HiCAD ALUCOBOND® - A new product solution for facade engineering

(PresseBox) ( Dortmund, )
HiCAD ALUCOBOND® is a new CAD-system for facade engineering. Developed by ISD Software und Systeme GmbH, Dortmund in conjunction with 3A Composites GmbH, Singen, the system enables users to design a complete building envelope from its initial concept to issuing production documents, as well as consistent transfer to the CNC production equipment.

HiCAD ALUCOBOND® software is exclusively tailored to suit ALUCOBOND® aluminum composite panels. From the initial planning phase onwards, users can now create three-dimensional forms specifically for ALUCOBOND® tray panels. Positioning of ALUCOBOND® tray panels in a 3D grid can also be carried out automatically. In addition, HiCAD ALUCOBOND® offers individual design functions, such as creating corner connections, brackets and connecting elements. Adding the chosen surface and colour is simple due to the wide range of ALUCOBOND® coatings.

The HiCAD data in is then processed with specific ALUCOBOND® product information and can be transferred to CNC production equipment.
