CAD Software

Find the most suitable CAD software solution for your business.

CAD Software

Computer-aided design (CAD) software is technology for design and technical documentation, which replaces manual drafting with an automated process. Used by architects, engineers and construction professionals, CAD software helps its users to design ideas, visualise concepts and simulate how designs will perform in the real world.

Whether you are new to CAD Software or are an experienced user we can help you maximise your technology investment. Here are the main solutions we provide.


Increase your productivity with AutoCAD

AutoCAD, the original software for 3D CAD is engineered for what the future will bring. 
Subscribe to AutoCAD 2020 and get access to specialised toolsets for architecture, mechanical design, 3D mapping, and more, and achieve greater mobility with the new web and mobile apps.


Design, build and maintain higher-quality buildings with Revit 

Revit is CAD software for multi-discipline, collaborative design processes, including features for architectural design, MEP and structural engineering and construction. 

Revit 2019.1 was launched in August 2018. Read about its major enhancements (changes to the interface and closer links to Civil 3D) in our blog post.

“Autodesk Revit software was invaluable in being able to assess the existing space available to insert a new mezzanine level and to co-ordinate the various design team elements before we got to site." Alex Crane, Associate at Chetwoods


Improve project delivery, maintain more consistent data and processes with Autodesk Civil 3D

Autodesk Civil 3D software is a civil engineering design and documentation CAD software solution that supports Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflows on a variety of civil infrastructure project types, including roads and highways, land development, rail, airports, and water.

This CAD software for Civil engineers allows users to:
  • Perform faster design iterations and streamline time-consuming tasks
  • Connect design to documentation to help boost productivity and deliver higher quality
  • Use visualisation, simulation and water analysis tools integrated with the design process to improve project delivery and decision making
  • Collaboration features help you to overcome team co-ordination and workflow challenges within civil infrastructure projects.

“For many years, Excitech have been instrumental in keeping us in touch with the complex world of software licensing. Without their insights, making the right decisions about how to configure our own licensing arrangements would take much longer and we would probably end up over or under-licensed. We trust Excitech to provide us with clear and accurate information to guide our software investment in the future.” Alex Crane – Associate, Chetwoods


Draw easily in 3D with SketchUp Pro

SketchUp Pro is useful from the earliest stages of design to the end of construction.

Suitable for a variety of industries, from Architecture, to Construction, Urban Planning and Interior Design, SketchUp is a powerful and forgiving CAD software solution. 

SketchUp has greatly enhanced our conceptual visualisation process and the way we explore and present concept designs to clients in 3D. It enables us to communicate efficiently and effectively with clients at a much earlier stage and with greater comprehension on their part." Paul Hutt, Director, Glancy Nicholls Architects
