Description

Carlson Takeoff Suite is a bundle that includes Carlson Construction, Carlson CADNet, Carlson GeoTech & Carlson Trench. It can run standalone with the included license of IntelliCAD or on top of a separately purchased license of full AutoCAD.

Carlson Takeoff Suite is a hybrid program that is most comparable to construction estimating software such as Paydirt, Quest and Agtek. However, it also contains much of the same general functionality of the civil design components of programs such as: DCA/Softdesk/Land Desktop, AutoCAD Map, Civil 3d, Raster Design, Eagle Point, TerraModel, GeoPak and InRoads.

All Carlson Software purchases will be delivered by email with your new serial number and download instructions within two business days.

System Requirements

For Carlson’s CAD-Based Products

Note: Carlson products installed on top of the CAD products of IntelliCAD or AutoCAD, are subject to the same requirements as the CAD engine itself. Please follow the requirements for the CAD platform listed below and allow an additional 750 MB of hard-drive space for the Carlson application.

Carlson 2016-2018 with IntelliCAD 8.x

  • Compatible with 32 or 64 bit Windows Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, and 10
  • For hardware requirements, see Carlson 2013-2015* below

Carlson 2013-2015* with IntelliCAD 7.2

*Starting with 2013 build 130120

Intel® Pentium® 4 or comparable (minimum), Intel i7 or at least Intel i5 or comparable (recommended). Due to the variety of processors on the market, one can use cpubenchmark.net/cpu_list.php to do comparative analysis. While the overall processor score matters, the single thread performance is of the most interest.

  • 32-bit Windows 7-8.1: 1 gigabyte (GB) of RAM minimum for, 4 GB recommended.
  • 64-bit Windows 7-8.1: 2 GB of RAM minimum for, 8+ GB recommended.
  • Windows Vista: 1 GB of RAM minimum, 4 GB recommended.
  • Windows XP: 512 megabytes (MB) of RAM minimum, 2 GB recommended.

Graphics card compatible with OpenGL Version 1.4 or higher:

  • Recommended are desktop graphics level discrete (not integrated cards like Intel HD) graphics cards.
  • Preferably Nvidia Geforce due to their more consistent driver support.
  • Discrete ATI/AMD cards will be adequate, but ATI’s driver support has been spotty and user is frequently deferred to the computer manufacturer for support.
  • Professional Nvidia Quadro cards are not currently recommended due to driver issues.
  • Powerful gaming cards are not required and probably would not provide as much benefit as investment in more memory or better CPU

Carlson 2012 and earlier with IntelliCAD 7.1 and 6.x based products

  • Windows® XP, Windows® Vista, Windows® 7
  • Intel Pentium® or more powerful processor
  • 64-bit machines are supported, but application itself is 32-bit
  • 1 GB RAM (minimum), 4 GB recommended (for complex drawings)
  • 400 MB of free hard disk space (1.2 GB Total, see Note above)

AutoCAD®

Please visit the AutoCAD System Requirements page for current specifications which are subject to change without advance notice.

Please visit the Autodesk summary of the Operating system compatibility for AutoCAD (Autodesk Bulletin TS14078105) for historical references between AutoCAD and its supported operating system(s).

Please see Note above for hard disk space requirements for the Carlson application.
