cadwork is a computer aided design software, created in 1980 by the CSEM, and followed in 1982 by the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), before it came a Swiss society in 1988 (Cadwork informatik).
In the origin, cadwork was developed for the watch industry, but it is now mainly used by the building and construction market:
- Civil Engineering
- Road building (EasyRoad)
- Armed concrete
- Glue laminated timber
cadwork files have the following extensions :
- .2d, .2dc (2 dimensions drawing)
- .3d, .3dc (3 dimensions design)
- .2dr (road projects)
- .2dv (parametric elements).
These files can be viewed with the free software. The free version allows to Zoom, to PAN and to print, but it doesn't allow you to modify the drawings.
- Between 1982 and 1996, cadwork was compiled only on workstations, such as those from Apollo Computer, Digital Equipment Corporation (VAX and Alpha platforms) and Hewlett-Packard. The program was written in Fortran and compiled in 32 bits or 64 bits.
- In 1993, the core rewritten in C.
- Since 1996, release 7 worked also on Microsoft Windows NT 3.5.
- Since 2001, release 10 worked only on platform Microsoft Windows NT.
- Since 2006, the software was available in ten languages: French, German, English, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Czech, Romanian, Polish and Finnish.
- Since 2007, a DWG Viewer and converter, based on OpenDWG, is freely available.
- Since 2014, IFC compatible (Industry Foundation Classes).
