History

We have a history of pioneering technology, starting in 1963, when Professor Georg Nemetschek founded his own engineering office and set the cornerstone for today’s Nemetschek Group. Since then the Nemetschek Group has established itself as a driver for innovation in the AEC market, growing continuously.

"We connect worlds" says the slogan on a poster from the 1990’s. This motto still applies today: Nemetschek software is building bridges – across rivers and valleys, and between planners, engineers, contractors and designers, across offices and national boundaries.

Historie

1990

The SUPERNOVA iX computer from 1990 with an 80486 processor and 33MHz is a very high-performance computer. The Unix operating system already runs on an Intel processor. The entire workstation, including the control tablet and digitizer and a 20-inch monitor comes with a price tag of about 55,000 DM.

Historie

Historie

1988

As early as 1988, planners can use Allplan to create 3D models and perform hidden-line image calculations. The parameters are entered according to directions provided in the manual.

Allplan Brochure from 1988 – This premium product becomes the name for the company’s subsidiary Nemetschek Allplan GmbH.

Historie

1987

A fully equipped workstation for architects and engineers from 1987, including computer, printer and plotter. The SUPERNOVA 32 is a personal computer with a removable Fairchild-Clipper card for the Unix operating system.

The multi-pen high-performance plotter Calcomp 1043 already draws plans with eight pens and therefore in eight colors. Acquisition costs are about 50,000 DM.

In this rendition of Nemetschek’s logo from a brochure in 1987, Nemetschek offers a hand to its customers: "We support you as a strong partner today and in the future". This motto still applies today.

"Card S 3.2 – in a working computer": Instruction’s for Nemetschek’s first software product, Programmsystem Statik 97_77, provides an introduction into the use of magnetic cards and the calculations for which they could be used.

Nemetschek’s first software program is developed in 1977 for the first programmable desktop computer, the Hewlett Packard hp 97. Magnetic strips were used to enter programs. The calculated values are printed on paper strips and glue into the structural analysis plans.

Historie

1968

The first use of computers in the construction industry

As early as 1968, Nemetschek Engineering purchases an Olivetti programma 101. The price tag: 34,000 DM. The Olivetti programma 101 is considered the first print-capable and freely programmable workplace computer in the world. It is already used by NASA for cartographic planning in conjunction with the first flight to the moon.

Historie

1963

Georg Nemetschek, a certified engineer, founds the engineering firm for the construction industry

In 1963, certified engineer Georg Nemetschek attends a programming course for the “program-controlled electronic computing system ZUSE Z 23”. Construction engineer Georg Nemetschek is thrilled by this new and forward-looking computer technology. Konrad Zuse developed ZUSE Z 23 in 1959 as a digital computer based entirely on transistors.
