SignCAD Systems is a Minneapolis-based CAD/CAM software developer serving traffic sign design and manufacturing facilities in the road traffic industry. The company has been in the sign industry for over 15 years and has provided over 43 state department of transport's with both software and hardware.
CAD/CAM design software for road traffic signs
SignCAD® allows you to design traffic signs accurately in minutes. Because SignCAD has standard tables built into the software, it is designed to do most of the work for you.
We've packed SignCAD with some powerful features, including multiple standards support, truly automatic dimensioning, smart objects and dynamic panels.
The software includes federal standard signs library, graphic import capabilities, multiple file capability, sign file preview, recent files opened list, arc fit polyline for export, MicroStation compatibility, and much more.
SignCAM® is the option that adds manufacturing capability to SignCAD's powerful design engine. It is designed to bridge the gap between design and manufacturing, allowing for the direct transfer of relevant information electronically without redundant, and error-producing, sketches or faxes. The transferred information consists of such items as letter count, sizes and colours.
With the use of the SignCAD / SignCAM combination there is no need for any outside or third-party packages.
True shape-nesting software for road sign design
SignNEST is a true shape-nesting package that will always get the ultimate efficiency with regard to material utilisation.
Besides accurate reporting on costs and inventory, SignNEST provides accurate cutting drivers for plotter / cutters, lasers, waterjets and routers. SignNEST is a must-have for the high-production sign shop.
Road sign design inventory software
SignTRACK provides complete inventory control from the design stage of a sign's life. From the initial work order through the life of the sign in fabrication, storage, distribution, road placement, maintenance, and so on, a complete reporting history is recorded.
The inventory record contains complete information for all standard and custom signs, including complete dimensioned CAD files with push-button manufacturing capabilities.
SignCAD Systems will populate your sign inventory database by collecting sign data in the field. We have extensive experience with manual collection and automated data collection using vehicle-mounted video equipment. Our capabilities range from field verification of specific signs or attributes ranging from GPS location, retroreflectivity and sign sheeting to complete data collection.
When we undertake a data collection project, we design a methodology that fits your budget. We then deliver a complete database that you can use in the field to implement a complete inventory management system from that date forward.
Large data collection projects that occur over time are coordinated with your ongoing sign replacement projects to ensure that all data stays current.
Cutting system for road traffic signs
SignCAD Systems and Graphtec have teamed up to produce the ideal cutting combination for the road traffic industry.
The cutter cuts 3M’s Heaviest Diamond GradeTM and Avery Denison’s T7500TM and T6500TM materials with ease and features advanced four-point automatic registration mark sensor. It also cuts through thicker material with force up to 600g, has longer blade life and outperforms more expensive tangential cutters.
The SignCAD VIP system handles everything from overhead freeway signs to specialty signs and does everything from design to cutting.
CAD design viewing software
SignCAD Viewer is a separately licensed program that allows users to open SignCAD (*.SGN) files and to view them in their entirety including dimensions.
This product does not allow users to modify sign files, however, it does allow zoom, printing, changing dimensioning style and other viewing options.
Traffic control planning design software
ConeZONE is a powerful tool that designs traffic control plans according to federal and state standards. Users can select and apply typical MUTCD layouts to a roadway plan, map or aerial photograph, and all required devices are automatically and accurately plotted.
Signs designed in SignCAD can be placed into the work zone. Signs in the workzone can be pulled up and cut in SignCAM. ConeZONE is fully integrated with all of our other products, SignCAD, SignCAM, SignTRACK, which means that existing permanent signs can be overlaid into the workzone to show modifications to or conflicts with existing signage.
