Additionally, I was able to record a reply in response directly from my iPhone to send back for review.

Annotation features aside, the app has some surprisingly powerful features for mobile workers, including the ability to further edit a drawing and print it to a PDF file for sharing. Although the app may not be necessary for all users, it's important to consider that one of the driving factors in many modern CAD programs ranging from various Autodesk offerings to Onshape is the ability to share and edit files directly from a mobile device.

Similar to Google Docs, companies that offer their own cloud storage solution allow users to tap into the cloud from nearly any device with Internet connectivity. In other words, once a user has purchased ZWCAD and has downloaded CAD Pockets users can get a free month of use of the Premium edition if they sign in 10 times or more per month , they can use this workflow for as long as they want free from worrying about files that may be lost if they ever were to cancel a subscription.

As a plus, CAD Pockets also syncs other file types including PDFs for quickly reviewing proposals or other important documents that are relevant to the project.

Again, this may not be a deciding factor for some users, but it is another great example of how ZWCAD offers many of the same capabilities as more expensive programs for a fraction of the price. Easily syncing a DWG file to a Dropbox folder for on-the-go collaboration.

With bit support for Windows and multiplatform support in the works for Mac and Linux, project teams and leaders will be able to work on their preferred hardware—not to mention on their mobile devices with CAD Pockets. To put it simply, ZWCAD is a powerful tool with extremely useful features that rival those of competitors at a significantly more affordable price with no license expiration.

As an intuitive piece of software that can be picked up in a matter of hours, it is also ideal for new users. With the introduction of new tools and further support for existing compatibilities—ranging from the simple yet powerful Flatten tool and the CAD Pockets mobile app—the company has demonstrated that it is listening actively to the needs of the modern CAD user and is continuing with its dedication to make working with CAD and drawings as affordable and easy as ever.

New users can download a day free trial. You had better create a backup file if the drawing is important. You can recover a drawing file by saving a bak file to a dwg file. Recover a Damaged File You can recover some or all of data by reverting to a backup file or using commands to find and correct errors if a drawing file is damaged.

The extension name is. Recovering a file attempts to open one of the following file types: Standard drawing files with a. A drawing file may be damaged by a hardware failure. Object snaps. If a drawing is damaged. Design Web Format files with a.

Create and Save a Drawing You can quickly reference other drawings to copy and paste between drawings. ZWCAD allows you to open and check damaged files to attempt file recovery. You can minimize loss by saving files frequently. You can also audit any open file to check it for errors.

Files can become damaged for many reasons. On the Open and Save tap of Config dialog box. ZWCAD can recover a slightly damaged drawing file while opening it. Drawing templates with a. Chapter 3 2 In Files of Type. Save a Drawing You save drawing files for later use just as you do with other Microsoft Windows applications.

The file extension for drawing files is. When program or system stopped by accident. At the next startup. After you have saved your drawing for the first time. In addition to drawing. With the drawing open that you want to check. Drawing Recovery Once terminated by hardware problems. Recovered drawing file saved when program fails.

You can also set up automatic saving and backup files and save only selected objects. The ASCII file is saved in the same folder as the audited drawing and has the same name as the drawing file. Create and Save a Drawing If you created your drawing using a template.

You can recover the drawing by reverting to a previous version of your drawing from the automatically saved file. You can select entities or a block definition in your current drawing and save them in a new drawing file.

If you select the automatic save option. The filename is the current drawing name. You can save a drawing with a new name and in any of the following file formats: You can revert to the previous version of your drawing anytime using a. To save a drawing: You can choose a. Save Your Drawing Automatically You can specify to save drawing files automatically in order to minimize the lost data once a problem occurs.

The temporary files are removed automatically when a drawing closes normally. The description also can be saved in the new drawing. In order to do that. The incremental save updates only the portions of the saved drawing file you changed. Once the software encounters exceptional shutdown. When errors are encountered in the procedure of some programs. This percentage increases after each incremental save until it reaches the specified maximum value.

Drawing templates allow you to easily create new drawings that reuse your drawing settings and entities. It is recommend you perform a full save before transmitting or archiving a drawing. This option required more time to save a drawing file but can reduce the size of drawing files.

Chapter 3 is compatible with various versions of AutoCAD. Sending error report may help assess the stability of ZWCAD software while working in user environment. DMP as well as error drawing files included in each package. Drawing files will contain a percentage of potentially wasted space when you use incremental saves.

From this prompt box. In this error report dialog box. Create and Save a Drawing name with the compressed package automatically generated. DMP and the crashed drawing file itself. EXE has encountered a problem and needs to close. Describe Error Contents When errors occur in the program. Don't send Additionally. If the network isn't connecting. Zooming in and out One of the easiest ways to change the magnification of the drawing is to zoom in or out by a preset increment.

When the drawing is regenerated. ZOOM does not change the absolute size of objects in the drawing. Redrawing and regenerating a drawing As you work on a drawing. Sometimes a drawing must be recalculated. The scale and view do not change in model space while panning or zooming in a locked layout viewport.

Control the Drawing Views 4. You can also manually initiate a regeneration. The cursor changes to a magnifying glass when a zoom tool is active.

This occurs automatically. Zoom out to reduce the magnification so you can see more of the drawing. If more than one window is displayed. To regenerate the current window. The portion of the drawing located at the center of the current viewport NOTE If you are working in a layout viewport and cannot zoom.

The Zoom Out tool reduces the magnification of the drawing by half. On the Zoom toolbar. You can remove these elements by refreshing. You can change the magnification of your drawing at any time by zooming. Zooming methods To zoom. The lower-left corner of the specified area becomes the lower-left corner of the new view. If you have a mouse with a wheel. To define the portion of the drawing to zoom. Zoom to Magnify a Specified Rectangular Area You can specify a rectangular area defined by two corners to display the objects within that area as large as possibly.

Control the Drawing Views remains centered on the screen as you zoom in and out. To zoom in real time. Chapter 4 To specify a rectangular window around the area you want to magnify. When you change the magnification factor.

Each rotation of the wheel away from you zooms out. Zooming to a specific scale You can increase or decrease the magnification of your view by a precise scale factor measured relative to the overall size of the drawing or in relation to the current display. By right-clicking. Displaying the previous view of a drawing After you zoom in or pan to view a portion of your drawing in greater detail.

Selecting this tool repeatedly steps back through up to 25 successive zoomed or panned views. On the Zoom menu. The following figure shows the results of center scaling the drawing of ratio 1: You can specify the scale factor relative to paper space unit or to the current view. You can also change the magnification of the drawing relative to its current magnification by adding an x after the magnification scale factor. If you type a magnification factor of.

To change the magnification of the view relative to the overall size of the drawing. To zoom to a specific scale relative to the current display 1 Do one of the following: Type zoom and then press Enter. Combining zooming and panning With the Center option. Control the Drawing Views of the current viewport remains centered on the screen. The Zoom Extents tool on the zoom toolbar displays the drawing to its extents.

The view can display the objects on layers that are turned off but does not include objects on frozen layers. ZOOM All displays all of objects within either the user-defined limits or the drawing extents. If you have drawn any entities outside the defined limits of the drawing. If you drew all entities within the limits of the drawing.

Displaying the entire drawing ZOOM Extents displays a view that includes all of the objects in the drawing as large as possible. You can use the Zoom All tool on the zoom toolbar to display an entire drawing.

Chapter 4 2 Select the point you want located at the center of the new view. Rotating lets you view your drawing from any angle.

Doing this changes the portion of the drawing you are viewing without changing the current magnification. To turn scroll bars on or off Do one of the following: PAN does not change the location or magnification of objects on your drawing. Like panning with a camera. Control the Drawing Views image fill the display to the greatest possible magnification.

Panning shifts or Zoom extents displays all entities. Scrolling lets you move around in the drawing horizontally and vertically. Panning lets you move the drawing in any direction. The size of the scroll box in relation to the scroll bar indicates the current level of drawing magnification.

With the Realtime option of PAN. The position of the scroll box in relation to the scroll bar indicates the location of the center of the drawing in relation to the extents of the drawing the smallest rectangle containing all the entities in the drawing. You can move the view of a drawing displayed in the current viewport by scrolling. Using scroll bars To assist you in navigating within a drawing. Zoom all displays to drawing limits.

The second point indicates the amount of pan displacement relative to the first point. The only change is the portion of the drawing displayed.

The first point. To pan using a mouse with a wheel Press and hold the wheel. You can also specify new views for current drawing while panning and zooming within aerial view window.

In the process of drawing. Chapter 4 slides the view of the drawing horizontally. For precise panning. To pan in real time. The magnification of the drawing remains the same. Aerial view window is quite useful when displaying a large drawing within a small window. To pan. Click on Global button to mark current view with a wide frame and display the entire drawing.

To Zoom a view in Aerial View window 1. Click on the Aerial view window to pan and zoom the drawing. Command line: Click on Zoom In button. Through panning and zooming the view frame. Click on Zoom Out button to decreases the drawing to half of its original size centered on the current view box. Aerial View window with multiple viewports If multiple viewports are contained in current drawing.

Double click on the view frame in Aerial View window.

Click on the Aerial View window. Drag to the right to zoom out the view. Zooming the views within the Aerial View will not affect the scaling factor of the images within the drawing area. Drag the view frame arbitrary by way of moving the mouse. You can select Auto viewport option from the right-click menu on the Aerial View window.

Among multiple viewports. Viewports created on the Model tab completely fill the drawing area and do not overlap. Use Model Space Viewports You can do the following operations at the model space viewport: Set Snap. When executing a command. Chapter 4 However when you draw or modify some complex drawings. Three model space viewports are shown in the illustration. Display Multiple Views in Model Space Model space viewport is the drawing area that you can divide them into one or more adjacent rectangular views on the Model tap.

Save orientations of UCS with individual viewports. Set Model Space Viewports In large or complex drawings. You can also open and display multiple drawings. As you make changes in one viewport. In case of the dynamic update is turned off. Name a viewport arrangement in order to you can reuse it on the Model tab or insert it on a layout tab. You can view the drawing in a second window. When you begin a new drawing. After you divide a single window into multiple windows. Working with multiple views of a single drawing You can open and work with several views of the same drawing simultaneously.

You can divide a single drawing window into multiple tiled windows called viewports on the Model tab.

When the cursor stays at the current viewport. Control the Drawing Views When you work on 3D models.

You can restore named views in individual windows. You can switch from one window to another at any time. You can also save and restore named window configurations and display a list of the current and saved window configurations. You can control the grid. You cannot change the current viewport when a view command is in progress. Select and Use the Current Viewport To make the desired viewport the current viewport.

The illustrations below show several default model space viewport configurations. You can control the number of windows created and the arrangement of the windows. Chapter 4 2 In viewports menu.

The name can be up to 31 characters in length and can contain letters. Working with multiple drawings With the multiple document interface MDI feature.

You can delete views when you do not need them.

If you cut and paste an entity and then want to undo that action. Save and Restore Views You can save views by name and restore them for plotting or when you need to refer to specific details.

A named view is comprised of specific magnification. If you want to restore views among sessions. Each drawing appears in a drawing window. You can also restore up to 10 previous views.

You can easily copy entities from one drawing to another. Because you can open and work on several drawings at one time. When you end drawing. You can see two or more drawings side by side. When you work with more than one drawing open in its own window. When you restore views. If you copy an entity from one window to another and then want to undo that action.

A drawing can be saved along with unlimited views. An isometric view is a typical viewpoint that helps you create a 3D view which reduces the number of visually overlapping objects. Named views can be used to do the following: Restore views on the model space viewport or layout viewport. View a Parallel Projection in 3D You can view a parallel projection of 3D models at any location in model space.

You can specify a layout view when you open the drawing only if you save the drawing from that specified layout tab. Chapter 4 4. If you are working in paper space. To determine the angle or viewpoint. Select a preset 3D view from the View toolbar. Specify the area to plot Determined which model space view is displayed when opening the drawing. Set front and back clipping planes to limit the objects that is displayed.

The view in paper space is always a plane view. Type angles or coordinate that represent the viewing location in 3D. Save a View When you name and save a view. Modify a view of the current UCS. Viewing 3D model is available only in model space. You can specify a new viewpoint to create new objects or modify the existing objects. The settings for each window are also saved. Change the 3D view dynamically using pointing device. The number and placement of the windows are saved exactly as they are currently displayed.

To dynamically set a view direction 1 Choose View. The viewing direction establishes the viewing position. Control the Drawing Views The plane view is a view that you look toward the origin 0. As you change the viewpoint settings. Command line PLAN 4. Current UCS. These views represent commonly used options: When you view a drawing from the default viewpoint 0.

Select predefined standard orthographic and isometric views by name or description. This method results in a view of the XY plane. Setting the viewing direction You view three dimensional drawings by setting the viewing direction. Isometric Choose Preset 3D Views You can define perspective views of a model to create realistic effects. You can change the viewing direction to look at the drawing from a different vantage point or to work on a three dimensional model from a different orientation.

Choose one what you want.

SW southwest Isometric. If you move toward the upper-left corner of the box. When the snap angle is set to 0. To understand how the isometric views work. If you move toward the lower-left corner of the box. Set Isometric Grid and Snap By aligning along three major axes. The snap and grips align along the SE southeast Isometric. The right isometric plane defined by a pair of The left isometric plane defined by a pair of The top isometric plane defined by a pair of Chapter 4 In addition.

With Isometric Snap on. NE northeast Isometric. Draw Isometric Circles You can create an isometric circle on the current isometric plane using Ellipse Isocircle. The specified point indicates your position in 3D space when you view the model while looking toward the origin 0. Define a 3D View with Coordinate Values or Angles You can define a viewing direction by typing the coordinate values of a point or two rotation angles angle from the XY plane and angle from the X axis.

Change a 3D View Dynamically You can view objects from any viewing direction by holding down mouse or other pointing device and moving dynamically. The conventions for defining standard views are different among different industries. The Isocircle option is available only when the Isometric Snap is on. In architectural ARC design. With dynamic viewing.

HIDE command displays only the silhouette lines of the objects. When you view or plot wireframes. ESC or choose Exit from the shortcut menu. To close 3D Orbit. You can also exclude objects from the hiding process by zooming into a part of the drawing. You can use HIDE command to remove the hidden lines to verify the current placement of these surfaces. Shown as the following picture: Hiding background lines makes the display much clearer. When the current view is shaded. Hide Lines You can suppress the objects partly or entirely that are located behind other objects using Hide.

Remove hidden lines on one or more selected objects to improve performance. It may take a long time to calculate and obscure hidden lines if the drawing is complex. Hiding background objects that in reality would be obscured by objects in the front background simplifies the display of the drawing and clarifies the design. Chapter 4 You can execute move or zoom operations as the 3D Orbit is active. When the 3D Orbit is active.

It does not display the inside edges generated by a nested face of an object. The FullRender command generates the highest quality image and generally includes shadow effects. Creating rendered images Creating a rendered image of your drawing removes hidden lines and then shades the surface as though it were illuminated from multiple light sources. Render The Render command starts the rendering process and generates a rendered image of the current drawing.

The rendered image is displayed overtop the drawing window and is displayed incrementally while it is processed. A background is also automatically added to the image. Ray tracing determines where shadows fall and how reflections on shiny materials such as metal and glass appear. To create a quickly rendered image. Full Render The FullRender command starts the rendering process and generates a rendered image of the current drawing.

The rendered image can also be saved to a file from the Render Settings window. Type render and then press Enter. A background such as a cloudy sky or an imported raster graphic such as a stone wall can also be added behind the image.

You can modify shaded objects as you normally would. When a shaded object is selected. You can modify the reflective properties of the materials that make up your model to control how the light rays reflect off its surfaces. At any time during the rendering process. Full rendering can create a base on which your model is displayed.


The image can be redrawn without the rendering delay by using the "Redisplay Last Image" command on the Render Settings window. On the Render toolbar. The Render command does not include shadow effects.

Rays from these imaginary light sources are traced as they reflect off and through the surfaces of the model. The Render command generates a lower quality image than the FullRender command but the image is displayed more quickly. Once the image has been displayed. You can then click on the "OK" button to accept the properties. Folders in the file selection box can be opened or closed by clicking on the plus or minus sign to the left of the folder name.

Creating custom rendered images ZWCAD allows you to create custom rendered images by applying materials. Therefore there must be some method of mapping the 3D coordinates of the surface to the 2D coordinates of the material. Material Mapping controls how the material is mapped to the surfaces in the drawing. Chapter 4 To create a fully rendered image.

Materials can be assigned to either individual drawing entities. The quickest way to get started with materials is to select from among the predefined materials available on the Material Library tab.

If no material assignment has been made for the layer. When rendering an entity. Most of the procedural materials and bitmapped materials are 2D in nature. Material Library allows you to select from among a variety of predefined materials. Type fullrender and then press Enter. Predefined materials are available in the materials library. For a Cylindrical projection. The available predefined materials are shown in a file selection box on the left-hand side of the window. The Plane Normal Vector defines the orientation of the projection plane and is perpendicular or normal to the plane itself.

If no material assignment has been made for that entity. For a Spherical projection. You can choose to use procedural or bitmap materials.

Once you click on the material name. Finally if no material properties have been assigned to that color. Materials Specify materials for different surfaces and define how the materials map to those surfaces. Individual materials can be selected by clicking on the name ending in ". Ambient light.

Images can be saved in BMP. The background is an infinite. Shadows will be cast by surfaces in the drawing and you will see highlights where the light reflects off of the surfaces. Printing a rendered image You cannot print a rendered image directly to a printer. Lights can be placed either outside the field of view or inside to illuminate different areas of the scene. After you save a rendered image. Control the Drawing Views Backgrounds Specify the background or backdrop for a rendered image.

The background is not affected by lighting however. Point light: A Point light represents light emitting from a single point in the drawing. Type materials.

Point lights can also have a size or diameter to them so that they cast soft shadows. Existing users will be happy to see that little has changed in ZWCAD's interface and when firing up the new release, users will still find the ability to switch between the familiar Classic and Ribbon interfaces for different working environments.

Not only does this help existing users get started right away with the new release while also remaining intuitive for new users , it also eliminates the need for any relearning costs for teams, which can be easy to overlook. Additionally, those who prefer to work directly from the command line will find it conveniently located at the bottom of the screen.

These include the already-introduced SmartVoice, which enables the use of voice commands via the computer's microphone, and SmartMouse, which enables the use of commands that are triggered with a mouse gesture. When might you use these interface enhancements? While these were not available to demo at the time of my review, they will just as likely be a welcome addition to the ZWCAD workflow for many. As a competing format to Autodesk's DWG, DGN drawings are commonly used in large-scale projects including shipbuilding, buildings and infrastructure projects such as process plants, bridges and highways.

Users who are used to working with multiple files at a time will be happy to fire up the new File Compare feature, which automatically identifies and highlights differences between similar versions of drawings that would otherwise be difficult to spot by the naked eye.

The result is a much more streamlined workflow that leaves very little room for human error. In an effort to help minimize the back and forth required to flatten files or other factors that compromise the quality of a drawing, the new release also introduces a new Flatten command for creating 2D representations of the native 3D files by projecting them onto a desired viewing plane.

With the addition of a new Advanced Grips Editor, users can now move, manipulate and reshape objects quickly and easily with adaptive control. Those who depend on third-party cloud storage solutions such as Google Drive and Dropbox to keep the projects organized can connect their accounts to work within the ZWSOFT ecosystem either in the office or traveling to a client meeting.

Since ZWCAD isn't natively connected to the cloud for sharing files, as Autodesk users will be familiar with—and more users than ever are relying on the cloud to share files quickly and easily with stakeholders—I chose to take a deeper look at the ZWCAD to-CAD Pockets workflow to compare it to other file-sharing user experiences. In this case, it was a free Dropbox account that I set up specifically for the review and had synced to my desktop for ease of use.

The CAD Pockets app was able to sync easily and directly to this folder and pulled open my drawing with surprising speed. Going back to the original SmartVoice feature that was discussed earlier, I was pleasantly surprised to see that my file retained this annotation information and I was able to listen to my voice annotation as if I had just sent it to a client or another stakeholder.If you have more than one drawing open.

You can draw a polygon using any of the following methods: You can convert your drawing to a PDF, and after that you can merge the PDF with other documents for instance if you need to add a price quote from a Word document, you can print the Word document via novaPDF to the PDF that contains your drawing — they will be automatically merged.

If you have a program that is not already supported. Your drawing can also contain an unlimited number of additional layers.
