The hyper-efficient way of doing your planning work
DokaCAD 9 for AutoCAD is extremely user-friendly
Several minor changes in the User Interface of DokaCad for AutoCAD.
This option supports forming “Interactive” without Tipos structure. More details in our Talk - Easy Forming.
Use the additional button [3D] for a quick switch from 2D to 3D.
If you have an in AutoCAD-imported BIM model in form of a 3D solid, you are now able to convert it to a 2D DokaCAD plan. More details in our Talk - Create 2D
The sequence of cycles (pours) can be defined now also in the slabs. All cycles (pours) for walls and slabs can be mixed in chronical order. For the platform there is still only one cycle (pour) available. More details in our Talk - Cycles.
Some useful tools have been implemented:
More details in our Talk - New tools.
Solids can be cut in sections automatically. More details in our Clips - Shaping wood assistant.
In the plan window you can mark additional fixings like e.g. “Framax quick acting clamp RU” or “Framax multi-function clamp” with stars.
DokaCAD for AutoCAD 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 for AutoCAD 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 for AutoCAD 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, please contact your nearest Doka branch. DokaCAD for AutoCAD 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.
