ViaCAD™ Pro is 2D/3D CAD software with the perfect blend of conceptual and production design tools. It delivers the flexibility of mesh-based modeling to help you go from idea to 3D concept. Additionally, ViaCAD™ Pro provides precision 3D solid modeling capabilities with the 2D tools to accurately document designs.
The power of ViaCAD's™ precision solid modeling and drafting toolsets make it perfect for designing objects and parts, manufacturing, and prototyping projects. The addition of mesh-based modeling coupled with subdivision technology makes it easy to create 3D conceptual drawings.
The PowerPack 3D printing tools includes a suite of 3D printing, verification and repair tools, plus new modeling tools to make your designs 3D printer ready. Example tools include an overall 3D print check, slice preview, overhang and wall thickness analysis, surface normals check along with a collection of tools to verify and repair mesh, curves, surfaces, and solids. PowerPack brings over 100 new tools to the existing functionality of ViaCAD™ Pro.
