Vectorworks ConnectCAD

ConnectCAD is an add-on that runs within Vectorworks.

Designed by an electrical engineer specialising in the design of audio and television control rooms, ConnectCAD allows users to draw wiring diagrams which can be easily changed. Component lists and cable lists are all generated in Vectorworks worksheets.

The programme integrates totally with Vectorworks which means racks can be placed in a room drawn to scale in Vectorworks and then presented in 3D.

In addition to the design of audio visual related systems, ConnectCAD can handle virtually any electrical design work. The system is ideal for designing computer networks within a building.
