ViaCAD™ 2D is a simple, powerful and professional 2D drafting and design tool for everyone. Unlike other 2D drawing software, ViaCAD™ is packed with unique tools to help you create precision drawings and sketches easily. With over 275 drawing tools, ViaCAD is the perfect choice for producing anything from simple sketches to fully dimensioned, standards compliant, production ready drawings. The Mac version is built on a 64-bit platform* to manage large designs even better.
Just some of the drawings that you can create with ViaCAD:
Drawing precisely is easy with ViaCAD. The LogiCursor™ guides your cursor to potential point selections in the drawing; anticipating your next action. Editing is just as easy with the Gripper; adding drag and drop capabilities to simple and more complex edits. Customizable grids add another level of ease to drawing and editing. The grids provide precision drag and drop in rectangular, polar (circular), and Isometric layouts.
Includes over 250 drawing and editing tools!
Create precision drawings with tools that you would expect and some that will surprise you. Each drawing tool has multiple options for creating objects in your designs. Powerful tools such as rectangular and polar (circular) arrays help you create more precise and complicated patterns. A complete toolkit of trimming options is available to help you make modifications. The included ‘Region Trim' will do in one click, what most programs take dozens of steps to achieve.
Precision Drafting and Annotations
ViaCAD 2D is a robust design documentation tool with over 20 customizable dimension styles including industry dimension formats. Import a 3D model and the Auto 3D to 2D feature will create multiple 2D views to document 3D models created in other software.
Create scaled building drawings and room layouts with ViaCAD. Custom walls are drawn using thickness for different components allowing you to present the real-world wall sizes and what materials make up the walls.
Compatibility and Sharing
ViaCAD provides compatibility with AutoCAD™ and includes a variety of other formats as well.
