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!
