CONCRETE PANEL DETAILING
Perth Cadcentre has been involved in the preparation of shop detail drawings of Concrete Tilt Panels and Precast Concrete Panels for the past 25 years and is well recognised within the industry as a leader in this field.
Using our own proprietary software ‘Qikpanel’, each panel is individually detailed clearly showing all cast in items such as grout tubes, inserts, plates and feature grooves or rebates. The area, volume, weight and centre of gravity are also automatically added to the drawing. Separate reinforcing drawings are also provided for each panel type together with an overall panel setout plan.
We also arrange for the lifting and propping designs to be certified by your equipment supplier, these are then clearly shown on the detail drawing.
We specialise in the delivery of targeted AutoCAD training specifically matched to a customer’s needs. This is generally provided as short one on one sessions for business professionals or individuals, at times to suit their schedules. Group training is also available if required.
Short sharp training sessions provide a very cost effect way for customers to get answers to specific questions. This type of training is particularly handy for those who have busy schedules and cannot afford to take whole days off for classroom style training.
For those with limited CAD knowledge, accelerated learning can be achieved by utilising 2 to 3 short training sessions per week. This provides concise increments of learning that can be easily retained, with the opportunity to practice between sessions.
We utilise courseware material with the beginner CAD students. These manuals are available for purchase and are recommended so that practice can be done at home between sessions. As skill levels improve we can then customise the training and focus on more specialised areas.
We offer expect Technical support for AutoCAD via phone and email. We have extensive knowledge of AutoCAD backed by 30 years of industry experience. Most support issues are resolved promptly by our technical team. If necessary, rare complex issues are escalated to Autodesk worldwide support for analysis.
We provide 30 days of free phone and email technical support as standard for all new purchases.
We generally find most issues can be answered within a few minutes, which we provide as standard service at no charge to our customers. For more complex issues that require research, investigation or drawing analysis, we provide a support service charged by times.
