The right tools for the job whatever it may be

The Tool palette offers a full complement of drawing tools including lines, rectangles, circles, arcs, polygons, curves, parallel line and freehand tools.

Parallel line and polygon tools make it easy to create exterior walls. Add interior walls with a mouse click using the parallel extrude tool. Some tools can be configured from the Tool Palette to provide several drawing options. For example, arcs can be drawn by their radius, any 3 points, or as an elliptical arc.

There are also special tools to create lines tangent, perpendicular, and parallel to edges. Alternatively, lines can automatically be drawn from the center of an object, as well as from the middle or end points of a line or edge of an object.

A fully scaled and layered environment

MacDraft offers it's users maximum control over their drawing setup, you can select from English or Metric units and work at your desired scale. Layers give you the ability to organize your drawings so that you have the power to hide or gray whole sections of your work, so for example you could have your floorplan on one layer and your electrical schematics on another, then you can choose to hide them or show them as required. Your layers can even have different scales in the same drawing!

A dimension tool for every occasion

Whether you need horizontal, vertical, diagonal, angular, perpendicular, radial or diameter dimensions, MacDraft's dimension palette is always on hand to provide them. With linked dimensioning to automatically update dimensions as you modify components. Dimension formats provide text position, tolerances, round off, witness lines, arrow position, and much more. You can also create linear dimensions in single, chained or baseline modes.

Pinpoint accurate object control

The Resize palette displays the size of an object, text, or picture. When you select an item, its unique measurement parameters are displayed. Using the keyboard, you can quickly and precisely edit any of the item's measurements to a new absolute value, or a new value relative to its current size; the item is resized instantly. The Resize palette can also be used to move objects or vertices to new absolute or relative positions.

Image Imports and Exports

MacDraft allows you to import images in the form of PICT, TIFF, GIF, JPEG and BMP. You can also export drawings as PDF, BMP, JPEG, PSD, PICT, PNG and TIFF, or any other Quicktime supported format for that matter.

My clients use AutoCAD on a PC can I open their files?

The scale and units can also be chosen or MacDraft can do it automatically if you are unsure.
