ZWCAD+ Inside-out: What Ease-of-Use Means for CAD Software

GUANGZHOU, China — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 5, 2014 — It has been half a month since the release of ZWCAD+ 2015 Beta, which marks the third version since the debut of ZWCAD+ and brings the product quality of ZWCAD+ to a new level. Within this short period of time, this CAD product has been well received by the partners and clients. The ZWCAD Design Team is here to share the product concept with users.

“After many years of development, CAD software has become a behemoth. Much more complicated than we thought — annotation tools, layer management, 3D functions, programming, and many more,” said Daniel Huang, Product Manager of ZWCAD+. “The functions may become more and more powerful, but ease-of-use hasn’t been improved a lot. Ease-of-use is an important aspect that is not adequately considered by many CAD developers. For ZWCAD+, we are trying something different.”

Simplify design steps to improve efficiency and keep it fun

“The whole series of Smart Functions are focused on maintaining an EASY product, which include SmartMouse and SmartSelect,” said Daniel.

SmartSelect enables designers to find similar entities with convenient property selection. When designers need to find a certain type of entity like Block Reference without considering complicated property, say, the exact position, they no longer have to use FIND command.

SmartMouse, the mouse gesture feature in ZWCAD+, enables designers to execute certain commands, by simply moving the mouse on a certain track to trigger frequently-used commands. They can also easily customize commands for different mouse actions. It greatly helps speed up the design process.

Make the function easy to master within just a few minutes

“In ZWCAD+ 2015, we continue to make the function as easy as possible. Ease-of-use not only requires the function to effectively simplify the design steps, but requires it to be easy to learn. The examples are the new features, Reference Manager and Super Hatch,” said Daniel.

Reference Manager helps manage all external resources referred. When a user first enters the function dialogue, the neat and tight alignment of buttons and layout will allow him to intuitively understand how to use it.

For Super Hatch, it provides versatile hatching patterns including Block, Xref, and Image. At the first sight of the dialog box, users can easily spot the hatching pattern tabs that indicate the overall capability of Super Hatch. Meanwhile, when navigating around the box, users can also easily set up parameters of the hatching patterns.
