DoubleCAD™ XT PRO is a 2.5D CAD application with advanced features for outstanding drafting and detailing capability. DoubleCAD XT Pro understands and can import 3D files such as SketchUp, Rhino, and .DWG files to create 2D planar construction views to complete your working drawing documentation. It also includes powerful design tools for architectural and mechanical use.
DoubleCAD XT Pro is designed to minimize switching costs, and protect your intellectual property in existing drawings. You will be up to speed quickly, immediately benefitting from advances in productivity that will provide a quick return on investment (ROI).Affordable Innovations Enhance Productivity
Excellent .dwg support coupled with the ability to read and write nearly 30 file formats, means you will be able to protect and continue to profit from your existing drawings. Unlike IntelliCAD products, DoubleCAD XT Pro is not trying to be an AutoCAD® clone; rather it is designed as an AutoCAD LT® work-alike by providing a user interface similar to the AutoCAD classic interface. The menus, tools, command line, and other user interface elements will be familiar so that you may quickly move on to exploring our innovative advancements.
With the launch of v3 , it should be even more comfortable as many changes have been made to ensure the ESC key, Space Bar, and Enter key behave more consistently. This is so that the muscle memory of AutoCAD users, the reflexive commands so to speak, are consistent right from the start.
We've listened to professional designers and drafters, so DoubleCAD XT Pro goes beyond AutoCAD LT to provide more advanced drafting and detailing capabilities at an attractive and affordable price. DoubleCAD XT Pro is for anyone who performs drafting and detailing regularly who is dissatisfied with the cost, lack of innovation, and stagnation of leading 2D CAD applications.
DoubleCAD XT Pro also excels at parametric design with features such as parametric constraints, scripted parametric parts, architectural tools, and parametric AEC objects.
And now with v3 there is support for customization through Ruby scripting in addition to the Software Developers' Kit (SDK). The Pro version allows for all sorts of routines, features, or full-fledged vertical applications to be developed and added right to the user interface.
Whether you are starting a project with 2D design, or documenting a 3D model created in another application, DoubleCAD XT Pro streamlines workflows as a companion to many third-party applications.
| ||Explore the power of the DoubleCAD XT Pro drafting palette, used here on a mechanical design with a 3D solid model. Topics covered are: (a) creating sections; (b) display properties of the sections; (c) populating paper spaces with details; (d) adding smart dimensions; and (e) creating fragmental views. |
The video is in HD format (1280x720) and is 6 minutes long.
|This is part 1 of a Webcast also on the drafting palette (1)covering its basic features in use with a 3D solid model.|
It is in a smaller format, and is about 12 minutes long.
|This is part 2 of the above Webcast on the drafting palette (2). This second part demonstrates the feature when used with a surface model imported from SketchUp. It is an excellent continuation after the two above introductory video or Webcast.|
It is in a smaller format, and is about 5 minutes long.
| ||This example shows how easy it is to adjust the geometry of a control arm by changing variables. Notice how fast a design can be revised. Constraints provide great productivity compared to non-parametric CAD applications. |
The video is in HD format (1280x720) and is 3 minutes long.
|In this Webcast we look at different SketchUp to DoubleCAD workflowpossibilities. The model is explored first in SketchUp, then the same properties are shown in DoubleCAD. See how quickly you can begin the documentation process this way. |
