CAD & Custom Software Development Portfolio
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 then please get in touch.
Our CAD Application Portfolio describes many examples of our previous and current development work.
We are a reseller for BricsCAD CAD software, this low cost AutoCAD compatible CAD program can read/write AutoCAD format .DWG files and provided all the 2D CAD functionality and 3D modelling needed for most day-to-day drawing.
The pull-down menus and dialogs interface and commands are similar to AutoCAD, so making any existing training and AutoCAD experience valid with BricsCAD.
At our offices in Huddersfield, we hold regular CAD training courses, and it is possibble to take a non-CAD user and have them producing neat, accurate and clear drawings by the end of the day.
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.
Output can be as .DWG and/or .PDF format files as well as paper hard copies.
Examples of some of the custom applications we have developed for various clients:
Petrol Station Layout Design
We developed this AutoCAD 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.
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
Food Service Design Program
A fully featured AutoCAD 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.
A simple requirement but a complex program. This AutoCAD application intelligently traces a closed land parcel on a OS map based on user-defined rules.
Sports Turf Layout Program
A fully featured 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.
The Airmaster Engineering technical Software for AutoCAD is an entirely dialogue driven collection of AutoCAD 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).
Rights to Light
Rights To Light is an AutoCAD 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.
