Civil engineering

Messerli Informatik AG has been developing and distributing software for the construction planning process since 1978. Initially, the software was primarily developed for Switzerland, but it has increasingly grown in importance across the European market in recent years. Messerli has captured these markets with its products for tendering, drawing and construction, scheduling and cost planning. The many years of expertise and the company's precise market knowledge enable us to develop very specific software tailored to our customers' needs. Customers gain great benefits from these products, as the software provides solutions to streamline their work processes. The high precision and reliability of the products make Messerli software very popular and secure its position in the market.

Machine construction

EliteCAD ME is available in 2D and 3D CAD software for planning in machine construction, plant construction and the metal construction industry. Many metalworking companies benefit from the simple application and high performance of EliteCAD ME. EliteCAD ME differs fundamentally from EliteCAD AR. EliteCAD ME is based on ACIS technology, and both application and interfaces coincide with the machine construction market. Specific interfaces let EliteCAD ME be used as a supplier to large-scale systems such as CATIA.


Research and development

Increased commercial demands on our customers, their requests and suggestions, market trends, efficiency improvements and new technological possibilities are combined into an intelligent concept and implemented in software technology. To do this, numerous technologies must be researched and developed first, which is crucial if one wants to provide pioneering technology. For example, long before BIM technology (building information model) was even advertised, it had been developed and used by our customers. The latest developments of the Fraunhofer Institute for Intelligent Analysis and Information Systems (IAIS) support this technology with the IFC interface and enable further processing of 3D models from different programs. As we don't always carry out research alone, we cooperate closely with the IAIS, BuildingSMART, various universities, Microsoft and other technology companies.

The current product from research and development is BIM2Cost. With BIM2Cost, building costs can be calculated based on a 3D CAD model (BIM) and set according to eBKP-H. Building costs can be graphically displayed and optimised on the model. Two levels have been developed with this project: the graphic quantity calculation from any BIM and then setting the costs according to the new eBKP-H standard. The program is actively used on the market and Prof. Manfred Breit also applies it in his teaching at the Institute of 4D Technologies (I4DS) at the University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland.
