CAD software enhanced

November 11, 2008

MultiSUITE Software says its structural detailing products have been enhanced to fully utilize the improved drafting environment offered by AutoCAD® 2009. For users without full AutoCAD licenses, the company's stand-alone product, MultiSUITE CAD, which is built on AutoCAD OEM Technology, has also been revised.

Features such as steel cloning in MultiSTEEL and simplified bar creation in MultiREBAR help simplify the software and increase detailing efficiency. The software also includes an upgraded user interface, enhanced visualization through new features such as the Steering Wheel, and the ability to quickly preview drawings with thumbnail images.

According to the manufacturer, the software combines the MultiSUITE structural tools with AutoCAD OEM Technology and enhances 3-D structural modeling, 2-D steel drafting, and reinforced concrete detailing.
