ZWCAD Keeps Becoming Faster and Faster
To back up the statement, “ZWCAD finds its new advantage to be faster and faster”, tremendous R&D work has been done to raise efficiency. As a result, in ZWCAD 2022, drawing opening and zooming are comparatively faster by 40%, panning and creating polylines by 80%, modifying by 60%, and plotting by 30%.
Moreover, advanced features were developed to meet the needs for quicker delivery of projects, even the complex ones. As easy as taking a photo, you could generate the 2D version of 3D objects from the current view instantly with Flatshot, sparing the time of drawing conversion.
Also, associative arrays allow you to swiftly array objects in rectangular or polar patterns, or along a path. To adjust them, simply drag the grips or edit in the newly-added contextual tab with previews of changes.
Persistent Advancement for Friendlier Experience
Apart from faster, ZWCAD 2022 is made friendlier. To begin with, licenses can be activated even when your computer is offline. Now, by scanning QR codes, you could directly activate and assess ZWCAD licenses.
Plus, you don’t need to choose between the Classic or Ribbon menu because they can be displayed at the same time now. Meanwhile, when there are multiple viewports, you could drag the edges of them to change their size. Similarly, new viewports can be created by dragging the edges which are close to the frame of the interface.

At its core, ZWCAD is a platform CAD solution, which means that it should support various file formats. Now, mainstream .ifc files can be imported to this new version. To quickly check the details of the BIM model, you could simply click the parts in the model space or the structure tree of the IFC Structure Panel. Another bonus is that you could extract and export such model information using DATA EXTRACTION.
