Sofistik without autocad installed

i want to use sofistik but i dont have autocad installed to my computer .Is it necessary for sofistik to work to have a preinstalled product from autodesk ?

Hello Konna

AutoCAD is not required for the work with SOFiSTiK.
The modelling of the system can be done with different drawing programs.

  1. AutoCAD with the SOFiPLUS user interface
  2. SOFiPLUS-X: Stand-alone program with basic AutoCAD features and the SOFiPLUS user interface, but no AutoCAD licence is required.
  3. Revit with the SOFiSTiK Analysis + Design for Revit add-on
  4. Rhino with the SOFiSTiK Rhinoceros Interfaces
  5. System generation via text input (TEDDY)

All of the listed programs or add-ons can be downloaded via the SOFiSTiK Application Manager.
