- You choose Professional Software Engineering when you hire
GrayTech to team up with you and your staff, and utilize our
software engineering skills for Windows or .NET applications.
Areas we can assist with are graphical Desktop Applications
developed with Visual Studio, .NET Web Applications and mixed

OpenGL rendering, Numerical Control machining, . . .
Engine - is the core engine of GTWorks,
provided with example GUIs for Visual Studio development. Currently
the GTWorks viewer has been rewritten using this
new framework. All menus, dialogs and interaction has been converted
to a Windows style interface layer which calls the GTWorks engine
as a DLL, GTW.dll. Using Visual Studio 2008 or later, a client
may create their own CAD based software or internal use or sale.

CAD X11® FREE is a great tool for 2D drafting and basic
wireframe and surface modeling. All drafting features of
CAD X11® Professional are supported making this free version
a production class CAD tool for small drawings for any company.
This software can be completely standalone supporting several drafting
standards, files up to 200 kb in size and outputting the results
onto Windows based printers or into PDF files. Or, CAD X11®
FREE can be intermixed with other CAD software by importing data
via the DXF CAD communication format.
This is truly a free program, no time limits and it can be used
for commercial purposes.
Go to the CAD X11®
FREE product page to download the latest version.
Upgrade To CAD X11® Pro
For $29.95 upgrade from the free version to CAD

version, you have 1024 layers versus 1, up to 50 MB files versus
0.2 (0.2 can handle B and some C size drawings), DXF export, IGES
support, Auto Save, Geometric Analysis, the Architectural Wall function,
Surface OpenGL and Direct3D shading and numerous special data exchange
Or Select - GTWorks Lite For Complex 3D Surface
For $50 ($40 for CAD X11 Pro users), select GTWorks
Lifetime Support for extensive 3D model building, additional
complex surface types, NURBS curves and surfaces, surface trimming,
OpenGL and Direct3D rendering, IGES surface support, surface geometric
analysis and up to 8 multiple/editable views.
Or Choose Our Most Powerful - GTWorks Professional
GTWorks is our most powerful 3-D CAD/CAM system, with 5 times
more functionality than CAD X11®, for use in design, drafting
includes concentrated functionality for a variety of design and
manufacturing operations, including flat pattern development, interactive
nesting and numerical control programming (up to 5-axis milling,
lathe, punching, flame cutting and wire EDM).
The user interface is unique, originally developed for Unix, allowing
for keyboard shortcuts, mouse shortcuts, 200 plus customized buttons,
user macros, keystroke logs, batch processing and development of
your own functions in C/C++.
Or Develop Your Own Desktop Application Software
The GTWorks library/dll is designed to be a base CAD system
for you to create and sell you own CAD based applications w/o requiring
your client to purchase an expensive base CAD system as a prerequisite.
The GTWorks library is the core of our commercial GTWorks system
and is being used to produce a Windows style GUI. As this project
proceeds, licensees of the GTWorks library will be provided with
the same GUI source code that GrayTech is using for this commercial
