From the application planning via the Visualisation & Terrain Design to the Room Planner and Structural Analysis module.

In every design phase of the building, the complete visual representation of the building is just a mouse-click away. Every individual detail and special processing and even the most complicated connections can the visualized without any additional work.

Unique features: Point clouds generated with a 3D laser scanner can be imported into the SEMA program and further processed there.

SEMA combines the latest measurement methods with the practical functionalities of a high-tech design program. In combination with the SEMA Experience timber construction software, measuring becomes child’s play.
