Architect Roger Jenkins commented;

‘I really like the simplicity of the default Architectural Menu in Caddie 20’

 after installing Caddie 20 b4



Colin Logan of 9yards Property Ltd. reflects on how much faster he can draw his architectural plans now using Caddie's smart AEC Build tools...

'I now use Caddie’s AEC Build tools for all my architectural plans, drawing complete and fully hatched walls at a stroke, and adding doors and windows just as easily.

Amazing to think that I used to draw all my walls manually, creating lines and offsets then hatching them all in individually - What a chore that was!'



Peter Fishenden discovers how easy Caddie 20’s ‘AEC Build’ tools are to use...

'What can I say, WOW!

I was amazed by just how easy Caddie 20’s ‘AEC Build’ tools are to use, and genuinely gobsmacked at the results I was able to produce in such a short space of time.  In just over 20 minutes I managed to produce a complete model of my building, even including the roof, which I could view in the form of plans, elevations, or full-on 3D model – and this I’m especially pleased about since it now allows me to show exactly what is going to be built in a form that everyone can understand, not just for those who can read plans and elevations.'



"Caddie is still the best CAD system on market, - I can vouch for that"

'Thank you for the latest You Tube link. Very helpful - have been doing this stuff manually; it is great to see that it can be done automatically.
Look forward to the next YouTube training tip.'

Andrew Dukesell

Good tips as ever, really like the polygon selection, I wasn't aware of that.

Very useful.

 

Philip James

Some really useful tips.

Amazing that I couldn't draw a line a few weeks ago.  Picking it up very quickly.  Many thanks to Tony for his unbelievable patience!! Wish I did this years ago.

 

Allister Godfrey

Andrew thanks again for a very instructive video, I had forgotten about the poly select ... that's gonna be another of those tools I can't live without!

 

Allister Godfrey

OMG... I use copy and increment on text A LOT, but I have never paid any attention to copy multiple in the list ... genius!

 

Andrew, thank-you once again for a VERY informative video!



Philip James of Philip James Architecture reflecting upon his recent move to using Caddie;

'I should have done this years ago...when you first came to see me, in fact!'



‘The Caddie YouTube videos are the best thing you've done, and absolutely essential when one lives and works in north of Scotland as I do; whilst I don’t take in this kind of information too well over the phone I can watch the videos in any spare moment I get, even late at night, and this makes them ideal for keeping me up to date.’

Hugh Mackay, Drafting Services



In-place Block Editing with greying out of remaining drawings Objects

'Just a quick one to thank you so much for the excellent feature regarding the block edit where everything else is greyed out.  It really is little tweaks like this that makes Caddie so good.  It is fantastic and not only tells you that the block is being edited, it makes it much easier to see and edit.'

Personal support is essential for creating a successful company

'I would like to say how much we have appreciated CADDIE support over the years (26 years so far!). You have always been very prompt in dealing with any problems we have encountered, a service essential for the smooth running of the practice, so many thanks indeed.  The fact that the relationship is personal and not via some anonymous help-desk is very important to us as our practice has been built upon personal relationships with clients and providers alike. We hope that relationship will sustain far into the future.'

Unique access to Caddie's development

‘Almost immediately after switching from AutoCAD to Caddie I realised that Caddie had some big advantages and just how unique Caddie is in giving every user such direct input into the way the software is developed, even for small practices like mine.  Whether it’s the fact that it’s a lot more ‘English’ in the way it works or the invaluable and extensive support, be it tweaking an existing command or adding new functionality to solve some new problem; it’s always possible to speak directly with the Caddie guys and get our ideas built directly into the software; incredibly useful, and very refreshing.’

Matthew Goddard BSc(Hons) MRICS

Even working on archived drawings is quicker with Caddie

'I now find it quicker and far less painful to export drawings from my old CAD system so that I can load and work on them in Caddie, even if it’s only a 10 minute job!'

Anthony Staig IBC Architects



Caddie  - the 'Complete Package'

'We are very impressed and excited about Caddie. It is inspiring to see everything that Caddie can do and it is a major advantage that you have someone you can talk to about needs and implementations to increase productivity.

Finally there is a "complete package" and we can proudly say that we are part of the Caddie family.'

Stephanie Willcox - Architect



'I wouldn't change my Caddie software for the world!


The support I get with it is brilliant, and one of those hidden extras you get that makes such a refreshing difference; and the no-nonsense, common sense answers I get to my questions mean I have zero downtime.'

The Tea Break Tutorials are a revelation!

'For anyone who doesn’t benefit from  an office full of CAD savvy colleagues, or enjoy the luxury of a dedicated  iT department, the Caddie Tea Break Tutorials are a brilliant, short, fast, and easy way of picking up those tips and techniques that can really speed up everyday working.'

Ian Collier Chartered Architect



"These training videos are awesome - there is so much more to Caddie and its  great way to discover its full potential."

Graham Rocher 



‘Caddie Time-tracker takes the embarrassment out of billing!’

‘Caddie’s Time-tracker enabled me to produce a full listing for all the time I had spent working on my client's drawings at the push of a button.’

‘the Time-tracker printout, detailing ‘Work Time’, Open Time’ and Saved Time, along with the actual time and dates of the drawing sessions made the job of agreeing on the bill easy’

‘Caddie Tea Break Tutorials’

Just a quick email to let you know that we were very pleased to be part of the tutorial yesterday. It was a great way to see what the function does, and so much better than reading about it! 

I look forward to trying it out, once I have got the latest version of 19 downloaded.

“Thank you very much for your commitment to us - the Caddie Users"


“What we needed was stability and ‘DWG’ compatibility. Caddie has provided both”


“I’m not used to support like this – if more people realised how good it was they would also be using Caddie.”


Having been a KUHLMANN drawing board user in the 80’s I felt safe in the sense that I wouldn't have to adjust to the new technology “Computers”. Then I was introduced to the DOS version of CADDIE. We upgraded to CADDIE 5 Professional and used the programme until the hard drive of the computer gave up and I was forced to upgrade. We installed CADDIE 9, 12 &15. I was familiar with the CADDIE 9 and did not want to adjust to use the “NEW CADDIE”.

 

How wrong can one be?  Ever since I started experiencing the latest version of CADDIE it is an absolute pleasure. If I get stuck, help is just a phone call away.

 

Thank You CADDIE for an excellent drawing programme.

 

N J van Rensburg



I have already won a job directly as a result of using Caddie’s 3D.  After seeing the model the client immediately gave me the project


My skills have developed rapidly with Caddie and I believe it allows me to produce excellent drawings far quicker than any program I have ever used


After doing the three day Quick Start Course I drew quicker on Caddie than on my old system


Caddie is incredibly quick to use, and also most importantly it’s very easy to learn, irrespective of your previous CAD experience


The key to successful implementation is effective training


With Caddie, changing drawings is now a small rather than a major part of my life


You wouldn't recognize the office now, there is no drawing board, just my Caddie workstation


As an Architect, Caddie draws the way I think.


I really don't know what I would do without Caddie now



Its quite fantastic how Caddie changes your life.


The migration between Caddie 12 and Caddie 14 is seamless. You can’t see a difference until you start to experiment with all the new functions. The backup support form Caddie is still a constant and always satisfactory.
Alphonse de Jong, DE LA REY & CELLIERS ARCHITECTS CC


I have just had my most productive year ever - and that is largely due to using your Caddie software.


After doing the three day Quick Start Course I drew quicker on Caddie than on my old system



'I have found Caddie to be user-friendly and simply wonderful to do architectural drawings with'
'I had no full time training from Caddie. This was my own decision, but Caddie''s consultants were very helpful and understanding by helping me whenever I require help.'
Henry Losper



Caddie saves me the equivalent of two staff


'I used Caddie 9 but Caddie 14 makes things much much simpler', Johannes Mnyandu, Department of Public Works


Your Caddie software has revolutionised the way we work - we produce far better drawings much more quickly – should have changed years ago.
