DataCAD is a professional-level AEC CADD program for architectural design, photo-realistic rendering, animation, and construction document creation. Developed by architects and software engineers for architecture, DataCAD includes tools that make design and drafting easier, such as automated walls, doors, and windows, associative dimensioning, and Teigha-based DXF/DWG translators. DataCAD is listed as the second most-widely used software by registered architects according to the most recent American Institute of Architects (AIA) firm survey. DataCAD includes new 'smart' walls, doors, and windows, SketchUp translators, dynamic snap indicator, 3D Boolean operations, MText, SHX font support, entity properties editors, rendering enhancements, and new symbol tools.
