ConnectCAD Releases 2017 Version of Software


connectCAD, the connected systems design tool for Vectorworks, just released its 2017 version. Famous among AV designers around the world, connectCAD expedites work flow from concept drawings, layouts and schematics to reports and bill of materials.

New features of connectCAD 2017 include a revamped Device Builder that enables the AV community worldwide to share device details by uploading or retrieving device data from connectCAD’s online repository; new Cable Labels Setup feature that allows designers to create cable labels as simple or as complicated as needed, and make print-ready worksheets with colour-coded Cable Numbers for easy visibility; and the Convert Report to List command, which 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 is available in English & German. Each license includes a free upgrade for the next version of Vectorworks plus one year of Level 1 support.
