nanoCAD Platform is a CAD solution fully compatible with professional-grade
& industry’s standard DWG support.
nanoCAD’s operating principles are designed to look and feel just like other well-known CAD systems. This means that any experienced designer can master nanoCAD instantly. Drawing spaces, command lines, positions of menu items, and icons are recognizable, so there is nearly no need for retraining. You can switch back and forth between the modern ribbon and classic CAD user interfaces instantly. nanoCAD’s visual interface editor customizes almost every aspect of nanoCAD. Settings can be copied from one workstation to another.
Dynamic input helps you set dimensions and sizes of drawing elements, without needing to access the command line. It’s heads-up drafting with pointer input, dimension input, and dynamic prompts. Dynamic input is available for creating and editing objects, which greatly simplifies working with drawings.
nanoCAD can import IFC files into a DWG document. It is possible to perform numerous operations on imported BIM objects, such as to compile reports on models created in BIM-systems. Add to this an updated tools for 3D navigation in parallel and perspective projection, adaptive zoom, camera and observer head rotation, accelerated performance in saturated 3D models - and you will get a universal IFC-viewer based on DWG and BIM-models.
Tool palettes give you fast, easy access to your most-used commands and blocks. Organizations can define their own sets of standard blocks, hatches, and scripts and then load them on all workstations to access them with a single click.
nanoCAD allows you to find differences between two similar-looking drawings in model space. It detects objects that have been modified, added, or removed from drawings being compared.
nanoCAD’s table editor blows away the competition with its powerful set of database-like capabilities, along with tables that embed macros and formulas in cells.
nanoCAD imports point clouds into drawings from laser scanners like TerraSolid (bin), ASPRS (las), and Leica (ptx and pts), as well as generic point cloud files (pcd). The Import dialog box is powerful enough to import only the regions of clouds you need. You can create and modify clouds with sections and clips, and tune visualization parameters, such as color by elevation.
nanoCAD contains all tools necessary for design:
With the Locator tool, you interactively rotate the view of a model while holding down the Alt key, and then select any point on the locator circle, or choose one of the four marked points to rotate a view by 90◦.The arrow points to the new view rotation position.
nanoCAD’s scripting engine allows everyday users to automate routine tasks. You can write macros using Visual Basic Script, Java Script, and other scripting languages supported by Microsoft Windows as well as use the built-in LISP interpreter.
The new Transparency command toggles the transparency of background pixels in raster images. Access this new command through the ribbon’s Visualization group, the Raster menu, or the Raster toolbar.
nanoCAD lets you set up multiple plot areas and plot multi-page sets, which is useful for printing large drawings on small-format printers. The Batch Plot command creates and prints drawing sets without requiring you to babysit the printing process.
nanoCAD now moves forwards and backwards through isolated and unisolated objects, affecting the standard Undo/Redo mechanism.
nanoCAD improves the External References panel so that external references can be loaded and unloaded, be bound to the current drawing, and to report updates made to xref’ed files – all without needing to reload the current drawing. The redesigned panel also completely removes external references that had been inserted in the current drawing, along with all their associated data..
nanoCAD’s object grouping tool has been reworked. Its functions are added to the context menu (right-click in the drawing), shown as individual commands in the ribbon’s Group section (found in the Main tab), and to the Group toolbar.
nanoCAD now draws arcs (including elliptical ones) in the direction that the cursor moves. Circles can be drawn tangent to three other objects. Ellipses and closed polylines can be broken by picking two points. Open objects can be lengthened in both directions. Spline fit points can now be edited by holding down the Ctrl key.
nanoCAD can change the position of base points in block definitions. The base point corresponds to the location of grips at the insertion points of block references.
