Taking Control at Mission Control

At CAD International’s Mission Control Headquarters on the beautiful Northern Beaches of Sydney, new technology and a renewed commitment to service has given us the ability to go above and beyond the normal call of duty when it comes to technical support…
…We now provide clients the option for us to control their PC remotely and resolve problems almost instantly right before their eyes. Clients allow or deny the technician permission for each support call, and can take back control in a single click if desired. The new tool allows clients to get back to their favourite CAD software fast and it shows them how the problem was resolved so they can repeat the process on their own if they have to in the future. This new support tool is standard with the up and coming Support Subscription along with a variety of other benefits.

Half Price Upgrades and more…

Customers should expect to receive their Support Subscription invoice in late November or early December this year. Support services cover subscribers from the 1st January 2008 to January 2009 and includes more services and benefits this year than ever before. It is also half the cost of support previously Check out the details here

As a gentle reminder, support is not free after the first 30 days, but it is extremely inexpensive. The cost is a fixed $195 per license for the entire year; that’s only about 53c per day! To be fair to all users, support will only be supplied to fully paid up subscribers.

Walltech-nology stuns the building industry

CAD International is close to completing phase one of a new software project that will make Walltech Australasia Pty Ltd change the way buildings are built….globally.

The process doubles productivity, halves the work force costs and delivers dramatically better insulation, fire ratings and energy efficiencies to home and commercial applications of walls in buildings.

CAD’ has written specialised applications using the robust RealCAD engine and CAM functions to enable architects drawings to be converted into manufacturers 3D RealCAD models and subsequently into CNC machine code. From here, huge routers carve out the foam sandwich walls complete with space for frames, electricals, plumbing and other service fixtures that are preinstalled in the wall structure. Completed walls are then erected onsite, pre-finished and pre-configured to the architects’ drawings. Once erected, services such as plumbing and electrical are hooked up in minutes.
The construction is eco friendly too with waste materials from the manufacturing process being recyclable so even the dust from the router is collected, compressed and made into flooring!

CAD International are proud to be a major part of this new technology set to change the way the world builds buildings. More…


CAD International today completed the second phase of one of its most challenging projects to date for one of the world’s largest corporations. Contracts prevent CAD from revealing the clients name at this stage but suffice to say we all know of them in almost every corner of the globe.

CAD International is proud to advise that that the application (developed using the RealCAD engine), has already saved the corporation millions of dollars and provided a ROI (Return On Investment) far exceeding expectations.

The program has been trialled and fine tuned in Australia over the past year and is currently being tested in various regions around the world. Divisions of the company in France have contributed to the product’s functional suitability for the European and global market and will likely be bringing the tool into full operation this fin. year.

CAD’ look forward to working further with the local team of far sighted thinkers and contributing overseas users. It is not every day that CAD’s clients think well outside the box. We take this opportunity to congratulate the team.

CAD Users Prayer


Dear Lord,
Every single evening
As I’m lying here in bed,
This tiny little Prayer
Keeps running through my head:
God bless all my family
Wherever they may be,
Keep them warm and safe from harm
For they’re so close to me.
And God, there is one more thing
I wish that you could do;
Hope you don’t mind me asking,
Please bless my computer too.
Now I know that it’s unusual
To Bless a motherboard,
But listen just a second
While I explain it to you, Lord.
You see, that little metal box
Holds more than odds and ends;
Inside those small compartments
Rest the files of work and friends.
And when I’ve been designing
Heart and soul have been in sync;
Saved inside this scrap of metal
Countless hours of ‘creative think’.
To some CAD is but nothing,
Yet to me it is my blood,
I shouldn’t wish to lose it all,
For my life would be like crud.(pardon!)
Please take an extra minute, Lord
From your duties up above,
To bless the files on my hard drive,
That are filled with so much love.
And when you update Heaven’s plan
With your own CAD software,
Bless everyone who has ever drawn,
And lost it in despair.
Thank you for your kindness
And your listening to my plight.
I feel so much better now,
And can have a real good night.
