With intuitive, easy-to-use tools at your fingertips, ViaCAD 2D delivers all the power you need to create professional-grade 2D CAD drawings, regardless of experience. A simple interface combined with video tutorials, interactive prompts, and other unique features, ViaCAD makes 2D design fast and easy.
ViaCAD 2D is a powerful, yet easy to use, design, drafting, and technical illustration tool. ViaCAD 2D has a comprehensive set of drafting and annotation tools making it the perfect choice for producing anything from simple sketches to fully dimensioned, standards compliant, production ready drawings.
Ease of Use
Whether you’re designing a new floor plan for your house or creating a 2D mechanical drawing, ViaCAD 2D provides an environment that lets you focus on the design and not the software. The innovative user interface allows you to work freely with the intuitive snaps and alignments. Combined with the innovative tool prompts, hints, and online help, even the novice designer can quickly get up to speed with ViaCAD.
Comprehensive Drafting Tools
ViaCAD 2D supports a wealth of curve creation and editing tools including access to over 275 tools. Creation tools include numerous
methods for constructing points, lines, splines, arcs, circles, ellipses, and rho valued conics. Editing tools exist for changing parameter values of curves, localized and global edits using transformations such translating, rotating, and scaling. Additional utilities are available for filleting, filling, smoothing, chamfering, trimming, breaking, elevating, and extending.
Drawing & Annotation Capabilities
ViaCAD 2D is one of the industry’s first 2D drafting tools that is capable of assimilating 3D data in a meaningful manner. ViaCAD 2D can automatically create precise wireframe and hidden line drawings from any 3D component or assembly. This unique functionality almost entirely eliminates the laborious and time consuming task of generating production ready drawings manually. Our drawing tools will not only create accurate 2D drawing views from 3D imported parts but provide support for the creation of auxiliary, detail, and section views.
Unlike other conceptual drafting tools, ViaCAD 2D uses an industry standing precise kernel that facilitates the sharing of design information using SAT, IGES, STEP, and DXF/DWG industry standard file formats.
Whether for casual, hobby, or professional use, ViaCAD’s productivity makes your project more enjoyable right from the start.
