Drawing with Precision. Canvas X comes loaded with tools and techniques that allow you to easily create scale drawings, floor plans, architectural designs, and other technical drawings with measured precision and placement. Snap objects into exact positions relative to each other, draw from the center points of objects, define the scale for scale drawings, systematically align objects, display size information as you work, and add dimension objects. Work with Vector and Raster Images. Canvas X's unique and integrated design environment makes it possible to work with and combine all graphical elements and apply high end effects to each in a single document. Thanks to the ability to work with both vector graphics and raster images with the same powerful enhancement tools, Canvas X users are able to create professional-looking outputs while preserving complete editing control of all graphical data.
Vector Object Versatility. Experience complete flexibility while working dynamically with vector objects. Canvas X's adaptable Sprite technology can be used to apply image and transparency effects without rendering, allowing you to continue to edit your graphics at any time. Do more with specialized technologies, such as gradient transparency tools, vector masks, opacity effects, channel masks, and much more. Communicate with CAD Files. Import native AutoCAD files, enjoy CAD-inspired dimensioning tools, and edit and manipulate CAD objects. Place a 2D view of a 3D object in your document, edit the view, adjust the orientation, rotation, zoom, and lighting. Work within Industry Standards. Create dimension objects that fully conform to existing industry and government standards, including: IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineer's) floating point standard and ANSI (American National Standards Institute) U.S. Product and industry standards.
