Features and Highlights
Efficiency and productivity
Expand your visual communication expertise with the precision of superior drafting and design tools available in the tool. With an enhanced user interface and new time-saving features, you can increase workflow and deliver impressive, visually rich CAD designs.
Get the design power you need with an expansive collection of professional drafting tools that deliver the control and detail you require for any project. The program offers new helix tools for 2D spirals, advanced table tools, and a MultiLeader tool to configure and adjust callouts as your drawings evolve.
Experience the skillful and exacting results of the 3D capabilities in the tool, and transition your drawings from 2D drafting into advanced 3D designs. With an array of expert and intuitive 3D tools, including the enhanced EntityGrips and Properties palette, you are well equipped to move from project sketches to 3D output and printing.
Compatibility and optimization
Streamline project sharing with both internal teams and external suppliers. The app is fully compatible with the latest version, AutoCAD. DWG file format, to ensure worry-free collaboration with business partners, and includes innovative customization and automation support options to align with any working environment.
Native .DWG files
Open, edit and save files in .DWG format for easy collaboration with colleagues and suppliers. Increase project sharing with both internal teams and external suppliers using the latest version, AutoCAD. DWG file format, to ensure worry-free collaboration with business partners.
Use the new ExportTable command to export tables in a comma separated format (CSV), and import CSV files in Microsoft Excel or database applications. In tables, you can add formulas into cells plus insert, delete, merge or resize cells, rows and columns within existing tables.
Increase the shaping possibilities using the new Helix tool to create 2D spirals and 3D helixes to provide any object with a three-dimensional shape in a single layer around a cylindrical shape, such as a spring or spiral staircase.
MultiLeader and Smart Dimension tools
Draw, edit and configure callouts with multiple leader lines. This handy tool also allows you to add and remove leader lines to and from the MultiLeaders to adjust and edit as your drawing changes. Use dimension tools for accurate measurements, plus the Smart Dimension tool will suggest the most appropriate and precise dimension type automatically.
Auto-Completion for commands
Streamline your workflow with a UI that allows you to apply an auto-completion function for command and variable names as you type them. In addition, it can display a list of suggested command and variable names that will contain your typed substring.
Patterns along paths
Utilize the Pattern commands to create copies of specified objects along a path. The established path can be in various shapes, such as a line, polyline, arc, circle, ellipse, or spline, plus the alignment options will control the pattern’s final appearance.
Cut quickly with confidence using the handy Trim and PowerTrim tools to precisely edit shapes including hatches and solid, single-color or multicolor-gradient fills. Once the divisions are made, the resulting hatch and color fills will maintain their association to subsequent boundary objects and remain as one object.
In-place text editing
Create or modify existing text with the ability to quickly stack text and paste formatted text from Microsoft Word within your project. It’s ideal for controlling the font, appearance and location of text blocks.
Windows ribbon UI
Increase productivity with the customizable ribbon UI* workspaces and use the contextual ribbon options to select and implement the various design tools you need, such as tables, in-place text editing and more.
Save valuable drawing time by inserting dynamic blocks from AutoCAD and then accessing the block settings and attributes for your own .DWG files in the tool.
CAD file standards verification
The software can verify a CAD drawing against drawing standards such as those stored in .DWS files. This verification will detect and repair industry-standard violations to ensure compliant CAD drawings.
Transition from 2D to 3D
Create your 2D design in the app or create 2D sketches in CorelDRAW. Import the sketch into Corel CAD* and transform the 2D sketch to 3D. Extrude, revolve or sweep 2D entities along a path to progress from 2D drafting into 3D modeling.
Print 3D designs
Export multiple 3D solid objects to .STL (Stereolithography), the most commonly used file format for 3D prints. Print 3D prototypes using .STL support for direct connection to 3D printers or output to 3rd party 3D printing services.
Work with GIS files
Visualize maps and geographic models created by geographic information systems (GIS) applications with support for ESRI Shape files (.SHP).
Exchange 3D files with colleagues and suppliers
Open and work with 3D models with support for the ACIS model file format (.SAT) that you can share with co-workers and 3D manufacturers.
Easy file sharing
Collaborate and share more easily with colleagues and clients with support for leading formats, including .PDF, .SVG, .EPS and .DWF.
Note: 30 days trial version. To activate printing and saving during the trial period, you need to register your product (otherwise, the product will run in demo mode).
