ZWSOFT Releases ZWCAD 2011

By DE Editors

ZWCAD Software Co., Ltd., has released ZWCAD 2011 with ZWSOFT Solution World 2010.

ZWCAD 2011 offers two types of parametric constraints, geometric and dimensional, that allow associative design and editing of objects.

MLeader, Table, and Field drawing tools work together. MLeader can be used to mark part numbers in drawings, then Table lists all of them. Field can be added to display drawing information so they will update automatically to show the latest information about the drawing. The new Solprof feature enables users to create profiles of 3D solids. Newly integrated into ZWCAD 2011 is PDF Plotter, which plots drawings to PDF files containing layer information from the drawing.

Also new in ZWCAD 2011, Snap has gained the Magnet enhancement to increase the efficiency for click and snap designing. Smart Selection Highlighting is now supported to highlight the object at that users are pointing to. Dimension Break provides a visual enhancement to drawing views by removing sections of dimension lines where they intersect object lines. Refedit has been reconstructed to enhance both speed and accuracy of in-place reference editing, according to the company. The speed of inserting raster images has also been improved.

Many new classes have been added to the ZRX interface, such as MFCs (Microsoft foundation classes), the load-on-demand functions, double-click protocol functions, and ZRX entrance messages. With regard to LISP, a batch of new visual LISP functions, such as VLR-, VLAX- and VL-functions have been added.

ZWSOFT has started ZWSOFT Solution World 2010 with 170 partners worldwide to display special offers. Users can reserve special offers occurring in their regions. The website gets updated as soon as new promotions are released, according to the company.
