Competitively priced, CorelCAD offers small-to-medium-sized businesses and larger enterprises an affordable option for site-wide deployments, making it an ideal solution for day-to-day design projects that require a high level of precision and detail. Improved Workflow and Compatibility Built on Leading CAD Technology Corel has partnered with Graebert GmbH, a leading CAD developer with over 25 years of industry experience, to develop and market CorelCAD to a wide audience of users.
As a result, existing CAD users will enjoy an intuitive environment with familiar command bars, aliases, menus and toolbars. In addition, CorelCAD provides excellent compatibility, working natively with the AutoCAD® DWG™ file format and eliminating the need for an import / export process to read and write files in the industry standard format. “The high cost of many CAD solutions makes it a prohibitive expense for small-to-medium-sized businesses. CorelCAD represents a great alternative, particularly for technical designers seeking power and precision at an affordable price,” said Klaus Vossen, Product Manager for Technical Graphics at Corel.
“We’re confident that CorelCAD’s combination of price and performance will provide a compelling alternative for architects, engineers, construction firms and any enterprise seeking precision tools for 2D and 3D design.” Powerful Feature Set Delivers New Levels of Productivity Focused on helping users to be as productive as possible, CorelCAD emphasizes file format support, customization and ease of integration into existing design workflows.
Key capabilities include the ability to: Open & save DWG files natively: CorelCAD™ uses DWG™ as its native file format and offers DXF™ and DWF support up to AutoCAD® 2010 file format versions (used by AutoCAD® 2010-AutoCAD® 2012). Open, work with and save files in DWG format for worry-free collaboration with colleagues, suppliers and partners. Plus, save drawings back to R12 DWG or DXF format, and recover DWG and DXF files in all format versions. Design in 2D & 3D: Along with a comprehensive set of 2D drawing features, CorelCAD includes a set of 3D solid modeling tools. Add 3D solid primitives to your design and use Boolean operations to unite, intersect and subtract bodies. Extrude or revolve 2D entities, sweep 2D entities along a path, or loft between 2D entities to create solid objects. Slice and intersect solids, and edit edges, faces and bodies of 3D solids.
Customize workspaces & automate common tasks for greater efficiency: For every industry that relies on CAD tools, there’s a different workflow. To that end, CorelCAD is easily customizable to meet the needs of a variety of sectors and projects. Without any programming knowledge, you can fine-tune the user interface to your working needs. Custom workspace configurations can then be saved in user profiles and deployed throughout an organization to tailor the user interface to specific project needs and maximize productivity.
