Introducing new user interface, Customer Corner, and improved 2D support in CAD Exchanger 3.11.0

  • New user interface — for visual and functional consistency
  • Customer Corner — for one-stop access to user’s licenses
  • 2D drawing export to DXF — for fuller 2D geometry support with CAD Exchanger SDK

New CAD Exchanger user interface

At the beginning of the year, we focused on working on the new interface of the CAD Exchanger. We’ve rearranged the toolbars and settings, optimized the notification algorithm, and improved the design.

Your Customer Corner

From now on, CAD Exchanger users can create their accounts at cadexchanger.com and get access to all their licenses. The first version of a Customer Corner provides you with the following functionality:

  • Overview of all your licenses
  • Installation packages download
  • Sharing of your licenses with your team (e.g., developers) via projects

2D drawing to DXF export in CAD Exchanger SDK

Intending to enable 2D drawing support, we have already added DWG reading to the scope of CAD Exchanger SDK. In version 3.11.0, we move forward by introducing the export of 2D data to DXF format. DXF, which stands for Drawing Interchange Format, is more compatible with third-party software and can be used to transfer 2D geometry to non-Autodesk CAD packages, CNC machines, or other 3D formats.

Miscellaneous

CAD Exchanger 3.11.0 also contains minor improvements to its reading, writing, and meshing tools.

So what do you do next?

If you are already a CAD Exchanger user, create an account in the Customer Corner and download CAD Exchanger 3.11.0. When signing up, please enter the email which was used for purchasing the license. Your project page will be automatically created with all the licenses linked to the indicated email address.
