About us

EgiCAD is a Research Group about Graphic expresion in engineering and CAD. Its activity is centered in Computer Aided Design, Geographic Information Systems, Spatial Meshes, Building Information Modelling, Virtual and Augmented Reality and Reality Capture.

Our work

Our main work lines are about teaching, researching and technological services, always related with CAD (Computer Aided Design), GIS (Geographic Information Systems), BIM (Building Information Modelling), spatial meshes and visual impact simulation in engineering projects.

Our logo

Egicad’s logo es a polyhedron that defines the geometry of a PLATE spatial structure, “SIMPLY” obtained by transformation of a VORONOI DIAGRAM, created in the z=1 plane. In summary, non regular tridimensional models are generated by means of automatic bidimensional methods


This is our first published design, with the title “CR-Tangent Meshes”, as a result of our Methods of Computational Geometry applied to the Design of Spatial Structures. It got the “Tsuboi award” for the best paper published in the Journal of the IASS (International Association for Shell and Spatial Structures)
