Precision Digital Models
Use ViaCAD™ Pro as your foundation to create precise 3D digital prototypes suitable for concept-to-manufacturing solutions. Explore and develop new product concepts using a variety of modeling methods including tools unique to ViaCAD Pro for complex shape design.
Whether you’re designing furniture, jewelry, consumer products, or mechanical parts, ViaCAD Pro provides an environment that lets you focus on the design and not the software. The innovative user interface allows you to work freely in 3D with the intuitive snaps and intelligent work planes. Combined with the innovative tool prompts, hints, and online help, even the novice designer can quickly get up to speed with ViaCAD Pro.
Versatile, Intelligent Modeling Methods
ViaCAD Pro supports an integrated collection of 2D, 3D, surface, and solid modeling tools. You choose the tools or combination of tools you need for the task at hand. The different construction methods work together with transparent associativity and a history tree to provide rapid design modifications. Or use our local face modeling tools to modify parts imported from other CAD applications.

ViaCAD Pro includes a strong foundation of basic surface and solid modeling tools. For complex shape design, ViaCAD Pro extends the tool set to include:
Share Data with Other Solutions
ViaCAD Pro shares data with AutoCAD™ and Adobe Illustrator™. ViaCAD Pro uses a precise kernel that shares data using SAT, IGES, STEP, and DXF/DWG. For facet based systems, ViaCAD Pro exports to OBJ, STL, and VRML formats.
Powerful Tools for 2D Architectural Design
Quickly create intelligent walls that automatically heal when positioned next to other walls. Explore new wall configurations by dragging or precisely changing parameters that control length, angle, and thickness. Add custom wall styles for detailed wall components or drag intelligent doors or windows onto walls.
