Start designing in a snap with the best bang-for-your-buck 2D CAD program available. ViaCAD 2D is packed with unique tools to help you create precision drawings, layouts, schematics, and plans easily. Start with a sketch or draw from scratch; a comprehensive set of tools let you edit, modify, and add details to your drawing. Perfect for all types of projects, including: architectural drawings, mechanical, electrical, furniture, and DIY plans.

ViaCAD 2D/3D KEY FEATURES

  • Powerful 3D tools such as mesh, surface, and solid modelling, blending, chamfering, and shelling
  • 3D printing verification tools
  • Extensive 2D drafting tools (text, dimensions, 3D to 2D drawing generation tools, bill of materials)
  • LogiCursor™ allows drawing precisely with your mouse and cursor in both 2D and 3D. It thinks as you draw
  • Push/Pull Modelling delivers intuitive editing of your 3D models, allowing 3D surfaces to be edited with your mouse and cursor

Powerful Solid Modelling

ViaCAD™ provides solid modeling technology found in much higher end products. There is a unique tie between 2D and 3D; which means you can edit 2D profiles used to create 3D objects and the 3D shape will automatically update.

  • Feature-based History Tree for editing
  • Powerful 3D editing tools such as blending, chamfering, and shelling
  • A complete design tool with extrusions, Booleans, surface modeling for more complex smooth surfaces
  • Precise geometry suitable for ‘concept to manufacturing’
  • Tools to create 3D from 2D shapes

ViaCAD™ is solid modeling made easy

Creating 3D models is easy with ViaCAD™, regardless of the design’s complexity. The LogiCursor™ will guide your cursor to help you create drafting documents or even align points in 3D. Editing is as easy as drag and drop with the Gripper™.

  • The LogiCursor™ allows drawing precisely with your mouse and cursor in both 2D and 3D, aligning your cursor with existing points in your drawing.
  • The Gripper provides click and drag style editing for moving, copying, scaling and rotating parts of the drawing, even faces.
  • Push/Pull Modeling delivers intuitive editing of your 3D models, allowing 3D surfaces to be editing with your mouse and cursor.
  • Customizable Grids can be configured as rectangular, polar (circular), and even Isometric.
  • 26,000 symbols are included to speed up your designing!
