Simplified Advanced 2-D Drawing and 3-D Modeling Workflows

CorelCAD 2018, the latest version of Corel's professional solution for 2-D drawing, 3-D modeling and 3-D printing, is available for Mac and Windows.

CorelCAD 2018 offers an advanced toolset and enhanced user interface designed to bring efficiency to any technical design workflow. Enriched 3-D editing and productivity tools, including new capabilities when working with tables and dynamic custom coordinate systems, enable new and longtime users to solve design challenges. Complete with .DWG file support, CorelCAD 2018 ensures compatibility with all major CAD programs.

"Technical designers choose CorelCAD because it delivers the robust and advanced capabilities they need without the high cost typically associated with professional CAD software," said Klaus Vossen, Senior Product Manager for Technical Graphics at Corel. "With CorelCAD 2018, we have focused on accelerating the CAD workflow with new features that are more natural and intuitive than ever."

CorelCAD 2018 delivers new design capabilities to speed up and simplify any 2-D design or 3-D modeling workflow:

  • 3-D solid editing: Save valuable design time with faster on-screen editing tools. The enhanced EntityGrips and Properties palette allow for 3-D editing and provide intuitive manipulation capabilities in 3-D that were previously only available in 2-D.
  • Advanced table tools: In tables, you can now add formulas to cells using arithmetic operators and the Sum, Average and Count functions. Use the new ExportTable command to export tables in a comma separated format (CSV) for import in Microsoft Excel or database applications.
  • Helix tool: Increase the shaping possibilities using the new Helix tool to create 2-D spirals and 3-D helixes. A time-saver for designers in architecture and engineering, the Helix tool makes it simple to create spiral staircases and manufacturing designs like springs, screws and bolts.
  • MultiLeader tool: Draw, edit and configure callouts with multiple leader lines. Add and remove leader lines to and from the MultiLeaders to make adjustments and edits as the drawing changes.
  • Dynamic Custom Coordinate System (CCS): Speed up and streamline any 3-D design workflow with a new dynamic and intuitive method for editing and adding elements to 3-D models.
  • File format support: Increase project sharing and ensure worry-free collaboration with the ability to read the AutoCAD R2018 .DWG file format.
  • Productivity enhancements: Streamline any workflow with the Copy command to quickly copy selected objects to the active layer instead of the source layer. Use the enhanced Paste command to paste content from the clipboard to the active layer instead of the source layer, or choose the Shift + Arrow keys to move selected entities with a specific increment.
  • Manage Block Attribute Properties and Settings: Use the new Block Attribute Manager to edit the Block Attribute properties and settings in Block (symbol) definitions in an intuitive UI.
  • Performance: Get a faster response time due to a newly optimized CAD engine, powered by ARES.

For the first time, CorelCAD 2018 will also be offered via subscription from the Mac App Store. Monthly subscriptions will be available.

In addition to the new CorelCAD 2018 for Windows and Mac, Corel is introducing its first-ever CorelCAD Mobile app for iOS and an updated CorelCAD Mobile app for Android. Available from the iOS App Store and Google Play, CorelCAD Mobile brings the power to design and annotate to mobile devices.
