New level of design

  1. Who can use nanoCAD Construction?

    nanoCAD Construction is designed specifically for civil engineers and designers, providing them with design automation tools in various AEC areas. 

    When engineers use nanoCAD Construction, they avoid the tedious chores and repetitive manual tasks that are usually required to get the job done.

  1. nanoCAD Construction advantages

    nanoCAD Construction is great for making construction drawings in accordance with codes and regulations. It is intuitively simple to work with nanoCAD Construction, it does not require additional training time. You can get started right after installing the software. 

    An engineer using nanoCAD Construction is completely focused on design tasks, not on compliance control.

  1. Parametric design elements

    Strict rules are built into nanoCAD Construction objects based on typical requirements for drawing elements. These rules define the behavior of the object; they automate the routine operations of editing the object and ensure that the object is displayed correctly. They also improve the integrity of the drawing.

    Each nanoCAD Construction object is fully parametric. This means that all graphical drawing primitives, such as lines, text, etc., have their own parameters that affect their appearance and geometric configuration. These settings can affect all graphics or individual instances.

    nanoCAD Construction is the ideal tool for ensuring that drawings are in line with your organization's internal drafting standards. For example, it can enforce preferred layer names, text styles, dimension styles, etc.

  1. No need to reinvent a wheel with Library of objects

    Library of parametric objects is part of nanoCAD Construction. It includes standard parts and templates, ready to drag and drop into your drawing:

    • Concrete foundations, beams and columns;
    • Steel profiles (ISO, IS, DIN, GOST);
    • Fasteners (ISO, DIN, IS, CSN, PN/M, GOST);
    • Walls, windows, doors templates;
    • Drawing borders and title blocks.

     Every parametric object have its table of sizes, graphics and behavior on the drawing. The database is open and can be edited with an internal tool called MechWizard. This tool is used to create or modify parametric objects.

    Any organization can install an MS SQL Server to provide access for all users to a central-managed Library of parametric objects.

  1. Tables and reports

    • Standard Table Forms are included in the nanoCAD Construction library.
    • nanoCAD Construction can convert TBL, DAT, MDB, XLS / XLSX. CSV, ACCDB, TXT, XML, SXC and ODS files into tables or even recognize tables made up of primitives.
    • In addition, nanoCAD Construction has a Table Editor - a very powerful tool for creating tables of any complexity.

    Reports are used to generate lists and BOMs from drawing object data.
    The Report can use data obtained from primitives, architectural objects, objects of the nanoCAD Construction library or blocks with attributes, and it is automatically updated when the attributes of the object are changed.
    For example, the explication can be created directly using the rooms located in the drawing.
