CAD drawings help you organize information for greater efficiency. With Intelli­CAD, you can draw entities representing different types of information on various layers and use those layers to control color, linetype, and visibility. CADdirect also includes drawing aids that help you draw accurately.

   Create new drawings, open existing drawings, and save changes to drawings.
