The 3-D solution for for sheet metal processing

High precision sheet processing

Use HiCAD to model with highest precision! Powerful features give you complete control over your product at all times. Are you finished with your model drawing? Then create drawings for the production department in just a few steps, or export the results as DXF.

Use HiCAD to create your drawings for
sheet metal processing in HiSPEED

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

 

High-precision sheet metal processing

Use HiCAD to model with highest precision! Powerful features give you complete control over your product at all times. Are you finished with your model drawing? Then create drawings for the production department in just a few steps, or export the results as DXF.

+

Powerful sheet modelling function

You want to create products for third parties or parts for own machines? Then, we recommend using HiCAD Sheet Metal for these tasks. Planning sheet metal constructions is easy and, above all, fun. For example, use a sketch as a basis and close all corners with specially designed functions! What if subsequent adjustments are required? No problem, all the functions used can be easily adapted later.

+

Create workshop drawings with only a few mouse clicks

Effortlessly create shop drawings with dimensions, data, results and cross-sections! As a user you have full control over how the workshop drawings are created. Use our standards or develop your own settings for workshop drawing standards.

+

Achieve top results

You can easily place your constructions or generate results, including dimensions, annotations, engravings and bend lines. Shortenings due to bending can be calculated automatically using the standard bending tables and calculations according to DIN 6935. Do you use your own bending tables? No problem, you can easily create and use them in HiCAD.

+

Bending simulations for modelling purposes

You would like to model sheet metal bending parts? Thanks to our bending simulation this is no problem! As a result, the product is temporarily displayed so that you can carry out precise machining operations. Have you finished adding machining operations? Then simply deactivate the bending simulation again.

+

Easy control of the production

Finished with the design? Then simply export the files for production. Think of DWG, DXF or STEP. The results are automatically provided with dimensions, contours and bend lines. Even engraving text or images is no problem!

„When it comes to drawing and processing sheet metal products, we think HiCAD is still the best!“

Kasper Mussche, Head of Department

Metaalbouw TSV

„If you are looking for CAD software that can handle all conceivable sheet metal processing tasks in one and the same program, HiCAD is the right solution.“

Reinier Huizing, Draftsman, Work Planner and Project Manager

KLEUSBERG GmbH & Co. KG

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

Ralf Baron, Chief Designer

MAP E. Prinzing & Söhne GmbH + Co. KG

„With MAP, the HiCAD functionalities of sheet metal design are particularly relevant for day-to-day business.“

Heinz Kaufmann, Licensing

„The sheet metal functions integrated in HiCAD have particularly promoted the increase in productivity in our company. Furthermore, errors during the design process could be minimized and thus also the faster handling of projects could be realized.“

Bernhard Gratz, Project Leader Alu

VHV Anlagenbau GmbH

„We can optimally plan and manufacture our conveyor belts thanks to HiCAD's various industry solutions. We make extensive use of the HiCAD functionalities for mechanical engineering, but also those of steel engineering and sheet metal. The possibilities of the individual modules show the user are perfectly coordinated - one function interacts with the other. This has extremely optimised our processes from planning to production.“

Bernhard Verlage, Technical Director
