key features

manipulate, visualize, repeat

With Canvas X Pro 3D technical illustration software, visualizations of 3D CAD objects can be edited and re-edited as many times as you need, without you having to request new source files. Pro imports all the data you need to create compelling, custom illustrations of models for a raft of 2D assets.

communicate precisely

Show, hide, and ghost any part in your assembly to focus your audience on what you want them to see. use color to highlight parts within your assemblies, and move parts along their axes for exploded views which show your audience everything they need to know.

get every point of view

Display your 3D object precisely as you need to, using both orthographic and perspective views combined with a host of render modes including smooth, outlines, wireframes, technical, flat, and silhouette. vectorize your views with unbeatable detail and quality and export to a huge range of image and vector formats.
