3-D CAD software for metalworking shops

Measurement as a basis for your 3-D designs

Your time and that of your customers is precious. That's why everything in HiCAD is interlinked and readily available: In combination with the latest 3-D scanning technology, you can precisely capture composite edges, planar surfaces and any shape in no time at all and generate them as 3-D data at the push of a button.

Use HiCAD to create drawings for
metalworking shops in HiSPEED

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

Configurator for stairs and railings

With its staircase and railing configurator, HiCAD is a real support: stairs and railings can be easily configured and loaded into HiCAD. You can also react promptly to subsequent change requests and vary the shape, model and type of mounting of your staris or railings.

+

Automated steel engineering connections

Improve your joints and connections and make use of the standards catalogue and the steel engineering libraries of HiCAD. Whether DAST connections or your own connections created as required - you will have everything you need for a load-bearing structure at your disposal. Welded and special beams and profiles can be automatically adapted to changing installation situations - according to the motto: "No connection, no neat finish".

+

Sheet Metal: from 3-D model to finished development

Starting with the creation of the basic geometry and the generation of chamfers to the developed DXF contour: thanks to HiCAD, you can develop your sheet metal construction with just a few clicks. Intelligent functions enable a fast and easy, practical corner processing, e.g. applying of mitre cuts and drainage areas as well as company-specific layer definitions.

+

Create workshop drawings and BOMs automatically

Create your drawings rapidly and easily: Get your workshop drawing at the push of a button, with development, blank and 3-D view - of course, complete with designations and dimensions. Other production documents such as BOMs or overbend tables are also generated automatically in HiCAD.

Planning and overview drawings

Create detail and approval drawings rapidly and easily: In HiCAD you can conveniently create detail views, sectional views and cut-outs from the 3-D model drawing. You can also take advantage of the benefits of 3-D planning: Not only do you create more clarity for those who use the drawing, you also create fewer drawings in total.

+

Interfaces for customers and suppliers

A large number of interfaces enable you to quickly import and export your data. Whether DXF, DWG, STEP or IFC - with HiCAD you can exchange data without any problems. This guarantees you error-free production without data loss from receipt of the order to the final product.

„HiCAD impresses by its top performance and is a very useful tool for steel and metal engineering tasks“

Bernhard Gasser, Chief Designer

Metallbau Mühlbacher

„I did not use 3-D CAD before and was therefore somewhat sceptical. But even the training was great and the program was easy to use. Right after that I started with projects. Also the support since then has been enormous and I like it. The technicians assist you and ask if everything fits. You always feel well looked after with the ISD. Now I am happy to be able to plan my orders in 3-D and I can't imagine working without HiCAD.“

Robert Mühlbacher, General Manager

Realize complex projects with state-of-the-art CAD technology

In order to be able to create these kind of model drawings easily and according to standards, we recommend using the HiCAD Steel Engineering Package or the HiCAD Steel Engineering suite premium. Do you already use LogiKal from Orgadata? Then we suggest using the Metal Engineering suite or the Metal Engineering suite premium.

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

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.
