Digital Workflow CAD/CAM

Am Umweltpark 7,
44793 Bochum,

Since 1982, bocad has been a leading construction software company. We continuously enhance our construction software systems in line with market requirements. Numerous award-winning objects, built with the aid of our software, are spread all over the world.


We provide bocad-3D software for three-dimensional construction. This construction software can deal with your projects completely, from design to fabrication.

In bocad-3D, the model can be fully evaluated and all drawings and parts lists can be generated in any format. The steel, glazing, roof and wall, timber, and concrete applications are available in bocad-3D.


Loading the entire 3D-model into bocad-PS, our software for the production process, you have all data at hand to control and operate the workflow up to erection on the building site. Just select the modules you need from the following:

  • Stock management
  • Plate / bar nesting
  • Postprocessors
  • Delivery notes
  • Numerous BOMs
  • Task management
  • Materials management
  • Work breakdown structures
  • Clocking systems

The link between bocad-3D and bocad-PS is bocad-IC (Information Centre). It contains many different catalogues of designations of profiles, bolts, standard parts, assemblies etc. Of course, any particular catalogues can be added and administrated too.

Our programs provide miscellaneous interfaces so that they can be integrated into the software system you are already working with.


We consider our products as basic components for your individual solution. As we are customer and solution-oriented, we understand the importance of being able to customise our products according to our customers’ needs.

Thus, all bocad products:

  • Are easy to be configured to the customer’s needs
  • Handle user-defined entities
  • Own central access to catalogues (parts, bolts, etc.)
  • Comprise a macro programming tool and a print mask editor
  • Run on various operating systems

These features enable the partners and the customers to define and develop their own application with or without the help of the bocad central development.

Thus our solutions are close to the customer, giving us a competitive edge over centralised global companies.


Customer satisfaction is our highest priority. Due to our long term and trustful cooperation with our customers we provide exactly what they require. We determine the requirements of our customers in regular user meetings and adjust our developments accordingly. This ensures we are always up-to-date and guarantees the high standard of our products.
