Developed in conjunction with one of the leading designers and manufacturers of spiral staircases and balconies in the UK, StairCAD is a specialist set of tools to speed up and automate the design of straight, spiral, helical and combi staircases, as well as balconies, gates and railings. StairCAD was developed with a brief to make the design process quick, easy and accessible to users with no cad experience and has proven to be massively successful.
StairCAD is fully integrated into the Elements Direct/Drafting environment, and contains a large range of stair treads, balusters, plates and brackets as well as metal channel and angles, which can be easily supplemented or replaced with custom parts and assemblies.
Our development partners were able to speed up their design time from several days to a couple of hours for a complex stair case, and the level of detail on the drawing has greatly improved the communication of their clients requirements with the factory, speeding up the manufacturing process significantly.
