Powerful & Complete

2D/3D Symbols

DesignCAD 3D Max comes with more than 10,000 2D/3D symbols to quickly drag and drop into your design.

3D Model Content for Easier Architectural Design

Access 600 editable 3D models to quickly drag and drop into your architectural designs. Each colorful, fully texture-mapped symbol can be modified to your exact specification.

  • 129 structural models – doors and hardware, windows and window treatments, fireplaces, wood moldings and more
  • 234 kitchen items – cabinets, appliances, faucets, sinks, counters and more
  • 52 bath items – tubs, faucets, sinks, vanities and more
  • 134 residential items – furniture, lighting fixtures and home décor
  • 51 office items – desks, file & storage cabinets, tables, shelving and more

Layers

DesignCAD utilizes layers that can be independently switched on and off in order for users to have a better visibility of the drawing. For example, if you just need to see the outline of a component, switch off other layers containing center lines, dimensions, etc.

DesignCAD can also lock layers, so that they are visible but not editable, in order to prevent accidental changes to the locked layer. Some features of objects, such as color or linestyle, can also be controlled on a per-layer basis.

Group Editor in Info Box

View the internal structure of a group and any subgroups, and simply reorganize contents without having to explode it. Group editing options include:

  • Move highlighted group members or entire subgroups to a different layer.
  • Remove individual objects or an entire subgroup from the topmost group (Extract).
  • Move objects between sub-groups of the topmost group (Move To).
  • Collapse an entire group hierarchy to a single-level group (Unnested).

Optimized

Windows 64-bit & 32-bit Compatible

DesignCAD can be installed as either a 32-bit or 64-bit application. The 32-bit version has always been limited to using 2 GB of RAM, even when running on 64-bit versions of Windows with 4GB or more of RAM. The 64-bit version can access the larger amounts of RAM that are usually available on 64-bit systems, enabling you to create, edit, and render much larger drawings than you can with the 32-bit version.

Accelerated Drawing Performance

For greater speed, DesignCAD 3D MAX offers an enhanced RedSDK mode which leverages the power of modern graphics cards to zoom, pan, and rotate your designs up to 30 times faster than using the OpenGL mode! RedSDK is available in wireframe mode as well as with shaded and hidden-line 3D views.

Drawing Compare

Select two DesignCAD drawings or .BMP images, and Drawing Compare will perform a visual comparison of the two. It’s an invaluable aid when working collaboratively on a project, or when picking up an older project and looking to see the status of updates. Use it to compare a design and an As Built drawing to see where changes have been implemented.

Added Flexibility when Sharing Your Work

  • Print Section - Print only a specified region of the drawing.
  • Print Scale Options - Select from a standard set of print scale options or create your own.
  • Enhanced Print to PDF - Print multiple panels to PDF format to create a multipage PDF file.
  • User Notes – Add notes to any drawing
  • Save for Sharing - When you save a drawing, all files referenced externally (textures, symbols, images) are saved to a subfolder with the host drawing’s name.
  • Paper Space Mode – Create a view frame and choose a specific scale or enter a custom view frame scale.

Interoperable & Extendable

AutoCAD® DWG/DXF Compatible and more

Work with the latest AutoCAD® files. Import/Export AutoCAD® files from R12 through 2016 and enjoy excellent compatibility with AutoCAD® layouts and PaperSpace, plus support for AutoCAD® layers, linestyles, views, and blocks in both DXF and DWG file formats. DesignCAD even offers limited support for architectural objects, which are recognized and exploded to DesignCAD equivalents.

New Import/Export SketchUp Files

DesignCAD 3D MAX is now able to both import and export drawings to/from the .SKP format for use with SketchUp versions 3.0 to 2015.

STL Support for 3D Printing - Import and export 3D models in STL format, one of the most commonly used file formats for 3D printing.

Import/Export OBJ Files - OBJ files are a common means of exchanging 3D models, and can be used by many other CAD and solid- or surface-modeling programs. Note that DesignCAD's OBJ capabilities are limited to geometry only; materials and texture mapping are not supported.

Triangulate Surface Command

Reduce all faces of a Solid Surface object to triangles, helpful when converting the drawing to a different drawing format like OBJ, DWG, DXF, STL, SKP

More Vector Formats Supported – In addition to those listed above, DesignCAD can also import WMF, HPGL, and XYZ and export or save to WMF, HPGL, RIB, VRML, WPG and PDF.

GIF Image Support and More – DesignCAD also supports several image formats including .BMP, .TIF, .JPG, .TGA, .PCX, .PNG, and .GIF

Extendable

Use the built-in BasicCAD scripting language, or OLE Automation, or both, to add new tools and enhancements to DesignCAD.

New Features

New SketchUp Import

Now users can both import and export drawings to/from the .SKP format for use with SketchUp version 3.0 to 2015.

New Insert Manager

Quickly review and manage all blocks, symbols, and image files referenced or embedded in a drawing.

  • Improved Blocks Management – Get a visual list of all blocks present in a drawing. Access and edit block information more quickly and easily than ever before. Sort blocks by Name, ID, or Reference Counts and easily copy this information to the clipboard. Right-click the Reference Counts lines to see context menus of the categories—Direct, Indirect, and In Definition. Three editing operations—Open in Block Editor, Delete, and Insert—allow you to quickly make almost any change (with some limitations) without the distraction of other drawing entities.
  • Improved Image Management – Similar to the Blocks tab, the new Image tab of the Insert Manager makes it easy to access and edit the raster images in a design. Additional sort options include sort by Path, Index, and Embedded fields.
  • Improved Symbols Management - The Symbols tab of the Insert Manager has the same features as the Images tab, and also has the Open in Block Editor button, just like the Blocks tab.

New Custom Properties

DesignCAD now supports the addition of custom properties to drawings and to drawing entities. Custom Properties are bits of text that are identified by a combination of a Key and a Name field. This is a means of adding "invisible" text information to a drawing or an object. These custom properties can be viewed and edited manually by means of a Custom Properties dialog, or processed by code via BasicCAD macros or OLE Automation programs.

New Flicker-Free GDI Draw

A new option for Flicker-Free GDI Draw uses special optimizations to speed up the draw of wide lines in GDI wireframe views. The difference is particularly notable under Windows 7 if you have transparency enabled.

Improved AutoCAD DWG/DXF File Interoperability

Continued improvements and bug fixes have been added and/or corrected for smooth file sharing with .DWG and .DXF file formats.

System Requirements

DesignCAD 3D Max is delivered in a 64-bit version to take full advantage of your hardware’s available computer memory to load, process, and render CAD files. A 32-bit version is also available if required by your hardware.
