Started in 2003, XtraCAD.com was set up as a platform to aid users of the newly evolving range of 3D parametric modelling software utilities being developed by Micro Application Packages (MAP) from Blackpool, England.

Throughout the continual development of these applications, including the acquisition of MAP by Autodesk® in 2011 and subsequent rebranding, we have remained the first port of call for many users of all levels seeking assistance.

We are proud that Autodesk 'fully understand the importance of XtraCAD for the CADmep and Fabrication community' and acknowledge that we 'do a great service by maintaining this community and understand it is important for users'.

Join us now and become a part of the future of Building Services Coordination & BIM.
