Technology seems to be taking over and we are becoming dependent on technology to do many things that we used to do on our own. The iPhone even has an application that can turn the lights on and off in your house. EagleView Technologies, Inc. invented the concept of aerial roof measurements and the proprietary patent pending software and process which provides detailed calculations that offer the highest accuracy and precision of any other method. Applicad has been developing 3D CAD application software for over 20 years with a particular specialization for the roofing industry. EagleView Technologies and AppliCad Software are teaming up to offer a streamlined method to quickly generate accurate 3D roof models for the estimating departments of metal roofing contractors. EagleView and AppliCad have announced a new technology integration that will allow AppliCad customers to order EagleView’s breakthrough roof measurement reports with an AppliCad format 3D roof model in electronic form. The agreement will enable roofing contractors and distributors to automatically import detailed 3D roof models into AppliCad in just two mouse clicks as part of the everyday estimating and take-off process. “We’re excited to have our detailed roof models available to AppliCad users,” EagleView CEO and President Chris Barrow said. “This will significantly improve the ease with which a metal roofing contractor can respond to their client’s needs.” AppliCad users will be able to send measurement requests for a particular roof to EagleView from the EagleView website and order an AppliCad format model file to be supplied at no extra cost. Using aerial photography and patent-pending software, EagleView accurately calculates measurements for roof areas including the roof’s ridges, rafters, valleys, slopes and more.
