ZWCAD+ Inside-out: Why Less Is More Matters for CAD Software

GUANGZHOU, China — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 1, 2014 — The concept that “less is more” is hitting hot recently in the software design field. Gone are the days when complex programs were desirable. What does this mean in the field of CAD? Most users only use 80% of the functions available in their CAD program; the rest takes up space and affects response time. The ZWCAD Design Team has been constantly striving to bring forth a CAD program that maximizes usability and minimizes cost to achieve the same if not better results. ZWCAD Design is committed to breathing life into the phrase, “less is more.”

“A lightweight CAD software means a number of things. It means a compact program with practical functions, interface, as well as minimal dependency requirements that allow for equal performance on common hardware. Unlike other programs, ZWCAD+ is hard-focused on practical usability,” said Daniel Huang, Product Manager of ZWCAD+.

Compact and practical functions & interface

Starting around the mid 1970s, computer aided design systems began to provide more capability than just reproducing manual drafts electronically. It has long been expected to be a do-all and end-all of drafter’s design work, ranging from conceptual designs to the layout of a final product. However, with the increase of complex features such as 3D functions, tolerance for longer wait times, low operation speed, and crashes have become quite common.

The ZWCAD Team has made a difference here. Striking a balance between necessity and relevancy in 2D basics and 3D functions, ZWCAD+ focuses on just-enough functionality based on feedback from tens of thousands of users. The whole interface is intuitive and easy to navigate. It avoids unnecessary clutter so you won’t be bothered by the superfluous buttons. Meanwhile, it also aids in lessening visual fatigue caused by prolonged computer use, allowing you to design for longer.

Minimal dependency requirements

“Unlike other software, CAD software often has a high requirement to computer configuration which makes CAD design a 'luxury' for normal-computer owners,” said Daniel.

Upgrading PC constantly can be an annoying and time-consuming routine. ZWCAD+ has optimized its software. It uses less memory in computer RAM compared to other CAD products. This means quicker performance in opening and processing drawings. The low basic requirement for hardware means that users don’t have to frequently update computer configuration or purchase a high-end computer. Now, because of the easy manipulation process of ZWCAD+, anyone with a computer can design.
