PPD – Professional Parcours Design


…is available with us. The latest version is 2016. Let us advise you.

A computer can neither compose a successful music-hit by itself, nor can a computer design a course plan by pressing one of its buttons. In our sport ideas, feelings and experience of course designers produce successful courses. But…

…with our planning software “PPD” the laptop helps in no time to design a course. Few mouse clicks, and you have a new showground in matching scale. Different type of jumps, the track, distances between obstacles, dimensions and material of obstacles – all appears in seconds on the screen and can be edited. “PPD” even measures the length of a course.

Everything is printed in a handy A4 format, and thus working sketches for the ring crew, course plans for judges, press and TV are available with one click. Plans are stored in the computer and assist in future planning.

“Professional Parcours Design” is unique worldwide and is used by most international course designers.


Latest Updates

  • The use of the function “Measure the Course Length” has been simplified significantly. Through the menu item “PPD” in the menu bar course length
    (New: in segments of 5m) the length of the course can be measured and taken into the header line directly.
  • User-friendly startup of program; the scale and the spread of the obstacles can be set automatically in this process.

  • Shapes on the drawing sheet will be put in scale distance to each other.
