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

  • 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.

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 2020 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.

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 2020.

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

PDF Underlay:

PDF compatibility has been expanded to now include PDF Underlay. Previously, only 2D file export was supported along with the import of 2D Geometry. Please see the example 2D PDF Underlay imported successfully into DesignCAD 2020.
 

2D Adobe Illustrator® with option to import as underlay:

Adobe illustrator import filter has been added in DesignCAD. User can import the Adobe illustrator file as an underlay or simply its geometry. To the Right is an example of Adobe illustrator file imported in DesignCAD.
 

Support for SketchUp 2020:

DesignCAD now supports SketchUp 2020. Below image shows the SketchUp 2020 file imported in DesignCAD.

Support for AutoCAD® 2020:

Support has been provided in DesignCAD to import or export the AutoCAD 2020 file format’s (.dwg and .dxf). The users can import or export the above-mentioned formats in the latest versions. Note: The support for AutoCAD file formats was already present in DesignCAD. However, the code and relevant libraries needed to be updated to provide the support for AutoCAD 2020 Below is an image which shows a file that has been imported in DesignCAD 2020. The file format is .dwg and was designed in AutoCAD 2020 which is the latest till date.

Best Fit line and Best Fit Circle:

The new Best Fit Circle and Line tools allow the user to draw a circle which is best-fitted through 3 or more defined points, or a line through 2 or more points. Points can be extracted from a specified location or a specific object.

Line Distance tool:

The minimum distance between two non-parallel lines can now be calculated through the line distance tool. Previously, only the distance between two parallel lines was able to be calculated.

3D Print Check Tool:

The Print Check tool has been expanded to repair anomalies found in models to be used in 3D printing. The repair functionality corrects common 3D mesh issues such as: non- manifold edges duplicated and collapsed facets, open edges, shells, Normal orientation and more.
