In the flooded CAD market, users are on look-out for unique design softwares with the best price-performance ratio. They need a powerful AutoCAD alternative with a relatively low price but also solid functionalities, such as powerful drafting tools, user-friendly interfaces and file sharing properties to satisfy the user’s everyday design needs.
Aiding to the customers’ desired expectation is ZWSOFT, a CAD/CAM solutions company. Working under the leadership of Truman Du, CEO, the company’s vision is to provide cost-effective design-through-manufacturing solutions to help companies speedup time-to-market, increase profitability, and gain a sustainable-competitive advantage. “Our goal is to provide our customers a more integrated CAD solution starting from basic CAD design platform to 3D design environment, from general design tool to more specific and professional industry solutions, from desktop software to mobile design solution,” says Du.
ZWSOFT has established a sustainable and mutually beneficial industry ecosystem through its two flagship products, ZW3D and ZWCAD+, whose functional capabilities ease designers’ workload at a reasonable price. While ZW3D, an integrated CAD/CAM solution designed for the complete product development process, features the fastest kernel for Solid-surface Hybrid Modeling, non-solid mold parting and smart CNC Machining tactics from 2 axis to 5 axis. At present, ZWSOFT has developed industrial applications such as ZWCAD Mechanical and ZWCAD Architecture to further address the needs for professional CAD. This software not only has intelligent drafting tools and standard-based parts for manufacturing design to increase productivity, it also packs content libraries and tools designed for mechanical and architectural drawings.
“Among all the products, ZWCAD+ is the backbone to differentiate our company from competitors,” says Du. ZWCAD+ platform ensures excellent .dwg support, better memory control, and code-level API compatibility. Its latest version, ZWCAD+ 2014 has arrived with additional features like Dynamic Blocks, SmartVoice and a built-in cloud collaboration module called Syble, making ZWCAD+ a better, faster, and more accurate CAD solution. “Among all the low cost CAD software, only ZWCAD+ can open and edit drawings that are over 100 MB,” notes Du.
For the past 15 years, ZWSOFT has won over 320,000 customers all over the world by meeting the needs of drafters across the 2D and 3D design industries including AEC (architecture, engineering, and construction), mechanics, manufactures, electronics, real estate and aviation. Today, the company has staff of around 400, supported by an international network of highly skilled and strategic partners, distributors, and resellers.
Highlighting a case study, Deltamarin, a naval architecture and engineering firm was facing design complexity for shipbuilding projects and was in need of fully functional CAD software that would help shorten their development cycle, at a competitive price. They chose ZWSOFT’s ZWCAD+ software which provided them a wealth of advanced tools and functionalities, enabling them to simplify their design work and speed up project delivery. The company’s other clientele include majors like Lufthansa, Colliers International, Manga, Sanska, BMA and Gerdau.
