Encore ViaCAD 2D/3D v9 overview

  • 1Description

Punch! ViaCAD 2D/3D v9 for Mac from Encore is an electronically downloaded 3D design and modeling tool that is able to import and export many third-party formats, in particular AutoCAD. The software can be used for a wide range of applications, including product design, architectural visualizations, modeling and prototyping for 3D printers, 3D object creation for game development, and more. It also features over 250 2D drawing tools - the same tools found in ViaCAD 2D. ViaCAD 2D/3D 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 Projects You Can Create:
  • 3D models for prototyping with 3D printers
  • Mechanical parts
  • DIY projects: 3D models of furniture and work benches
  • Architectural drawings for drafting documents, room layouts, and 3D visualization
  • Educational: Drawings and 3D models for science fairs
  • Objects for use in game development studios

Intelligent Drawing Tools

The LogiCursor aids in precise drawing using your mouse by aligning your cursor with existing points in your drawing
The Gripper tool provides click and drag style editing for moving, copying, scaling, and rotating parts of the drawing, even faces
Push/Pull Modeling delivers intuitive editing of your 3D models, allowing 3D surfaces to be edited with your mouse and cursor
Customizable Grids can be configured as rectangular, polar (circular), and even isometric
26,000 symbols are included to speed up your designing

Solid Modeling

A link between 2D and 3D variants means you can edit 2D profiles used to create 3D objects and the 3D shape will automatically update
Feature-based History Tree for editing
3D editing tools, including blending, chamfering, and shelling
A complete design tool with extrusions, Booleans, and surface modeling for more complex smooth surfaces
Precise geometry suitable for "concept-to-manufacturing"
The ability to create a 3D object from 2D shapes

Over 250 2D Drawing and Editing Tools

    Each drawing tool has multiple options for creating objects in your designs. Tools such as rectangular and polar (circular) arrays help you create more precise and complicated patterns. A complete toolkit of trimming options is available to help you make modifications. These tools include:
