ZWCAD 2018 Standard version provides innovative, collaborative and customizable features for engineers in the AEC and MCAD industries, easing their design process. ZWCAD 2018 is a proven CAD solution with over 320,000 satisfied users across 80 countries.

New in this version

  • New UI - The new UI has lower brightness, higher contrast, your eyes will feel more comfortable even if you stare on the interface for a long time. At the same time, it is neater and flatter, which is the trending style of software interface. The skin color is close to the background color of the model space, which makes it more professional.
  • Quick Calculator - Perform calculation within CAD just as you would with a desktop calculator.
  • Solprof - Project 3D solids onto a 2D plane parallel, create 2D profile images.
  • Mvsetup - Use Mvsetup to set up a drawing for plotting directly from model space. Or on a named layout, you can insert a title block into the drawing, and create a set of layout viewports in the title block area. You can specify a global scale as the ratio between the scale of the title block in the layout and what you have created in model space.
  • Oops - Restores objects erased by the latest ERASE command.
  • Image Quality - The ImageQuality command helps you control the display quality of images. The quality setting affects display effects; high-quality images take longer to display. Changing the setting updates the display immediately without regenerating the drawing.
  • Flip the arrow of the dimension - The expected command AIDIMFLIPARROW is now supported in ZWCAD 2018. Click a dimension node to flip the arrowheads in or out.
  • Customize CUI - Customize the classic interface. Partial CUI is supported.
  • Lisp Compiler - Lisp Compiler is used to compile .lsp file to .zelx formats, which can be loaded on ZWCAD 2018. It helps users to run Lisp programs more efficiently and developers to protect source codes in security.
