The hyper-efficient way of doing your planning work
DokaCAD 8 is extremely user-friendly
New ribbons (multi-function bars) replace menus and toolbars. There is a new quick-access panel that you can configure with the commands you need most frequently. The "undo" function works over several steps.
Tooltips optimise handling and are rounded out by the Help feature plus comprehensive e-learning contents.
The 'Rename blocks' function enable you to select and rename existing AutoCAD blocks.
You can rename either all blocks with the same name or only the selected block.
The 'Insert as block' AutoCAD function has been modified so that at the end a dialogue opens and you can enter a block name.
In the following systems, 4 pcs. Framax transport bolt have been added as a supplementary (= automatically listed in the bill of materials in every project of the system in question).
All these new solutions are plannable in the automatic and interactive modes.
Framax Xlife plus framed panels can be ordered with custom widths in all standard heights. For technical production reasons, these custom panels are divided into four width categories:
For DokaScaff some assemblies are now available as modular system blocks to ensure that the needed heights and widths can be put together easily and quickly.
You have to set 'Favourites' in the appropriate systems in order to use them in our planning programmes.
Form-tie solutions with head anchors are now available for the following systems:
The basic panel heights have been extended to include 1.35m, 2.70m and 3.30m.
'Hinged outside corner A galvanised' and 'Hinged inside corner I galvanised'
The 'Create 3D' command creates a three-dimensional model from a DokaCAD layout. In early versions it was a surface model. With the latest update the 'Create 3D' command creates a solid model (3D solid). The advantages of solid models include, for example: It can be cut with 3D commands and windows and doors are shown as such.
The 3S basic and 3S cut formwork sheets are available in the floor formwork systems
Efficient, programme-aided cycle planning. The result can be controlled and influenced by input parameters The cycles are visualised and you can subsequently make whichever changes you wish in an interactive dialogue.
The second generation of Framax Xlife plus is available in DokaCAD
Similar to Dokadek 30 you can now also plan Dokadek 20 with DokaCAD.
The accessory systems 'Counter railing - Edge protection system XP' and 'Counter railing - Handrail post 1.10m' are now available for the following systems:
For the formwork systems Frami Xlife and Frami eco, formwork solutions up to a height of 6 m are now available.
The formwork system Frami eco has been extended to include the basic panel height of 2.70 m.
The following systems now include corner solutions with the models 'hinged outside corner A galvanised' and 'hinged inside corner I galvanised':
This programme extension supports copying of structure and formwork (wall, floor and platform) between two DokaCAD projects.
The formwork sheeting types 3S top, basic, cut have been added to the following wizards:
In the following wizards the user interface has been revised:
DokaCAD is the powerful planning system for increased efficiency and planning cases. It combines fast, automated formwork planning with the flexibility of a CAD system.
Updates are available for download. This includes a complete setup. It is recommended that you uninstall the existing version of the programme, and then install the current setup.
You can email questions about installation and authorisation to ESS@doka.com. For questions about how to use the programme, please use the built-in Help function. For questions regarding formwork technology and individual training offerings, please contact the Applications Engineering dept. at your nearest Doka branch.
DokaCAD stores the data in the AutoCAD drawing (.dwg) format. It can read its data from the current version and previous versions. This applies to max. two version levels before the current version.
DokaCAD is based on AutoCAD, so a good knowledge of AutoCAD is needed. The user interface makes use of terms that are common in the construction and formwork-engineering fields, so it is obviously an advantage to have technical knowledge in these areas. The same goes for basic skills in Microsoft Windows.
You can call up a Help box for every menu item and dialogue.
Article prices are subject to change and depend on the country and currency. In addition, rental offers, for example, will depend on additional factors such as the length of the rental. To get an offer for a project that you have planned with Tipos-Doka, please contact your nearest Doka branch. DokaCAD project files can be read in electronically at all Doka branches as the basis for an offer.
Basically, it should be stated in advance that every programme module has its own serial number and must be authorised by a separate code. The authorisation is based on the Handshake procedure, i.e. the authorisation code is sent on request.
