What is PlumbingCAD®?

PlumbingCAD is a drawing based software for the design and sizing of residential plumbing systems. Currently in a new development phase, the next generation of PlumbingCAD will include many enhancements to build on it's successful initial release. Contact us for additional details.

PlumbingCAD Overview

A true CAD-based software, PlumbingCAD lets you quickly draw floorplans and design the detailed plumbing system. Piping lines are automatically generated to connect the fixtures to the manifolds or mains, and at the same time the integrated hydraulic calculations automatically size the piping using industry-accepted methods. You also get 3-D views instantly as you draw your design in 2-D. This makes it much easier to visualize and communicate your design work, and the detailed reports and drawing printouts greatly assist with approvals and installations.

PlumbingCAD is easy to learn and previous CAD experience is not required. View the Onscreen Demo for a quick introduction.

PlumbingCAD is a completely stand-alone program, but it is also AutoCAD* compatible. Quickly create your own floor plan drawings in just minutes, or easily import an existing AutoCAD drawing to use as your template. Regardless of the method you use, you can print copies of your completed work or export it to AutoCAD or PDF** files.

PlumbingCAD is an essential productivity tool for your PEX plumbing system design work.
