Dimensioning in 3D can be a tricky process in CAD. The UCS (the coordinates system used in 3D model space) has to be manipulated so that dimensions are true to their angle an display properly when viewed in 3D.
Thankfully there’s a real easy solution to this painstaking task in our new Mech-Q release. In both AutoCAD and AViCAD (our AutoCAD alternative) you’ll find a new tool called 3D Dimension. It can be located within a Toolbar we call Piping Extra. Read more →
We are happy to inform you that an AViCAD Pro update is now available! Now DWG 2.5-2017 support with quick install and simplified registration plus hundreds of bonus utilities.
AViCAD is a IntelliCAD based CAD Application which is rapidly becoming the choice among firms across the USA, Canada and Europe. You will find that the commands and icons and commands will be instantly familiar to you. Its an extremely affordable AutoCAD alternative.
Best of all AViCAD is 100% compatible with our engineering software. It features a easy to use drop down menu and toolbar interface that integrates into the CAD program.
And AViCAD is fully Compatible with the Windows 8 /8.1/10 too!
AViCAD will run on all 32 and 64 bit Windows computers, plus it saves to DWG files by default without the need for manual import or export operations. AViCAD is available in both (AViCAD Piping ) or both 2D & 3D (AViCAD Pro).
Over the past year our development team have been busy creating an even more dynamic drawing solution with new features and utilities to optimize the design process and enhance the entire drawing process.
AViCAD may not have every feature found in AutoCAD, but let’s face it – for everyday 2D and 3D drafting you just cant beat the price.
AViCAD is very affordable – – infact 8 times more affordable in price than AutoCAD. You’ll have over 90% of same functionality found in AutoCAD. Commands will be the same and the learning curve is none.
After testing the Mech-Q demo I found out that generating piping and structural drawings was a breeze … I can stress that Mech-Q is the best and quickest product in generating all types of engineering drawings. Senior CAD Draughtsman, Sinclair Knight Merz Ltd
Mech-Q Piping is fantastic, when I draw a Flange for example, it gives me the exact dimension of the part based on what criteria I enter. When doing this by hand drafting its no comparison to what I can achieve with Mech-Q. Paul S.
