  • Toolbar quality systems management.
  • The ability to run one or more third party applications.

draPRO 2016 has many routines that enable the designer, detailer and general drafter to produce “Building Services” drawings much more productively. So much so, that a 40% increase in productivity to that of raw AutoCAD has been achieved.

The increased productivity is brought about by automating routines for HVAC, ductwork design and detailing, electrical power, lighting diagrams, communications, data, hydraulic, hot and cold water, sewer and storm water reticulation, isometrics, fire services, sprinkler reticulation and smoke detection.
