What is included in a Cover 3D sales licence?

  • Project and client management: create client files, use a dashboard to get an overview of your projects;
  • Design and customisation: define your projects step by step, from the first profile to the finishing of textures and colors;
  • Glazing and panels catalogues: customise your glazing and panels catalogues directly in Cover 3D so that you can integrate the fillings you use every day into your 3D constructions;
  • 3D rendering: create your projects in 3D and add furniture, plants and other decorative objects to bring the simulation to life. Thanks to the SketchUp object import function, it only takes a few clicks to add that little extra something that will appeal to your clients;
  • Photo integration: take photos of the future construction site, import them into the software and integrate the project. Thanks to the 3D simulation, you can now show the project in its natural environment with shadows and reflections, which will immerse your client.
  • Quote and price calculation: Cover automatically calculates the selling price of the project, as well as your margin. You can then submit a customised quotation to your client via a Word document and generate your order forms in a few clicks.

  • Production sheet: generate your sections, assembly plans and assembly drawings, and manage your bill of materials directly in our software for greater ease of manufacture;
  • Output list: determine the list of bars to be cut, but also the layout of your project in 2D;
  • Sections and assembly drawings: generate technical sections and assembly drawings using our tool;
  • Customisation of assemblies: manually determine the manufacturing specificities of your Cover 3D project before it goes into production.

Options & modules

  • CAPM (Computer Aided Production Management): follow your projects in their manufacturing process and optimise your multi-project management. Thanks to this option, you can also send your projects to your cutting or machining machines;
  • Static: guarantee the stability of the structure thanks to the powerful three- dimensional static calculator provided in Cover. You will be able to carry out a precise verification of your conservatory, with all the results of the diagnosis displayed directly in 3D;
  • Thermal: using a calculation method based on current European standards, Cover 3D determines the U-value of your project. Easily generate a detailed report guaranteeing the client the performance of their project;
  • SketchUp: export your Cover 3D projects to SketchUp and enhance your client presentations;
  • Artefacto: export your Cover 3D projects to Urbasee by Artefacto and view them in augmented reality.

Frame Module

The frame module allows you to design frames, doors and windows.

Conservatories and Pergolas Module

The conservatories and pergolas module allows you to conceptualise simple and complicated projects, and to access the library of your gammists, partners of Cover group, and choose the best products to carry out your constructions.

Customised parameterization

The Cover 3D software requires one (or more) technical database(s) to be set up for optimal use. This contains all the raw materials (profiles, accessories, joints, hardware, fillings, etc.) and labour as well as all the “assembly” rules.

This parameterisation can be done by a software external (Xlib) to the application. It is possible for you to do this setting yourself (after a 5-day training course) or to entrust it to us in order to save time.

The parameter setting of your data will be carried out by specialists who have a perfect command of the joinery and the programme.

Depending on your needs, we can also create libraries (of frames, conservatories, etc.) to meet your requirements in order to provide the best possible support for your sales team or your dealers.

Specific developments

Does your business have a particular need that is not included among the many functionalities of Cover 3D software? Your company is specialised in an innovative field and you would like the support of your IT partner?

For more than twenty years, we have been listening and providing solutions to our customers who want to adapt the software specifically to their activity.
