Achieve professional-quality CAD design results without pulling your hair out. Our software includes a wide range of tools, so the right tool for the job is just a click away. ViaCAD has a 3D mesh modeling feature with subdivision technology to go from rough to smooth surfaces. You (and your clients) will be amazed at how photorealistic your finished designs will look.

  • Design complex organic shapes with NURB surface modeling tools.
  • Geometric and dimensional 2D constraints to manage geometric relationships between 2D shapes.
  • Push/pull modeling allows 3D surfaces to be modified with the mouse and cursor.
  • Powerful 3D editing tools, such as blending, chamfering, and peeling.
  • Architectural and carpentry tools, such as rabbet, miter, and dovetail joints.
  • Extensive 2D drawing tools such as text, dimensioning, 3D-to-2D drawing, bill of materials.
  • Multiple windows allow you to view and switch between 2, 3 or even 4 views of your design.
  • Built-in photorealistic rendering and support for Keyshot LiveLinking™.
  • And much more!


Accurate drafting is easy with ViaCAD! We designed it to be user-friendly and intuitive. The LogiCursor™ anticipates your next action and guides your cursor to possible point selections in the drawing. Gripper features drag-and-drop functionality for easy design editing. Customizable grids make everything even easier by allowing precise drag-and-drop in rectangular, polar (circular), and isometric layouts.


ViaCAD is a robust design documentation tool with over 20 customizable dimension styles, including standard dimension formats.

Other great features help you document and annotate your projects:

  • 26-dimensional styles
  • Import bitmaps for logos and reference images
  • Spell check adds another level of accuracy.
  • One-click filling and hatching

  • Precise geometry suitable for concept to manufacturing
  • Associative surface modeling

Checks for printability and displays warnings or errors to the user.

Bevel normals define the inside and outside areas of a part. If the facet normals are facing the wrong direction, the 3D printer may have problems creating the part. This checks for problems and we have several commands that can help you fix this.

This will help you visually inspect modeling areas that may need structural support for 3D printing. The normals of meshes, faces, and solid facets are compared to the direction of the working plane. Angles less than or equal to 45 degrees are highlighted in red.

This tool allows you to visually inspect modeling regions that may be too thin for 3D printing. Meshes, surfaces, and solid facets are examined using ray cuts.

This interface helps you slice models with a specific direction and thickness. The dialog box allows you to animate through the slices and single step. Use this feature to verify that a part has closed, non-overlapping sections, a requirement for 3D printing.

The Auto Position tool moves the model to the positive x, y coordinate system at z=0.

Manually adds geometry to the support material as it is created by the 3D printer. Support structure controls include "Attach Radius", "Center Radius", "Base Radius", "Base Thickness", and "Drag Base and Centers" to change the position of the structure.

Toggles the boundary of the default 3D printer. The volume is defined in the Printer Definitions dialog box.

Sets the major parameters of the 3D printer, including the length, width, and height of the volume that can be reached by the printer. The parameters in the Printer Definitions dialog box are used for commands such as 3D Print Check and Auto Position

New Features


This tool divides a mesh into two parts based on a cutting plane. Split Mesh is an ideal tool for those working with faceted data along with 3D print manufacturing processes.


This advancement provides a way to add or remove material from a mesh body. Previous versions only allowed boolean operations on ACIS-based solids. With the introduction of mesh boolean operations, you can now add/remove material imported from STL, OBJ, 3DS, and SketchUp.


With our new wrapping tool you can place text, company logos or complex 2D patterns on 3D surfaces. The results are perfect for printing, embossing or engraving.


This new visualization tool creates a soft shadow directly under a group of objects. It is an alternative to the standard photo rendering method of using a light shift at a specific distance.


Whether you are designing an airplane, a car, or a picnic table, weight is an important control parameter in design. V12 introduces a new BOM attribute specifically for creating a weight summary table.


Excellent for drawing accurate curves on rough sketches. Use this tool to best fit a line or circle from a sample of points.


The Angle Tolerance interface has been updated to dynamically provide data from the Inspector dialog box.


You now have the ability to save planes associated with view alignment.


This "right-click" feature saves you a lot of time by providing a list of the last drawing commands you used. Select an item from the list to quickly switch tools.
You can now work with the file types of these other programs:

  • PDF Import
  • Import from Adobe Illustrator
  • SketchUp 2020 import/export
  • Import/Export from Collada (DAE)
