GeoTools-CADPower V20 Released : ZWCAD Platform added!

Bengaluru, India


V20 starts with a lot of optimism and excitement as we announce ZWCAD platform support

We are extremely elated and excited to announce the successful completion of two decades of maintaining and growing our popular add-on products – GeoTools and CADPower.

Version 20 of GeoTools and CADPower is now released and available for download, and we want to make two key statements:

  • We are committed on the growth story of our products and will continue to add and improve our utilities
  • We are adding a new platform – ZWCAD from V20, in addition to the existing ones, AutoCAD and BricsCAD.

Way back in 2014, we were requested by ZWSOFT Corporation to consider porting our applications to the ZWCAD platform. We did try at that time and found too many missing Lisp functions and errors in execution. It was not worth out time and we did not proceed further.

Circa 2018 December, and we gave the platform a try again. Indeed, in the 5 years since 2014, the ZWCAD platform has improved, and we found the porting process nearly as painless as moving our products to BricsCAD in 2011.

So, here we are, offering our products on three platforms – AutoCAD, BricsCAD and ZWCAD. The choice is yours.

If we were to recommend the best platform for your CAD work, indeed it is BricsCAD. As BricsCAD distributor in India, we do not sell and will never sell ZWCAD, but, in as much as our products are concerned, we are happy to support ZWCAD for those users who are already using ZWCAD.

V20 of GeoTools & CADPower are now available for public download. The ZWCAD version also is available but not yet publicly on our site. We expect that to be in place in a week or two. If you wish to try it out right now, do let me know.

V20 of GeoTools & CADPower is compatible with AutoCAD 2020, the latest release and continues to maintain compatibility with all lower versions until 2012. It may work on AutoCAD versions lower than 2012 as well but that is not supported by us.

Strengthening some of the mini-verticals we have chosen with GeoTools, like the Mining, Geology, Civil, Rail and Transmission Tower Design tools continues to dominate our priorities and focus in GeoTools development. This will remain one of our thrust areas in the V20 life-cycle as well.

In CADPower, we will focus more on time-saver tools in the areas of quantity calculation, Excel data export / import, measurements and annotations. The focus is to get the most output from your engineering drawing.
