DesignCAD 3D MAX 2018 provides leading-edge design enhancements in 2D drafting, rendering and 3D modeling. You will enjoy the new Icon Scaling feature added to 2018 version plus a lot more enhancement done to this CAD software.

Experience 3D Printing Enhancements

There are three new commands that check watertight 3D models. These new commands are preventative measures for watertight model.

  • Inspect a 3D solid model and distinguish if it is water tight
  • Check if a Boolean operation will result in a watertight model;
  • Check a Solid Surface for leaks and for the presence of extra facets which may prevent water tightness of the 3D model.

Take note that a watertight model is crucial when executing 3D printing of your designs.

Breakthrough of Icon Scaling

With this new tool, icon scaling is easy and possible. You can scale your icons anywhere between 16 to 64 pixels.

Rendering Enhancements

The latest 3D Max 2018 has improved its rendering capabilities. It delivers dynamic and realistic viewing of 3D models which includes:  Normals Render, Mixed Mode Rendering, as well as Mirrored solids. Furthermore, DesignCAD’s Solid 3D early tools have been revise for the refine execution of outward-pointing Normals.

Latest Dynamic Text Scaling

At last, this CAD software introduces a new Text option that promotes consistency in drawing of 2D and 3D text. For  both text format, you can preset their sizes, or scale proportionally between the first and second points set.

Enable Import/Export Support

With DesignCAD 2018, you are able to import DWG and DXF files in AutoCAD 2018 format then,  Export DWG and DXF files to AutoCAD 2018 format.

Latest AutoHatch Feature

DesignCAD 2018 enables the creation of a hatch fill pattern in 2D shapes without having to separately run the Hatch, Hatch Line, or Hatch Fill. Set the new AutoHatch pattern from the AutoHatch Settings in the Options menu. And create changes for an existing objects from the AutoHatch Settings in the Info Box’s toolbar

NURB Curve Control enhancement

The new command places a cage control points around the curve for superb control over the curve’s geometry for 2D and 3D. It supports both cubic and quadratic rules.

UI and Usability Enhancement

Enhanced menu and dialog boxes scale to the Windows text scaling setting which includes improvements of Purged Unused Blocks command, Save As command and Info Box.

    There is a learning curve here. So, get the Reference Manuel out, and start using it .
    This is how I learned to use ithe product. Find something that you want to make a drawing of–it goes slow at first, and it is somewhat frustrating (this is why I didn’t give this product a 5 star), but like me eventually you should be able to produce the drawing and learn how to use the product.
    All in all, make notes on the exact coordinates that were plotted in your drawing. I’m thinking that if I discover a better choice of options available, I probably will be able to use the product more seemlessly and easilly. I did say earilier, I have to use the product in order to learn it.

    Finally in conclusion, this program did get the job done for me for a very reasonable price.
