"Switching to 3D design capability is what many architects strive for but often without success. Apart from the high cost of a traditional 3D CAD solution, switching inevitably involves a change in user’s CAD environment," Gianni Rossi, Tecnobit.

ZwcadUSA, the exclusive distributor of ZWCAD in US and Canada; and Tecnobit Srl, makers of AddCAD for ZWCAD, today announced a partnership that sets a compelling price point for 3D Parametric Architecture Design solution. Integrated with ZWCAD, the AddCAD app instantly turns ZWCAD into a full-function 3D solution for architects and engineers and is now available in US and Canada as a bundled solution for about $1,500.
With its reliability hardened for over 20 years by more than 320,000 users in 80 countries, ZWCAD is a powerful DWG-based CAD design platform. ZWCAD is the AutoCAD Alternative that offers the closest AutoCAD user experience. AddCAD is a cleverly simple and quick-to-learn add-on app that enables architects and engineers to easily switch from 2D to full-function 3D parametric design without having switch their existing AutoCAD-like CAD environment. Both ZWCAD and AddCAD support Windows® 7 32- and 64-bit.
Kanti Purohit, CEO of ZwcadUSA, comments, “Our partnership with Tecnobit is great news for the AEC (Architecture, Engineering, and Construction) industry in North America. ZWCAD already offers 100% functionality for the 90% of mainstream AutoCAD users at one-fifth (1/5th) the price. Now, much like how the apps make Apple’s iPhone so powerful, AddCAD adds more power to ZWCAD - the already powerful CAD program - at a very compelling price.”
Purohit continues, “And, just as ZWCAD is an eminently affordable AutoCAD Alternative, AddCAD also offers much of the 3D Parametric Architecture design functionality of its respective high-priced counterparts but at much lower cost.”
Gianni Rossi, Tecnobit CEO, comments, "We are very excited with our partnership with ZwcadUSA who has long and deep expertise in the CAD business. We have had grand success with AddCAD in Europe; and now, architects and engineers in North America can also easily switch from 2D to 3D Parametric Design”
Rossi continues, “Switching to 3D design capability is what many architects and engineers strive for but often without success. Apart from the high cost of switching to a traditional 3D CAD solution, switching inevitably involves a complete change in user’s existing CAD environment and retraining. AddCAD, a CAD application with over 20 years of development, eliminates these impediments because it operates directly on existing ZWCAD. Therefore, users can continue to work with their familiar tools they use every day and without changing the way they work.”
Some of the key features of AddCAD for ZWCAD include:
- Rich catalog of parametric objects such walls, frames, windows, doors, stairs, railings, furniture, and roofing
- Window and door modeler, stair and roof generator
- Automatic creation of elevation and sectional views
- Creation of railings, balustrades ledges, and gutters
- 3D photo-realistic rendered view generator, including isometric, perspective, and cross sections
And, for power users, AddCAD offers a parametric library with a script language to describe objects. It is a powerful development environment that enables power users to personalize AddCAD to their needs.
