Overview

DesignCAD is an easy-to-learn and use 2D CAD program. Access hundreds of 2D drafting and design tools through an intuitive interface to quickly and easily produce accurately scaled, precision designs.  It's perfect for architectural drawings, engineering layouts, and more.

Get Started in CAD with DesignCAD

DesignCAD is a versatile and easy-to-use 2D CAD program. Access hundreds of 2D drafting and design tools through an intuitive interface to quickly and easily produce accurately scaled, precision designs! It’s perfect for:

  • Architectural Drawings – Draw professional-quality floorplans, elevations, and plot plans with ease.
  • Engineering Layouts – Double-precision accuracy allows the highest degree of tolerance and design control.
  • Shop Drawings – Entering specific values for dimensions, diameter and radius allows you to draw accurate mechanical parts.
  • Home Projects – Create do-it-yourself landscaping designs and indoor/outdoor home improvements.
  • Other CAD Needs – Create electronic schematics, plats, mapping, flow charts and more.


Easy to Use

  • DesignCAD offers simple operations, intuitive drawing tools, editing commands, and extensive online help to make it easy for you to quickly get started using CAD.

Fast, Powerful Commands


Drawing shortcuts, horizontal and vertical cursor mode, and cursor step size enable you to make faster and more accurate drawings. Shortcut keys and dynamic toolbars can make commonly used commands a snap! 


Full Featured 2D Drafting

You can draw virtually anything with DesignCAD’s sophisticated 2D drawing and editing features, advanced geometric construction capability, complete layer management, extensive text manipulation functions, dimensioning and annotation features. 

AutoCAD® 2018 .DWG/.DXF Compatibility & More

DesignCAD is able to import/export AutoCAD® files from R12 to 2018 with support for AutoCAD® layouts, PaperSpace, layers, line styles, views, and blocks in both DXF and DWG file formats.

WHAT'S NEW!



2D PDF Import

A new filter that has been implemented in DesignCAD is 2D PDF import. PDF export was already implemented in DesignCAD. The functionality of this filter will be to import 2D geometry from the PDF files.

Support for AutoCAD 2019

Support has been provided in DesignCAD to import or export the AutoCAD 2019 file format’s (.dwg and .dxf). The users can import or export the above-mentioned formats in the latest versions. Note: The support for AutoCAD file formats was already present in DesignCAD. However, the code and relevant libraries needed to be updated to provide the support for AutoCAD 2019 Below is an image which shows a file that has been imported in DesignCAD 2019. The file format is .dwg and was designed in AutoCAD 2019 which is the latest till date.

Features

KEY FEATURES


Easy to Use 2D Drafting & Design

Intuitive yet sophisticated editing tools, advanced geometric construction capabilities, drawing short cut keys and complete layer management make 2D drafting a breeze. 


Windows 64-bit & 32-bit Compatible


DesignCAD can be installed as either a 32-bit or 64-bit application.  Install the 64-bit compatbile version that utilises expanded computer memory to load, process and render files or choose the traditional 32-bit version.


Smart Menus

DesignCAD offers smart menus that are initially presented with a shortened list of available menu commands to help reduce screen clutter. The menus can be expanded to show all items by clicking on the double arrows at the bottom of the menu. Great for learning, this option can be enabled or disabled depending on the user's preference.

Layers

DesignCAD utilises layers that can be independently switched on and off in order for users to have a better visibility of the drawing. For example, if you just need to see the outline of a component, switch off other layers containing center lines, dimensions, etc.

DesignCAD can also lock layers, so that they are visible but not editable, in order to prevent accidental changes to the locked layer. Some features of objects, such as colour or linestyle, can also be controlled on a per-layer basis.

Associative Dimensions

Associative dimensions will automatically update as you change the size of the object they are associated with. For example, if a radial dimension is associated with a circle, when you change the radius of the circle using the Info Box, the associated radial dimension is automatically updated to match the new radius.


Added Flexibility when Sharing Your Work

  • Print Section - Print only a specified region of the drawing.
  • Print Scale Options - Select from a standard set of print scale options or create your own.
  • Info Box - Roll out or more permanently open the info box to display the details of any selected object to help you speed through the design options, even if you’re still learning/span.
  • User Notes – Add notes to any drawing/span.
  • Save for Sharing - When you save a drawing, all files referenced externally (textures, symbols, images) are saved to a subfolder with the host drawing’s name.
  • Paper Space Mode – Create a view frame and choose a specific scale or enter a custom view frame scale.

AutoCAD® DWG/DXF Compatible

Work with the latest AutoCAD® files. Import/Export AutoCAD® files from R12 through 2019 and enjoy excellent compatibility with AutoCAD® layouts and PaperSpace, plus support for AutoCAD® layers, linestyles, views, and blocks in both DXF and DWG file formats. DesignCAD even offers limited support for Architectural Desktop (ADT) objects, which are recognised and exploded to DesignCAD equivalents.

DesignCAD can import, or open, leading CAD file formats including DWG, DXF, vector WMF, HPGL, and XYZ. DesignCAD can export or save to DWG, DXF, vector WMF, HPGL, PDF and SKP.

DesignCAD also supports several image formats including .BMP, .TIF, .JPG, .TGA, .PCX, .PNG, and .GIF
