Innovative facade planning for the entire building shell directly in 3-D

Automated 3-D installation with individual planning grids

Plan your entire building shell directly in 3-D. Powerful tools such as the individual planning grids with modern sketch function and definable parametrics speed up the planning of your facade. Transfer your grid from 2-D or your 3-D BIM model and have your sheets and panels installed automatically by HiCAD.

Use HiCAD to create drawings for
rear-ventilated facades in HiSPEED

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

ALUCOBOND®, EQUITONE

Plan directly with our standard solution! Manufacturers such as ALUCOBOND © and EQUITONE rely on HiCAD and enable a detailed planning of attics, base points, corners as well as window and door connections in addition to placing the panels. Create your 3-D complete model effortlessly, including panels, profiles, corner connections and fasteners!

Parametrics and integration of individual systems

Do you want to install user-specific panels? No problem - in HiCAD you can define your own element variants for sheet or plate elements and place them automatically. Individual parameterization is available to you using the latest feature, constraint and variable technology.

+

Integrated 3-D solution for sub-structures

Of course, sub-structures can also be generated automatically in HiCAD. The automated placement on individual axis grids can be easily and quickly linked to the installed trays and panels. To make sure that you are always on the safe side, there is a constant comparison of the processings on sub-structures and installed elements.

Combined free and parametric modelling

Changes frequently occur during projects. The only thing that helps here is calmness and the necessary amount of dynamism. HiCAD makes this possible and lets you adapt individual components from your model drawing at any stage of your process. Combined free and parametric modeling brings extra flexibility to your project.

+

True 2-D/3-D associativity

Be uniquely flexible with HiCAD! Combine 2-D and 3-D CAD in one single model and start your 3-D planning directly in your 2-D drawing. Thanks to versatile options for direct use of the 2-D data in 3-D CAD, all changes will be directly transferred to your 3-D model.

+

BIM solution for execution and on-site planning

Due to the complete 3-D modelling and state-of-the-art part structure as well as the support of IFC 2 x 3 and IFC 4 we can say: HiCAD is fully BIM compliant! We support you in your BIM process with all functions and automatisms that are needed in the building industry!
