Designed specifically for mining CAD requirements, MineCAD, provides engineers with mining specific CAD functionality without the overhead of third party CAD engines.
By taking advantage of existing CAD functionality and applying it for the mining industry, MineCAD is capable of producing true working 3D designs as well as creating fast driving layouts with specific engineering layout tools.   MineCAD also provides a stable base for other MineCAD products offered by MineRP, including MineMarkup, MineRecon, MineHaul, iRing, MineStructure, MineCAD VMS and RMS, MineOrbit and mineCAVE

Some key features of MineCAD include:

  • Easy to learn and easy to use, with customisable toolbars and short-cut keys to maximise productivity
  • Optimised designed for Mining Engineers with a mine design toolset that includes, ramp and pit design, drift wall and solid generation and drift cross-section profile creation among others
  • Fast and responsive graphics engine allowing excellent performance when manipulating large three dimensional datasets
  • Fully featured CAD engine, extended with mining specific functions and tools and advanced functionality to design in 3D
  • Unrivalled industry integration.  MineCAD integrates with a variety of other mining technical systems such as Mine2-4D, Datamine Studio, Surpac, Vulcan, AutoCAD, Microstation, Ventsim and many others
  • Extendable object model allows for programmable integration with third party solutions
  • File or Database based data storage allows for easy scaling from small operations to large enterprise implementations
  • The best printing and plotting capabilities around!
