PRODUCT INFORMATION


AllyCAD Draughting Technique Works Like You Do!

 

AllyCAD 3.4 is one of the most powerful CAD tools in the market place. The program has been tried and trusted by thousands of users around the globe who are unanimous in their belief that it is the only CAD system for them.

 

Visualization

 

Unlike other CAD programs that require co-ordinates to design, AllyCAD allows you to visualize your design before having to do the critical final design work. You may design using geometry lines, which means that you design as an engineer or designer would conceptually.

 

Geometry lines are a superset of construction lines. They allow you to define layout, position lines and arcs tangential to each other, and allow you to define the basic layout of the drawing elements. You then simply fill in with solid lines to create the objects.

 

Toolkits

 

The program contains five Specialized Toolkits that include:

  • Architectural: This toolkit includes exciting optimized routines to draw building plans, elevations and sections.

 

  • Civil Engineering: The Civil Engineering Toolkit speeds up the drawing of sewer captures and cut and fill bank lines.
     

  • Mechanical Engineering: The Mechanical Engineering Toolkit takes the tedium out of drawing bolts, nuts, drill and tap holes, and screws.

 

  • Structural Engineering: The Structural Engineering Toolkit includes a full library of I-beams and H-beams that allows it to draw hot or cold rolled steel sections with ease.
     

  • Surveyors: The Surveyor Toolkit contains six clever tools that will save you loads of time. Whether you are generating SG Diagrams, General Plans, inserting street names or just drawing a True North sign, the right tool is there for you.

 

Attributes

 

This solid heavyweight program is universally regarded as robust and reliable. It is easy to learn and even easier to use, resulting in a high productivity that is realized through its short learning curve and super user-friendly operation.

 

In addition to this, the package is compatible with major software packages in the market and has minimal downtime through its reliability and power. AllyCAD has five specialized toolkits and one general toolkit that enables you to access essential functionality for general as well as specific disciplines. These toolkits have been designed in order to speed up your design tasks for a speedy output.

 

The product is also backed by ongoing product development, a dedicated support and training team and regular communications that provides up to date information on the latest AllyCAD news, so that you will derive maximum benefit when using this world-class program!

 

SUPPORT

 

Although the month of Christmas is usually synonymous with many festive moments, it is also unfortunately a time when the incidence of crime tends to rise. We would therefore like to urge you to ensure your software at its full replacement value in order to prevent the unforeseen circumstance of theft. The theft of your security modules will mean the loss of your license, which you will have to replace at your own expense, should this be uninsured. Remember to take care over the festive season!

Reknown - Customer Showcase


CUSTOMER

SHOWCASE
 

A first OF ITS KIND
 

When farmers in the Moamba/Sabie district of the province of Maputo visited the Nkomazi area in Mpumalanga, they were greatly impressed by the activities and success of these small-scale sugar cane farmers. From this visit an idea was born to work together to develop a similar project in the district of Moamba, creating the first seeds that led to the establishment of COFAMOSA.
