CADdirect is designed for anyone who wants a fast and efficient CAD program with all the power and versatility of standard programs such as AutoCAD® by Autodesk®, Inc., or MicroStation® by Bentley Systems, Inc., at an affordable price. Using today’s advanced technology, CADdirect integrates the Microsoft® Windows® interface with a powerful CAD engine.

CADdirect_compatibility_3">CADdirect_compatibility_2">CADdirect_and_AutoCAD">CADdirect_compatibility_1">CADdirect_compatibility">CADdirect provides unparalleled compatibility with AutoCAD, using most of the same file formats including those for drawings (.dwg files), commands, linetypes, hatch patterns, and text styles. You can also use AutoCAD menu files and run Autodesk® AutoLISP® programs. If you have written your own ADS (Autodesk® AutoCAD Development System®) programs, simply recompile them to link with the CADdirect libraries. Many third-party ADS programs already support CADdirect. If you have a program that is not already supported, ask your software vendor to pro­vide an CADdirect-compatible version of the program.

CADdirect is more compatible with the AutoCAD program than any other CAD product, delivers additional tools with advanced CAD features, and has a seamless Microsoft® Windows integration. This powerful program provides a superb combina­tion of features for CAD users like architects, engineers, and designers.

CADdirect incorporates standard features found in other CAD programs, along with features and capabilities you won’t find anywhere else. Its multiple-document inter­face (MDI) lets you open and work with several drawings at the same time. You can easily copy drawing entities between drawings. In addition, the powerful Explorer lets you manage information and settings and quickly copy layers, linetypes, and other information between drawings.
