NordCAD™ is our CAD-based tool to assist with designing Nordfab ductwork installations. NordCAD allows a CAD user to place 2D illustrations of Nordfab QF Ducting and Flanged Ducting components into a CAD drawing.
NordCAD 3.2AX is updated to allow users to import a BOM that can be used with Nordfab’s quoting and ordering tool for Nordfab Authorized Dealers. NordCAD users can export a Bill of Material that can be imported into Nordfab’s quoting tool to generate a quick quote for the materials listed in the Bill of Material.
