Good news: Access to 3-D BIM CAD models will now be even more comfortable! In December 2016 the native HiCAD format SZA (introduced with Version 2011) was made available on the platform by CADENAS. Users can now access 3-D BIM CAD models via the Internet at and import them to HiCAD, where they can be processed further.

Our Major Release 2017 will allow direct access to the product catalogue from HiCAD. 3-D BIM CAD models can be imported rapidly and easily to HiCAD by Drag & Drop. This easy way of access spares you a lot of time that would otherwise be spent on searching for the right model, and increases the productivity of your Engineering department.

In contrast to neutral formats, native formats offer additional, smart designing functions, ensuring an optimal use of components without any rework in HiCAD.
