DoubleCAD™ XT PRO is a 2.5D CAD application with advanced features for outstanding drafting and detailing capability. DoubleCAD XT Pro understands and can import 3D files such as SketchUp, Rhino, and .DWG files to create 2D planar construction views to complete your working drawing documentation. It also includes powerful design tools for architectural and mechanical use.
DoubleCAD XT PRO is designed to minimise switching costs, and protect your intellectual property in existing drawings. You will be up to speed quickly, immediately benefitting from advances in productivity that will provide a quick return on investment (ROI).
Excellent .dwg support coupled with the ability to read and write nearly 30 file formats, means you will be able to protect and continue to profit from your existing drawings. Unlike IntelliCAD products, DoubleCAD XT Pro is not trying to be an AutoCAD® clone; rather it is designed as an AutoCAD LT® work-alike by providing a user interface similar to the AutoCAD classic interface. The menus, tools, command line, and other user interface elements will be familiar so that you may quickly move on to exploring our innovative advancements.
With the launch of v3 (see What's New in v3) it should be even more comfortable, as many changes have been made to ensure the ESC key, Space Bar, and Enter key behave more consistently. This is so that the muscle memory of AutoCAD users, the reflexive commands so to speak, are consistent right from the start.
We've listened to professional designers and drafters, so DoubleCAD XT PRO goes beyond AutoCAD LT to provide more advanced drafting and detailing capabilities at an attractive and affordable price. DoubleCAD XT PRO is for anyone who performs drafting and detailing regularly who is dissatisfied with the cost, lack of innovation, and stagnation of leading 2D CAD applications.
And now with version 3 there is support for customisation through the Software Developers’ Kit (SDK). The PRO version allows for all sorts of routines, features, or full-fledged vertical applications to be developed and added right to the user interface.
Whether you are starting a project with 2D design, or documenting a 3D model created in another application, DoubleCAD XT PRO streamlines workflows as a companion to many third-party applications.
