HighDesign is a comprehensive and efficient Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and architectural design solution that allows you to create accurate drawings, projects, layouts, and work with DWG drawings. Specifically designed to meet the needs of architects, engineers, and design professionals, HighDesign combines advanced tools for technical drawing, project documentation, and design in an elegant, user-friendly and efficiency-centric interface, aimed at assisting the user throughout all stages of the creative process.

With HighDesign, you can draw detailed plans and views using precise snaps, an array of vector tools and editing functions, as well as extensive libraries of symbols, line types, hatches, patterns, and textures. Document your project with stylized texts, annotations, markers, labels, dimensions, and other textual information.

  • Parametric design for creating basic and compound walls, columns and pillars, doors and windows with varying levels of details.
  • Management of multiple layers and sheets with their own drawing scale, units, and page size to handle an entire project in a single document.
  • Addition of named views, styles, and types of construction elements, custom shortcuts, and templates for an efficient workflow that saves time.

The Pro version of HighDesign also includes specialized tools such as 2D photogrammetry for creating scaled and perspective-correct elevations from a single image; image editing functions; a drawing presentation tool for generating high-impact views of your project.

HighDesign streamlines architectural design and project documentation through its efficient, user-friendly interface and advanced drawing tools.

Interoperability features include layouts, windows, title blocks; advanced printing functions with color filters; importing and exporting of DXF/DWG drawings from version R12 to 2018/2020. HighDesign also allows you to publish in PDF and open, insert, and export images in JPEG, TIFF, GIF, PDF, and PNG formats with an alpha channel.

The customizable workspace supports themes, floating palettes, sidebars, context panels, gestures, and includes a radial menu for quick access to the most common functions.
