GUANGZHOU, China--ZWSOFT, an innovative supplier of CAD solutions to the AEC and MCAD industries, has announced further cooperation with Open Design Alliance (ODA) – a non-profit organization that provides its members with a best-in-class engineering solutions development platform, so as to offer customers stronger compatibility combining both sides’ technologies.
Continuous Exploration on Data Processing Inspired by ODA
In ZWCAD 2017, the compatibility with mainstream CAD software and operating systems has simply become a standard configuration. By accessing the Teigha Platform provided by ODA, ZWCAD 2017 can open, edit and save any existing .dwg file without conversion or data loss.
ZWCAD highly values ODA’s strength in data exchange and compatibility, and technologies provided by ODA will be combined with ZWCAD’s endeavor to explore more cutting-edge fields like mobile products and cloud computing. ODA underpins what ZWCAD achieves.
Neil Peterson, President of ODA, commented, “Teigha is an industry standard used in thousands of professional engineering applications. It provides ZWCAD 2017 with reliable, high-quality access to .dwg data, as well as a powerful application development framework. We are very pleased to be working with ZWSOFT in this new capacity, and to see ZWCAD 2017 added to the growing list of Teigha-based engineering solutions.”
“We believe in simpler, smoother and more intuitive user experience and this is what we have been pursuing. DWG will continue to be the mainstream CAD format, so we offer users the latest DWG format compatibility together with a familiar interface and familiar commands, and none of this would be possible without our international technology provider,” said Daniel Huang, Product Manager of ZWCAD.
