ZWCAD 2021 Beta Is Open to Tryout

GUANGZHOU, China — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 20, 2020 — ZWSOFT today launched ZWCAD 2021 Beta, which brings faster display, finer visuals, and better user experience.

Better Visuals Generated More Quickly

Aided by multi-core CPUs and GPUs as well as parallel processing, data visualization has been accelerated. In ZWCAD 2021 Beta, the reading of drawings becomes approximately 30% faster (compared with ZWCAD 2020) with a smoother display of objects, even at 4K resolutions.

Adjustable Transparency for Clearer Drawings

Users can now specify the transparency of objects, hatches, references, layers, etc. to distinguish them, which is especially useful for showing the objects hidden under an overlapping area. For higher efficiency, the transparency of objects in a layer can be set all at once.

Manage All Xrefs in One Manager

External files in the formats of DWG, DWF, PDF, PNG, etc. are frequently used as references in CAD. In this version, all the Xref managers are merged into one so that users can conveniently check and manage them without switching between panels.

A Unique Layer for Each Viewport

Viewport layers allow users to vary the layer properties (layer color, line type, line weight, plot style, etc.) in each viewport without affecting those of the drawing. Hence, users can easily mark or highlight some specific parts to suit their needs.

Formulas Enable Faster Calculations

Now that table and field formulas are available, users can utilize formulas, such as Sum, Average, and Count in ZWCAD 2021 Beta like they do in Excel®. As a result, creating bills of materials or calculating fields in a table becomes effortless.

New features also include the upgrade of Visual Studio® to 2017 version and APIs for Tool Palettes and Ribbon. For more information, please click here or subscribe to ZWCAD.
