Top Reasons to Upgrade to CorelCAD 2020

1)    Save quality time

Increase productivity with the New Data Extraction Wizard that lets you specify a set of object attributes and/or block attributes and extract that information. You can display the result in a table on the drawing, or save it in an external file that you can exchange with your colleagues. Extracting the metadata into a table-type sheet helps automating the creation of BOMs, parts catalogs, order lists, and more. This amazing feature eliminates the need to manually count quantities of specific parts, verify completeness of BOM, as well as many other manual tasks.

2)    Experience a more intuitive 2D drafting workflow

Significant enhancements have been made to many of the most widely used 2D drafting tools in CorelCAD 2020 to improve your overall working experience. In addition to the new and intuitive Lasso Selection Tool, we’ve fine-tuned many user-favorite tools, including hatch, dimension, rotate, and copy, to be more intuitive, ensuring a more accelerated workflow.

 3)    Do more with advancements in 3D modeling tools

Several new options and commands have been added to CorelCAD 2020 for your 3D modeling needs. Notably, the Sweep tool now provides a new Bank option to create advanced 3D shapes that rotate along the specified sweep path. Other new options include OffsetEdges and ConvertEdges commands to easily create 2D and wireframe objects from edges of 3D solids.

4)    Maximize productivity with enhanced PDF output

Considering PDF is one of the most commonly used file formats for publishing CAD for viewing, enhancing PDF output was a must for CorelCAD 2020. Now, you can create layers in the PDF file that reflect the drawing layers in the file. Furthermore, you can improve project efficiency by harnessing the ability to batch print multiple drawing files into one single PDF for sharing and distributing all project files in one.

5)    Improved Custom Blocks

Custom blocks, which were introduced into 2019, proved to be hit! Building off that success, CorelCAD 2020 offers new and enhanced actions and triggers along with a new Save option for custom blocks to streamline the sharing of these handy drawing components. Plus, with the new Test mode you can enjoy a dramatically more effective custom block experience.

 BONUS!: Optimized UI and Tools

Several other amazing optimizations for CorelCAD 2020 include:

  • Save current workspace option
  • New predefined layer filters in the Layer palette
  • Reload references option in the status bar
  • New shortcuts
  • New settings in the Options dialog box
  • Enhanced parametric drawing tools (Constraints)
  • Field tool enhancements

…and so much more!
