Simplify Curves Tool

ViaCAD 2D Includes over 275 drawing and editing tools
Create precision drawings with tools that you would expect and some that will surprise you. Each drawing tool has multiple options for creating objects in your designs. Powerful tools such as rectangular and polar (circular) arrays help you create more precise and complicated patterns. A complete toolkit of trimming options is available to help you make modifications. The included ‘Region Trim’ will do in one click, what most programs take dozens of steps to achieve.

Points, Lines, Arcs, Circles, Ellipses, Splines
Drawing tools provide multiple methods for creating.
Copy/Move, Scale, Rotate, Mirror, stretch
Rectangular array with X and Y controls
Polar array with customisable angles and spacing
Trimming tools include Trim, Extend, and Break.
Customisable Fillet and Chamfer
And much more!

Drawing precisely is easy with ViaCAD. The LogiCursor™ guides your cursor to potential point selections in the drawing; anticipating your next action. Editing is just as easy with the Gripper; adding drag and drop capabilities to simple and more complex edits. Customizable grids add another level of ease to drawing and editing. The grids provide precision drag and drop in rectangular, polar (circular), and isometric layouts.

Precision Drafting and Annotations
ViaCAD 2D is a robust design documentation tool with over 20 customisable dimension styles including industry dimension formats. Import a 3D model and the Auto 3D to 2D feature will create multiple 2D views to document 3D models created in other software.

Automatically converts an imported 3D model to 2D views
26 dimension styles
Import bitmaps for logos and reference images
Spell Check is provided for another level of accuracy
