Company Profile

CAD-PLAN was founded in 1989 with the objective of providing a specially tailored CAD system for designers and planners in the fields of metal construction and facade technology. Since then, CAD-PLAN has been growing steadily and today is one of the most innovative and internationally orientated companies in the CAD sector for metal construction and facade technology. Thanks to its functionality and high operating comfort, the core product ATHENA has become established as the most successful CAD solution for facade construction. ATHENA is independent of profile systems and can be matched to individual needs.

2020 we published a new Software called APOLLON. APOLLON is a full parametric 3D CAD / modeling software for Façade- and Curtain Wall design. Mullion-Transom-, Unitized- or Free-Form facades, all of them works. It covers the steps from building the model to production plans, part lists and CNC output for the machine. As a “standalone” product, APOLLON is the ideal complement to ATHENA and contains Autodesk Inventor®.

2021 we launched the PDM/DMS System CRONOSCRONOS integrates perfectly with APOLLON, ATHENA, AutoCAD, and Inventor.

Products & Information

APOLLON

APOLLON is a full parametric 3D CAD / modeling software for Façade- and Curtain Wall design. Mullion-Transom-, Unitized- or Free-Form façades, all of them work. The software covers the steps from building the model to production plans, part lists and CNC output for the machine. As a “standalone” product, APOLLON is the ideal complement to ATHENA and contains Autodesk Inventor®.

Façades or Curtain Walls can usually be designed easily and efficiently with ATHENA (CAD software for Façade construction based on AutoCAD®). Details in 2D, Models in 3D. With ATHENA can this be done easily and efficiently.

If the façade project is very complex and/or varied, however, full parametric software can be useful. This is where APOLLON comes into play. A parametric 3D modeling of a façade or unitized façade can be done perfectly.

APOLLON is profile system-independent, but does not contain any profile master-data (except a small sample database). The profile master-data will be generated as project data during the design process. Advantage: Changes to the profile data, e.g. because of static requirements, are straightforward to make. The master data grows from time to time.

ATHENA

ATHENA – the AutoCAD application for curtain wall design and facade engineering.

Matched exactly to our users’ requirements, ATHENA is a complete CAD software package, offering practically everything to simplify the daily design tasks which confront the designer:

  • 2D design: a 2D drawing environment with practical routines and libraries for producing elevations, cross-sections and workshop drawings.
  • 3D design: a versatile 3D design section with the possibility of generating parts lists and production drawings automatically from a 3D design.
  • Engineering: powerful computational tools for structural analysis and building physics.
  • Sheet editing: a sheet editing program for sheet design and development.

In addition, ATHENA is independent of profile systems and can be matched to individual needs. Ideal for international design, ATHENA labels all the customer objects fully automatically and can translate a drawing into each of the 10 languages currently contained in ATHENA at the press of a key.

ATHENA is available in two editions:

  • ATHENA for AutoCAD: ATHENA as an add-on to AutoCAD.
  • ATHENA Complete: Stand-alone solution with a fully integrated AutoCAD.

ATHENA is fully BIM-enabled via the IFC interface. Using the interface it is possible to transfer ATHENA 3D facade models to BIM programs, e.g., Autodesk Revit to carry out collision checks with other project subsections.
