Shop fittings or exhibition stand construction require planning, construction and design in equal measure. With HiCAD you create a design that is bound to visually impress the customer by its colours, textures and projections. The associated production documents can mostly be created at the push of a button.
Use HiCAD to create drawings for object design in HiSPEED
The following functions help you achieve a time-saving workflow:
3-D planning and design in 2-D layout
The architect or client usually still provides the layout in 2-D format. With HiCAD you can read in any common interface and generate the on-site environment from it. Working in parallel in the 3-D world with the underlying 2-D plan eliminates unnecessary discrepancies between old and new.
Layout with existing equipment
Recurring equipment can be managed in the HiCAD user catalogue in an access rights controlled manner. If you use the index management of our PDM system HELiOS, you are guaranteed to correctly schedule the current status of your objects. Textures already used in the design phase increase the chances of receiving orders.
Supplier and customer relations
With a CAD system, there are no limits to the creativity for creating new design objects - if it's called HiCAD! No matter whether it's a question of shaping or machining, with HiCAD you will succeed in creating individual pieces and series.
One, two or more parts at the push of a button
If objects with grid dimensions exist, variant technology offers an excellent tool for generating deviating sizes in the shortest possible time. With the HiCAD Constraint Manager, worktops or drawers always remain in the right place. The fixed distances to wall or floor are maintained.
Drawings and BOMs for production
From layout to production drawing, we support you with automatically generated views, dimensions and annotations. The always current sectional views, detail views and cut-out views guarantee a smooth production and set-up process.
Presentation and documentation for planning
Photorealistic images, exploded views and motion simulations in the form of videos make your model drawings very clear and descriptive. With the product structure stored in HELiOS, an assembly BOM, for example, can be created directly from the ISD-PDM system. The documents are up-to-date and checked.
„The flexible possibilities of automation - like those of macro technology - open up the best possible integration into our company processes. Thanks to HiCAD, we can accompany the entire process chain from layout to production drawing.“
Christian Strubberg, Head of IT
Enter a new dimension of travelling with HiCAD
Pick-up-and-go GmbH | Reference report
"Travelling offers us the opportunity to remember relatively easily how extraordinary many things are," explains the Swiss philosopher Alain de Botton in a Goethe-Institut publication. His compatriot and HiCAD user Kilian Waldschmidt, founder and CEO of the start-up "pick-up-and-go GmbH", should like this statement. His profession is dedicated to extremely practical touring vehicles that can be flexibly adapted to the needs of their drivers thanks to their modular design.
„I consider the large parts catalogue from various industries to be another impor-tant component for an efficient workflow. Since we have a lot to do with mechanical details, it must be possible to insert the parts quickly and easily.“
Kilian Waldschmidt, Managing Director Pick-up-and-go GmbH
