nanoCAD Construction is a standalone 2D drafting and design application with a huge library of standard parts and tools designed to help automate design tasks of building and construction engineers and for AEC drawings creation. nanoCAD Construction is developed specially for construction engineers and drafters, giving them with opportunities in the field of automation of design as well as construction work in numerous areas of the AEC industry. nanoCAD Construction can be used by Facilities Management engineers. nanoCAD Construction is exceptional for planning of construction drawings in accordance with norms and regulations. nanoCAD is intuitively simple and doesn’t need extra time for training. Users can start working once they have installed the software. An engineer using nanoCAD Construction is fully attentive on design tasks rather than control of different primitives and implementation of standard conformity. In the heart of nanoCAD Construction is an industry accepted parametric design engine working on top of a nanoCAD CAD platform. When designers using nanoCAD Construction, they avoid monotonous routines and tedious manual tasks normally essential to get the job done.
nanoCAD Construction allows support of all versions of *.dwg format. Users can save information in all the versions of dwg format compatible with AutoCAD, including AutoCAD LT. DWG is a native format of nanoCAD Construction and all files are saved in it.
nanoCAD includes all essential functions for 2D drafting. The nanoCAD Construction software is designed for final planning of drawings in agreement to drafting standards, but as well can be used to creating engineering drawings from scratch. Common instruments will enable you to create an engineering drawing of any complexity, to edit it, to add dimensions, to work with multi- or single-line texts, raster inserts, external references and many other objects. There is a diversity of settings which includes layers, dimension and text styles, line types, and units and drawing limits. Object snaps, orthographic and polar tracking and other regimes guarantee comfort drafting environment. Plotting can be complete from model or layout space.
Architecture module of nanoCAD Construction application permits you to draw plans using superior instruments and objects, comprising of:
Drawing design utilities easily assistance architect or engineer:
nanoCAD Construction objects use their intelligent features that can be seen in contact between objects on the drawing while editing. An object comprises a number of graphical primitives that work as a whole. A special grip permits you to stretch, rotate, move and rotate object or alter its geometry and start object-related instructions. The commands can be well performed using context menu. For instance, you can add extension lines, align text, mirror object or change arrow form using special grips.
Construction drawings have a lot of views of a different scale. nanoCAD Construction uses symbol scale property to adjust the scale of particular fragment in just two clicks. It also enables you to avoid generating a set of text and dimension styles. nanoCAD Construction symbol scale also can change platform primitives such as texts, line type scale or dimensions. The scaling plan can be set up for drafting completely in model space or on layouts using viewports.
nanoCAD Construction have instruments of placement of drawing borders and title blocks in accordance with ISO, DIN, IS standards. Drawing borders and title blocks’ templates are stored in database and can be effortlessly edited or re-drawn using primitives.
Standard-defined table forms are comprised in nanoCAD Construction database, but internal table editor is a very powerful tool to create tables of any complexity. Table design features consist of:
Library of parametric objects is preinstalled with nanoCAD Construction. It comprises standard parts and templates:
nanoCAD Construction is highly customizable and can meet requirements of every standard. Things that can be customized in the software are:
nanoCAD Construction includes vast number of features based on the technology of intellectual drawing elements. These features automate most routine operations of creation of façade, plan, sections and detail views. Main groups of functions include:
nanoCAD Construction objects use strict rules based on drafting requirements for the design element of a particular type. These rules are called object’s behavior and it automates routine operations of object editing and drawing correction, as well as enhances entire drawing completeness. Every nanoCAD Construction object is fully parametric. That means that all primitives (like notches, lines, text) that make up drawing design object have their parameters influencing their view and geometric configuration. These parameters could influence all design elements or specific instances. nanoCAD Construction is a perfect tool to ensure accordance of drawing for organization’s internal drafting standard. For example it can enforce using of preferred layer names, text styles, dimension styles.
