HiCAD 2019 - CAD for all-rounders and specialists

With its Major Release of HiCAD 2019 the ISD Group presents you once more with a plethora of highlights and enhancements throughout its different industry solutions. One notable highlight is, for instance, the new Profile Installation module for a fast and easy realisation of industrial facades. With the help of this module, profiles can be installed on different layers on a sketch, while inserts can be omitted with freely selectable offsets, and transverse joints can be cut in different ways (butt joint, overlapping joint, rigid joint, ...). Furthermore, the profiles can be subdivided into different packages (“Packaging”), and the profile lengths can be adjusted before shipping to reduce the number of different profile lengths to be shipped. For complete installations, BOMs and drawings can be generated automatically. Another prominent highlight is the new Textures tool. HiCAD 2019 offers a multitude of new textures, e.g. for architecture, metals and non-metals. Also, new functions for assigning of new textures, the creating of new or changing of existing textures are available.

Other highlights include the redesign of the 3-D part structure in the ICN, the enhanced 3-D sketch functions, the concentric transformation for exploded views, the introduction of so-called “dependent assemblies”, the optimized Staircase Configurator dialogue, the QOMET-specific BOMs in Steel Engineering, the new Down-grade Editor in Plant Engineering or the completely revised functionality for flanges along sketches in Sheet Metal.

In the example the cone has been subtracted from the cylinder. In HiCAD 2018, 2 section curves with 286 / 301 control points (1) were created. In HiCAD 2019, only 1 section curve with 58 control points (2) is created.
