Holistic City Software

CityCAD Viewer

CityCAD Viewer is a free tool for opening and exploring URB-format models created with CityCAD. It is completely free of charge and does not require any user registration or product activation.

You cannot draw or modify elements such as streets or buildings, but you can use CityCAD Viewer to change assumptions on costs, values, sustainability information and other settings for each land use.

We created CityCAD Viewer to help CityCAD users share their city models with colleagues, clients and other stakeholders. It is intended to enable easier collaboration on masterplanning projects.
