New level of design

  1. Multi-purpose CAD platform


    nanoCAD Plus includes a full suite of basic and advanced tools for creating industry-standard DWG-compatible CAD files. nanoCAD Plus user interface and design principles are fairly the same as in the most of DWG-based CAD software. Any professional can start to use nanoCAD Plus easily.
    Even more, nanoCAD Plus provides innovative, collaborative and customizable features and tools not available in other CAD software to enhance your efficiency.
    It is the tool to bring your design to the next level.

  1. DWG support

    nanoCAD Plus uses the industry-standard DWG (*.dwg) file format natively. Drawings created or edited in nanoCAD Plus can be used by almost any other popular CAD system without conversion or data loss.
    If you can't open a drawing from another CAD due to damage or you want to audit drawing for errors, or you need to reduce file size, nanoCAD Plus provides special tools for that. Be assured you will not lose document data due to software or hardware failures thanks to nanoCAD Plus auto saving and backup functions.

  1. Tools for efficient design

    nanoCAD Plus is fully loaded with tools for efficient design. These are just 3 of them:

    • Tool palettes offer great opportunities for quick and easy access to your favorite commands and blocks. Your favorite sets of blocks, hatches, and scripts are now just a click away.
    • Dynamic Input provides a command line interface at your crosshair. It also provides for user entry to input like the length of a line or the radius of a circle. Dynamic input is greatly simplifying the overall design process.
    • Sheet Sets are the usual representation of engineering documentation. You can control hundreds of drawings and views from different drawing files from the single source.

  1. Adjustable user interface

    nanoCAD Plus implements a very efficient, and easy to learn switchable ribbon or classic-style CAD user interface. It offers a command set and UI elements appearance that will be familiar and comfortable to users of many other compatible CAD applications.
    The drawing space, command line, and position of the menu items and icons on the toolbars are readily recognizable. It is possible to customize all UI components to create your own look and feel of the program. You can select special dark color settings which affect your eyes less over the long run.

  1. IFC and Point Clouds

    Due to the IFC files underlay feature, nanoCAD Plus can load BIM models from any other software capable of creating IFC files. Thus, you can review model geometry and attributes, dive deep into a loaded BIM model to search for the data you need.
    Even more, it is possible to load IFC files generated by different software, e.g. architectural model from Revit, construction from Tekla, MEP data from MagiCAD and check how a complex project looks.

    nanoCAD nanoCAD Plus can import point clouds, primarily 3D laser scanning data (LIDAR). It provides tools to analyze and process large point clouds, such as:

    • data visualization;
    • registration;
    • filtration;
    • segmentation;
    • classification;
    • calculations using raw data.

  1. Open API

    nanoCAD Plus comes with multilevel Application Programming Interface. It includes several API's, allowing anything from routine task automation to complex CAD application development. Developers can use COM, LISP, .NET or C++ to create software applications that run inside nanoCAD Plus.
    Nanosoft can also distribute your application, giving you the ability to reach a larger audience of users.
