One important reason for developing a new CAE system is to incorporate novel programming technologies that support a much cleaner, simpler user interface.
We managed to cut the number of dialogue boxes to fewer than 10. And, as paradoxical as it may sound, we were able to significantly expand functionality.

When you draw circuit or flow diagrams, you can access familiar and popular AutoCAD commands such as “grips” for symbols or lines – no need to relearn everything.
Setting up a new project used to demand a lot of attention – and rightly so.

This block schematic can be submitted with your quote and, if you get the contract, “built out” to a complete project.
