Custom CAD Applications
One of our major strengths is the development of special purpose CAD applications, We harness the power of custom programming within AutoCAD and BricsCAD to perform typical day-to-day tasks and speed-up your drawing production saving your company countless hours of repetitive work.
If there is a specific CAD task that you wish to automate large or small then please get in touch.
Examples of some of the custom applications we have developed for various clients:
Petrol Station Layout Design
We developed this AutoCAD / BricsCAD application for a major petrol retailer. The software designs and details the best possible solution ( configuration of entrance, exit, canopy, number of pump islands, HGV, car wash, service bays, parking, retail outlet etc.) from thousands of possibilities for a particular parcel of land, taking into account its roadside position and alignment.
Food Service Design Program
A fully featured AutoCAD / BricsCAD program to facilitate the design and layout of facilities for the commercial food services market.
The program allows the designer to select from a database, assets from a wide of manufacturers. The program includes a Bill Of Materials generator.
The Airmaster Engineering technical Software for AutoCAD / BricsCAD is an entirely dialogue driven collection of AutoCAD / BricsCAD application programs to facilitate the production of dimensioned front and side views of Airmaster products.
This application allows the user to automatically place steel piling products in the correct alignment along a polyline taking into account obstructions (typically used on canals).
Portakabin Layout Design
We created this application to be used as a sales tool to configure the internal layout of a Portakabin ( walls, lighting, heating washing facilities, desks and storage etc) to best suit the customers requirements.
A simple requirement but a complex program. This AutoCAD / BricsCAD application intelligently traces a closed land parcel on a OS map based on user-defined rules.
Sports Turf Layout Program
A fully featured AutoCAD / BricsCAD program to facilitate the design and layout of sports markings on artificial tutfed surfaces for the sports and leisure market.
The program allows the designer to easily and quickly create a range of markings and pitch types. These are optimised and for the manufacture of individual rolls and laying diagrams.
Rights to Light
Rights To Light is an AutoCAD / BricsCAD application we developed for a London based company. It quickly calculates the before and after situations with respect to surrounding buildings and natural daylight at the planning stage of new high rise buildings.
Before the COVID Pandemic we held regular BricsCAD training courses at our offices in Huddersfield, and it is possible to take a non-CAD user and have them producing neat, accurate and clear drawings by the end of the day although 2 days is recommended. During the pandemic we are currently running one-one courses online.
Contact us for details of our CAD training courses.
We can convert your existing drawings or sketches into CAD drawings, we can do one-off CAD drawings or whole series of construction details.
