LogiCursor makes concept to reality a snap
LogiCursor visually works with you in the design process.
LogiCursor Technology anticipates your move and shows you a suggested action to complete it. You draw faster and with more precision.
LogiCursor automatically identifies and snaps to locations of centers, endpoints, midpoints, tangents, and many more, as you draw! Labels for locations appear on the fly, allowing precision alignment in real time. The LogiCursor function can be toggled on or off at any time.
Customize LogiCursor to your drawing style by controlling sensitivity and snap filter options.
Easy Access to Pro Features
Simple Interface • Pro tools maximize productivity
Viewports provide a graphical user inteface to display the same drawing in multiple views. Each view may have a different orientation, which privides the ability to see an object simultaneously displayed, in an isometric, side, front, and top view

Over 26,000 Integrated Symbols
Not a limited time subscription
Drag & drop symbols including doors, windows, mechanical, electrical, fasteners, CMOS, HVAC, LAN, & more.
Easy, fast, feature-rich, without compromise of power for every type of project.
2D Automatic Features
Curve to Arc
Convert a spline, ellipse, or conic into a collection of arcs. Especially helpful when interfacing with CNC machines, which do not accept higher order curves. Two options: tangent continuous makes each arch tangent to its neighbor; keep preserves the original curve.
Rapidly trim multiple curves with a single mouse click. Click inside or outside to control which curves are kept or removed.
Automatic 2D Converter
Simple 3D to 2D conversion in one mouse click. Then create multiple 2D views with an additional mouse click!
2D Precision Tools for Faster Design
Tape Measure Tool
The tape measure tool identifies distance, distance components, and the angle relative to the work plane. The distance and angle values are displayed at the cursor for quick reference
Planar Area Properties
Professional feature for mechanical or architectural engineers needing precise 2D section properties
Transform objects using polar or linear arrays. Or use versatile tools to translate, scale, rotate, and mirror objects.
Walls automatically heal when positioned next to another walls. Quickly explore new wall configurations by draggin or precisely changing parameters that control lenght, angle, and thickness.
Doors & Window Features
Add intelligent wall features such as dorrs and windows with just a few mouse clicks. Or design a custom feature using the 'Inset Group into Wall' tool.
Let ViaCAD automatically add dimensions to your walls. Or selectively add key measurements to doors and windows using call outs and labels. Quickly identifying room regions using single click filling and hatching.

Associative Surface Modeling
Create Surfaces acciciative to defining curves. Stitch into solids to perform feature operations.
Calculate precise volumes, weights, interferences, centers of gravity, moments of inertia, and other critical data associated with parts.
3D Drawing & Editing Features
Local Face Editing
Provides tools to modify parts independent of previous construction history. Great for working with parts designed from other CAD systems such as AutoCAD, Pro/E, or SolidWorks.
Intelligent features allow you to edit parts using blending, chamfeing, holes, basses, shelling and bending tools.
Add & Remove Tool
Use Boolean tools to add, subtract, and intersect parts, generating complex parts from simple ones.
3D Modeling, Presentation & More
Instantly convert your ViaCAD Pro file to STL, for 3D prototype modeling, with a single mouse click
Generate section views through 3D models
Texture Library Includes 1500+ items
Drag & drop over 3000 included realistic textures such as woods, paints, flooring, fabrics, brick, stone, metal, and more. Apply textures by dragging and dropping onto the 3D object, Use filters to drop textures onto faces, bodiesm or similar materials.
3D Draw/Edit Features
Convert 2D profiles into 3D
Quickly lathe, extrude, sweep, and skin 2D profiles into 3D shapes
History Based Modeling
Use Concept Explorer to examine design history. Change parameters and watch the part update
Create constant and variable radius blends on complex models
Create a thinwalled object automatically
Twisting & Bending
Twist or bend parts and still mantain precision NURBS data
ViaCAD Pro supports high end surface trimming operations. Trim to projected text or curves on a surface. Keep, delete or move trim portions based on desing requirements.
Surface analysis tools in ViaCAD Pro provides feedback as to smoothness characteristics of the underlying NURB definitons. These tools include curvature and zebra plots. Curvature plot options include Gaussian, Mean, Minimum, Radius, and Maximum Radius. Zebra plots are specifically useful for examining surface continuity between adjacent surfaces.
Perform class A surface matching operation on neighboring surfaces with either G1 (tangent) G2 (curvature) continuity options
Skin With Guided Curves
Skin between blue profiles and use green guide curves to further refine and control shape of complex objects
ViaCAD Pro supports Boolean operations on open surfaces. Perform addition and subtraction operations to quickly merge or remove surface areas
The Tangent Cover creates an n-sided surface that is tangent continous to it's surrounding surfaces. The tool is useful for filling voids between surfaces and for capping objects
Offer surfaces maintan a constant distance normal to a referenced surface. ViaCAD Pro includes offsetting complex trimmed NURB surfaces.
Modifying a face using inflate or deflate terminology. Or move a portion of a face to a specific location using the face deformation tools of ViaCAD Pro
Bending Along Curve
The feature will bend a solid along an axis or along a curve. The along curve option will automatically stretch or compress the new shape to precisely flow along the path.
