ZWCAD 2020 SP2, continuing to be fast and stable, is released with useful new features and thoughtful improvements.
Exporting in DGN and STL
The two new features, DGN Export and STL Out, are good helpers for users who work in AEC or MFG. With the V8 DGN format supported, data exchange can be carried out between ZWCAD 2020 SP2 and design solutions that load DGN files, for example, MicroStation®, seamlessly. Hence, construction projects of highways, bridges, ships, etc. can proceed smoothly.
As its name suggests, STL Out enables users to export 3D solids and seamless meshes in the STL format. These binary or non-binary STL files are helpful for rapid prototyping, 3D printing and CAM processing.
From Layout to Model Space
Now that the EXPORTLAYOUT command is available, all the visible objects in a Layout can be exported to the model space of a new drawing. Thus, modifications such as copying, exploding and scaling become feasible. Users can even export multiple layouts at once.
Better Displaying for Better Experience
The to-be-calculated areas used to be marked with dotted lines, which are difficult to recognize. Now, areas that users are calculating are shaded, green for adding and brown for subtracting. They help prevent omissions and repeated selection of objects, and also clarify the kind of the ongoing calculation.
Moreover, when the cursor hovers over objects that appear frequently or cover large areas, such as hatches and Xrefs, they flash from time to time. To provide users with a better viewing experience, a new option called Selection Preview Filter is added, enabling users to control whether to highlight specific kinds of objects when the cursor moves over them.
