HighDesign Pro delivers an extensive set of tools and features aimed specifically at architectural design. Whether you're an architect, a civil engineer, a constructor or a contractor, HighDesign Pro will help you effectively achieve your designs within a familiar CAD environment and a BIM-like workflow.

The following features are available in HighDesign Pro:

Design with Building Elements

Basic and Compound Walls

With HighDesign Pro, you can easily insert solid or compound, parametric walls into your project that automatically connect and rebuild.

Columns & Pillars

Insert round columns and rectangular pillars with a single click. Create structural grids with auto-alignment and offsets.

Windows

Choose from a range of window families and define reveal, frame sizes and options. The level of detail adjusts with the representation scale.

Doors

Insert swinging, double, pocket, sliding and more door families. Define opening side and direction with a click.

Organize the Project

Sheets, Details & Layouts

Tackle the complexity of a design project with a clean, efficient organization. HighDesign Pro offers drafting sheets, details with callout and in-project navigation, views and layouts. You are in control all the time.

Styles & Element Types

Make your projects more efficient by standardizing common elements into styles and types. When an element is styled, it is immediately grouped with all the other elements of the same style.

Project Views

A Project View is a snapshot of the current view that stores position, zoom and the current visibility of sheets and layers.

Document the Project

Extensive Project Information

Complete your project with associated non-graphical data, such as information about the firm, the client, building location, and more.

Viewports & Title Blocks

To publish your project on layout sheets you insert 'viewports', that is windows onto parts of the project. Add a title block to the sheet and have it filled automatically with information extracted from the sheet and the project.

Element Information & Tags

Building elements include non-graphical information such as name, tag and description that can be displayed by Tag annotations.

Exchange and Publish

Extended DXF/DWG®

Open DXF and DWG® drawings and retain the original document structure with model and layouts. Extract blocks from drawings to extend the symbol library and re-use existing drawings.

Publish to PDF

Export single- or multiple-page vector PDF documents. You can export a PDF book of the layouts, define custom sizes, apply color filters, and more.

Customize Your Workspace

Templates

Create new projects starting from predefined models that can include colors, layers, sheets, page sizes, units, linetypes, objects, and more.

Customizable Shortcuts

Use the Shortcuts pane to set and customize the keyboard shortcuts for almost all commands of the HighDesign menus.

Flexible Sidebar and Panels

Customize the workspace to suit your habits and needs. Drag panels on and off the sidebar to make the most of screen space, or collapse the sidebar to maximize the drawing area.
