ZWCAD - a modern tool for the modern designer

ZWCAD is a computer-aided design (CAD) program. It is an excellent alternative to expensive CAD systems, while remaining a fully functional and efficient tool. It provides full compatibility with the most popular format for writing and reading DWG / DXF.

With its help you can easily create both 2D designs - in the Standard version, or work on 3D solids by choosing the Professional version. The latter also allows you to work with overlays and industry applications. The program is characterized by a very intuitive interface, which allows you to quickly and smoothly implement the operation. A number of industry overlays are available for ZWCAD to speed up and streamline work - including those for: building, construction, architecture, mechanics, installation, road construction and surveying.
