Ikasys Catalogue and CAD Software

Item's Ikasys catalogue system is free CAD design software featuring technical data and 3D CAD models of all aluminium extrusions and standard components within the Item extruded aluminium profile system.

Technical Data

The products are sorted in much the same way as the main catalogue, making it simple to browse for items, or there is a very useful search function. General product information is supplied, along with more detailed technical data such as weight, moment of inertia and dimensions. A deflection calculator is incorporated, along with recommendations for complementary parts and pdf documents with assembly instructions.

3D CAD Models

A major feature of the Ikasys design software is the 3D CAD model generator. Simply select your product, add any variables (such as length, in the case of extruded aluminium profiles), and choose your preferred model format.

Ordering System

This design software also enables users to generate and save an itemised bill of materials. This saved parts list can then be used to automatically send an enquiry for pricing information.


This package can be installed on to your PC or will run directly from the disc without installation, and is also available as an on-line resource.
