ViaCAD Pro History

New in ViaCAD Pro v12 (May 2020)

Mesh Booleans
With mesh booleans, you can now add/remove 3D geometry imported from e.g a scan in STL, OBJ, 3DS, and SketchUp file format to your solid geometry. Highlights of the Mesh Boolean Command: Add Material, Subtract Material and Intersect Material

Wrap (Imprint, Emboss, Engrave)
The new Wrap tool maps text or planar surfaces onto a 3D solid model. The results are perfect for imprinting, embossing, or engraving 2D shapes onto 3D surfaces i.e.

Save Layers with View
The Save Layers with View tool tool now includes an option to save layers associated with view orientations. Save View, Use the View and Restore View.

Import PDF & AI (Adobe Illustrator)
Importing PDF and Adobe Illustrator files is now possible using the File Import tools. Support for reading native .AI files that are based on PDF.

Spotlight PhotoRender
This new visualization tool creates a soft shadow directly under a group of objects. This is an alternate to the default PhotoRendering method that uses a distant light offset.

Angular Tolerance Updates
The Angular Tolerance interface has been updated to dynamically provide input from the Inspector dialog box.

Show/Hide Face
It is now possible to hide a single surface of a closed solid so that you can better understand the construction of a 3D model.

Split Mesh
This tool will divide a mesh into two portions based on a cutting plane.Split Mesh is an ideal tool for those working with faceted data along with 3D printing manufacturing processes.

New & Improved Import / Export

  • Collada DAE
  • SketchUp 2019 SKP

Weight and Volume Tables
Whether you’re designing an aircraft, automobile, or picnic table, tracking the weight of materials is a key control parameter in design. V12 introduces a new Bill of Material (BOM) attribute specific for creating a summed weight table.

New in ViaCAD Pro v11 (November 2018)
