Punch! debuts ViaCAD 2D/3D

Punch! Software has released the first version of ViaCAD 2D/3D, available for both the Mac and Windows. A general-purpose design program, it allows users to create curves, NURBS surfaces and solid objects, as well as automatically draft 2D drawings based on 3D renderings. Parts are drawn from a library of 26,000 symbols, and extensive training aids are at hand. Among the 300 tools in ViaCAD are skins, covers and nets for NURBS, local face editing tools for foreign parts, and controls for mass properties and interference checking. A highlighted feature is the LogiCursor, which attempts simplify 3D by anticipating a user's moves. The Mac OS X software is a Universal Binary and costs $100.
