Professional-level A/E/C CADD program for architectural design, photo-realistic rendering, animation, and construction document creation.

DataCAD Users:

DataCAD is a professional-level A/E/C CADD program for architectural design, photo-realistic rendering, animation, and construction document creation. Developed by architects and software engineers for architecture, DataCAD includes tools that make design and drafting easier, such as automatic door and window insertion, associative dimensioning and hatching, automated 3D framing and OpenDWG®-based DXF/DWG translators.  DataCAD is listed as the second most-widely used software by registered architects according to the most recent American Institute of Architects (AIA) firm survey.

CADLine is the sole distributor of the dynamic software, DataCAD. The software is easy to use and enables the user three dimensional (3D) drawings with a switch of a button. As Architects, we have been working on this software in 3D since 1993. From housing to multi storey complexes, DataCAD has proved to be very valuable to our firm.

CADLine offers free On-line support to DataCAD users. One day training courses are presented for Beginners, Intermediate development, and 3D renderings. 3D modelling is taught from the Beginners course, which enables the user to produce elevations and perspective views of their designs.

3D Viewing and Presentation program

o2c_Interactive! allows you to explore design scenarios in 3D, on the fly using the highly-compressed, o2c format.

Since the introduction of O2C (Object To See) Interface, which enables the user to present texture rendered models to their clients via the Internet, DataCAD has become an essential tool in the designer’s office

“DataCAD is a very capable yet easy-to-learn tool. From an architectural standpoint, it allows you to study and evaluate options very quickly, without having to spend a lot of time and money to do it.”


“DataCAD is the only CADD system I have used that has allowed me to design. I haven’t been able to achieve this with other products. For our architectural practice, DataCAD is the only software that bundles everything we need in one system.”


“We use DataCAD as the core 3D modeling program for all of our architectural animations. It is the most intuitive program available — you can’t do this kind of modeling in AutoCAD without greater effort and expense. We have also found that the accuracy of DataCAD is preferable over our high-end animation and rendering programs when it comes to precision architectural modeling.”


“My use of DataCAD to create professional-looking plans is probably my biggest competitive advantage over other builders. I use it for everything from basic shop drawings for ordering and submittals to full house plans and remodeling projects. I stepped up to DataCAD after using several of the CADD programs you see in discount stores that are OK but not very flexible. I am far from a DataCAD expert, but then you don’t have to be to get results.”
