Irrigation Design System

Model Maker is the only software package available that provides user-friendly and well supported functions for DTM, CAD and Irrigation design, all in one package. The system operates independent of other commercial software and provides its own plotting and reporting capabilities.

Model Maker’s irrigation design system is made up from the Model Maker DTM software modules 1,2,6 & 17 and is internationally marketed as Irri-Maker by Model Maker Systems from South Africa and Senninger Irrigations, Inc. from Orlando, Florida in the USA.
