We made significant use of the ODA Architecture SDK and incorporated automatic scheduling, live energy calculations and intelligent drafting into Caddie. This means that a window is understood as a window and a door as a door, with a collection of relevant properties as opposed to a bunch of lines simply depicting the object.
Derek Bretherton Managing Director – Advanced Computer Solutions
We couldn’t take BricsCAD® forward without the help of the ODA. Our in-house developers focus on UX, our Building Information Modeling products and bringing the power of Artificial Intelligence to CAD. If we didn’t have access to the Drawings SDK, we would need a huge team dedicated just to .dwg interoperability. That wouldn’t be profitable for us. Our ODA membership is a win-win for all concerned.
We can trust the ODA to deliver .dwg basics while we concentrate on developing new and innovative products on both existing and emerging CAD platforms. Our use of the ODA Platform enables us to focus on what we do best – create new functionality for a wide range of users.
Using the ODA Platform, we can quickly and easily keep in step with technological changes, maintain better compliance with .dwg files and direct our efforts to other areas such as making our software more powerful and feature rich.
Brett Rowbotham Research Development Manager – Knowledge Base
Joining ODA was absolutely the right decision. The ODA Platform gives us true native .dwg support. It is very important to us to have the freshest .dwg compliance because it is so critical to CAD users.
Our innovative products satisfy user needs, ease their work load and help them win new business - all at a reasonable price. ODA's commitment to open industry-standard formats for the exchange of CAD data has made this easier to achieve.
