    2015 Feature Focus

    With many new major features soon to be released in the upcoming version, we will keep you up to date with what you can expect. The following is a new feature which has been added in response to client requests.


    The ability to generate production drawings which require minimal CAD editing, is one of the valuable time-saving features which our clients value.

    To build on this feature we have included the means not only to split a drawing window into multiple views and named viewports, but in the 2015 version, it is now also possible to 'step into modelspace' from a layout viewport. This allows you to quickly refine any changes that you may need to make via the viewport, giving you even more efficient control over your final drawing.

    Client Showcase Project

    Matlosana Mall

    KLS Consulting Engineers fulfilled the civil & structural engineering services for the development of Matlosana Mall in Klerksdorp (Northwest Province).

    Technical engineer Johan Malherbe explained that AllyCAD software assisted them to fulfill the design requirements which addressed aesthetic, functional and energy efficient factors. The project also involved the creation of a total of 2,376 parking bays both outside and within basement parking facilities.

    New Tech Tip
    Have you ever wondered how to:
    • Delete unused layers?
    • Reduce the size of a drawing file by removing unused objects and duplicate entities in the drawing?
    • Clean up unused styles or blocks in your drawing?
    One way to do this is to use the Purge function.
