Overview

FRAMECAD® Detailer represents the best in detailing software, and has been designed with ease of user ability in mind.

Simply enter the dimensions and type of frame you require and FRAMECAD Detailer will convert the information into detailed framing plans. The software enables users to automatically transfer design information from architectural detail into framing layout, then on to production.

The 3D view means the framing can be shown in a virtual walk-through format to help customers visualise the design and for drafts people to check for design errors in order to eliminate on-site correction time. The powerful automated tools make detailing roofs, dimensions, walls and polygons quick and easy. FRAMECAD Detailer can be used in multiple languages.
