SmartMouse and a Different Ribbon Added to the Next Version of ZWCAD

ZWSOFT, a leading supplier of 2D and 3D CAD/CAM solutions to the AEC and MCAD industries, announced that the next version of ZWCAD will include a different ribbon interface and SmartMouse, which is the mouse gestures developed by ZWSOFT. These are just two of the many fundamentally new features in ZWCAD, which will provide users with a much more fluid user experience.

SmartMouse speeds up design process

The mouse gesture is a common and useful tool for web browsing, but have you ever imagined using it in CAD? SmartMouse, the mouse gestures developed by ZWSOFT, is a new feature in the upcoming version of ZWCAD. With SmartMouse, users just need to hold down the right mouse button, move the mouse on a certain track to trigger frequently used commands such as NEW, CIRCLE and MOVE, which will help speed up the design process. Moreover, users can customize commands for different mouse actions.

A different ribbon interface makes design work more productive

The next version of ZWCAD endeavors to bring a more user-friendly ribbon experience with the following features:

  • Navigate on the cleanest ribbon interface ever

A lot of CAD products have a down arrow to allow more buttons at the bottom of each ribbon panel, which increases clicks to reach those buttons hiding in the expanded area. In the next version of ZWCAD, the ribbon panel is designed to have JUST-ENOUGH buttons and let them all show on the panel, which brings simplicity to the whole interface.

  • Choose intuitively the right button with less effort

Button arrangement has always been tightly related to user experience, so ZWSOFT worked hard to figure out the most efficient button arrangement by conducting a survey. This survey asked CAD users from all over the world in the AEC and MCAD industries about their user experience and habits. The upcoming version of ZWCAD will let the user choose the right button with less effort.

  • Feel amazingly comfortable and relaxed with the style

The ribbon interface in the upcoming version of ZWCAD focuses on users having a more comfortable user experience than those already existing ribbons in other CAD software. When opening it, users will find the colors very cozy and the icons look flat instead of stereoscopic, which helps ease visual fatigue after working long hours.

The SmartMouse and ribbon interface is just the tip of the iceberg of many fundamentally new features in the next version of ZWCAD. Want to learn more about this product? Please stay tuned for more upcoming features.

Industry after industry is under siege as companies embrace digital transformation (DX) to disrupt existing business models and disintermediate their competitor’s customer relationships. But what do we mean by “Digital Transformation”? The coupling of granular, real-time data (e.g., smartphones, connected devices, smart appliances, wearables, mobile commerce, video surveillance) with modern technologies (e.g., cloud native apps, big data architectures, hyper-converged technologies, artificial intelligence, blockchain) to enhance products, processes, and business-decision making with customer, product and operational insights.
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda.

A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throughout enterprises of all sizes.
