CorelCAD 2017

SKU: 280360


CorelCAD 2017 is affordable CAD software offering industry-standard CAD tools and features. Transform your 2D designs into 3D models using customizable 2D drafting tools and 3D design tools for any industry. CorelCAD uses the industry-standard .DWG file format, so you can easily collaborate with colleagues/partners using other software. Likewise work in a familiar environment, with a ribbon UI, 3D print-ready features, and STL file output.

CorelCAD 2017 – New Features:

  • Patterns Along Paths. Utilize the new Pattern commands to create copies of specified objects along a path.
  • Centerline Construction. Establish exacting centerlines between pairs of lines, arcs, and polyline segments and even set the extension for centerlines to exceed the shapes that define the contour.
  • Trimming Options. Cut quickly with confidence using the handy Trim and PowerTrim tools to precisely edit hatches and solid, single-color or multicolor-gradient fills.
  • Object Snaps and EntityGrips (Enhanced). Use CorelCAD smart tools, such as object snaps, grips and polar guides, to quickly reposition, align, copy or resize objects.
  • Print Dialog (Enhanced). Enjoy enriched functionality with a redesigned print dialog box that improves the user experience.
  • Auto-Completion for Commands. Streamline your workflow with a UI that allows you to apply an auto-completion function for command and variable names as you type them.
  • SplitDimension. Divide lines wherever needed with the ability to split dimension and extension lines of dimension objects where they cross other shapes.
  • Object Moves. Use the ChangeSpace command to move objects, such as a title block or part list, from your Model workspace to a Layout sheet or vice versa.
  • EditXBlockAttribute. Modify the BlockAttribute values and properties of your inserted Blocks within any drawing to display relevant information about a particular piece or component as text, such as a quantity, weight, or other characteristic.
  • PolyLine Editing (Enhanced). Now, you can taper the width of the PolyLine from the starting point to the ending point, reverse the direction of the PolyLine, add a vertex to the midpoint, or convert a PolyLine to an arc or a line.
  • Best Performance (Enhanced). Gain the computer-aided design strength you need from a new version that has been optimized for the latest operating systems including Windows 10 and macOS Sierra (10.12) and features intuitive updates to the user interface.
  • Built for Speed on Mac, Windows. CorelCAD offers a powerful 64-bit application for Mac OS, 32-bit and 64-bit application for Windows.
  • Plug-Ins (Enhanced). Add more power to your CAD software with the optional plug-ins, such as the extensive CAD tools provided in the CorelCAD Marketplace.

CorelCAD 2017 – All Features:

  • Native .DWG Files. Open, edit, and save files in .DWG format for easy collaboration with colleagues and suppliers. As the native file format, CorelCAD offers .DWG, .DXF, and .DWF support up to the latest AutoCAD (R2013 .DWG) file format versions.
  • Industry-Standard CAD Features. CorelCAD is compatible with all major CAD programs, so experienced users will feel comfortable with the familiar command bar, command aliases, and menu and toolbar items.
  • 3D Modeling and Solid Editing Tools. Add 3D solid primitives to your design and use Boolean operations to unite, intersect, and subtract bodies.
  • Quick Input. Establish a command interface in your project using the cursor in the drawing area.
  • Layer Tools. Work in a consistent manner with Layer Preview and Layer transparency features to align project elements, including drawing components from the recent versions of AutoCAD .DWG files.
  • Layer States Manager. Keep the layers in perfect order by using the Layer States dialog. Save in a LayerState to manage the appearance of design components with named layer states, turn them on and off, and switch between displays.
  • Drawing Constraints. Add the precision you need by applying dimensional constraints to ensure your 2D designs meet your exact proportion, angle, and size requirements by forcing a geometric shape to perform in a specified way.
  • Windows Ribbon UI. Increase productivity with the customizable ribbon UI workspaces and use the contextual ribbon options to select and implement the various design tools you need, such as tables, in-place text editing, and more. (Only available in CorelCAD 2017 for Windows.)
  • Drawing Tabs. Stay organized in CorelCAD on Windows with the ability to instantly switch between several documents that are open and active at the same time. (Only available in CorelCAD 2017 for Windows.)
  • In-Place Text Editing. Create or modify existing text with the ability to quickly stack text and paste formatted text from Microsoft Word within your project.
  • Annotative Scaling. Keep your important text readable and separate from your drawing and viewport scale functions.
  • Head-Up Display. Use the Head-Up toolbar to select various entities and then zoom in on the selected entities to make required changes.
  • Dynamic Blocks. Save valuable drawing time by inserting dynamic blocks from AutoCAD and then accessing the block settings and attributes for your own .DWG files in CorelCAD.
  • Table Support. Insert, delete, merge, or resize cells, rows and columns within existing tables. It's the fastest way to include important text or instructions into any drawing while maintaining the linear flow.
  • Custom Coordinate Systems. Make it easier to draw and align locations with the ability to create custom coordinate systems to align the construction plane to drawing objects.
  • Design Resources. With the comprehensive Design Resources, users can instantly find, access, and manage design components like blocks, styles, drawings, and images, for use within and across a variety of CAD projects.
  • CAD File Standards Verification. CorelCAD 2017 can verify a CAD drawing against drawing standards such as those stored in .DWS files.
  • Smart Dimension Tools. Use dimension tools for accurate measurements, plus the Smart Dimension tool will suggest the most appropriate and precise dimension type automatically.
  • Dimension Offset Distances. Use this time-saving tool to align the dimension lines with consistent distances from surrounding shapes.
  • Annotation and Collaboration. Use the unique VoiceNotes tool to add recorded messages, reminders, or instructions directly in your drawing. Mark up drawing items with freehand sketches.
  • PDF and DGN Underlay Functionality. Attach one or more pages of a PDF document or DGN files originated from MicroStation or other CAD software to your drawing as an Underlay.
  • 3D Viewing Capabilities. View 3D models from multiple viewpoints or roll them in 3D space interactively. Use Tiled Viewports to split a drawing into multiple view tiles and set them to display your 3D model in different views.
  • Transition from 2D to 3D. Create your 2D design in CorelCAD or create 2D sketches in CorelDRAW. Import the sketch into CorelCAD and transform the 2D sketch to 3D. Extrude, revolve or sweep 2D entities along a path to progress from 2D drafting into 3D modeling. (Import and export of CorelDRAW (.CDR) file format is only available in CorelCAD 2017 for Windows.)
  • 3D Mouse Support. Navigate in 3D with support for 3Dconnexion input devices. Rotate 2D and 3D drawings by moving the cap of the 3D mouse. (Only available in CorelCAD 2017 for Windows.)
  • Print 3D Designs. Export multiple 3D solid objects to .STL (Stereolithography), the most commonly used file format for 3D prints.
  • CorelDRAW File Import. Easily import CorelDRAW (.CDR) and Corel DESIGNER (.DES) files into CorelCAD as model space objects with a representation in a layout sheet. (Only available in CorelCAD 2017 for Windows.)
  • CorelDRAW and Corel DESIGNER Export. Export to .CDR and .DES to easily re-purpose your work in CorelDRAW for presentations and marketing-related deliverables, or in Corel DESIGNER for technical documentation. (Only available in CorelCAD 2017 for Windows.)
  • Legacy File Format Support. Save drawings back to R12 .DWG or .DXF format to work with them on legacy hardware devices or using older software, and recover damaged .DWG and .DXF files in all format versions.
  • Easy File Sharing. Collaborate and share more easily with colleagues and clients with support for leading formats, including .PDF, .SVG, .EPS, and .DWF.
  • Work with GIS Files. Visualize maps and geographic models created by geographic information systems (GIS) applications with support for ESRI Shape files (.SHP).
