CADS has developed a suite of software designed to complement each other when you are designing foundations. Combine CADS Beam Designer, Pile Cap Designer, Pad Base Designer and Bearing Pile Designer for a comprehensive suite with links to CADS RC for detailing.



CADS RC builds on the industry standard platform AutoCAD. It fully exploits the stable 2D drawing environment of AutoCAD, tailoring a solution for rebar detailing and bar bending scheduling that meets the stringent requirements of the industry.


CADS RC Lite features the regular user interface and essential AutoCAD functionality to make it easy to learn for anyone familiar with AutoCAD. Experienced CADS RC users will find the combination very familiar and will hit the ground running!
