Grip Editing

More grips are provided to reshape, move or manipulate objects and tailor your ideas more accurately.

Display DWF Underlay

The attached DWF in the DWG drawing as underlay is visible now.

Hi Liviu,

Thanks for asking.
Currently there is no plan for ZWCAD Mep. If you need some applications similar, you can go to, where you can find many applications for Mechanical, Electrical, etc.
