You can choose between 9 different language versions of the programme.

You can interactively intervene in the planning programme whenever you wish, in order to incorporate changed conditions on the site into planning.

  • After forming, the structure can be modified, deleted or expanded.
  • Ground plans, sections, photos and texts from other programmes can be integrated without difficulty.
  • Several Tipos-Doka programmes can be open at the same time.

Frequently Asked Questions

What versions of Tipos-Doka are there?
  • Demo version: The demo version is the same as the full version except that the Print, Save and Clipboard functions are deactivated.
  • Full version: Is activated by the authorisation code. We will send you the authorisation code after you register.
  • Updates within a version (e.g. from version 8.0.3 to 8.0.8) use the same authorisation code.
What is Tipos-Doka particularly good at?

Tipos-Doka is especially suitable for fast planning of system formwork. Ideal for foremen planning the next day's forming operations, as well as for staff in scheduling departments. As Tipos-Doka also takes account of quantities when doing the planning, this also helps with the logistics. Formwork solutions for which there is not sufficient equipment on the site will not be included in the plan.

How do I update my version?

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.

Where can I get help if I have a problem?

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 formwork-engineering questions, please contact the Applications Technology Dept. at your nearest Doka branch.

What file formats can Tipos-Doka handle?

Tipos-Doka can open Tipos-Doka project files from the current and previous versions. This applies to max. two version levels before the current version. It can also import layouts from DXF files, and has a wide range of filtering functions for the geometrical elements to be imported. The layout can then be either redrawn or directly imported.

Do I need any special prior knowledge in order to use Tipos-Doka?

Tipos-Doka plans Doka formwork, but it is an easy-to-use Windows programme. 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. To help you get started working in Tipos-Doka quickly and efficiently, we recommend the courses organised by Doka.

Why are there no article prices in Tipos-Doka?

Item 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. Tipos-Doka project files can be read in electronically at all Doka branches as the basis for an offer.

How long will I continue to receive support for version 7?

Support for version 7 was discontinued on December 31, 2015.
