Get a better drawing documentation with the new table feature. You can create, export or edit a table conveniently.

Get a better drawing visualization with the new transparency feature. Apply transparency to gradient, hatch, or layer objects as never before.

With flatshot command you can create a 2D representation of all 3D objects based on current or different views.

Now you can make a symmetrical drawing by making the first half representation and the other one is displayed as you draw.

Comparing similar drawings geometry to see the details accurately, and insert it onto current workspace is possible with Graphic compare tool.

Now you can shape intersected objects in few steps. The outline innovative tool extracts all intersected objects as a polyline shape once per all.

Now you can trim, or break intersected objects with gap distance in four different methods with break object innovative tool.

Block Break innovative tool is able to wipeout or break an object that is overlapped by a reference block.

Now you can edit an xref within the current drawing. The objects that you select are temporarily extracted and made available for editing in the current drawing.

Improve your drawing with enhanced features. Now wipeout command supports circle and complex polyline options to be used as a wipeout object.

With the enhanced mirror command you can select a mirror line option as axis reference, so you can get a set of mirrored objects quickly.

A new visual enhancement for two object snap options are available on status bar when you select Distance from Endpoint and Divide Segments options.


New Dynamic Input

New Dynamic Input

The new dynamic input displays all options of a command and could select them in different methods. Users no longer need the command line either floated or docked, gaining more workspace to get wider viewing of the drawing.


DGN File Format

DGN File Format

Full DGN files and related commands such as DGNIMPORT, DGNATTACH, DGNADJUST, DGNMAPING, etc. are supported. Now you can import and attach as underlay a Microstation native format.


Multifunctional Grip

Multifunctional Grip

Polyline objects support multifunctional options. The available functions (Stretch, Add Vertex, and Convert to Arc) can be seen by hovering over a grip.


Object Snap Options

Object Snap Options

‘Distance from Endpoint’ and ‘Divide Segments’ options are added in Object Snap tab in Drafting Settings, the ability to snap points at certain distance more accurate has been improved, so you don’t need to waste time on useless object length calculation.


Invert Fillet

Invert Fillet

Invert Fillet has a very wide range of usage particularly in construction and furniture industry. The FILLET command now offers a new option called Invert. You can create a reverse fillet by this option.


Layout Space Switching

Layout Space Switching

GstarCAD 2016 focuses on layout space switching optimization, which reduces time considerably. Especially when switching layouts over twice is even much faster than before.


Objects Visualization

Objects Visualization

GstarCAD 2016 enhances object’s visualization and the ability to snap points over these objects more accurate than previous version. Now when performing zoom in or zoom out, over circle(s) or arc(s), you can get a better object visualization.
