The most valuable alternative CAD
GstarCAD 2021 optimizes 3D functionalities by adding a series of new commands. Other new features like Rapid Dist, Import/Export custom settings, and point cloud greatly improve user’s efficiency to obtain dimensional data, transfer user settings, and import point cloud data.
Plus, the significant improvements of the tool palette and Mtext editor will lighten workload tasks and the design process.
Import, Export and Migrate User Custom Settings
GstarCAD 2021 supports importing and exporting user custom settings. Therefore, your preferred custom settings like user profiles, CUI, line type, hatches, etc., can easily migrate from earlier versions to GstarCAD 2021. In addition, users can also import customized Tool Palettes from AutoCAD.
GstarCAD 2021 adds a series of 3D commands, such as POLYSOLID, CONVTOMESH, CONVTOSOLID, CONVTOSURFACE, CONVTONURBS, PLANESURF, SURFOFFSET.
You can use the POLYSOLID command to create a 3D solid in a shape of a wall directly or by selecting existing polylines. A poly solid is drawn the same way as a polyline, created with continuous straight and curved segments.
You can use the SURFOFFSET command to create a parallel surface at a specified distance from the original surface.
You can use the PLANESURF command to create a planar surface by selecting closed objects or specifying the opposite corners of a rectangular surface.
You can use the CONVTONURBS command to convert solids and procedural surfaces to NURBS surfaces.
And you can convert meshes to NURBS after converting them to solid or surface by CONVTOSOLID or CONVTOSURFACE command. Furthermore, this version also adds a series of functionalities to show/hide, add, remove NURBS.
3D objects like solids, closed polylines, regions, 3D faces, 3D surfaces, polygon meshes all can be converted to mesh objects. And the objects will be smoothed at the same time of conversion.
You can use the CONVTOSOLID command to convert eligible objects like 3D meshes, surfaces, closed polylines, and circles into 3D solids.
You can use the CONVTOSURFACE command to convert eligible objects into 3D surfaces.
GstarCAD 2021 supports two formats of point cloud file extensions (.rcp and .rcs) as an attachment in a drawing. In addition, users can apply object color and RGB scan colors to display point cloud data.
GstarCAD 2021 now supports a new RAPID DIST command, which measures distance and angle between 2D objects along the X, Y-axis rapidly by moving your mouse.
In GstarCAD 2021, Users can hatch objects with hatch patterns from Tool Palettes on any scale by clicking and move the mouse on objects. Furthermore, users can easily modify the properties of the hatch patterns as well.
In GstarCAD 2021, Mtext Editor supports Numbering, Superscript, Subscript, Combining Paragraphs, Matching Text format, and Adding Deletelines to selected text.
GstarCAD 2021 has greatly improved effectiveness and user experience with new features and significant improvements, one of which is the high-quality display of raster images.
We can see how GstarCAD 2021 has better raster image display performance than the previous 2020 version below. In GstarCAD 2021, the raster image looks more precise and detailed with better brightness and visual contrast.
