ZWCAD 2020 SP2
A powerful system for 2D design and creation of drawings with full support for the DWG format, a familiar interface and unique functions that give significant convenience in work: smart selection of objects according to specified criteria, comparison of drawings, mouse gestures, voice tags, smart printing and many others. As a result of continuous improvement over 20 years, ZWCAD 2020 is a reliable and efficient CAD solution, taking the design process to the highest level.
Choosing an interface color scheme
The ZWCAD user interface allows you to switch between a dark circuit that reduces visual fatigue from prolonged use and a traditional but optimized light circuit. For the rest, these are all the same familiar classic and tape interfaces, familiar CAD commands and aliases, so you can immediately use ZWCAD 2020 without any re-training costs. The interface has rich customization options that include almost all elements: workspaces, quick access toolbar, ribbon, toolbars, menus, quick access menus, keyboard shortcuts, etc.
100% DWG format support
Numerous tests confirm the excellent compatibility of ZWCAD 2020 with other popular CAD systems at the level of current DWG formats, including DWG2018. DWG AutoCAD R14-AutoCAD 2018 versions are supported, opening and saving DXF files of AutoCAD R12-AutoCAD 2018 versions, inserting bitmap images, other OLE objects, JPEG, PNG and BMP formats, importing DGN format files.
Dynamic blocks ZWCAD 2020
The ability to use previously created dynamic blocks and switch their states through special handles on the block or through the object’s properties palette.
Dynamic blocks allow you to accelerate the work of the designer by 30-40 percent. They make it possible to combine many elements of the drawing and set their change and the influence of some elements on others in various variations. Convenient switching using special handles of dynamic blocks or through the object properties palette, implemented in ZWCAD 2020, allows you to quickly change the state of a block to a predetermined one.
Import PDF and PDF substrates
PDF files can now be used as a backing, using the paste command Paste to insert. For such an object, you can adjust the contrast, shading and color, bind to the geometry of its objects, display or hide its frames, control the visibility of its layers. By uploading such files, you can continue to work with previously created projects exported to PDF, instead of starting new ones. In addition, you can also use DWFx files as a background.
The new PDF IMPORT function allows you to insert objects from a PDF file into a drawing in the form of primitives, hatching, bitmap images, and TrueType text. Similarly, you can convert PDF substrates already inserted into the drawing.
Typically, if the size of a drawing is reduced or increased, painstaking work must be done to reconfigure the display of annotative objects so that they are readable in the drawing. In ZWCAD 2020, you can get rid of this problem once and for all by simply using the annotation settings. By turning annotations (such as text, size, hatching, multi-leader, etc.) into annotative objects, their sizes can be automatically adjusted to fit the scaling conditions, and thus they will always be displayed in the right size.
Handle pop-up menu
Thanks to this new feature, editing of certain types of objects becomes more visual and convenient. For example, the menu that appears when you hover over the middle handle of a polyline segment allows you to quickly stretch the segment, add another vertex or convert the segment to an arc, and when you hover over the hatch handle, move the starting point and set the angle and scale of the hatch.
When printing many drawings created in the model space, the user must constantly repeat the same steps to configure the output parameters. In the ZWCAD 2020 dialog box invoked by the ZWPLOT command, you can set several criteria for defining borders and other print settings, so that you can automatically print the drawings one after another. The printing process is becoming more efficient.
• Smart Voice – add voice notes to drawings
• Smart Mouse – enter commands using mouse gestures
• Smart Select – select objects according to general parameters
• Barcode processing – insert text information into the drawing automatically
Thanks to dynamically updated coordinate values in the area of the mouse cursor and input fields of their fixed values, the user can completely concentrate on the design process without moving his eyes or cursor to another place in the workspace. Dynamic input works to enter coordinates during the construction of most primitives, including segments, polyny, arcs, sizes, and also when choosing their properties.
Layer Properties Palette
Previously, you could only work in the open window of the Layer Properties Manager, so in order to visualize the state of all layers in the drawing, you had to open and close this window several times a day.
In ZWCAD 2020, thanks to the transformation of the dialog box into a palette, you can work with the drawing in the workspace, without delay watching changes in the properties of the layers.
Z axis tracking
In ZWCAD 2020, for three-dimensional design, it is convenient to track the height along the Z axis, so you can easily draw lines parallel to the Z axis, without the need for any other construction lines.
