BIM LegoCad is a CAD / BIM modeler, based on an independent Sw. platform, for the assisted design and calculation of precast constructions, simulating all the production processes and installation phases, and bringing productivity and effectiveness to the whole precast process.
External dxf files can be imported. Output is in Pdf, Dwg, IFC, and CAD / CAM (eg Unitechnik, BVBS …).
It is fully integrated with P2000, an ERP management system for precast, made by CSG Engineering, for the complete management of the precast company (Estimation, Operations Planning, Production Management and Cost Control), ensuring the full control of costing and timing of the jobs.
It is available in use licenses; the implementation can take place in steps, one step at a time.
CSG Engineering is the only and exclusive supplier. Development and maintenance is driven by its experienced team of designers, based on the needs of the users.
Advantages of the system
Productivity and effectiveness, reduction of project costs and time, drastic reduction of errors, sharing of all project data, full control of costing and timing of the jobs.
