DDS-CAD

Design, calculate and document in 2D-CAD and 3D-BIM


DDS-CAD software for MEP

DDS-CAD is the best software to design, calculate and document your complete building services in 2D-CAD and 3D-BIM. For engineers and consultants. For small and large projects. We make BIM-software available for every MEP-engineer!


With DDS-CAD you can

  • Design complete MEP systems
  • Perform MEP calculations
  • Create designs, reports and parts lists
  • Detect and prevent design errors
  • Save time with many automatic functions

Standalone and modular

DDS-CAD is developed completely inhouse, a 3rd party platform is not required. DDS-CAD runs fully stand alone. You do not need to pay for modules, functions or features that you do not need thanks to its flexible modular structure.


Single solution for CAD and BIM

No need to use platforms like AutoCAD and Revit at the same time. With DDS-CAD you draft and produce traditional DWG or PDF output, or seamlessly collaborate in an Open BIM workflow exchanging models using IFC with one single software application.


Minimize errors, optimize results

Integrated clash prevention and detection features allow for transparent multidisciplinary coordination. The integrated calculations ensure that optimized building requirements and systems designs are achieved.

The power of DDS-CAD

Do you engineer or install MEP systems? Then there is a good chance that you are using different tools for designing in 2D or 3D, drafting installations and calculating them. Save time, money and improve the quality of your work; DDS-CAD offers all in one.

Benefits of DDS-CAD

  • IFC certified
  • Standalone solution
  • User-friendly interface
  • Easy and quick to learn
  • Integrated calculations
  • Modular and scalable

“To provide the best possible solution for installation technology, we continuously provide DDS-CAD with even more intelligence. Thanks to smart innovations and automated functions, DDS-CAD will radically simplify your daily drawing, design and documentation tasks.”

Rainer Walser, Product Manager - Data Design System


New features - Stepping up

That’s digital design easier, faster, and more powerful. With new functions for planning electrical and HVAC systems, as well as particularly user-friendly project management tools to accelerate your work processes significantly. In addition there are consistent expansions in the BIM features. Read more about the highlights of the new features below.


Distribution board management at its best

In DDS-CAD 16 we have made the distribution board manager even more user-friendly. For instance you can now insert distribution boards into the model via drag and drop. Additionally the dialog is directly linked to the circuit list and the properties window. That’s efficient distribution board management!


Mirroring everything

We have developed the mirror function even further in DDS-CAD 16. In addition to electrical components, you can now also mirror cable ladders, conduits and cable trunkings. The components always maintain standard compliant representation, so you can equip identical rooms - such as apartment buildings or hotels - in a flash.


Quick and easy from one storey to the next

With DDS-CAD 16 you can smoothly continue HVAC systems as they move from one floor to the next. Pipe or duct dimensions, insulation thickness, and flow direction are clearly displayed. If you copy a system to another level, DDS-CAD automatically connects the storey ports.


Cooling load calculation: All in one

When calculating cooling loads with DDS-CAD 16 you have the entire project in view at all times. Our revised calculation function maps all the necessary parameters in a single dialog. This means: perfect overview, direct access and, if required, rapid result checking.


High-quality objects from external files

If you want to build up your own product database, DDS-CAD 16 is the tool of choice. From Assimp, to IFC, and Revit files, you can select the file format for creating objects almost freely. At the same time DDS-CAD 16 makes it easy to import objects from the BIMobject® database, or from a file.
