Encore ViaCAD 2D v9 overview

  • 1Description

Punch! ViaCAD 2D v9 for Mac from Encore is an electronically downloaded drafting and design application that features over 250 drawing tools. It is designed to suit a diverse range of 2D drawing applications, from simple sketches or jotting ideas to full-fledged, production-ready documents. It can import and export many third-party formats and can import 3D files for conversion to multiple 2D images. ViaCAD 2D for Mac is 64-bit-capable, meaning it can take advantage of the greater computational power later versions of OS X support. If used on a 32-bit-only version of OS X, the software will still run - defaulting to 32-bit for all operations.

Types of Drawings You Can Create:
  • Mechanical detail drawings
  • Scaled graphics for illustrations in presentations and documentation
  • Schematics: Electrical, Electronic, Piping, Flow charts, and more
  • DIY projects: Plans for home projects such as building workbenches and furniture
