DWG ZWCAD Drawing

ZWSOFT's ZWCAD is a professional and cost-effective CAD platform that offers many features and benefits for designers, engineers, and architects. Here are some of the reasons why you should choose ZWCAD over other CAD products:

  • Compatibility with AutoCAD: ZWCAD is fully compatible with the latest DWG file format, which means you can open, edit, and save files created by AutoCAD without any loss of data or quality. You can also use the same commands, aliases, menus, toolbars, and shortcuts as AutoCAD, making the transition to ZWCAD easy and smooth.
  • Support for 3D and GIS Formats: ZWCAD supports a wide range of 3D and GIS formats, thanks to our Automesher Application and Automapki Application plugins. These plugins enhance your ZWCAD functionality to import and export files from formats such as STL, OBJ, SKP, FBX, STEP, SHP, KML, and more.
  • Customization with ObjectZRX: ZWCAD is highly customizable, thanks to the ObjectZRX technology from ZWSOFT. ObjectZRX is an object-oriented programming interface in C++ that allowed us to develop our plugins for you.

SHP ESRI Shapefile

A file format specifically designed to store georeferenced shapes. It is widely used in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for its ability to represent a variety of geometries and their associated data attributes. It consists of the following components:

  • SHP Geometries: The shapes that define the spatial features, such as points, lines, and polygons. Each geometry has a unique identifier and a spatial reference system that specifies its location on the earth’s surface.
  • SHP Attributes: The data that describe the properties of the geometries, such as name, type, area, population, etc. Each attribute has a name and a data type, such as string, integer, float, etc.
  • SHP Files: The physical files that store the geometries and attributes in a binary format. A SHP shapefile is actually a collection of at least three files: a .shp file that contains the geometries, a .dbf file that contains the attributes, and a .shx file that indexes the geometries.

SHP Converter: SHP shapefiles are widely used in various GIS applications, as they offer a simple and efficient way to store and manipulate geospatial data. One of these applications is our Automapki Application, which is an add-on for AutoCAD, BricsCAD, and ZWCAD. It allows you to import SHP shapefiles into the DWG model space and export DWG drawing entities to SHP shapefiles. This enables you to easily integrate geospatial data with your CAD designs and share them with other GIS platforms.
