Drawj2d creates technical line drawings using a descriptive language. It writes pdf, svg, eps, emf and dxf vector graphics or png images. It runs on all platforms that run Java. It is inspired by Asymptote but with a tcl-like syntax and 2D only.


  • DRAW lines, points, circles, ellipses, arcs, parabolas, arrows and dimension lines
  • WRITE labels using any font. LaTeX typesetting (computer modern font) supported.
  • IMPORT images, pdf, svg, dxf
  • SET color, line width and line type: solid, dotted, dashdotted
  • DRAW TO SCALE 1:50, 1:100, 1:20
  • different output formats Vector formats: pdf (Acrobat Reader, pdfLaTeX), svg (Browser, OpenOffice/LibreOffice), eps (LaTeX), emf (Microsoft Word). Bitmap formats png, bmp. Intermediate formats: tikz (LaTeX), bgd (Fachwerk), hcl (Drawj2d), rm (reMarkable), dxf (CAD).
  • platform independent Drawj2d runs on every platform which runs Java: Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, Unix
  • reusable drawings Drawings can be parametrised using variables.
  • programming language Built in string based (tcl-like) scripting language Hecl (hcl) allows advanced features and extensibility.
  • mavscript compatible Mavscript templates can embed calls to Drawj2d. Thus drawings can be created that depend on calculations.
  • statics functions for engineers E.g. force arrows have their own scale, force vector addition respects equilibrium.
