Punch! Software, the home design software market leader seven years running, today announced the acquisition of CADSoft Solutions Inc. (CSI). CSI is a leading provider of precision based computer aided design (CAD) applications for Windows® and Macintosh® platforms.

It extends our offerings to include precision CAD products suitable for the general architectural and mechanical CAD communities," says Paul Bay, Punch! Software CEO.

With over two million units shipped and seven of the top eleven retail home design products, Punch! Software will use the same blueprint for success to introduce general purpose CAD to its established retail, internet, and professional sales channels.
