Through the use of LICAD®, up to 50 % savings in the cost of support design can be made. The time between planning and delivery can also be significantly reduced. With this highly automated program, support drawings to scale and materials lists can be generated in the shortest of time. The input data can, for example, also be imported directly from calculation program. Various 3D design systems common in plant construction continue to be available as plug-ins.


The new version LICAD® 12.0 contains a whole range of improvements and product enhancements, such as the clamps and clamp bases newly developed by LISEGA for operating temperatures of up to 620°C. Combined with the consideration of support angles, these enable a much more economical selection of pipe support components. 

Features of version 12.0 include:

  • New pipe clamps (Type 36, 44, 48) for temperature range from 600°C/1110°F to 620°C/1200°F
  • New pipe supports (type 49) for temperature range up to 620°C/1200°F
  • In the 3D window, the part numbers of the support chain are displayed when the mouse is moved over them
  • Export of support drawings in STEP, STL and OBJ format
  • Adaptation of the CAD interfaces to the latest program versions

In addition, LICAD® is prepared for use in a client/server environment. Project administration enables the exchange of drawings between different users and locations, including
queries that can be made directly to LISEGA.
