CAD System

At the beginning of the project I created all drawings in CorelDraw. Therefore some files are available in the CDR Format. Please use Corel Draw Version 8 or higher. I will transfer in the future all files from Corel into .cad format from ProfiCAD6XP.

From 2002 on I used the 2D CAD Program ProfiCAD6XP. All dates from this date are available in the .cad format. The program is simply learnable and is well suitable for these requirements.
