Setting no limitations on drawing schemes and complexity, FOR CAD offers an integrated solution for :
FOR CAD is always supplied with two set of Formworks libraries equipment (see picture below) to which can be added the catalogues/libraries of the main Formworks producers that are our customers.
The customer can ask MEC CAD to develop additional Formwork libraries on his behalf starting from technical drawings and relevant information.
FOR CAD is a parametric software that can design vertical and horizontal (slabs) modular panel of any Formworks Brand and Model.
FOR CAD is an freeware Plug-in for AutoCAD or BricsCAD,
it works with AutoCAD 3D (version 2012 or newer) or BricsCAD PRO (version 16 or newer).
FOR CAD software is supplied:
Do you have a different Formwork type?

The strength of FOR CAD is the possibility to design formworks by working “PHASES” that allows to optimize the quantity of materials in building site.
The software provides an integrated and effective solution for managing working phases. It is therefore possible to plan, already in the design phase, the complex optimization of reuse and material rotation.
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 all its details. The development can be conditioned to the availability of 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 warehouse, transport and construction management. The bills are generated in: TXT, Word, Excel, CSV and HTML.
The technical documentation can be created in few clicks with the 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 the other way, from 2D to 3D.
6. 2D WORKING DRAWING
FOR CAD allows you to process precise executive drawings in few simple steps in 2D mode.
The generation of front and side elevations is automatic starting from the 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 of adopting open standard formats (dwg) which ensures a complete integration with other softwares.
FOR CAD software is an open system.
It exports its files and reports 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 adoption of open formats allows the customer to develop and 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 starting from the technical information provided.
