nanoCAD Construction

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.

Support of *.dwg format

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.

2D drafting functions

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.

Architectural plans

Architecture module of nanoCAD Construction application permits you to draw plans using superior instruments and objects, comprising of:

  • Linear and arc shaped walls that automatically join
  • Customized templates of walls (geometry, attributes, multi-layer construction properties)
  • Wall edit tools (trim, break, join) using platform commands or grips
  • Insertion of windows and doors using database of templates
  • Drawing of rooms and spaces on the plan, customization of space attributes and decoration
  • Automatic calculation and creation of Explication of rooms and List of decorations
  • Insertion of interior elements using database of templates
  • Drawing design utilities

    Drawing design utilities easily assistance architect or engineer:

  • To create user-defined hatch pattern in *.pat file
  • To create and calculate plate array
  • To make a fully-customized array of objects
  • To design a hole chart
  • To make static beam calculation
  • To calculate numbers using internal calculator
  • To calculate geometrical characteristics of user-defined section

    Multifunction-Grips in drawing design elements

    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.

    Scaling of objects

    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.

    Drawing borders and title blocks

    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.

    Tables and advance table edit

    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:

  • Cell style (text style and alignment, line weight, number value rounding)
  • Table headers and footers
  • Using of table calculations
  • Clipboard and direct interaction with MS Excel or Open Office tables
  • Pencil drawing of cells
  • In-place table edit on the drawing
  • Library of parametric objects

    Library of parametric objects is preinstalled with nanoCAD Construction. It comprises standard parts and templates:

  • Concrete foundations, beams and columns
  • Steel profiles (ISO, IS, DIN, GOST)
  • Fasteners (ISO, DIN, IS, CSN, PN/M, GOST)
  • Wall, windows, doors templates
  • Drawing borders and title blocks
  • Customization in nanoCAD Construction

    nanoCAD Construction is highly customizable and can meet requirements of every standard. Things that can be customized in the software are:

  • Dimension style
  • Text style and fonts
  • Drawing borders and title block templates
  • Colors and parameters of drawing design elements
  • Table and report templates
  • In-place table edit on the drawing
  • Templates for architectural objects (multilayer constructions, window templates, door templates, interior objects
  • Drawing design elements

    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:

  • Drawing borders and title blocks;
  • Coordinate axes, orthogonal and polar arrays of coordinate axes;
  • Drawing and editing walls on the plan;
  • Drawing and creation of windows, doors and database with templates;
  • Working with spaces, preparation of explication, calculation of decorations;
  • Level marks;
  • Notes;
  • Views and section designations;
  • Technical requirements editor;
  • Designation of breaks that hides underlying geometry;
  • Ground border;
  • Designation of permanent joints;
  • Database of parametric elements.
  • Parametric in design elements

    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.
