Easy-to-use and Seamless DWG Compatibility
Built on your familiar ZWCAD with Seamless DWG compatibility.
Smart Annotation
Power Dimensioning input dialog
Power Dimension
Power Dimension makes dimensioning easier. It has abbreviated dialog boxes that control and expand showing only the variables that are relevant to manufacturing. It also displays integrate tolerance and fit information.
Create multiple dimensions with minimal input
Multiple Dimensions
You can create multiple dimensions with minimal input and properly space either ordinate, parallel or symmetric items.
Dialog showing options for dimension overlap correction
Detect dimension overlap and determine suitable distance
Overlapping dimensions can be automatically spaced. This feature determines the suitable distance from the object being dimensioned and will make your linear dimensions look neater and clearer.
Drawing showing design by using mechanical symbols
Quickly design using symbols
Mechanical symbols including: surface texture symbols, datum identifiers and targets together with taper, center hole and weld symbols greatly save your time and improve your design accuracy.
Intelligent Balloon and Bill of Materials (BOM)


Easily generate balloons and BOM
With ZWCAD Mechanical you can draw align and renumber balloons easily. It only takes one step to create a new BOM. Standard parts are automatically recognised and included on the BOM.
Associative Balloon and BOM
Every change to a balloon is updated on the BOM, ensuring that the data is always correct and up-to-date.

Intelligent Drawing Environment
ZWCAD Mechanical supports ISO, ANSI, DIN, JIS and GB drawing environments
Enterprise and international standards support
ZWCAD Mechanical supports: ISO, ANSI, DIN, JIS and GB drawing standards and provides an easy way to customize enterprise standards.
Dialogs showing layer management and layer mapping
Layer management and layer mapping
Entities such as borders, dimension, & symbol etc. are placed on the default layer with a preset colour and linetype. With layer mapping entities can be placed on a custom layer to match your company practices.
Drawings showing multiple borders and adaptive scales
Multiple borders and adaptive scaling
ZWCAD Mechanical supports multiple borders with different scales. The size of annotation objects can be changed according to the scale of border.
Drawing entities and editing dialog
Super Edit
Re-editing is made easy. Double click an object and then change the settings in the dialog box. Update will change the object automatically.
Mechanical Parts and Generator

Part Library
ZWCAD Part Library contains: screws, nuts, washers, pins, rivets, springs and bearings etc. You can save hours of work by taking parts directly from the library.
Create shafts and gears by inputting the geometric parameters
Gears and Shafts
You can create Gears and Shafts by entering their geometric parameters therefore speeding up the whole design process.
Extended Drawing Tools for Manufacturing
Dialog showing options for creating construction lines and circles
Construction lines
A total of 32 options to create construction lines and 7 options to create construction circles are available. Construction lines can be used as references to create other objects and make drafting easier.
Centerlines can be drawn to one single entity or multiple entities
Advanced Centerline
You can add a centerline to a circle or rectangle by simply selecting objects. Centerlines can be drawn to one single entity or multiple entities.
Reusable detailing tools dialog
Reusable detailing tools
You can generate a detail view with a few clicks. The view will update when a change is made to the associated geometry.
Create a variety of grooves quickly and accurately
Draw Grooves quickly and accurately
ZWCAD Mechanical offers a variety of construction features including: crack, groove, shaft and hole rect reliefs.
