HiCAD 2018 - now available!
Delivering Experience – The new Major Release is out now!
HiCAD 2018 comes with a multitude of new and enhanced functions. Just one example is the new automatic itemisation for all industries. The itemisation parameters are directly saved in the model drawing, part groups are freely configurable and industry-specific configurations can be defined and re-used as Favourites. The fixed part groups that were used for the old itemisation have been replaced with freely configurable part groups the elements of which can be assembled with the help of part filters.
Further new features are hole patterns according to DIN 24041, the new exploded view function, the thread representation with textures, the 3-D representation of sectional views, the product structure transfer from P+IDs, the further expanded Standard Part inventory for Plant Engineering, the enhanced functionality for dynamic pipeline route change, or the creation of sub-structures for Element Installation. Another important novelty is the possibility to create milling edge zones for Sheet Metal parts, which can now be selected besides bend zones. You can do so, for instance, when attaching flanges, processing corners, adjusting bend zones, creating sheets along sketches or applying mitre cuts.
