2-D/3-D CAD Software

Our CAD development focuses on SmartDesign, that is supporting our users with powerful tools and intelligent automatisms for 2-D and 3-D design tasks.

First 2-D, then 3-D and back again

With HiCAD you are technically absolutely flexible in both 2-D and 3-D. Design your models directly in 3-D and derive the 2-D drawing from it. Or work in 2-D, add 3-D objects to the 2-D drawing as required and automatically convert the drawing into a 3-D model. As a modern CAD system, HiCAD supports you with proven 2-D drawing functions, innovative 3-D modelling and special functions for various industries.

Sophisticated visualizations

It's very easy to quickly realize your innovative ideas and visualize them in a promotionally effective way, e.g. rendered, as 3-D PDF or as stereoscopic 3-D presentation. By the way, the full 2-D/3-D associativity also creates the basis for a smooth and productive transition from 2-D to the 3-D CAD.

Rapid corrections and adjustments

With HiCAD you are absolutely flexible in terms of modelling techniques. Use free modelling (direct modelling) for quick corrections or rely on parametric modelling to make design changes at any time at the push of a button - from the first draft to the automatic generation of all required production documents and realistic visualization of the models.

Numerous reuse and automation tools help you streamline routine tasks and significantly speed up design workflows. The extremely compact data structure always ensures smooth design processes - even for the largest models.

Use old data, increase speed and productivity, output data without errors

Even if you change your CAD system or switch from 2-D to 3-D, you don't have to start from scratch, you are productive right from the start. Not only is HiCAD very user-friendly and intuitive to use; it also allows the reuse and editing of existing CAD data. This enables a smooth transition from 2-D to 3-D CAD, as you can automatically convert your 2-D data into 3-D models as required.
