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.
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
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.
The program contains five Specialized Toolkits
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.
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!
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!
