Installable on Mac or Windows, this boxed version of CorelCAD 2015 Drafting Software by Corel provides an interface that is designed to be intuitive for users of other CAD software and features the ability to work with industry standard file types, including .DXF and .DWG. With a comprehensive toolset, CorelCAD includes 2D and 3D drafting and design tools, including support for extruding existing 2D designed into 3D geometries. 3D designs can be viewed interactively from any angle in the view ports and can be exported in various ways - including to 3D printers - as needed to suit project requirements. On Windows, it can run on 32- or 64-bit platforms and is able to take advantage of increased performance when used on 64-bit. CorelCAD is always 64-bit when run on a Mac.

What's New for 2015?

Updated: Windows Ribbon UI
Increase productivity with the customizable ribbon UI workspaces, and use the new contextual ribbon options to select and implement the various design tools you need, such as tables, in-place text editing, and more

Note: This feature is available for Windows only
Drawing Constraints
Add the precision you need by applying dimensional constraints to ensure your 2D designs meet your exact proportion, angle, and size requirements by forcing a geometric shape to perform in a specified way. In addition, you can use geometric constraints to control dependencies and relationships between your objects

Note: This feature is available for Windows only
Pop-Up Dimension Palette
Work more efficiently with dimensions using this on-screen drawing feature which quickly reveals the dimension palette for faster navigation and easier control of frequently used settings
2D Editing Tools
Explore the expanded editing tools, including the ExplodeBlockX tool to explode blocks while maintaining attribute values and the DiscardDuplicates tool to simplify geometry. Use the interactive trim path to precisely trim areas on screen, and select the QuickModify command to seamlessly move, rotate, and copy in one succinct move
Dynamic Blocks
Save time by inserting dynamic blocks from AutoCAD and then accessing the block settings and attributes for your own .DWG files in CorelCAD
Updated: In-Place Text Editing
Create or modify existing text with the ability to stack text and paste formatted text from Microsoft Word within your project. It's ideal for controlling the font, appearance, and location of text blocks
Updated: Editing for Tables
Insert, delete, merge, or resize cells, rows and columns within existing tables. It's the fastest way to include important text or instructions into any drawing while maintaining the linear flow
Migration Assistance
Transfer custom settings such as profiles, preferences, file locations, and UI customizations from a previous release of the software to this version. A dialog box opens automatically when you start CorelCAD 2015 the first time after installation

Additional Features

Native .DWG Files
Open, edit, and save files in .DWG format for simplified collaboration with colleagues and suppliers. As the native file format, CorelCAD offers .DWG, .DXF, and .DWF support up to AutoCAD 2015 (R2013 .DWG) file format versions
Industry-Standard CAD Features
CorelCAD's user interface is designed to provide a layout that is familiar to users of other CAD software, including the command bar, command aliases, and menu and toolbar items
Legacy File Format Support
Save drawings back to R12 .DWG or .DXF format to work with them on legacy hardware devices or using older software, and recover damaged .DWG and .DXF files in all format versions
Entity Snaps and Grips
Use CorelCAD smart tools, such as entity snaps, entity grips, and polar guides, to quickly reposition, align, copy, or resize entities
Properties Docker and Property Painter
Manipulate entity attributes, such as layer, color, line style, and more, with the Properties palette - or copy properties directly from other entities
Custom Coordinates
Make it easier to draw and align locations with the ability to create custom coordinate systems to align the construction plane to drawing objects
Design Resources
With the comprehensive Design Resources, users can instantly find, access, and manage design components like blocks, styles, drawings, and images, for use within and across a variety of CAD projects
Layer Tools
Work in a consistent manner with Layer Preview and Layer transparency features to align project elements, including drawing components from more recent versions of AutoCAD .DWG files
CAD File Standards Verification
CorelCAD 2015 can verify a CAD drawing against drawing standards such as those stored in .DWS files. This verification helps detect and repair industry-standard violations to ensure compliant CAD drawings
Smart Dimension Tools
Use dimension tools for accurate measurements, plus the Smart Dimension tool will suggest what it considers the most appropriate and precise dimension type automatically for Lines, PolyLine segments, Arcs, Circles, and Rings
Annotation and Collaboration
Use the VoiceNotes tool to add recorded messages, reminders, or instructions directly in your drawing. Mark up drawing items with freehand sketches. Mask portions of a drawing to exempt them from annotations
PDF Underlay Functionality
Attach one or more pages of a PDF document to your drawing and control the layer visibility and clipping (masking areas) of the PDF Underlay
DGN Underlay Functionality
DGN files originated from MicroStation or other CAD software can be inserted as DGN Underlay. You can attach, clip boundaries, layer, and detach underlays from current drawings
The group and ungroup options allow you to implement changes with only two clicks
3D Viewing Capabilities
View 3D models from multiple viewpoints or roll them in 3D space interactively. Use Tiled Viewports to split a drawing into multiple view tiles and set them to display your 3D model in different views
3D Modeling and Solid Editing Tools
Add 3D solid primitives to your design and use Boolean operations to unite, intersect, and subtract bodies. Use advanced editing tools like Filleting Edges of 3D Solids, and coloring, moving, rotating, and offsetting individual faces of 3D solids
Transition from 2D to 3D
Create your 2D design in CorelCAD or create 2D sketches in CorelDRAW. Import the sketch into CorelCAD and transform the 2D sketch to 3D. Extrude, revolve, or sweep 2D entities along a path to progress from 2D drafting into 3D modeling
3D Mouse Support
Navigate in 3D with support for 3Dconnexion input devices. Rotate 2D and 3D drawings by moving the cap of the 3D mouse. Assign preferred navigation settings or custom commands to buttons of the 3D mouse

Note: This feature is available for Windows only
Print 3D Designs
Export multiple 3D solid objects to .STL (stereolithography), a widely used file format for 3D prints. Print 3D prototypes using .STL support for direct connection to 3D printers or output to third-party 3D printing services
CorelDRAW File Import
Import CorelDRAW (.CDR) and Corel DESIGNER (.DES) files into CorelCAD as model space objects with a representation in a layout sheet. A direct way to import drafts from CorelDRAW for advanced 2D and 3D modeling in CorelCAD, you can work with multi-page .CDR/.DES files

Note: This feature is available for Windows only
CorelDRAW and Corel DESIGNER Export
Export to .CDR and .DES to easily re-purpose your work in CorelDRAW for presentations and marketing-related deliverables, or in Corel DESIGNER for technical documentation

Note: This feature is available for Windows only
