connectCAD 2017: Audiovisual CAD for the Real World

connectCAD2017 for Vectorworks

connectCAD 2017 is released. The systems design tool for Vectorworks, connectCAD is famous among AV designers around the world.
connectCAD expedites your work flow from concept drawings, layouts and schematics to reports and bill of materials, cutting down design time by half and avoiding costly mistakes.

As designer Max Conwell from Naked Eye Lighting describes, “connectCAD is a real bonus for me. It’s pretty intuitive, easy to make a device and easy to link devices, and obviously beyond there you can put in your own connector types and signal types and expand from there. I produce a connectCAD data plan which shows pretty much what we’re doing in every show, it is always in the drawing file and it just saves a lot of problems and a lot of time.”

connectCAD 2017 revolutionizes the Device Builder and enables the AV community worldwide to share device details by uploading or retrieving device data from connectCAD’s online repository, considerably reducing the work of reading spec sheets and entering data.

With the new Cable Labels Setup feature, designers can easily create cable labels as simple or as complicated as needed, and make print-ready worksheets with colour-coded Cable Numbers for easy visibility.

The Convert Report to List command, converts Vectorworks database worksheets to spreadsheets; to ‘freeze’ a cable list at a particular point in the design process or to create a list suitable to compare with a drawing or to regenerate a drawing from the list.

connectCAD 2017 allows more precision, speed, and convenience in connected system design.

connectCAD is available in English & German. Each license includes a free upgrade for the next version of Vectorworks plus one year of Level 1 support.
