Athena CAD PLAN is a software company that specializes in developing CAD software for curtain wall design and facade engineering. The company offers a range of products that help designers, engineers, and fabricators to create and manage complex facade projects. Athena CAD PLAN's flagship product is ATHENA, a CAD software that is specially tailored to the needs of metal and facade builders.


What is ATHENA?

ATHENA is a CAD software that provides a comprehensive solution for curtain wall design and facade engineering. ATHENA can be used as an add-on to AutoCAD or as a stand-alone solution with fully integrated AutoCAD. ATHENA has four main features: 2D design, 3D design, engineering, and sheet editing.

  • 2D design: A 2D drawing environment with practical routines and libraries for producing elevations, cross-sections, and workshop drawings. Routines for semi-finished parts, foils, thermal insulation, welded seams or panels simplify the drawing process. Extensive and freely expandable libraries, e.g. for profile systems, standard parts or manufacturer parts, provide an overview in the drawings. Sophisticated dimensioning functions are available for quick dimensioning.

  • 3D design: A versatile 3D design section with the possibility of generating parts lists and production drawings automatically from a 3D model. The 3D model can be created parametrically or imported from other CAD software. ATHENA supports BIM (Building Information Modeling) workflows and can exchange data with other BIM software via IFC (Industry Foundation Classes) format.

  • Engineering: Powerful computational tools for structural analysis and building physics. ATHENA can perform static calculations, wind load simulations, thermal bridge calculations, U-value calculations, and sound insulation calculations. The results can be displayed graphically or in tables and exported to other formats.

  • Sheet editing: A sheet editing program for sheet design and development. ATHENA can create unfolded views of sheet metal parts and generate CNC data for cutting machines. ATHENA can also handle complex shapes such as cones, cylinders, or pyramids.

ATHENA is independent of profile systems and can be matched to individual needs. It can also handle different languages and units and can translate a drawing into each of the 10 languages currently contained in ATHENA on the press of a key.
