PICTOR Product Model Tools for AutoCAD

Product model tools for AutoCAD system are being developed within PICTOR project "Product Model Evironment for Construction Projects" of STAR research program "System engineering in construction" at VTT Building Technology.

The purpose of product modelling tools/enhancements for AutoCAD is to provide mechanisms for representing, managing and exchanging product model data using AutoCAD. The enhancements implement the generic product data model on the top of AutoCAD.
