The ARCAD Systemhaus offers with the CAD and AVA system a professional industry-specific solution for the operating system LINUX.
As on a 3D volume model based software ARCAD offers you a quick mass calculation and quantity calculation, an automatic generation of views as well as an integrated visualisation.
All required data of the planner can be obtained from the 3D model.
A user-friendly face and an comprehensible operator guidance allow to the experienced CAD user as well as the new beginner quick results while learning the program.
The user sees a tidy operator interface when starting the program first.
This is split in a text-basisd menu bar with cascade menus, a toolbar for command shortcuts and the operating range.
All commands are held in plaintext and the toolbar contains a dynamic explanation to every icon.
Many commands are directly executable with the mouse, because the commands are directly bound to already edited objects.
The integration of the AVA and the visualisation (Quickshader, Raytracing and Radiosity) allow a generally concurrent work without time-consuming program changes.
In addition, there is a huge number of interfaces for the handing over and takeover of data from programs of other providers.
The program packages of the company ARCAD offer to all prospective buyers a convenient access. From the inexpensive Campus version with the restriction for non-commercial use up to ARCAD-Classic with all program modules for all jobs in an architecture office.... More Info »
With ARCAD you create in your computer a 3D model which can afterwards be displayed in any scale appropriate for DIN on your plotter or printer.
Everything for building application and execution of construction needed 2D drawings are generated simply and fast from the 3D model.
Of course ARCAD allows you also the traditional work on the drawing board.
You can decide any time which approach corresponds to your momentary requirements best of all.
ARCAD has a standardised, user-friendly operator interface which is identical for all operating ranges of the program.
You are able to learn the basic knowledge in a day.
A meaningful practise application is possible within short time.
Efficient icons and construction elements reduce the amount of routine works which leaves free space for the creative draught process.
The automatic intersection of wall, roof and cover constructions, freely placeable and scalable wall openings for single- and additional-leaf brickwork or the dimensioning appropriate for DIN is only a small assortment of all possibilities.
The program ARCAD is a CAD software which ,in link-up with our AVA program ARCHITEC, prints out all masses, surfaces and calculations in a traceable and clean form ascertained from your drawing.
Thus you can use your 3D models not only for plan development and visualisation, but also for an exact calculation.
