Workspaces switching & interface appearance

2D Drafting and classic interface can be switched in a wink. 2D drafting interface is supported by a ribbon with its tabs and panels. It displays the most used commands as thumbnails for easy selection. Classic interface is supported by toolbars and it's the most preferred by old users. Interface appearance makes your drawing environment more comfortable because it supports options for applying different themes as well as show or hide the menu bar, toolbars, file tabs and status bar.

Batch Purge

No need to open files. It can purge the excess objects such as blocks, layers, line type, dimension style or text style on several DWG files at the same time.

Batch Print

Batch print drawings with the same drawing frame attribute and to save engineer's time to improve efficiency.

Drawing Lock

Turn the drawing into a whole block. Others can't modify the objects of the original drawing. It is a good way to prevent others from modifying the drawing.

Dynamic Block and Dynamic Block Editor

Dynamic Block function can save your time and make you specify drawings easily. You don't need to repeatedly draw a series of standard components. This function can reduce your cumbersome block libraries in the process. What's more, you can create and modify dynamic blocks properties in the Dynamic Block Editor.

Magnifier

This tool helps to view a specific area of your drawing as a magnifier with the capability of snap points without performing zoom in/out on big drawings like map or survey and also is practical to use and customize. Save time on exploring small details of your drawing or even drafting in a jungle of intersected objects easy and quickly.

Pline Boolean

Directly conduct SUBTRACT/UNION/INTERSECT calculation without converting polylines to regions. This command is 3 or 4 times quicker than TRIM.

Batch Print

Dimension Tools provide accurate values for the objects, including Quick Dimension, Linear Dimension, Angular Dimension, Baseline Dimension, etc.


Drawing Lock

Annotation Scale automatically adjusts the size of objects, such as text, dimension, block, etc. You can quickly and easily handle drawings of different scales.



Revision Cloud

Revision Cloud consists of a continuous polyline.

You can use it to call attention to parts of a drawing during the review stage.

Batch Print

Multileader is an annotative function and is used to attach the annotation to multiple leader lines. Multileader give information or special instruction.

Drawing Lock

This function is not only able to query length and

area but also radius, angle, volume, total area, and total length. Meet the needs of different users.

Express tools

Express tools contain a library of productivity tools designed to help you extend the power of your design. They are easy to use, easily integrated into your menus and toolbars, and cover a wide range of functions, including dimensioning, drawing, selecting and modifying objects.


3D orbit options

3D orbit options like Free Orbit, 3D Continuous Orbit, Orbit along the X-axis, Orbit along the Y-axis, Orbit along Z-orbit and 3D Orbit Center allows rotate the view in 3D space or even you can apply a shortcut (SHIFT+SCROLL MOUSE).

Visual Styles

Visual styles control the display of edges and shading a viewport. You can control the effect of a visual style by switching each other. When you apply any visual style, the associated viewport is automatically updated to reflect those changes.

3D Face and mesh modeling

3D face allows creating a three or four-sided surface anywhere in 3D space. Mesh Modeling creates a free-form polygon mesh. You can reshape mesh objects by smoothing, creasing, refining, and splitting faces. You can also drag edges, faces, and vertices to mold the overall form.

Solid and solid editing

3D solid objects often start as one of several basic shapes, or primitives, that you can then edit and recombine. Some samples of solid editing capability enable you to join two solids, subtract one from the other, or create a shape based on the intersection of their volumes.

Profiles and Sections

2D profile and sections can be generated from a 3D model through SOLPROF, SOLDRAW and SOLVIEW command. Solprof creates 2D projection profile of 3D model consisting of visible and hidden lines. Solview creates orthographic views, layers, and layout viewports automatically. Soldraw generates profiles and sections in layout viewports created with SOLVIEW.


Render and Materials

Render gives a photorealistic shaded image of a 3D solid or surface model, improving visualization. You can apply materials to your 3D model to define the shininess, bumpiness, and transparency of object's surfaces to give them a realistic appearance.
