VariCAD

VariCAD 2022 is a 3D / 2D CAD software primarily intended for mechanical engineering design. The comprehensive CAD software enables designers to quickly create, evaluate and modify their models. The software is sold as one “fully loaded” package, with all the features and functions, for one very affordable price. VariCAD delivers an excellent performance-to-price ratio, making it one of the smartest options on the market today.

User Interface and System Environment

  • VariCAD’s Graphical User Interface (GUI) has been designed to allow fast and intuitive 3D/2D orientation. It has been carefully adapted and configured to reflect the thought process of a designer, so that ideas can be captured and communicated in a minimal number of steps. All commands were created with a focus on ease of use.
  • You can start by creating a 3D model and then use it to automatically create drawing files, or you can draw only in 2D. Designing in 3D is generally more “natural” because it closely represents actual parts and assemblies. The 3D approach is usually more intuitive than 2D editing. Models created in 3D are easily converted into conventional 2D documentation. VariCAD provides tools for 2D updates after changes to 3D models.

3D Modeling

  • VariCAD provides a library of basic 3D shapes (such as box, cylinder, cone, etc.), which are easily modified by editing their dimensions. Solids can also be created by profile rotation, extrusion or support. More complex tools include rotating blending between two profiles, snapping between a circle and a rectangle or between different profiles, and creating helical surfaces.
  • Solids can be added or subtracted, thus forming Boolean trees representing actual mechanical parts. Boolean operations have options of automatic trimming (so-called optional Boolean operations). Predefined operations such as drilling holes, face milling or groove milling are also available. Edges can be rounded or chamfered. VariCAD provides many possibilities of solid transformations or their editing. Also, you can easily edit Boolean trees – either by selecting solid parts from 3D, or selecting them from a list showing a structure.

Parameters and Geometric Constraints

  • Although you can conveniently transform solids or their parts, you can optionally define geometric constraints. Once defined, constraints allow you to “stick” an object at a specified location. Rather, you can remove degrees of freedom from constrained objects. If other objects are changed or transformed, a constrained object changes its position automatically. For example, if you limit a groove to the end of a shaft and the shaft length is changed, the groove remains at a constant distance from the end edge. Limits can be defined between elements of a solid, between entire solids or within a 2D profile creating a solid (for example, by extrusion).
  • Whenever you enter a dimension of a solid, a distance in a boundary or a dimension in a 2D profile used for solid creation, you can optionally use a parameter or even a mathematical expression containing parameters. By changing parameter values, you can change shapes or locations of solids.

3D Assemblies and Groups

VariCAD also provides tools for assembly support. If the link between part and assembly is defined, all changes made to the part file are reflected in the assembly file and vice versa. Linked copies of solids can also be defined (so-called identical solids). In such a case, editing one object causes all of its identical copies to be updated. Solid groups can also be defined, simplifying selection and visibility changes for multiple objects.

Crash Tests (Interferences)

One great feature of 3D modeling is component interference control. VariCAD can check 3D assemblies for possible collisions (overlapping volume) between components.

Calculations

VariCAD can calculate 2D cross-sectional area, surface area, volume, mass, center of gravity and moment of inertia. Also included are mechanical parts calculations – for standard parts used every day by mechanical designers. There are calculations of tension and compression springs, prestressed bolted connections, pins and parallel keys, splined shafts, bearings, beams under combined stress (bending and torsion), spur and bevel gearing geometry, and belt drives.

Surface Development (Sheet Metal Bending)

VariCAD can also create developed (unbent) surfaces from 3D solids or sheet metal parts. The XY coordinates of developed surfaces can be saved into a text file for further processing. You can enter flex coefficients to customize your calculations to reflect material and technology.

Mechanical Parts and Symbol Libraries VariCAD contains libraries of standard mechanical parts (ANSI, DIN), such as bolts, nuts, pins, plugs, plugs, gaskets, bearings, rolled and drawn shapes and hydraulic, pneumatic and electrical symbols.

3D – 2D Export

3D models are easily converted into 2D drawings to produce conventional drafting documentation. You can create 2D views of one or more selected solids by defining the views in 3D. In addition, you can also export specified sections. VariCAD supports updates of 2D drawing after changes in 3D.

2D Drawing and Editing

Design functions are optimized for easy use in engineering. Some handy 2D drawing features include: automatic detection of objects and snap points, many snap modes, auxiliary construction lines, Ortho mode, rectangular grid, drawing layers, block creation, hatching with automatic boundary detection, advanced dimensioning, end symbols, weld symbols, tolerance symbols, and many more. You can draw in millimeters or inches.

BOM and Title Blocks

VariCAD provides tools to maintain the data structure of the product. There are links between attributes of parts and content of title blocks. You can create a bill of lading (BOM) of a set, or easily modify the database with commands such as bulk attribute changes, sorting information, etc. Each part can contain attributes, such as name, type of material or supplier. Such data can be used for material requisitions, bill of material (BOM) creation, filling of title blocks or other purposes.

The product data structure (BOM) can be exported into other systems or into a spreadsheet. Mask is used for BOM customization; you can modify it exactly according to your needs. A mask defines usage of solid or assembly attributes, working with header blocks, BOM data export methods etc…

compatibility

VariCAD can exchange files with other CAD systems. You can export STEP (3D), STL (3D), IGES (3D), DWG (2D), DXF (2D) files, and import STEP (3D), DWG (2D), DXF (2D). The files can be converted individually or in batch routines, thus converting several files in one step.
