Drawing Express has been proved to be quicker and easier to learn than any other CAD system and this will allow the user to be up and running with the system and more productive with less time spent training. Drawings are created much more naturally as the user is working directly on a virtual sheet and with the combination of the commands being laid out in front of the user instead of in the traditional 'drop-down' menu format on the screen the user is creating their drawings very similarly to how they would with a pen and paper.
Drawing Express automated commands example
Drawing Express symbol examples
  • Automated Architectural commands including: cavity/solid/stud walls, doors, windows, (including bays), bi-folding doors, section walls, trusses & stairs are just a selection of commands offered to speed up your drawing creation.

  • Compatible with industry standard file exchange- DWG / DXF file format. Users can also create PDF copies of their drawings and be fully compliant with the Planning Portal to submit online drawing work. Online mapping services can also be used to import OS maps or survey data.

  • A comprehensive symbol library is included with the package which is always being added to, including hundreds of Jeld-Wen windows & doors. Users can also create and save their own custom symbols.

  • Images can be loaded onto drawings and used as part of a drawing sheet or even traced over if necessary. There is included functionality to digitize hand drawn drawings by tracing over a physical sheet of paper.
  • Drawing Express 3D example
  • Semi-automatic 3D model creation to allow you to visualize your drawings quickly and easily. Take your 2D drawing and create 3D walls, windows and doors with one click. Other automated commands help create gables, stairs and roofing.

  • Altering drawings can be done in a fraction of the time compared to a drawing board. Sheet size and drawing scales can be changed in seconds.

  • Full landscaping commands functionality from 'Landscape Express' including plant reports being created from the drawing.

  • Phantoms- even if you delete an item off your drawing and decide you need it back much later on, you can recall deleted items back onto the drawing.

  • Hatches and area fills are included with included custom created 'hatch-patterns'.
  • Often drawings created using a CAD package have a sterile look to them as the expression on the drawn lines is lost. Drawing Express utilises a few techniques to bring the user a solution to this. Lines are drawn with different 'pens' of varying thickness, emulating the way you would work on the drawing board. Also there is the option to 'doodle' the drawing, which modifies the lines to give them a 'hand-drawn' look which can be specifically tailored with cross corners, sketched or even broken lines. These are two of the many features users can utilise the convenience of a CAD solution without their draughting skills being lost on the look and feel of the end result.

  • We are always looking to improve Drawing Express and focus on customer led development as our user feedback is extremely important to move our updates in the right direction.
