The ISD Software und Systeme GmbH is a leading developer of CAD, PDM/PLM and product configuration software. Our software solutions HiCAD, HELiOS and HELiCON are the ideal tools for engineering process optimisation.
Our website provides you with all essential information about our company, our products and our services. One mouse click will take you to the topic you are interested in, whether industry solutions, product information or our company profi
Whether mechanical engineering, plant engineering, sheet metal processing, steel or metal engineering – each industry has its own, specific requirements. With HiCAD we can provide you with a unique all-in-one solution allowing a fast and efficient development of products in 2-D, 3-D and for any industry. Even cross-sectoral projects involving different industries can be realised effortlessly.
Thanks to its Hybrid Technology for the realisation of complex, cross-sectoral projects, HiCAD is the only CAD system in the world that does not only offer combined designing in 2-D and 3-D, but also the complete range of industry and product data management functions within one system, thus covering all crucial fields of engineering: Mechanical engineering, plant engineering, sheet metal processing, turnkey solutions for steel engineering, glass, metal and facade engineering. This enormous range was made possible by our self-developed software kernel, which provides the basis for innovative 2-D and 3-D CAD technologies throughout all fields of industry. With HiCAD you will therefore be ideally equipped for your future projects, no matter how complex they are.
Our CAD developments are geared towards “Smart Design”, i.e. a constant support of our users by powerful tools and intelligent automatisms. This enables you to streamline routine tasks, realise your innovative ideas much faster and visualise them in a promotionally effective manner. You can, for instance, display your products as rendered models, 3D-PDF models or in stereoscopic 3-D representation. HiCAD’s unique 2-D/3-D associativity also provides a solid and secure basis for a smooth changeover from 2-D to 3-D CAD.
HiCAD provides you with maximum flexibility: You can design your product model directly in 3-D, and derive 2-D production drawings from it. Or you can initially draw in 2-D, then add 3-D objects and automatically convert your drawing to a 3-D model. Use non-parametric modelling for quick corrections, or the parametric approach to be able to perform design changes at the push of a button.
HiCAD supports you with state-of-the-art 2-D drafting functions, innovative 3-D modelling options and special, industry-specific functions, from the first draft and the automatic generation of all production-relevant data through to the realistic visualisation of the models. Numerous, useful tools for re-use and automation help you streamline routine tasks and speed up design processes considerably. The extremely compact data structure ensures smooth designing processes, even for extremely large models.
