McCormick’s AutoCAD® Interface for McCormick Estimating Software Users.
Just pick the drawing or drawings and let the automated takeoff process track changes in the AutoCAD® drawings. This user friendly interface is an intelligent program that learns as it goes.
- Direct interface with McCormick Estimating programs
- Automated takeoff of AutoCAD® drawings*
- Intelligent program that learns as it goes
- Tracks changes in AutoCAD® drawings*
- User friendly interface
Interfaces easily with the systems you are familiar with. Create jobs in the Windows Estimating System as usual; open the CAD Estimating System and all jobs created using the Windows Estimating System are available for takeoff. Attach an AutoCAD® drawing to the selected job and you are ready for the easiest takeoff you have ever done while using the same user security.
No measuring or missed runs. Add home runs & drops and you’re done! If Lengths are drawn on separate layers, Automatic Takeoff may be selected, measuring the drawing automatically. There is a home run feature that may be used for the automatic takeoff of data, fiber, and voice, etc. Choose the number of additions to the ends and drops down the wall for each length to be added.
No more manual counting of items & assemblies. With 100% counting accuracy, Auto Takeoff uses takeoff symbols that are linked to specific items & assemblies. All the symbols (data/voice outlets, cable tray, racks, etc.) are identified, read, and counted. If the items & assemblies are already attached to the symbols, they are automatically taken off and added to the Audit Trail.
Items and Assemblies
Just link the drawing symbols with items or assemblies, pick them out of your estimating system or paste from other jobs. The CAD Estimating System uses the same items & assemblies used in the Windows Estimating System. You can also have several different symbols libraries if you need them.

Take the Office with You
McCormick Estimating Systems are designed to be compatible with desktop PCs, laptops, and tablet PCs, enabling you to work anywhere (especially at the job site).
McCormick’s database is the core of our estimating program. With this database, you can create detailed and accurate bids your way. Our database can store virtually unlimited amounts of items & assemblies plus unlimited amounts of items & assemblies to each job. Any assembly can contain unlimited items which can be taken off as a unit. Both items & assemblies can be modified to fit your needs; it is easy to add, move, and edit them. Items & assemblies contain user definable specification fields. As an example, Price 1 could be your cost, Price 2 your sell price and Price 3 could be a change order price. In addition, each item and each assembly can have its own unit price. We designed the database to be a productivity tool. By taking advantage of its powerful capabilities, you can increase your accuracy and cut your estimating time up to 75%.
