A comprehensive collection of 2D drafting tools

Product Information

Shark CAD 5 LT provides a comprehensive, yet intuitive collection of 2D drafting tools for architects, engineers, drafters, and other design-related personnel needing to create professional drawings.  Choose from over 26 dimension types and a variety of industry standards to annotate drawing data. Shark LT includes support for ASME Y14.5 geometric dimensioning and tolerances (GD&T) as well as adhering to ISO standards.  Mechanical as well as architectural designers will appreciate the breadth of formatting options for annotating drawings.  Accelerate your drawing generation with Shark LT’s model to sheet functionality.  Create precision 2D drawings from 3D parts based upon technology licensed from Dassault’s CATIA including auxiliary, detail, and section views.  Review and redline drawings using Shark LT’s markup tools. Add labels, comments, and revision clouds while tracking changes using markup tables.

Precision Digital Models - Use Shark LT as your foundation to create precise 3D digital prototypes suitable for concept-to-manufacturing solutions. Based on Dassault’s ACIS modeling kernel, Shark LT maintains precision NURB/analytic forms needed in demanding tasks such as manufacturing or engineering analysis.  Shark LT supports an integrated collection of 2D, 3D, surface, and solid modeling tools.  You choose the tools or combination of tools you need for the task at hand.  Notable tools include numerous spline creation and modification commands, seventeen surface construction methods, blending, chamfering, shelling, stretching, twisting, bending, and foreign part editing tools. All surface and solid modeling operations transparently support associativity and a history tree for rapid design modifications.

Ease of Use - While many packages claim ease of use, few actually deliver. Shark LT not only delivers unprecedented usability, but provides an uncompromised, extensive set of 2D/3D design tools. Shark LT has been designed, from the ground up, to be intuitive for the casual user as well as the professional designer. Keys to the innovative user interface include smart prompting and tips, intelligent snapping through LogiCursor, and over 80 minutes of training videos.

Share Data with Other Solutions - With support for 25+ file formats, Shark LT allows you to share data with numerous design, analysis, rendering, documentation, and manufacturing solutions. Notable among these formats include SAT, IGES, STEP, STL, OBJ, VRML, and DXF/DWG.
