Description

ViaCAD™ Pro offers a seamless progression for CAD hobbyists looking to take their skills to the next level. Designed with professionals in mind, ViaCAD™ Pro delivers the flexibility of mesh-based modelling to help you go quickly from idea to 3D concept. The power of ViaCAD’s™ precision solid modelling and drafting toolsets make it perfect for designing objects and parts, manufacturing, and prototyping projects. The addition of mesh-based modelling coupled with subdivision technology makes creating 3D conceptual drawings a snap. It also contains all the great features of ViaCAD™ 2D/3D, so working in the 2D space is incredibly intuitive and efficient.
Advanced 3D Modelling & Production Design
Insane power at an extraordinary price, ViaCAD™ Pro offers precision solid modelling and drafting toolsets, enabling advanced 3D prototyping, photorealistic rendering, and design for products and packaging.

Automatic 2D Converter

Logicursor
ViaCAD Pro makes it easy to go from idea to design!
The wide selection of tools provided in ViaCAD Pro means the right tool for the task is just a mouse click away.

Multiple Viewports provide 2, 3 even 4 views of the same design and allows drawing between them. Watch how your editing affects the overall project by viewing at different angles all at once.
Customisable Grids make drawing patterns of objects quick and easy.
The LogiCursor and Gripper provide precision drawing and editing with your mouse.
Unlimited Undo
80 minutes of training videos included

Conceptual Designs with ViaCAD Pro
Use the complete set of mesh design tools to create organic shapes easily. ViaCAD Pro includes subdivision technology to refine meshes and go from course to smooth surfaces. Push/Pull Modelling provides a tactile method of editing meshes one small surface at a time if needed.

Mesh primitives to start your designs
Subdivision technology to refine mesh surfaces
Push/Pull Modelling to edit mesh shapes organically


ViaCAD Pro provides robust 3D modelling tools.
ViaCAD provides powerful solid modelling technology found in much higher end products. Additionally, ViaCAD Pro delivers surface modelling tools to expand design capabilities.

Feature-based History Tree for editing
Powerful 3D editing tools such as blending, chamfering, and shelling
A complete design tool with extrusions, Booleans, surface modelling for more complex smooth surfaces
Precise geometry suitable for ‘concept to manufacturing’
Associative surface modeling


Woodworking and Architectural tools
ViaCAD Pro includes tools to speed up woodworking designs. You can quickly create otherwise tedious joints such as Dado joints and miter joints. The furniture that you design might just be for your new house or office. The plans for those buildings can be created with ViaCAD Pro as well as 3D views.

Woodworking Joints: rabbet, miter joints, and Dovetails
Woodworking Dado joints including options for Through, Stopped or Blind
Woodworking Edge Treatments:   Cove, round, bullnose, Dupont, Waterfall, Ogee, Custom
Woodworking Tongue & Groove
Architectural Wall tools
Composite walls to show materials
Parametric doors and windows
Instant 3D walls, roofs, and floor slabs


New Pocket Hole Feature

New Rapid Render Wood Material
Prototyping and Collaborating
ViaCAD Pro is a precise 3D modelling tool that can be used for manufacturing designs as well as 3D Printer prototypes.
ViaCAD is built with professional level technology providing speed, precision, and compatibility. Compatibility with AutoCAD® 2017 and other products means you can share your designs with others. Using ACIS®-based geometry means you are creating with the same technology used by others using software costing thousands of dollars.

Includes 19 file formats to share your designs.
