Staircon Professional is used by staircase manufacturers requiring advanced stair shapes and full-scale printouts. Combined with add-on module Export 2D .dxf or DXF for CAM, Staircon Professional is used by CNC manufacturers with external CAM software.
Design and construct in 3D
Staircon Professional includes the same design features as Staircon Sales. Stair construction is made easy with pre-defined stair shapes and a customised design model database. The staircase is designed in three views and surrounding walls, windows and doors can also be visualised. There is no limitation to the number of stairs, floors or stairwells that can be designed in one single project. Dimensioning can be done automatically and/or manually.
Flexible design features
Staircon has advanced flexible design possibilities for staircase, floor openings and walls.
Work preparation at the push of a button
Stair details are processed into production data with material optimisation and/or printed to plotter as full-size drawings. Scaled production drawings and/or bill of materials for material preparation or as checklist on the shop floor can also be generated. The plan view can be printed scale 1:1.
Compatible modules to extend the functionality of Staircon Professional:
Let your customer see the staircase they envision, send them the 3D file. The exported 3D file can be sent to the customer for viewing, which is a superior alternative to showing the stair with still images. This has been a much appreciated sales tool for Staircon users.
The power of Staircon software can only be experienced if it is tailored to your own needs and methods. With this add-on module the database can be accessed and edited continuously by the user. All of this can of course be adjusted individually in each project to meet specific customer requests.
Calculate the price of the stair with the push of a button. The price is set for the stair details and can be configured to relate to material, detail type/model etc. The price is separated into two: one for the stair detail and one for applying finish to it.
DXF for CAM
For manufacturers who already have a CAM software for 3-axis machining in place, DXF for CAM provides an efficient link to Staircon Professional. The module offers a customised setup of DXF layers used to automate processing of the DXF files into machine-specific CNC code.
Export plan view, side view and/or production details to DXF files. Production details can be exported as separate files and/or separate layers for later processing in an external CAM system. Another common use for exporting DXF is if a stair detail is made by an external manufacturer, for example glass boards.
Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)
Easily transfer data between your ERP system and Staircon CAD. Staircon provides standardised formats for import and export. Integration between the ERP system and Staircon CAD is made simple by using an IMP file (text file) for import and XML file for export. The configuration of data selection and processing is made within your ERP system.
