ISD Online Help / Documents

This page provides you with links to the Online Helps* for our products HiCAD (2-D/3-D for all industries) and HELiOS (PDM/PLM) and other tools. In addition, you will find links to other important documents here, such as the "Getting Started“ guide resp. the "Installation Notes" etc.

Please choose the desired product version from the selection box first.

Please note that the PDF preview in the HELiOS Desktop no longer works with Acrobat Reader DC from Version 2021.011.20039. As an alternative, we recommend Sumatra PDF (64-bit and the non-portable version) for HELiOS from Version 2702.3, 2800.3 and 2801.0. Before you install it, you need to uninstall all PDF Readers. During installation, click on Options (bottom left) and choose Install for all users and Let Windows show previews of PDF documents. You may also need to modify the hel_preview.ini configuration file if Acrobat Reader is explicitly defined there for PDF preview.
If an update to a new HELiOS version is to be avoided, Foxit Reader (up to max. Version 11) can be used.

*  As we constantly update our Online Help you should clear the cache of your browser from time to time. This is particularly recommended after an update to a Major Release or a Service Pack.
