Irrigation design is a uniquely demanding and precise science. A software that can accommodate this rigorous engineering process isn’t just helpful – it’s imperative. Simplify your process for even the most complex designs using Irrigation F/X – a comprehensive irrigation design plugin for AutoCAD.

Irrigation F/X can handle the most exacting standards and complex designs.

Create a schematic layout to plan your system before placing a single head. Specify equipment and add pressure and flow data, all from a dialog box in AutoCAD. Lay out and size your lateral and mainline pipe faster than ever. Check for errors and ensure uniform coverage by barely lifting a finger. Rest easy that everything will be accurate. Generate instant schedules and reports, and send them to spreadsheets. Multiple pumps, sources, or elevation changes? No problem.
Calculations are automatic and based on the Hazen-Williams Formula.
You provide the layout – we’ll handle the rest.

See Our Latest Client-Inspired Features in Action


We’re constantly evolving our irrigation system design software based on feedback from our clients. It’s how we continue to give you the tools you need to work faster and more efficiently. Each week, we produce a short Power Tip video (about 2 minutes in length, on average) showcasing our latest user–requested features.


Piping & Pipe Sizing

Draw mainline and lateral pipe, and size it automatically with a click.
It’s just one of many ways we help you save time and ensure complete accuracy.


Piping Lateral Lines:

Customize to Your Standards

Your design standards are unique. They don’t just set you apart from the competition – they make your drawings look great. We give you the tools to enforce and improve your standards across all your plans.

Reports & Schedules

Instantly produce and customize any schedules or reports. Leave the calculations to us.



Manufacturer Database

Choose equipment from a database of more than 30 manufacturers, including complete performance data and pre-assigned symbols.

Take Away the Guesswork!

Our Schematic Irrigation tools help you visualize your plan before you lay a pipe or place a single piece of equipment.


Create Flawless Plans

Errors are inevitable; undetected errors are not.
Our error-checking tools will find every piping error, giving you the assurance that your plan is completely accurate.

Constant Content Creation and Improvement

For more than 10 years, we've worked continuously, and with our clients' input in mind, to add a wealth of content and carry out increasingly valuable updates to our software.

Symbols, Symbols, Symbols

 

Our content generation team is constantly busy creating new irrigation symbol blocks to give you more variety in your plans. Our system of symbol families provides a default organizational structure for assigning symbols, ensuring that you’re using a logical symbol for each head, valve, and auxiliary equipment model you use.

Your Manufacturer Connection

 

We have agreements in place with 35 irrigation equipment manufacturers to build their components into our software – including pre-assigned equipment blocks, all associated performance data, and manufacturer-provided details. We’ve digitized all these manufacturers’ catalogs and connected them to AutoCAD, giving you access to the latest models and data, as well as eliminating the need to flip through paper catalogs as you spec equipment.

Instant Inventory

 

Spray heads, drip emitters, valves, backflow devices, controller and controller accessories, booster pumps, thrust blocks – we’ve got them all and more. If you have a favorite equipment model, chances are it’s in our equipment database. Spec a staggering variety of equipment from an AutoCAD dialog box.

We Make Software Development a Two-Way Street

 

How many software companies give you a say in the development process? Not a lot! Our guiding philosophy is based on listening to our clients and giving them the tools they need. That’s why every new feature we roll out is a direct response to a client’s request for added functionality. We also encourage our clients to vote on the priority of new features.
