The CAD software for suspended rear-ventilated facades: HiCAD, the leading 3-D solution

  • Do you already use automated processes for the planning or producing of suspended rear-ventilated facades?
  • Do you use different materials for your suspended rear-ventilated facades?
  • Are you constantly forced to apply changes?
  • Are you interested in a demonstration of the unique 2-D/3-D associativity of HiCAD in BIM projects?
  • Do you want to automatically generate production documents – production-ready and correct for every individual item?
  • Do you require exactly dimensioned blanks – also when dealing with individual adjustments?
  • Are complete bills of materials for all parts available to you?
  • Do you use automatic identical part search and itemisation functions?
  • Do you want your sheet developments to be passed on to CAM systems by a smart mechanism?

We optimize you complete engineering process with HiCAD!


ALUCOBOND® (video: 4:30 min.)
Plan and modify ALUCOBOND® facades safely and accurately with HiCAD ALUCOBOND®, the unique 3-D BIM solution for SZ 20 tray panels, suspended, riveted and bonded facade elements. Automatically generated production documents and blank transfer to composite panel CAM systems such as COBUS guarantee an error-free planning.

Sheet metal facade
Define your individual metal and composite panels with connection details for corner connections, attics, base points, or sub-structures (e.g. agraffes). Place customized tray panels onto complete facades in 3-D with the help of the HiCAD Element Installation module, and auto-generate all required production documents from them.

Sub-structure
Plan your sub-structures rapidly and flexibly on the basis of individual 3-D grids and smart variants for manufacturers such as HILTI, BWM or Systea. Link them to the elements of an ALUCOBOND®, sheet metal or smooth facade and auto-generate the fixing elements for the mounting of your facade elements to sub-structures. Here, too, production documents can be produced automatically.
