CAD – New Geometry Creation Workflow
Enhanced CAD functionality allows you to utilize multiple creation methods from a single feature coupled with a selection manager that aids in the design process. Over 20 new CAD features in V31 makes it easy to get more done in less clicks.
CAD – Construction Geometry

V31 is loaded with more options that reduce cycle times and deliver better finishes. Choose from 5 dynamic cut patterns, including Morph Spiral which can reduce or eliminate direct link moves. Users can also utilize Offset-in, delivering an initial pass away from the finished wall.
