bocad Roof & Wall for the building envelope

BIM modelling software dedicated to the building envelope (cladding and waterproofing)

bocad Roof & Wall software offers a complete solution for 3D modelling of cladding , roofing and waterproofing of buildings of any type (industrial, commercial or architectural). It includes a wide range of the most common catalogues of cladding and roofing profiles and makes it possible to produce all the finishing parts (folded plates and other attachment parts).


A modern user interface with a logical workflow allows users to design and model their project quickly and accurately.. Automatic layout of facades, gables and roofs is available with many options for precise installation. Tools allow the positioning and modelling of openings (doors, windows, shutters, etc.) and cut out the cladding. Possibility of palletizing elements for precise ordering of materials and saving time on site. Numbering of specific cladding elements (length range) and special deliverables for flashing. The general arrangement drawings of the facades and roofs are facilitated and automated for a precise nomenclature and of a high quality. The different interfaces (import/export) in different formats allow interoperability with other software and work within the framework of BIM projects. Modeling can be done on the bocad model or on an imported reference model. You also have all the features of bocad Steel.
