AViCAD Features:

DWG Compatibility!

AViCAD writes to AutoCAD® DWG file format allowing to open drawing created with the latest AutoCAD® 2018 version. This means if other CAD stations in your office are working with AutoCAD®, you do not have to convert your drawing - you can enjoy an easy two way (**) exchange of drawings with AutoCAD users. And your drawing will open in their system and vice-versa. Unlike AutoCAD, AViCAD  Professional (Pro)  includes Piping, Mechanical, Structural & Ducting software modules at no extra cost.

** AviCAD 2018 opens AutoCAD 2018 drawings. When saving drawings AviCAD saves them in AutoCAD 2013 drawing format

Engineering Tools Includes:

Our Piping CAD software tools. 2d/3d piping, isometric piping and P&ID.  The piping software includes a comprehensive range of pipe, pipe fittings, flanges and valves. Pipe systems supported, include: Butt Welded, socket welded,  flanged, threaded, ductile & cast iron, grooved, stainless, PVC…Features include auto-BOM, fully customizable and a database editor to add/modify fittings. Many other piping utilities included.

Our Mechanical CAD software tools – include a range of mechanical symbols & housings, gears plus much more.  The Mechanical Module also includes material handling items (conveyor rolls, sprockets, Trajectory calculator..), springs, shafts utility plus most modules draw in 2D or 3D.
