Partnership with Autodesk
AutoCAD Architecture and hsbCAD: Reducing design, material, and labour costs. Now building designers and construction companies can dramatically reduce material waste and the labour required to construct new buildings. Together, Autodesk and hsbCAD bring the power of AutoCAD© Architecture to hsbCAD’s building design and manufacturing software tools.
With solutions for the prefabrication market, stick frame homes (panelised walls, roofs and floors in both timber and light gauge steel), roof construction, log homes, SIPS and solid timber homes, all become an easy task. hsbCAD provides CAD-designers with increased efficiency in their design functionality for prefabricated buildings and automated shop drawings and bill of materials while outputting CNC code. hsbCAD’s dynamic behaviour reduces design time and errors. hsbCAD is one integrated solution that covers the whole design process from planning to manufacture. hsbCAD also works hand-in-hand with the Alpine VIEW truss and floor systems, saving time and reducing errors.
hsbCAD was named an “Autodesk Preferred Industry Partner” for wood building design in the Americas and Europe in 2007.
