VariCAD 2017-2.0 - May 15, 2017
New version of VariCAD 2017-2.0 supports 4K resolution, allows you to create and manage exploded views of assemblies and to create and edit 3D texts. Also, the new version supports creation and editing of list of materials, like steels, cast irons, aluminum alloys etc. The new version has rebuilt parts of 3D kernel, including input/output of STEP files. Thanks to this, some operations are faster and more reliable.

VariCAD 2017-1.0 - Nov, 28 2016
New version of VariCAD 2017-1 contains new possibilities of solid creation from multiple sketching planes, complex method of creation of item numbers and corresponding 2D leaders, improvements in BOM, new transient (temporary construction lines) in 2D drawing and 3D sketching, and rebuilt methods of 2D filleting, chamfering and corner creation. Version 2017 supports 3D input devices 3DConnexion (under Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10). There are also new methods of changes of 3D display.
VariCAD 2016-1.0 - March, 2016
New version of VariCAD 2016-1 contains new methods of solid creations, possibilities to create solids from multiple sections, and new methods of editing of existing solid elements. Creating a new solid or editing an existing solid, you see permanently the result of profiles sketching. If a solid is predefined as a basic volume like box, cylinder, cone …, you can modify shapes and dimensions by cursor movement. For solids created by profiles extrusions, rotations or lofting, you can define height or angle also by cursor dragging. Also, you can change profile together with the solid by 2D dragging or stretching. Other new features are available for solid insertions or define of new locations. There are new features in 2D like stretching, new options for dragging, arc and circle editing or hatch area boundary detection. New features are implemented for view changes. Check out our new videos of VariCAD 2016.
VariCAD 2015-3.03 - January 2016
New version of VariCAD 2015-3 brings improvements in input of 3D STEP and 2D DWG files, rebuilt volume calculation and few improvements in 3D kernel. Also, there is a new theme (interface appearance) available, more suitable for Windows 10.
VariCAD 2015-2.06 - August 2015
This version contains totally new approach to 3D graphic. Graphic is based on OpenGL 4.0 or 4.3. Consequently, rendering is 2.5x – 10x faster than in previous versions. File open and creation of graphic data is approximately 2x faster. New version automatically turns on anti-aliasing – 3D images look significantly better. Optionally, solids can be displayed as transparent. For enhanced rendering option, perspective projection can be managed better.
VariCAD 2015-1.09 - March 24, 2015
This version is available in all supported languages. Since version 2015-1.05, VariCAD automatically checks for updates. If you work in VariCAD and if your version is not up-to-date, related information appears at right side of menu bar.
VariCAD 2015-1.0 - Oct 20, 2014
This version contains new features in 3D assembly module, in working with BOM and solid attributes, contains new 3D features and improved interface of dialog panels with tables. Also, the new version supports working at two monitors. 3D kernel and 3D STEP input are slightly improved, too.
VariCAD 2014-2.0 - April 21,2014
This version contains new features in 3D location, in 2D location, new sweeping of 2D profiles along 3D path, significantly improved creation of pipes and wires, changes in geometrical constraints, support of output of multiple image formats and minor improvements in input of 3D STEP and 2D DWG formats.
VariCAD 2014-1.0 - November 14,2013
This version contains support of multi-threading, faster 3D graphic, faster 2D graphic, improved support of virtual printers (like print to pdf), changes in volume and mass calculations, printing of images from 3D and further improvements in input of STEP files.
VariCAD 2013-2.07 - June 30, 2013
This version contains support of multi-level assemblies, new features in geometrical constraints and further improvements in input of STEP files. Also, there are other minor changes in 3D kernel and in DWG/DXF input.
VariCAD 2013-1.03 - January 30, 2013
This version contains a possibility to open multiple new shape representations from STEP. It significantly reduces number of solids, previously refused to load. New version supports Autocad 2013 DWG/DXF formats, contains tools for working with open solids and open shells and has improved creation of 2D construction lines. Also, there are other minor changes in 3D kernel and in user interface.
