You are able to minimise function zone to obtain more space in design operation. Meanwhile, customizable Quick Access Toolbar is designed to meet your specific operation requests and habits.


Non-switching user interface that is easier for users to switch between different ribbon/classic interfaces instead of having to restart the program.

Users can change views, visual styles, viewports and other settings. The UI also has a familiar Command Line for those who are inclined to use it.

Traditional classic user interface that will be more familiar to AutoCAD® users. Having both of user interfaces together harmoniously is an important part of GstarCAD, Hundreds of millions of people rely on the classic and old AutoCAD® platform every day, and would value (and expect) us to bring forward aspects of that experience to their next generation windows base ribbon interface.
