ViaCAD Pro

ViaCAD Pro v10 – Advanced CAD Design Software: 3D Modeling, Prototyping, and Photorealistic Rendering


Designed with professionals in mind, ViaCAD Pro delivers the flexibility of mesh-based modeling to help you go quickly from idea to 3D concept. The power of ViaCAD’s precision solid modeling and drafting toolsets make it perfect for designing objects and parts, manufacturing, and prototyping projects.

The addition of mesh-based modeling coupled with subdivision technology makes creating 3D conceptual drawings a snap. And it contains all the great features of ViaCAD 2D/3D, so working in the 2D space is incredibly intuitive and efficient.

KEY FEATURES

  • Design complex organic shapes with extensive NURB surface modeling tools
  • Subdivision technology to refine meshes and go from coarse to smooth surfaces
  • Integrated Photo Realistic Rendering and support for Keyshot Live Linking
  • Push/Pull Modeling delivers intuitive editing of your 3D models, allowing 3D surfaces to be edited with your mouse and cursor
  • Powerful 3D editing tools such as blending, chamfering, and shelling
  • Robust Architectural and Woodworking tools (such as rabbet, miter and dovetail joints, and pocket holes)
  • Extensive2D 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

 Some of the design projects for ViaCAD Pro:

  • Product and Packaging design
  • DIY manufacturing –create precision models and export to CNC machines.
  • Furniture and cabinet design
  • Use more sophisticated editing to compliment rendering and animation packages.
  • Prototyping with 3D printers
  • 2D drafting, diagraming and schematic drawings
  •  Marketing images for designs with photorealistic rendering

Just some of the types of drawings you can tackle with ViaCAD

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.
  • Customizable 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
