ZWCAD Architecture - Built for Immediate Productivity
ZWCAD Architecture software is ZWCAD+ for architects to gain immediate productivity. It includes all the functionality of ZWCAD+, plus content libraries and tools designed specifically for architectural drawings, which enhance the workflow, automate tedious drafting tasks, reduce errors and increase efficiency.
Built on Your Familiar ZWCAD+, 100% DWG
ZWCAD Architecture is built on ZWCAD+, you can keep working in your familiar drafting environment and use familiar CAD tools. And most importantly, your drawing is saved in DWG format, which enables you to share your design with others seamlessly.
Customized Architecture Layer Management, Automatic Layer Landing
The intelligent layer management system automatically places items on the correct layer, applies color, and linetype as you create your drawing. And, the software can be easily customized to your company requirements.
Draw in 2D, Create in 3D
Draw your plans in 2D, switch views, and all of your components can be viewed in 3D.Rest assured that your 3D model remains consistent with your 2D plan and vice versa. The visual style Gouraud allows you to understand the project intuitively.
Comprehensive Built-in Block Library
The built-in Block Library contains hundreds of components that let you detail your plans with ease. Components like furniture, kitchenware, appliances, vehicles, plants and more are provided. You can easily insert them to the drawing and eliminates the need to draw from scratch.
Directly create walls, doors, windows
Generate walls from single lines and grids. Doors and types of windows such as common windows, bay windows, arc windows, and rectangle holes are available for you to choose from. Everything is resizable by double clicking on the object and modify the parametric. If you remove a door or window, the wall will mend itself automatically.
Automatically-generate Elevation and Section
From the completed 2D plan, elevation and section can be generated with a few clicks. Compose floors, walls, doors, stairs, and roofs from the 2D plan.
Re-edit beams, slabs, columns
Beams, slabs, and columns can be created with specified tools. These parametric objects can be edited by double-clicking or from the properties palette. Generate and modify them as you like by stretching the grips.
Add roof, dormers, and skylights with a few clicks
ZWCAD Architecture offers tool to create roofs base on walls or poly line. From simple to complex, flat to slope, generate different types of roof with a few clicks. You can also add dormer windows and skylights as you wish.
One click to generate door/window table
It takes just one click to generate doors and window tables to the drawing, no need for manual summary. This is a super intelligent tool that ensures accuracy and efficiency.
Specified Architecture dimension and symbols
Special tools are provided for architecture annotation. Dimension like adding grid numbers, adding door/window liner dimension in batch. This also allows for the addition of symbols such as elevation, index symbol, detailed drawing symbol, compass, and more.
Annotate room easily
Intelligent tools are provided to recognize rooms and add hatch automatically, turning on/ off room name and room area labels. At last generate the room table with a few clicks.
Export to 3D
You can export to DAE format that allows you to use your drawing in Sketch up. As well, exporting to STL allows you to create your work with a 3D printer.
Flexible workflow between desktop and mobile
With a built-in Online Module from ZWCAD+, you can save your drawing and customized configuration to third-party cloud service. Also, with CAD Pockets, you can work freely on-the-go through your tablet or smart phone.
