Beginner or expert, ViaCAD 2D/3D combines intuitive tools with precision features creating professional results. ViaCAD 2D/3D’s innovative visual interface provides feedback and works with you through out the design process, enhancing your creativity.
Precision Digital Models
ViaCAD 2D/3D is a precise software application that provides state of the art modelling tools without sacrificing speed and ease of use. Use ViaCAD 2D/3D to explore and develop new product concepts using a variety of modelling methods including curves, surfaces, and solids all seamlessly integrated into a user friendly design environment.
Ease of Use
Simple interface and tools yield impressive, professional results. Use the patent pending 2D/3D user interface to work comfortably in 2D. Switch at any time to 3D to add depth and features if you choose. Innovative LogiCursor™ technology aids in visually anticipating your moves, assisting throughout the design process whether you are designing in 2D or 3D.
ViaCAD 2D/3D supports an integrated collection of 2D, 3D, surface, and solid modelling tools. You choose the tools or combination of tools you need for the task at hand. The different construction methods work together with transparent associativity and a history tree to provide rapid design modifications.
Versatile Modeling Methods
ViaCAD 2D/3D is not your typical widget based modeler found in the Mechanical CAD communities. ViaCAD 2D/3D was designed from the ground up to make complex shapes using a variety of modeling practices. Designers can choose from a variety of integrated design methods that include:
• Curves (Points, Lines, Splines, Arcs, Ellipses, Conics)
• Solids (Primitives, Profile Based, Surface Based, Features)
• Features (Fillet, Chamfer, Shell, Boss, Holes, Protrude, Cutout )
• Local Face (Modify foreign parts without history)
• Warp (Bend, twist, stretch NURB bodies independent of history)
ViaCAD 2D/3D shares data with AutoCAD™ and Adobe Illustrator™. ViaCAD 2D/3D uses a precise kernel that shares data using SAT, IGES, STEP, and DXF/DWG. For facet based systems, ViaCAD 2D/3D exports to OBJ, STL, and VRML formats.
Whether for casual, hobby, or professional use, ViaCAD’s productivity makes your project more enjoyable right from the start.
