The innovative 3-D software for industrial facades

Individual installation areas with building reference

Individuality is the key in HiCAD! Simply carry out changes of installation areas by modern parametrics and create associative links to the steel construction. The installation area adapts automatically to all building changes. Feel flexible at any time and define joints as well as exclusions in the facde for windows and doors - and all this in a 3-D model.

Use HiCAD to create drawings for
industrial facades in HiSPEED

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

3-D solution with extensive manufacturer data

Only a few clicks to your complete facade in 3-D. Thanks to the HiCAD Profile Installation module, it has never been easier to create industrial facades quickly and easily. With manufacturer systems for roof and wall, you can start your planning directly with the right panels, trays and profiles from your preferred manufacturer. Individually definable variants are required? No problem - with HiCAD you always remain flexible!

Practice-oriented installation parameters and areas

The choice is yours! Thanks to modern parametrics, you are completely free to choose the installation direction, maximum profile length, coatings, installation start point, and much more.... only HiCAD can provide you with this extra amount of dynamics! Freely define exclusions in the facade for windows, doors and gates, and create your 3-D model with just a few clicks.

Individually controllable length optimization

With the individually configurable panel length optimization, everything runs according to your wishes. The length-optimised and exact cuttings can be shown in every drawing. You can also combine your length-optimised display with steel construction or buildings. HiCAD optimises your production and assembly with just a few clicks.


Flexible packaging options

Be flexible at any time! Divide your profiles into any number of packages and automatically generate production documents such as annotated installation plans, cut lists and standard BOMs.



Automatically generated installation plans and BOMs

Fully automatic: Installation plans, lists for panels, folded sheets and profiles, cut lists, sheet metal developments with drawings of the sheets and DXF export, profile drawings, and much more. All you have to do is click - HiCAD does the rest for you. Thanks to the automatic identical parts search and itemisation, you can go into production safely and quickly!



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.




„Considering that none of our ten designers had worked with HiCAD before, the introduction was uncomplicated and fast.“
