The beginning of NURBS era in LightWave 3D

LWCAD 5.2 is a top set of add-on modeling plugins for LightWave 3D. The core of this package contains a complete set of standard CAD tools with the most advanced osnap engine. It equips your favorite modeling program with the countless features normally available only in expensive CAD applications.
LWCAD 5.2 contains revolutionary features such as a real-time curve booleans or real-time polygons drilling which are absolutely unique in the industry, as well as a new set of archiviz tools which are specially designed for creating architecture. It allows users to create a complex building in a few minutes. These new features will push you into another modeling dimension.


NURBS curve 2
  • New standardized NURBS curve 2 with variable knot vector
  • Backward compatible with previous curve version
  • Improved precision of operations like division, interpolation, approximation...
  • Closed curve segments supported
Smart Mesh
  • New unified geometry system based on polygons and NURBS surfaces.
  • Shared edges between polygons and NURBS surfaces are defined by new curves.
  • Flat NURBS surface: flat NURBS polygon based on new NURBS curves, compatible with polygons.
  • NURBS surface: standard NURBS surface with 2,3, or 4 edges, open-closed along U or V direction.
Smart Selection
  • New in-built selection system
  • Fully integrated into smart edit tools
Smart Edit
  • Minimalistic set of editing tools
  • Complete set of editing operations compressed into few tools
  • Works with smart mesh and NURBS curves
Multilingual support
All menu items, panels and messages are translated into: German, French,Italian and Japan languages
Automatic installer
Professional installation, LWCAD 5.2 is set up automatically for specified LightWave
