South African Rand in your Favour

CAUSING OUR SOFTWARE TO BE HIGHLY COMPETITIVELY PRICED
AllyCAD is experiencing a huge increase in software sales due to the weakening Rand. We are hitting our quarterly targets in just 2 months instead of 3, and we have firmly exited any recession period of slow growth and are starting to boom!

Our local clients benefit from not having to pay higher prices, and our international clients are having a field day at being able to buy our software at a cheaper rate due to the Rand's value... it's a win win situation for all! To get your Subscription up to date or to purchase more copies of AllyCAD, please email us.


Feature Focus

AllyCAD Control Centre   IMPROVED: CONTROL CENTRE FOR EASY ACCESS & INTERACTION
The Control Centre gives you quick and easy access to view and interact with blocks, line types, text styles, layers and objects in a drawing through a central interface.



Get TURN add-on for AllyCAD

TURN VEHICLE SIMULATION
TURN is an add-on which you can purchase for your MICRO, SME or Professional AllyCAD software. TURN provides dynamic and interactive simulation for low speed turning manoeuvres along a specified tracking path which includes cars, trucks, articulated vehicles, trailers, commercial aircraft and forklifts. Easy track path definition and creation with smallest turning circle calculation.

"The Observatory Business Park was designed with the help of TURN. We wanted to ensure that the large delivery trucks could drive through the traffic circles of the business park with ease." Peter Wium, De Villiers Sheard, Cape Town

"Even when designing a shopping centre these days, you need to see where the trucks can turn to get in and out of the loading yards." Hannes Kotze, ZII, Cape Town

To purchase TURN for AllyCAD please visit the TURN page on our AllyCAD website.
