PROCAD Releases SpoolCAD V2 Pipe Fabrication Drafting Software
SpoolCAD is a spec-driven drafting software designed to increase productivity for industrial pipe fabricators. With its robust features, it speeds up drafting and reduces costly errors through transparent input compliance checking.
SpoolCAD V2 builds on the success of its first release in October of 2012. As a result of continued consultation with industrial pipe fabricators, PROCAD is delivering new tools to boost drafting productivity and improve fabrication processes. SpoolCAD is a complete spool drafting package with included CAD platform.
Here’s a quote by a SpoolCAD user on his experience with the software: “SpoolCAD has provided Target with a comprehensive spec-driven fabrication spool drafting solution with complete BOM and weld listing functionality. SpoolCAD is more adaptable than other programs we have used for this and I believe this software would be a good fit for any pipe fabricator.”
The new version offers a brand new module and a long list of new features, including:
- New Shop Settings Manager module to customize weld and fabrication settings
- Function to add up spool weights
- Quick count of total weld diameter-inches
- Ability to define weld gaps by individual pipe size
- Option to include or exclude weld gaps when dimensioning
- Customizable weld list table
- Choice of weld ID tags
- Addition of heat numbers in the BOM
