With great software performance and more efficient design tools, GstarCAD 2018 offers brand new experience in both architectural and mechanical design!
New array options are available to create copies of objects arranged in RECTANGULAR, POLAR, or PATH pattern. The new array object is a whole (dynamic block). It can be dynamically adjusted by number of objects, spacing and other related parameters through Ribbon panel and Multifunctional Grips.
New CLIP command clips a block, external reference, image, viewport, and underlay (PDF or DGN) to a specified boundary. It can be used to replace XCLIP, IMAGECLIP, VPCLIP, PDFCLIP, DGNCLIP commands.
Converts one or a bunch of selected drawing files to another DWG version available. The newly generated file can overwrite the original file, and it can also be compressed into a self-extracting EXE file or a ZIP file to facilitate batch format conversion of the entire project drawing.
Creates a section object that acts as a cutting plane through 3D objects and saves the selected section plane as a 2D or 3D block. You can move the section object dynamically in a 3D model or in a surface area. You can use the active section to analysis model by moving the section object in the object. Create cross-sectional views that can be saved or reused.
Sets the display order of all the fill patterns to back position from all other objects.
Creates a new object of the same type and properties as selected object but with different geometric values.
Executes a command repetitively, avoiding press enter or space bar key.
Changes the property of the selected objects to ByLayer including color, linetype, lineweight, and materials.
Ribbon, command line and status bar enhancements provide better user design experience. Show or hide ribbon to increase work space are, type any command and visualize it at command line and select a bunch of drafting options from status bar.
The command preview provides you a quick feedback of the active command. It shows you exactly how the objects will look when the âTRIMâ, âEXTENDâ and âHATCHâ command is executed. As you make changes within the command, you can instantly preview the final result.
Improve 2D/3D drawing printing quality via Plot with transparency and Shade plot options. With Display plot styles option you can assign different plot style tables to each layout in your drawing.
A new snap option (Geometric Center) has been added to improve the snap center of any kind of polygonal object.
Automatically dimensions and counts the area of closed objects and export the result to a table in the drawing area.
Command allows you to customize and predefine the associated layer of command to streamline drafting workflow.
Quickly screate a viewport on layout space by specifying an area in the model space. And then calculate the viewport size according to the set ratio and locate the viewport in the layout space.
Command helps to specify attribute of blocks with incremental value, and to modify attribute value of blocks according to the sort method. This command can increase block attribute value that contains a number or letter.
