Carlson CADNet can be purchased as a standalone module or as part of the Takeoff Suite which also includes Construction, GeoTech and Trench. It can run standalone with the included license of IntelliCAD or on top of a separately purchased license of full AutoCAD.
Carlson CADnet allows users to import faster images and PDF files and, if needed, even to merge multiple images into one file that can be digitized or otherwise converted by CAD software using a variety of raster-to-vector routines. CADNet also gives you many tools to help clean up text and linework generated from raster images.
Recent updates to CADNet gives you the ability to export drawing entities to 3D PDF files, import Sketchup files and import and export BIM models (doors, windows, walls, roofs, etc.) and bring them into CAD as CAD software entities; plus, CADnet includes a routine to export surfaces into BIM.
Carlson CADNet and other programs of the Takeoff Suite includes features that are most comparable to construction estimating software such as Paydirt, Quest and Agtek. However, the program also contains much of the same general functionality of the civil design components of programs such as: DCA/Softdesk/Land Desktop, AutoCAD Map, Civil 3d, Raster Design, Eagle Point, TerraModel, GeoPak and InRoads.
