Welcome to VEST HyDraw® CAD800
Create accurate, error free, professionally drawn
hydraulic circuits, parts lists, and quotations
quickly and easily.
Drag-and-drop ‘smart’ symbols into a drawing
with point-and-click component selection.
The ‘smart’ connection lines snap to ports and
self-route with jumpers.
Auto BOM generation ensures accuracy of your
Bill of Materials. Easily insert it into the circuit
drawing, or export it to Microsoft Excel.
Get started with over 8,000 ISO 1219-1 compliant
symbols covering both industrial and mobile
hydraulics. ‘Remember’ your data and rules using
HyDraw custom database. Ensure up-to-date
pricing of components by linking your ERP data to
HyDraw.
Circuit design data can be easily ported to
downstream manifold design and CAM systems.
HyDraw can access manufacturer component
data from FluidPowerTools.com, a fee-based
service from VEST. Also, submit your circuit to
QuickManifolds.com for ‘instant’ manifold
design.
HyDraw CAD drawing area with HyDraw CAD Ribbon menu, HyDraw Library Explorer, and HyDraw Property Manager
Use HyDraw and ensure your competitive edge.

HyDraw® CAD800

HyDraw® CAD800 is easy to use. It works seamlessly
with its own ribbon menu. HyDraw symbols are
located quickly by navigating logically structured
menus. Sets of related symbols are shown together
and any required symbol can be inserted into the
drawing by drag and drop method or double click on a
symbol. You can insert generic symbols or model code
specific component symbols into the library. Edit
parametric properties of the inserted symbols, when
needed.
HyDraw Library
The HyDraw library accommodates a wide range of
simple and complex graphical component symbols,
and schematic diagrams covering both Industrial and
Mobile Hydraulics. Designed in accordance with
ISO1219-1:2012, Fluid Power Systems and
Components - Graphic Symbols and Circuit Diagrams Part 1: Graphic Symbols for Conventional Use and Data
Processing Applications. A few percentile deviations
from ISO standard necessitated keeping in view the
large variants of symbols and customer base. The
HyDraw library includes both Slip-in and Screw-in
Cartridge valves and associated symbols for manifold
design circuits.
Smart Symbols
HyDraw symbols are created using primitive
shapes, such as lines, polylines, rectangles, squares,
circles, circular arcs, ellipsis. They represent
components with specified functions or method of
operation in the de-energized (at rest) position, or
component specific rule that do not have a clearly
defined de-energized position. A pool of ISO
specified primitive shapes are included in the
library to help you design your own generic
symbols. HyDraw symbols also include port
identification and port numbering, which is
essential for manifold design.
ISO guidelines
VEST has adhered to ISO guidelines of Module
System (1Module = 2 Millimeter), where the
symbol fits into a grid and presents a symmetry.
The use of layer properties for assigning ISO
defined color to Supply line, Return line, Pilot line,
Drain line, Envelope line, and Flow direction
exhibits appealing color graphics, which help in
instant understanding of the operational aspect of
the component. Layer properties are also utilized
for naming ports, positions and solenoids. (both US
and European pattern)
Search
The new and powerful HyDraw CAD800 Search from
library command searches general or OEM specific
symbols and circuits from
www.FluidPowerTools.com, saving time and effort.
Teamwork
HyDraw helps standardization and teamwork.
Multiple users within a local area network can
share a common HyDraw library. This enhances
productivity of the design and engineering team.
Customization
Customize HyDraw to your specific need using the
library and data management console. Save custom
components data with symbols tagged to a specific
model code and relevant OEM catalog data.
More…
Dynamic Directional Control (DC) Valve design and
OEM-specific circuit design with Parts List from
component properties held in the library make the
software very productive.
Net List creation, Manifold Cost estimation and
interface to FluidPowerTools.com enable significant
cost and time savings.
