The proven and future-proof 2D solution for construction and reinforcement based on AutoCAD®
SOFiCAD is your cost-effective 2D solution for all the challenges associated with reinforcement design in civil engineering.
The wide range of applications covers all building typologies and allows efficient project planning and the implementation of reinforcement for both building construction and civil engineering projects. Thanks to proven SOFiCAD functionalities, not only smaller projects but also complex and extensive reinforcement projects can be processed quickly and reliably.
As a proven but future-proof 2D CAD solution, alongside the necessary tools for traditional 2D reinforcement planning and common working methods such as 3D formwork / 2D reinforcement, SOFiCAD also offers ideal expansion options with SOFiSTiK's 3D solutions for an easy entry into the world of BIM and all the advantages of seamless processes.
SOFiCAD is available to you both as a modularly expandable solution in the subscription model and
as a purchase solution with an integrated AutoCAD® OEM core (SOFiCAD OEM / SOFiCAD OEM ALL).
SOFiCAD offers the security of one of the most successful solutions for reinforcement planning on the German market.

As well as being a traditional 2D CAD solution, SOFiCAD also keeps all doors open to the digital future of reinforcement design. SOFiCAD can be easily combined with our 3D solutions in the Revit environment, paving the way for seamless BIM processes or the 3D formwork / 2D reinforcement working method.
With SOFiCAD, the beginning and end of information utilization takes place in accordance with the BIM concept, which not only focuses on the processing of graphic content, but also on the continuous and consistent utilization of information. In this respect, 2D can also be "BIM". Reinforcement specifications can be imported directly from the SOFiSTiK FEM solutions. Once the reinforcement planning has been completed, it can be checked whether the required reinforcement proportions have been implemented in the reinforcement plans. SOFiCAD therefore not only creates additional security, but also increases the quality of your reinforcement designs and takes the first step towards BIM.
Thanks to BIM-based results, the transition from the planning to the construction phases is pioneering when required and allows you to make consistent use of the results for a smooth transition between planning and production.
SOFiCAD can be combined with other solutions from the SOFiSTiK product family at any time. Especially in the area of reinforcement planning, the 3D solution SOFiSTiK Reinforcement creates a smooth transition to fully-digital reinforcement planning and working in line with BIM methodology.
SOFiCAD is a cost-efficient solution for 2D reinforcement. For detailed information on prices and conditions for SOFiCAD, please contact our sales team at firstname.lastname@example.org .
