Product Information

Punch! ViaCAD 2D/3D v6 - technology that thinks, as you draw.  Provides exceptional value suitable for beginners or experts. Innovative 2D to 3D user interface toggle combined with LogiCursor and a gigabyte of training material creates perfect environment for 2D users migrating to 3D.

  • LogiCursor Thinks As You Draw - Simple interface with LogiCursor technology aids in visually anticipating your moves, partnering with you in the design process. 
  • 2D/3D Seamless Interface - Toggle between 2D and 3D with one mouse click. Start in 2D, add 3D with surface modeling tools. Then click back to 2D, making precision editing a snap.

New Features

  • 3D Modeling Update - The underlying modeling kernel was updated providing improvements to blending, chamfering, shelling, Booleans, and direct face editing.

  • Architectural Tools - The 2D architectural tools provides fast drafting tools for creating walls, windows, and doors. Features associated with these tools include:

    • Automatic healing with neighboring walls

    • Auto-dimensions

    • Attach doors, windows, and custom symbols

    • Support for custom wall styles (user patterns & colors for multiple material regions)

  • Architectural Tools - The 2D architectural tools provides fast drafting tools for creating walls, windows, and doors. Features associated with these tools include:

    • 200X Faster Hidden Line (Mac & PC)

    • 6X Faster Dynamic Repaints (Mac & PC)

    • 2X Faster Static Repaints

    • Level of Detail for even faster performance

  • 3Dconnexion Support - The SpaceNavigator device drivers are now recognized by ViaCAD. This includes support for Mac OSX (Universal Binary), Windows XP, and Vista. Use the SpaceNavigator to dynamically zoom, rotate, and pan views into your data models.
  • Multiple Viewports - Viewports provide a graphical user interface to display the same drawing in multiple views. Each view may have a different orientation, which provides the ability to see an object simultaneously in an isometric, side, front, and top views.
  • Gradient & Image Backgrounds - The preference dialog box now provides features to specify two and four color gradients. You can also specify a JPEG or BMP file as a background.
  • Color Per Face - Users can now apply colors per face. Use the deep select tool to select a face and then pick a color from the pen menu.
  • New Using Wizard - The New Using Wizard dialog box provides the ability to create a new drawing file from a collection of custom settings or selection of a existing file from a template. Quickly set up a drawing for mechanical or architectural layouts.
  • Single Click Fill & Hatch - Click in a region of trimmed or untrimmed curves to hatch or fill. Resultant hatch is auto trimmed and remains associative to the neighboring untrimmed curves.
