Features and Benefits

DWG format compatibility
NewCAD uses the platform from the Open Design Alliance and IntelliCAD Technology Consortium for its Autodesk DWG™ format compatibility. NewCAD opens, edits, and saves any existing .dwg files saved in numerous versions without conversion or data loss. NewCAD provides industry-standard compatibility with the Autodesk AutoCAD software command set, that means you can get to work immediately using the .dwg files, commands, and applications you rely on.

Drawing productivity

NewCAD offers many productivity features to help you get the most from the time you spend creating drawings. You can organize items on layers, snap to items for precise positioning, work in model space and paper space depending on whether you’re drawing or printing, and create 2D or 3D models. Additionally, the NewCAD Explorer provides the unique ability to review and exchange layers, blocks, linetypes, dimension styles, and text styles between drawings with drag-and-drop ease. And thanks to NewCAD’s ActiveX integration, you can insert NewCAD drawings (or just parts of them) into Microsoft® Office application files for many cross-application uses.

NewCAD is a commercial grade CAD program that’s compatible with the DWG format and industry-standard applications without the hassle and high price of other industry-standard applications. NewCAD’s professional drawing capability and low price make it attractive and affordable to anyone who creates and uses .dwg files.
