OUR SOFTWARE

We built our own CAD software

When we first saw the trend to popular CAD, we were so unimpressed with the slow drawing process that we refused to follow a system we did not believe in. Instead of following the trend, we decided to do it a better way, our own way. We decided to build a new software ourselves, adapted to our specific needs.

Since Mac was more advanced in graphics in the 1980s, we chose to develop our software on this platform. We created each command with the same goal in mind: efficiency. All of our software commands are based around an extremely fast data entry and we train our new employees to develop muscle memory, instead of clicking long pull-down menus and sub-menus. We adapted our software to us and not the opposite.

Recently, we updated our software to be able to generate 3D models fully compatible with AutoCAD and Navisworks for the ease of collaboration with other contractors.

… and the results are amazing!

  • Fast drawing and turn-arounds: Our unique CAD interface was built for efficient data entry. We train our employees to develop muscle memory and use fast keybinds instead of slow pull-down menus.
  • Our fast data entry also allows us to send design issues to the Architects and Engineers in the early construction stages for fast resolution.
  • Real-time editing: We set up online meetings so you can review drawing changes in real-time and get the exact results you are looking for.
  • BIM modeling: Our CAD software is compatible with AutoDesk file formats. We can send you 3D models as .dwg and .nwd file formats.
