Adding a swimming pool to a home can add enjoyment for the family as well as value to the home itself. Building a swimming pool begins with the design. A poorly designed pool can actually detract from a home's value.
ShastaCAD was developed by Shasta Industries, a leading swimming pool designer and builder in the metro Phoenix, Arizona, area. The company builds more than 400 pools each month and, as such, needed an effective design program. The company partnered with AutoCAD and developed ShastaCAD, in 2004. It is a vector-based design program with full colour compatibility. The program uses Drawing Web Format (DWF), for easy sharing with subcontractors. Attributes of the blueprint, such as part numbers, pump size, etc., can be downloaded to an Excel spreadsheet. This is a professional swimming pool design program that is best suited for contractors.
