This is an AutoCAD DWG compatible CAD tool.
This CAD tool is compatible with the AutoCAD’s DWG files. This tool does not claim compatibility with the operations menu. Thus, this is not AutoCAD compatible in that sense. The drawings produced being compatible, they can migrate across different platforms; from ZWCAD to AutoCAD and back for example. This is a tool for drafting, modeling and drawing. There is a very lightweight version ZWCAD Touch that lets you view, comment and share DWG files via cloud storage on your mobile devices. There are a couple of other versions that are targeted to mechanical design and architectural design. There are users who have adopted this tool for quite sophisticated design work. The ZWCAD+ 2014 can open and write DWG/DWF 2013 and DWF files. ZWCAD+ 2014 can also write blocks to DWG 2013. This tool is able to recognize dynamic block with most frequently used parameters such as linear, rotation, flip, alignment, visibility and lookup. It will let you change the block appearance with either the parameter grid or the properties palette.

Customized applications for ZWCAD+ can be developed making the use of it simple with your own applications. You are able to save your drawings and customized configurations to third-party cloud services, like DropBox, Google Drive and others.
