Select from our choice of composites, such as the 300mm tray and hangers, and the software will automatically include couplings and supports, and you can quickly select and add parts such as reducers, flat bends and tees, where needed.
With our manufacturer’s parts database, you can choose exactly what you want, select any occurrences of that part on the drawing, and the software will give you an instant list of how many items there are, with the cost included.
The software is intuitive and incredibly easy to use and you can alter the scale to suit, change the view by removing layers so you can see individual parts more clearly, zoom in and out with the mouse wheel, mark up the drawing with text, and even use it as a basic design tool.
