Blender runs the Cycles path tracing engine under the hood. Cycles is a very powerful rendering engine capable of full path tracing (light fall off, caustics, volumetrics). It is mostly compatible with OpenCL and CUDA rendering, and is implementing mycropolygon displacement features. The upcoming release has a viewport engine called EEVEE whereby you can see and interact with your work in render mode in real time! See More

Annotative Objects:Annotative objects are useful to get different sizes of entities like text, hatch, dimensions , tolerances, blocks etc. in multiple viewports. You can define many annotative scales for these objects and call one of them in layout/viewport. This will ensure correct display of scales in viewports.
Import PDF to TrueCAD for direct editing:In TrueCAD, you can open any existing vector PDF file directly and edit the entities just like a normal CAD drawing. All you have to do is to select the PDF file and click OK. TrueCAD will convert the file to DXF at same location of original pdf and with same name.
TrueCAD supports many file formats: TrueCAD supports many file formats directly and through import and export options as shown in above image. All dwg & dxf files from R2 to latest 2021 version are supported.
Drawings Converter in Batch Mode:TrueCAD Drawings Converter works outside TrueCAD to convert a bunch of dwg/dxf/dgn files from one format to another. This converter support all file versions from R2 to 2021. This conversion process is much faster compared to above tool and offers many additional functions.See All Specs
