simply design better, faster, smarter®

RealCAD for Plumbers

Create ‘As-Built’ (‘As-Constructed’ / ‘As-Installed’) plumbing plans, better, faster and smarter. Based on our most popular CAD software, RealCAD®, you’ll be able to rapidly edit existing CAD drawings from your architect, surveyor or builder, or create your own from scratch.

Simply add your pipework diagrams using the supplied style templates, then print and save to PDF, DWG or CAD formats ready to lodge with your local water authority.

Get Good Fast

Easy step-by-step online training and unparalleled support from our team will have you up and running in just a few hours.

” …just completed the training and really enjoyed it. I’m sure I’ll discover new ways to expand my experience every time I use it.”, Rory Manning

Feature Rich Simplicity

Enjoy the cleanest and most rewarding CAD interface yet, and for those who won’t need to use the software every day, it’s also great to know that the commands are easy to learn and easy to recall.

” I switched from AutoCAD LT as it was just too hard to learn and too expensive “, Jake Brice Plumbing

More Than Pipes

Because PlumbersCAD is actually an enhanced version of our most popular CAD drafting software, you’ll be able to use all the standard CAD tools for any type of drawing and design, not just plumbing diagrams .

Now that’s a benefit you may not have considered. 

“I’ve been using it for everything from designing my kids cubby-house to calculating how much pipe I need on proposed works. I even use it to check off items when doing quotes from Architects plans. My next project is the layout of our warehouse.”

A few features we think you’ll love…

Sketch and Stretch™

Easily adjust anything in your drawing. Associated elements will update automatically saving hours of rework.

Good Measure

Instant, accurate measurement tools assist in costing and calculating job requirements with confidence. Areas, lengths, angles and quantities straight off the drawing, even around complex hard to estimate shapes.

Copy That

With multiple ways to copy. From click and drag, cut and paste, following along a path, circular and linear arrays to mirroring, rotation and scale. Never draw the same thing twice again.


Set your current drawing properties or change the properties of selected items to those of another entity in the drawing without interrupting your design flow.


See line weights whilst you work just as they will print or toggle all to fine lines to see more detail.

Smart Select™

Within the most complex drawings RealCAD lets you locate items by Layer, Type, Name, Style, Weight and Colour or by matching one you’ve already chosen. Selecting what you want to edit has never been easier.

Magic Eraser™

Powerful editing of lines is made possible by the proprietary Magic Eraser™ function. Just press Alt + drag your cursor to trim and delete.

Geometry Tracker

Step back through all the geometry changes of your design, even if your in the middle of drawing a line without stepping back through your views. By tracking only the geometry you’re spared losing your place and wasting time. If you want to step back though your views you can do this too. It’s your choice.

The Prompt

An easy to follow prompt steps you through each stage of the command. Just follow the Prompt and you can’t go wrong. This is particularly good for new or intermittent users.
