Basic 2D Computer Aided Design (CAD) program.

Overview

SimpleCAD is an easy, simple to learn 2D Computer Aided Design program (CAD) made to meet all of your basic design needs. SimpleCAD is more than just a vector paint program, because you can move, copy, edit, scale, rotate and offset objects.

Main functions of the application:

  • Basic draw items: including freehand lines, line, polyline, orthogonal line, tangent line, parallel line, rectangle, polygon, circle, arc (NOTE: native ellipse is not supported, only support ellipse created by polyline object). Text box, callout box, picture box (imported from image file), measure items.
  • Modify functions: move, erase, copy, mirror, offset, rotate, scale, stretch items' vertices, lengthen, trim, extend, break, chamfer, fillet and explode polyline, join, array, polar array.
  • Auto Snap point setting: Snap to grid, end points of objects, on entity, center of arc - line - circle, middle point of arc - line, intersections, snap to top, left, right, bottom edges of a circle, arc.
  • Multi layers: you could create new layer to draw more items. Layers could be shown, hidden independently.
  • Add image: You could add any image file (support file type: GIF, JPEG, PNG, BMP, PICT, TIFF) to display as an item inside the application. Image file could be shown in following modes: Stretch / Fit inside bound / Fit outside bound. The application also allows to drag-and-drop many image files directly from Finder (or press Cmd-V to paste image from current Clipboard) to current editing window to add them to the diagram.
  • Add items (block) to Block Template list: Right click on selected items then select "Add to template list" to save the block to template list so that you can reuse it later.
  • Customizable background: Background color, total size of the diagram could be changed during editing. Background color also can be set to transparent.
  • Open/Save to "*.AAD" file: AAD (*.aad) is the new file type created only for this application. Press "⌘S" to save current diagram to an AAD file so that you could load it later for editing.
  • Capture to clipboard: Press "⌘9" or click on Capture button to export current diagram image to clipboard, then you could paste that image to another application. Example: Open [Preview] application, press "⌘N" to paste above captured image to view or to save to an image file. Of course, you could paste that image to Excel, Word application too.

Funny, on the developer's website is written: "For USA Mac App Store customers, to get 150% re-fund, please do as following: - write your review with suggestion / evaluation in Mac App Store - send your "Paypal email address" to vu.tienthinh@yahoo.com" What is the business idea behind this? They pay for reviews? Is that the beauty of the Mac App Store, no demos but you get paid by the dev for writing a review?
