CADDS 5 Drafting Foundation

CADDS 5 Drafting Foundation provides turnkey drawing production for CADDS 5 and can act as a baseline for other CADDS 5 options for users in the engineering and manufacturing environment who do not need to modify the actual design.

Based on the adaptable hybrid-modeling kernel of CADDS 5, this 3D CAD software supports a comprehensive range of 2D/3D explicit wire-frame modeling tools, plus extensive associative dimensioning and drafting functions for CADDS 5 parts and assemblies that have been created in other CADDS 5 packages.

The CADDS 5 Drafting Foundation package includes the following CAD design capabilities:

Includes the following plotter support, CGM to CalComp, HPGL1, HPGL2, PostScript, Benson, GPLOT, Versatec, and HP-RTL.

Users can generate high-quality drawings that conform to DoD, MILSTD, ANSI, ISO, and JIS standards to meet the most demanding international specifications.

CADDS 5 Drafting Foundation

2D/3D Wireframe Design
Users can use a number of techniques to create and modify explicit (i.e. non-parametric), 2D and 3D wireframe models using a variety of geometry types including NURB curves.

Dimensioning
Users can generate high-quality drawings that conform to DoD, MILSTD, ANSI, ISO, and JIS standards to meet the most demanding international specifications. With the capability to label objects from predefined templates, you can control label content and format to ensure components of a drawing are both consistently documented and updated with changes.

Nodal Construction
Intelligent entities with the CADDS 5 database enable the creation of intelligent symbols and connections that can be used to produce network diagrams.

View Part
Provides instancing/viewing (multiple references) of other CADDS 5 parts allowing them to be re-used within a current CADDS 5 part.

CADDS 5 - Parametric Multipart Design
Bottom-up or top-down single-user assembly design environment let you build lightweight hierarchical assemblies, minimizing the use of system resources and duplication of CADDS 5 parts.

Basic Shading

Provides simple view rendering capabilities:

View Model Space Clipping
Create a Clip box within 3D model space of views to visualize only those items within, or crossing, the defined model space clip box.

AEC Visualization
Enables users to produce detailed three dimensional, hidden-line-removed and shaded representations of CADDS 5 nodal figures (AEC entities).

Display Relationship
Traces the relationships between intelligent entities within a CADDS 5 part or drawing.

Electronic CADDS Maintenance Tools
Support the maintenance of legacy CADDS electrical and electronic part databases.
