ZWCAD is emerging as an increasing popular CAD solution for U.S. manufacturers of steel structures. More and more, it's being used by industry leaders to spec, design, detail, communicate, and install mezzanine systems, machinery platforms, towers, catwalks, handling and storage equipment, lifts, loading docks, protective guards, and more.
We connected with these players to report on the top reasons behind these decisions:

Recently, many facility managers at schools have told us that their present CAD systems are no longer available to them at academic prices. Unfortunately, this change leaves them and many of their peers in quite a quandary -- CAD is critical to their mission and services but, at the higher prices, these systems are no longer affordable.
Well, we have good news -- ZWCAD is high-performance, DWG-compatible CAD for FM and is available at the affordable price of $799 (permanent/full license). And the per seat cost falls much lower with network licensing. Better yet, ZWCAD Touch for field use is available for $0.
For elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, and colleges, ZWCAD provides CAD that supports maintenance, operations, repair, planning, and project management of buildings, spaces, assets, grounds, utilities, and plants. It’s used by over 300,000 customers across the world in all areas critical to FM managers, including: buildings, mechanical parts and systems, civil infrastructure, process plants, and GIS.
A review of ZWCAD highlights:
All that said, we'd like to salute the work of facility managers at schools -- you are critical to creating productive learning environments and helping our students thrive. Thank you!
Many of the world's largest engineered assets are not concentrated in a single locale but are distributed across locations and land areas. This makes the operations, maintenance, and information management for these assets especially challenging. Moreover, these assets are typically strategic to the operators and high-performance is a top priority.
These industries include:
More and more field organizations* in these industries are choosing ZWCAD as a critical component in the support of their assets -- typically in the process of capturing and entering field information back into their records. The reasons?
* More later on the use of ZWCAD in the design of these assets.
Increasingly, ZWCAD is being used in concert with 3D Solid products such as SolidWorks and PTC. Users are finding that ZWCAD is far more affordable than AutoCAD and provides all the capabilities they need (and many innovations found nowhere else) for completing and delivering the 2D detailings of 3D models.
In this application, ZWCAD is used by design teams, engineering firms, fabricators, and manufacturers around the world. They use ZWCAD to create 2D drawings/sections of mechanical parts and assemblies across a host of industries, including automotive, industrial equipment, electronics, marine, and consumer.

With the announcement of ZWCAD Windchill Integration, the domain of PLM coverage is now expanded to high-performance, affordable 2D/3D CAD. Now, 100% of design and detailing -- within an organization or across a global enterprise and whether on product or manufacturing work -- can be performed while in a PLM-supported environment. This offers rich PLM productivity tools (product-wide searching, change management, etc.) to the entire design team and full coverage benefits to product builders.
