VariCAD is a powerful computer program for 2D/3D CAD and mechanical engineering needs that features many powerful tools for 3D modeling and 2D drafting. It is fast, compact, easy to use, and provides everything necessary for mechanical design, 3D modeling, and 2D drafting. It provides support for parameters and geometric constraints, calculations, bills of materials, tools for shells, pipelines, crash tests, and more. The program includes mechanical part and symbol libraries, such as screws, nuts, bearings, springs and so much more.
VariCAD Viewer is a free viewer, convertor, and printing software working with 2D DWG, DXF, 3D STEP, and 3D/2D VariCAD file formats. VariCAD viewer allows you to convert DWG to DXF and vice-versa, convert STEP to 3D IGES or STL formats, print 2D DWG, DXF, or VariCAD formats, and use batch print or batch conversions. VariCAD viewer offers settings of 3D display methods (like light source or perspective). The 3D display can be also exported into a high-resolution bitmap file.
VariCAD offers many calculation modules, allows editing of DWG files without conversion, supports the ISO industrial product data exchange format, and more. It contains some modules for 2D drawing, 3D solid modeling, 3D parameters, Pipes, Support of 3D threads, and more. In addition, it also includes libraries of mechanical parts and 2D symbols, support of assemblies (including multi-level assemblies), support to import from and export to other CAD systems, and more.
