DesignCAD is a comprehensive computer-aided design package that incorporates a full range of 2D and 3D drawing functions.
You can use DesignCAD to create drawings for any assignment, from simple to complex, and the finished drawing can be printed using any printer or plotter that the various 32-bit versions of Windows support.
DesignCAD can be customized to fit your particular application. You can create your own Custom Toolbox and even write your own DesignCAD commands using BasicCAD!
With its numerous high-end features, DesignCAD compares favorably with CAD systems costing thousands of dollars. Unlike other high end systems though, DesignCAD is easy to learn and use. With a little practice, virtually anyone can make detailed drawings of professional quality using DesignCAD.
Only DesignCAD 3D Max gives you the additional ability to construct realistic 3D models of your projects. You can show them in wireframe view, with hidden lines removed, or with full-color shading-from any viewing angle. You can also create animation files which step the viewer around your drawing in smooth increments. For example, you could start with an aerial view of a house, descend to ground level, and then walk all around it. You can even assign material properties to your creations, placing a brass doorknob on an oak door, or creating a lavatory of rose marble with chrome fittings.
DesignCAD 21 can load drawings from almost any earlier version of DesignCAD, and can save to versions as far back as DesignCAD 97. You may also interchange drawings between the 2D and 3D versions of DesignCAD. You can, for example, take a cross-section of a complex beam which was created in DesignCAD, load the cross section into DesignCAD 3D MAX, and extrude it into a beam. Then you can save the extruded beam as a DesignCAD 3D MAX drawing, even with hidden lines removed! If you want to go a step further, you can extrude your floor plan into an elevation, add a roof, and save a perspective view back into DesignCAD 2D format.
DesignCAD imports and exports drawings in DWG, DXF, and HPGL formats, and also reads and writes Windows Metafiles. DesignCAD can also export WPG, RIB and WRL formats. Other imported formats include HPGL and XYZ. DesignCAD can pass drawing information to and from the Clipboard and export OLE 2.0 objects to applications that support them.
