QwikDraw Interface.
QwikDraw is a sophisticated job layout entry and control center written for the fence industry. One sketch can combine up to seven different heights and types of fence into one estimate and enables you to produce alternate estimates in seconds.

QwikDraw auto-detects the operating system for each computer and configures itself for that computer. QwikDraw supports handwriting recognition on Tablet PCís and a mouse and keypad on all PCís.

All you do is draw a rough sketch on the drawing screen with a mouse or stylus. Then enter the footages for each stretch and pick gate types. Thatís it. Clicking the Apply Scale button converts your rough drawing into a perfectly scaled job layout which can be sent to any Scratch Builder fence estimating program.

QwikDraw lets you choose which post to swing your gates from and will swing them in or out so you get a perfect site plan. This information is sent to the Scratch Builder fence estimating programs to calculate exact material lists, to produce estimates, contracts, invoices, and more.

One sketch can be used to estimate chainlink, wood, vinyl, wire panel or ornamental fence. Itís perfect for figuring the alternate estimates that customers demand and that can consume so much of your time.


Displays line posts and line post spacing.
We have recently added a couple of frequently requested features to QwikDraw. Probably the most popular request we've had was to mark the line posts on the layout sketch. Now, not only does QwikDraw mark the line posts, it also calculates proportional line post spacing for each stretch of fence and can display it on the drawing.

It can calculate different proportional post spacings for different types of fence on multiple style jobs. When you print this site plan on your CFS Job Worksheet or Packing List your crew won't have to calculate (or miscalculate) proportional post spacing ever again.


QwikDraw feet and inch measurement input.
Because of the need for extreme precision in some of our estimating calculations, especially when it comes to custom routing vinyl, we have added an alternate method of entering stretches in QwikDraw in feet and inches, with a precision down to one eighth of an inch. You don't have to use this feature often. You can still round to the nearest foot for most estimating. But the precision is there for when you need it, as when you are called upon for custom fabrication.

QwikDraw will continue to be included in all future versions of CFS as an incentive to stay on the current version. While all other CFS programs will continue to run even if you never upgrade, QwikDraw will expire sometime after the release of the next CFS version. Donít worry, it will warn you well ahead of time. You wonít want to be without it.


Advanced QwikDraw Features

Alternate Fence Estimates

 
Alternate Estimates

QwikDraw is a powerful job entry interface to our scratch builder estimating programs. One sketch can estimate multiple sizes and or types of chain link, wood, vinyl, and ornamental fence. Its perfect for figuring the alternate estimates or options that so many customers want and consume so much of your time.

Easy Visual Job Entry

Simply draw a rough sketch of the fence estimate on the QwikDraw interface with a stylus or mouse. At this point enter the footage for each stretch and select gate types. That's it. Clicking the scale button converts your rough drawing into a perfectly scaled job layout ready to be sent to any of the Scratch Builder fence estimating programs. Qwikdraw can flip gates from left to right and swing them in or out so you get a perfect site plan. QwikDraw fence layouts are also sent to Job Sketch for enhanced detailed drawing capabilites.


Estimate each fence type separately then merge them together.


Free with all current CFS / VFT systems

We include QwikDraw absolutely free of charge with every CFS current version system. QwikDraw will continue to be included in all future versions of CFS as a perk to stay on the current version. Don't worry it will warn you well before it expires. We are betting you will love QwikDraw, we know it will help you sell more fence with less effort.


Autonaming Convention

Automatic Estimate Naming

QwikDraw includes estimate naming and numbering logic for saving and recalling sketches, estimates, contracts and all other reports.
