FOR CAD offers an integrated solution for:
FOR CAD is supplied with two basic sets of Formwork libraries equipment (see picture below).
FOR CAD is a parametric software that can design vertical and horizontal (slabs) modular panels of any Formwork Brand and Model.
Do you have a different Formwork type?
Ask additional libraries compatible with FOR CAD to your Formwork Supplier.
Customers can request MEC CAD to develop additional Formwork libraries on their behalf. These libraries are based on the technical drawings and relevant information provided by the customer.*

FOR CAD is a FREE Plug-in for AutoCAD and BricsCAD
compatible with AutoCAD 3D (version 2013 or newer) or BricsCAD PRO (version 16 or newer).
FOR CAD software is supplied:
The strength of FOR CAD is the possibility of designing formworks by working “PHASES”. This feature allows the optimization of the material in the building site.
The software provides an integrated and effective solution for the management of phases. Therefore, it is possible to plan and optimise the reusability and rotation of materials during designing.
1. OPEN YOUR PLAN
With FOR CAD it is possible to draw freely or starting from a 2D and 3D planimetry.
2. DEVELOP FORMWORKS 3D
A simple command allows the formwork to be developed in every detail. The project can be conditioned by the articles available at the warehouse and to the already defined phases. It is always possible to change every detail.
3. BILLS OF MATERIAL
FOR CAD elaborates precise bills of material, providing accurate reports useful for the management of warehouse, transport and construction sites. The BOMs are generated in TXT, Word, Excel, CSV and HTML formats.
The technical documentation is created in few clicks with standard CAD commands or with the powerful automatic wizards. You can define sections, views, and details for assembling schemes.
5. FROM 3D TO 2D AND VICEVERSA
A simple click allows you to switch from 3D mode -ideal for bills and presentations- to 2D -optimal for the realization of executive drawings. It is also possible to do otherwise, from 2D to 3D.
6. 2D WORKING DRAWING
FOR CAD allows you to process precise executive drawings with simple steps in 2D mode.
The generation of front and side elevations is automatic, starting from plan view.

The only requirement is to use the Windows operating system.
The files generated by MEC CAD software are always small and, therefore, do not require particular hardware requirements, which are the same for both Autocad and BricsCAD 3D.
The FOR CAD versatility derives from the choice of using the powerful CAD design engine and from adopting open standard formats (dwg) which ensures a complete integration with other software.
FOR CAD software is an open system.
Exportation files and reports are only in open standard formats (Dwg, Csv, Txt, Xml, Html, Ifc), making it possible to process them independently with other software and facilitating interactions with other collaborators.
The use of open formats allows the customer to maintain their own libraries/database independently. In this regard, we offer dedicated training courses.
MEC CAD can also develop, on behalf of the company, a new library based on the technical information provided.
