ELITECAD Viewer 15
All your models and plans on a click – including free IFC Viewer!

Looking for an easy way to gain detailed insights into building models or construction drawings but you don't want an expensive and complex CAD software for specialists? Alright, our Viewer is your solution for loading and evaluating ELITECAD data or third-party models via IFC interface.
Full insight into models & plans
With our ELITECAD Viewer you get access to 3D models, 2D plans and many details completely for free. Take a look at the current status of a project, evaluate all the specifics with our easy-to-use model control, print views, check models and drawings in detail – simple, fast, without CAD knowledge.

Whether finished (BIM) model, plant design, special machinery or another architecture or construction project: our Viewer provides you with detailed insights into ELITECAD and IFC data. In addition, benefit from state-of-the-art 3D shader technology for a pleasant and modern visualisation at no cost!
