The innovative 3-D facade engineering solution

BIM compliant planning with smart industry solutions

Our 3-D solution for facade engineering contains everything that will get you to your goal quickly: all industry functions in just one system. You can work at any time with the functionalities from mechanical engineering, beam, profile and sheet metal construction, steel engineering and facade construction. This makes HiCAD a real all-rounder!

Use HiCAD to create drawings for
element facades in HiSPEED

the following functions help you achieve a time-saving workflow:

Variable elements through efficient parametrics

Avoid unneccessary double work. Design similar elements only once in HiCAD thanks to modern parametrics. Features, constraints and variables are available for quick and easy element parameterization. Your same components in different elements are safely managed thanks to referencing.

Combined free and parametric modelling

Changes during projects occur quite frequently. The only thing that helps here is calmness and the necessary portion of dynamism. HiCAD makes it possible and lets you adapt individual components from your model drawing as you wish in every phase of your process. Free and parametric modeling also brings flexibility to your project.

+

Identical part search and automatically created production documents

Thanks to our powerful functions, you can always see how many times identical parts are used in your project. In this way, you always retain control of the project and can manage production efficiently and effectively. In HiCAD, the creation of any lists for panels, folded sheets, profiles and accessories as well as blank lists is just as simple and fast as the automatic output of practice-oriented dimensioned production drawings.

Release and modification management

Our self-developed PDM system HELiOS guarantees you safe processes. With the integrated project, article and document management, searching for data is a thing of the past. Direct access from production or from the construction site? No problem thanks to plot management and Internet server. Would you like to know which changes in a project were implemented by whom? HELiOS offers you a clear answer to this question at any time.

+

Customer drawings and mounting drawings derived from 3-D

Derive your customer and mounting drawings automatically from your 3-D model. Even if changes are made to your drawing, it will always remain up to date thanks to HiCAD's full 2-D/3-D associativity! 3-D details guarantee you simple and secure communication with customers and the production department.

BIM solution for execution and on-site planning

With full 3-D modelling, a modern part structure and support for IFC 2 x 3 and IFC 4, we can safely say: HiCAD is fully BIM compliant! We support you in your BIM process with all functions and automatisms relevant to structural engineering!

HiCAD for geometrically demanding facades

PBF Fassadentechnik GmbH |

“The requirements placed on Metal and Facade Engineering become ever more stringent. Facades should be facelifted without tenants having to move. Demands on aesthetics, housing technology, compliance with standards insulation values, energy and sustainability issues or topics such as burglary or fire protection become ever more demanding, too, and require comprehensive consulting”, explains Roman Rutz, managing director since 2006 of PBF Fassadentechnik GmbH founded in 1995.

Flexible from the model drawing to the output of production documents

Practice-oriented working techniques and a high degree of automation optimize development time and quality. The HiCAD Metal Engineering suite premium provides you with all modules and functions you need for your facade engineering project.

We would be pleased to advise you on the suites, the individual functions and configuration levels - feel free to contact us.

HELiOS – CAD data management for engineering

With HELiOS the CAD suites can be extended to a professional data/process management system.

1

Reuse

Elements from older projects can be reused faster.

2

Faster search

The time needed to search for drawings, documents and geometries is significantly reduced.

3

Optimal data maintenance

Data are transferred directly into your ERP system and therefore do not have to be maintained twice.

4

Central data management

Provision of meaningful and valuable information in one central location.
