||While UC-Draw Ver.3 is a general-purpose CAD program, it is a 2D CAD software
dedicated to civil design featuring various options.
All functions required in drawing, such as generating diagrams, editing,
printer/plotter output, DXF, DWG input/output, SXF input/output, and so
forth are supported. As well as general-purpose CAD features, the civil
design CAD offers powerful functions such as reinforcing steel table generation,
worksheet table generation, a raster feature allowing raster/vector mixed
editing, generation of symbols and pillar section table/pillar shape diagrams,
a linear transformation feature, arbitrary RC structure bar arrangement,
and more. Collaborating with the bar arrangement products and the UC-1
design series, UC-Draw Ver.3 offers comprehensive support in civil design.
<CAD rubric tool included>
The UC-Draw supports all functions of the "CAD rubric tool" which allows drawing charts in red ink. Reading and drawing in red
ink in the "UC-Draw format", "SXF file", "DWG
file", "DXF file", and "JWC file" is allowed.
Also, existing rubric files can be read, and then edited and corrected.
The tool also supports an E-mail attachment and transmission feature, as
well as correcting, modifying, and saving the history of drawings.
- Effective drawing generation/flexible editing
"Option functions" allows creation of drawings by cutting and
pasting symbols (objects) and can read drawings automatically-generated
by "the bar arrangement products and the UC-1 design series products",
so allowing the addition/modification for flexible and effective generation
of structural drawings and bar arrangement.
- Exact sizes by the scale sheet available and layers supported
"UC-Draw" uses an "exact size coordinate system", but
laying out graphic forms in this coordinate system in a sheet of limited
space requires reduced scale.
"UC-Draw" provides reduced scale to the "exact size coordinate
system" which is called "scale sheet". By specifying multiple
scale sheets in one drawing, a drawing integrating multiple reduced scales
- Efficient use of the data
(SXF, DXF, DWG, JWC input/output, SIMA data input, clipboard output).
With its support of CAD data exchange standard SXF Ver. 2.0 files (level
2), as well as DXF, DWG file (R12J and R13J formats) input/output, exporting
diagrams to other general-purpose CAD programs, and vise versa, is feasible.
For the clipboard output, UC-Draw, metafile, and bitmap formats are supported.
This allows the obtaining of data from the clipboard and using it in other
- Bar arrangement command to ease layout creation
As a bar arrangement (projected diagram) function, the arrangement of multiple
reinforcing steels in one screen; a functional material interlocking feature
to create, edit, and manage manufacturing diagrams/reinforcing steel tables;
changing all reinforcing steel symbols at one go in the bar arrangement
drawing generated by design-CAD-integrated products is supported.
- Drawing commands specific to civil engineering
Specialized commands are available for simplified drawing of civil engineering-specific
"dimension lines", "extension lines", "clothoid
curves", "elevation lines", "omitted lines", "inclination
lines", "gradient marks" and so on.
- Measurement features
The calculation functionality required to generate quadrature diagrams
and the distance measurement of two points on a circular arc are supported.
- Diverse optional functions
"Table generation mode" for easy creation of tables. "Raster
mode" for importing bitmap data and creating raster symbols. "Reinforcing
steel table generation" for making and editing reinforcing steel tables.
"Parametric symbol" for the creation of graphic forms by entering
sizes. "Pillar section table generation feature" on entering
data such as observation points.
