Macdraft Personal Edition is the easiest way for both the first time home design software user and the Architecture or Interiors or Landscape or Garden design pro, or just ANY type of design pro, to quickly and easily visualize home designs or other types of designs in 2D. Check out our gallery below for some examples. Macdraft does not require any special processing power and can be used on most Mac computers. However, for best performance we recommend using the Intel core family processors, as they will give you extra processing power which will help you render your designs very quickly. (If you got your Mac in 2006 or later, you very likely have an Intel processor. To determine the type of processor in your Mac, go to the Finder and choose "About This Mac" from the Apple menu. Look at the Processor line to see which kind of processor is in your Mac.)

The Tool palette offers a full complement of drawing tools including lines, rectangles, circles, arcs, polygons, curves, parallel line and freehand tools.

Parallel line and polygon tools make it easy to create exterior walls. Add interior walls with a mouse click using the parallel extrude tool. Some tools can be configured from the Tool Palette to provide several drawing options. For example, arcs can be drawn by their radius, any 3 points, or as an elliptical arc.

There are also special tools to create lines tangent, perpendicular, and parallel to edges. Alternatively, lines can automatically be drawn from the center of an object, as well as from the middle or end points of a line or edge of an object.

MacDraft PE Pinpoint accuracy object control

The Resize palette displays the size of an object, text, or picture. When you select an item, its unique measurement parameters are displayed. Using the keyboard, you can quickly and precisely edit any of the item's measurements to a new absolute value, or a new value relative to its current size; the item is resized instantly. The Resize palette can also be used to move objects or vertices to new absolute or relative positions.

This new version of Macdraft PE is the faster and better than ever before

You will be creating useful drawings in no time using all the benefits of the new features:

The customizable toolbar saves you time going to the menus for frequently used commands. The drag and drop library palette makes finding items easier and so its much faster to use than previous library utilities. The new layers palette stays visible all the time amd gives constant feedback of which layer you are editing simplifying operations.

Images should not need to be preprocessed now with the image menu and new resize palette for images bringing more functionality within Macdraft PE. We have added new templates and sample libraries to help you get started with ease.

Combine these with the new coordinate system, better rulers, customizable scales and the clipped text feedback and you have the simplest and fastest 2D CAD program on the market with the genuine easy to learn Macintosh interface.

Customizable Toolbar

Customizable Toolbar

One new feature which will be most obvious will be the customizable toolbar which is a common in just about any application. A large number of commonly used menu commands and options can be accessed from there, greatly increasing the speed of working and therefore the drawing efficiency.

Layers Palette

We have introduced a new layers palette allowing up to 5 layers, bringing Macdraft PE up to a more familiar standard for interfacing. This allows for easier manipulation of documents with multiple layers and now that the layers are constantly in view as a palette, it gives a continuous indication of what is showing in a document. You have complete control over the layers, allowing for them to be made Visible, Grayed or Invisible. You can also merge layers, which is now undoable.

Library Palette

Library Palette

A new library palette has been introduced which makes working with symbol libraries and images much easier than before. The library palette is the same as used in the Microspot Interiors applications and makes access to multiple libraries very fast and easy with the drag and drop feature. It also works with iPhoto, meaning that your photos are automatically usable from within Macdraft PE and images can be dragged from your desktop or anywhere outside of the application.

Image menu

Image menu

The handling of images has been vastly improved with the addition of the Image menu, containing many new controls for image manipulation ranging from adjusting the Brightness/Contrast/RGB to applying a selection of Filters. This means that images will no longer need to be pre-processed in other image editing applications, saving enormous amounts of time. You can also export the selected image in many different formats for use in other applications.

Improved Resize palette

Improved Resize palette

Image resizing can sometimes be complicated, especially when printing is involved. It is important that you have absolute control over all of the image aspects. The new Resize palette gives you this control allowing for manipulation of the DPI, Pixel size and Unit size. The canvas can also be edited allowing borders and transparencies to be edited along with a very precise cropping facility.




New co-ordinate system

The new coordinate system may not be immediately apparent, however its implementation has allowed for a more precise drawing system. The size of drawing now adjusts to the LCD monitor resolution, meaning that we can display the size of a page more realistically, as one inch on the screen is now closer to one physical inch. This in turn makes drawing easier and faster without the need to use the zoom functions to adjust the size of your document.

New ruler layout

New ruler layout

Rulers are now displayed larger on higher resolution screens and have more realistic and useful divisions that adapt depending on the scale and units you have selected. Now decimal values are divided into 10 increments and fractional are divided into 8, making them more practical and easier to use than before.

Customizable scales

Customizable scales

The addition of customizable scales has meant that you have complete control over the scales that you use in your drawings. Allowing you to fill in any gaps in the default scales, making Macdraft PE much more flexible.

Feedback for clipped text

To prevent the loss of text when printing we have introduced paragraph text feedback, so than when text will not fit in the text box or may be obscured when printing, a red box will appear around it and a dialog will appear when trying to print. This option can be turned on and off via the Text menu and helps to prevent printing with incomplete text, saving time, paper and ink.

Plenty of Templates & Samples to help you on your way

We have included a large number of useful templates to help you start using Macdraft PE. Whatever reason you are using Macdraft PE for, may it be drafting or graphic work, we have templates from CAD layouts to birthday and business cards. You can also take advantage of the sample documents and a selection of sample symbol libraries. Never before has Macdraft PE included so many extras, making designs and layouts much easier and faster.
