pon cad scaffolding, how it works

How it works

1. OPEN YOUR PLAN
With PON CAD it is possible to design freely, from a 2D/3D plan or even from a conveniently elaborated image.

3d scaffolding modules preview
2. DEVELOP 2D MODULES
By tracing the perimeter, PON CAD creates volumetric modules that represent the scaffold. It is possible to modify them and to change the specific characteristics.

3. DEVELOP SCAFFOLDING
A simple command allows you to develop the scaffold in every detail. It is possible to modify and integrate each article both with CAD commands and PON CAD commands.

4. BILL OF MATERIAL
PON CAD elaborates precise bills of material divided into work phases with advantages for the preparation of quotations, the planning of the warehouse and transport. The lists are generated in TXT, Word, Excel (also Open Office), CSV and HTML.

5. LAYOUT
The technical documentation can be created with few clicks using either the standard CAD commands or the powerful automatic wizard.
You can define sections, views and details for the assembling schemes.

6. RENDERING / VIDEO
PON CAD supports different levels of graphical details from the wireframe filiform to 3D solids with which it is possible to generate rendering and video presentation reports for commercial output.

pon cad software plugin

No subscription required: once you buy PON CAD, it is yours forever!

pon cad solutions standalone tool or plugin

PON CAD can be supplied together with BricsCAD as a single package.
This solution called PON CAD SMART is a software package, which does not require AutoCAD matching high performance with intuitive user interface (UI) and excellent user experience (UX).

PON CAD comes also as a plug-in.
If you already own a CAD, you can buy PON CAD as a Plug-in at a lower price. In this case it is necessary to have either AutoCAD (version 2013 or higher) or BricsCAD (version 15PRO or higher) installed. This option allows you to speed drawing procedures and keep the working environment you are used to.

Operating system: Windows
The files generated by PON CAD software are very small, therefore do not require particular hardware requirements, only the same requirements for Autocad or BricsCad 3D.


pon cad open standard formats

OPEN FORMATS

MEC CAD sw standard open formats

PON CAD is a highly compatible software and uses standard CAD Blocks DWG.
It exports files and reports in open standard formats (Dwg, Csv, Txt, Xml, Html, Ifc), making it possible to handle them independently with other software, facilitating interactions with other collaborators.
It is possible to export to BIM with IFC format thanks to the combination of PON CAD with BricsCad BIM.


Pon Cad Multi language software

PON CAD is available in the following languages:

  • English
  • Italian
  • Spanish
  • French
  • German
  • Portuguese

Other languages upon request.
It is also possible to create and customize new languages in the database independently.

Units supported: mm, cm, m, inch, ft.

CUSTOMIZATION

The use of open formats allows the designer to develop and update their own libraries/database independently. We offer dedicated training courses in this regard.

If you’d prefer MEC CAD to develop a new library on behalf of your company, our technicians will do it based on the technical information provided. Contact us for this service.
