Best 2D CAD Software - nanoCAD Plus

nanoCAD Plus is a specialized grade 2D CAD Software equipped with Dynamic input, Tool palettes and advanced user interface for professional to work with ease. This is developed to deliver 2D design and drafting. It has a familiar interface, and by default it produces native DWG files; the user can create a DWG drawing and design according to their needs. It gives the benefits to construct and edit technical drawings. Moreover, it has the capability to use regular working methods and has the efficiency of higher processing speed that results in productivity with accuracy. nanocad Plus offers low-cost annual subscription, including updates and priority online support. You may download Specialised CAD (nanoCAD plus download) with unbeatable TCO in 32 bit and 64 bit versions with a prioritized technical support. But, for a more professional environment, nanoCAD Pro is the Best CAD Software to work with.

Dynamic Input

Dynamic Input delivers a command line interface at your crosshair. In thenanoCAD Architecture, dimensional objects users can display of dynamic dimensions and edits their values. It also offers for user entry to input like the length of a line or the radius of a circle.

Graphical User Interface

Tool palettes

Tool palettes provide in the 2D CAD Design Software has great prospects for fast and stress-free access to your favourite commands and blocks.

Graphical User Interface

Sheet sets

Form your own sheet sets in a method any designer has a preference for. This is the normal demonstration of an engineering documentation in this 2D Drafting CAD Software. You can control of hundreds of drawings and views from diverse drawing files from the single source. And even more, nanoCAD download frees you from tedious routine task with the auto numeration attribute.

Graphical User Interface

IFC files support

Due to IFC files underlay quality this 2D CAD Software, can load BIM models from any other software proficient to generate IFC files. Users can review model geometry and features. Special IFC explorer shows model tree and a list of features of selected object. You can dive deep into loaded BIM model to look for the data you requisite. Advanced nanoCAD Plus 3D navigation feature permits you to walk through the model.

Graphical User Interface

PDF to DWG Import

nanoCAD Plus lets user to import vector PDF file and convert it to .dwg file. User can edit and and modify using CAD tools and also it can be saved and exported in .dwg file.
Even all the layers in PDF file can be modified using nanoCAD

Graphical User Interface

Materials support with Materials Browser

The nanoCAD begin to support materials. Realized Material Browser (call it through MATERIALS command):

Graphical User Interface

Lighting support

New LIGHT objects. Now you can create own lighting object with one of these types: web light, spotlight, point light and distant light.

Graphical User Interface

External formats support

  • New improved PDF engine
  • Object Snap to vector and raster PDF-underlays
  • Inserting of PDF-underlays in the previous version of the nanoCAD. nanoCAD supports snap to underlay elements: vector snap for vectors and raster snap for raster elements
  • Convert PDF to vectors command
  • New PDF2DWG command converts objects of existing PDF underlay into vector
  • PDF Import (vectors arrive as vectors)
  • New PDFIMPORT command inserts PDF underlay as vectors into the drawing
  • DWF Import
  • New DWFIMPORT command inserts DWF underlay as vectors into the drawing
  • Clip for PDF and DWF underlays
  • CLIP command works with PDF and DWF underlays


Graphical User Interface

Increased Performance (new)

nanoCAD visual graphic system that is responsible for rendering 2D and 3D-graphics, has been updated to support the Microsoft DirectX 10 technology. This accelerates the processing time of drawings with large amount of text objects, hatches, blocks and other complex primitives, and reduces the size of memory used.

User Interface (new)

A new ribbon-style interface provides modern ways of interaction with application. Instant switch between classic and ribbon interface makes work very comfortable. The ribbon structure was initially designed taking into account the ergonomics of the designer, but it does not limit the user in the possibilities of customizing their workspaces. In addition, a powerful mechanism of managing the ribbon interface allows you to instantly switch between different pre-installed workspaces without restarting the program.

Graphical User Interface

Interactive Tools in a Drawing Area (new)

Semi-transparent interactive tools placed in a drawing working area designed to manage views and visual styles. The “Locator” element intents for convenient navigation in a three-dimensional space: rapid dynamic change of orthogonal, isometric, combined and free views. Its orange-dot marker shows current view orientation. The View Control element at the top left of drawing workspace changes named view and visual style of a viewport.

Graphical User Interface

New Drawing Objects and Commands (new)

  • In addition to its own leader objects, nanoCAD Plus can create and edit multileader objects, manage multileader styles.
  • Native DWG-tables creating and editing without conversion to nanoCAD-table is available. Managing DWG-table styles and conversion nanoCAD-table to DWG-table and vice versa.
  • 3D-polyline creation and editing.
  • A new Region command creates an object of a “region” type from 2D objects that form closed area.
  • The “Stretch” command use pre-selected vertices that makes working with the command more convenient.


Graphical User Interface

Third-party Formats Import  (new)

Now it is possible to import WMF and EMF formats, as well as DGN – 2D/3D-format used by the Bentley Systems MicroStation design program.
