What's new

global changes

  • Non destructive NURBS curves applied as native type
  • Updated complete toolset for professional 2D CAD drawing.
  • New most advanced object snapping engine compared to 3dsMax, Maya, Softimage….
  • Real-Time curve booleans feature working with all curve primitive tools
  • Real-Time polygon drilling feature working with all curve primitive tools
  • New interactive clone toolset for fast, precise and effective multiplying geometry.
  • Updated NURBS based shape library which allows instant scene change when using it
  • Import-Export CAD file formats, starting with DXF, geometries are imported-exported without precision loose, preserving layers information.
