DDS-CAD Electrical

DDS-CAD Electrical is the ultimate tool for electrical installers and consultants. With the software you design complete electrical systems for buildings. At the same time, the software is able to produce comprehensive and reliable documentation, suchs as detailed parts lists and plots. Specific features for electrical specializations are also included, for example for designing KNX and lightning protection systems.

Many automatic features provide maximum efficiency. The available product databases include intelligent components, symbols, macros and parametric objects. The integrated calculations and control functions allow you to optimize your designs.

With DDS-CAD you have a tool that allows you to seamlessly work in 2D and 3D at the same time. Whether you want to work in or present your electrical model with a symbolic representation in 2D, or fully rendered in 3D, with DDS-CAD it does not matter.

With DDS-CAD it is possible to automatically generate electrical diagrams from the electrical installation that you have designed. The intelligent distribution board features provides a seamless link between working in a diagram or model view, assuring that each of them is always up to date.
