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.

STP STandardized Exchange of Product File

A file format used for the exchange of 3D data across various computer systems, including CAD, CAM, and CAE, in a standardized format. Some of the benefits and features of STEP files are:

  • Compatibility: STEP is widely supported by many software applications and platforms, making it easy to share and collaborate on 3D models across different domains and industries.
  • Accuracy: STEP preserves the exact shape and dimensions of 3D models, unlike some other mesh formats (SKP, OBJ, or STL) that may introduce errors or distortions during conversion.
  • STEP Files Converter: STEP files can be very large, especially when they contain complex or high-resolution 3D models. One way to reduce the file size is to use Autoconverter software, which can utilize the faceted BREP representation, potentially saving up to one-third of the file size.
  • Materials: STEP file format supports colors per assembly. However, it lacks an alpha component. This means that any transparency effects applied to 3D models will not be visible or preserved in the STEP files.
