Draw By HUC using Vector Sketch Tools
A Revolution in Drafting
WildTools for PowerCADD. Suddenly users had drawing tools that easily matched or exceeded the capabilities of high-end CAD and illustration programs. With the introduction of WildTools 2.0, the high-end programs were left in the dust, and Macintosh users finally had drawing tools to make their PC friends green with envy. Now with WildTools 4, the progress continues and you have powerful tools for isometric drawing, architecture and mechanical drawings.
Perhaps the most remarkable thing about WildTools is how unassuming and familiar they seem at first glance. You can begin to draw immediately, without a glance at the manual, as in the most basic 'draw' programs, yet it's apparent from the beginning that the tools have enormous power and capabilities.
For example, all CAD programs have a fillet tool, which you quickly discover will only work with lines and circles. The WildTools fillet tool will fillet anything to anything, thus you can fillet a rotated elliptical arc to a parallel spline inside a group.
All illustration programs have a tool to draw Béziers, yet without exception they depend on a confusing array of key-press combinations to manipulate the curves. The WildTools Pen tool is unlike any other. It's infinitely more powerful than the typical pen tool, yet also the easiest to us by far.
WildTools introduces Parallel Objects, a new type of External object.
Wavy Line Tool...
The Wavy Line tool allows you to draw a variety of wavy lines for fabric walls, zig-zag lines, steel decking, frieze details or water waves.
Linear Patterning Tool
The Linear Patterning tool allows you to place repeated patterns of any objects along a line, curve or path. The objects can be on the path or offset from it, and you have a number of choices of how the objects may be located and/or rotated.
In all, there are over 200 powerful tools in WildTools, and the result is a spectacular advance in the state of the art. If you've spent any time drawing on a computer, you know that frustrations are an integral part of the process. As you draw, some things go smoothly and then you'll have that old feeling of walking in quick sand as you hit some part of the drawing that you can't do easily. WildTools may not end all frustrations, but it certainly will end the most common ones involved in drafting. Once you experience drafting with WildTools, you can never go back, but bring a whip and a chair.
This is the heart of the WildTools/PowerCADD combination, where the distinctions of CAD and illustration vanish in thin air. This is drawing at its best lines and curves on paper and it matters little whether you're drawing an office building, a helical gear, a map, or a flower.
