CAD Software Tools For Interior Designers

Nowadays, an interior designer must know the CAD software tools in order to be competitive and successful on the market. These tools became a fundamental part of interior design business. Even an entry level designer is expected to have knowledge of more than one CAD tool for interior designing. Hand drawn designs are old-fashioned and no one prefers them. It is much easier to design using these software tools, rather than the traditional method of hand drawn designs. In addition, the output will be simply better and more realistic.

List Of Things To Do When Starting A New ArchiCAD Project

When you are launching the ArchiCAD program, you can immediately start working. But then you are ignoring the power of this tool. This article will help you to recognize a few things you should do when you start a new project.

The ArchiCAD program is launched by double-clicking on the ArchiCAD icon. Then the Start ArchiCAD dialog box appears. You can choose either to Create a New Project or to Open a Project.

Why small companies should invest in BIM?

Do you have nagging questions about investing in BIM for your small company? You don`t know if Building Information Modelling is right for you? We recommend not to miss out the benefits of this powerful tool.

 

Every company that is involved in the business of construction should use BIM – whether small or big. The big companies have bigger projects and they have more money to invest into the latest technology, but the smaller companies are still suspicious about investing in this software. There are several myths about BIM.

Revit Automation Methods

We can define Autodesk Revit as BIM software used by architects, structural engineers, designers and it allows users to design a building and structure and its components in 3D, annotate the model with 2D drafting elements and access building information from the building model`s database. Revit is a mature product with an existence of more than 15 years, but the rate of a new feature has slowed remarkably.

 

Revit automation is the next step that follows once we know how to use Revit. Fortunately, it`s not too hard to get started. There are three methods for automating Revit. You can visually program Revit using Dynamo. You can write custom add-ins with Visual Studio. You can also write macros using Revit`s macro editor.

CAD Drawings with 3D Printing

The value of 3D printing — the ability to quickly and accurately create a physical manifestation of a virtual representation, in our case CAD Drawings — is both obvious and compelling. Surveys indicate that more than 20% of the top 300 largest brands are now using or evaluating 3D printing whether for prototyping of CAD drawings and other innovation projects or in actual production of what they sell. Over 300 universities and colleges already offer 3D coursework in their curricula – covering aspects of not only 3D printing but also 3D scanning and design. Тhere is no question that 3D has reached, as Dartmouth’s Richard D’Aveni argues in the HBR article, a tipping point.

 

“We’re seeing a level of investment in 3D printing that we have not seen in the past — not even close. It’s really very interesting, and to some extent, mind-boggling, especially given that 3D printing has been around for more than 25 years.” – Terry Wohlers, founder of Wohlers Associates

How a good CAD Design can add a value to your property?

Engaging an Architect maybe is considered as a luxury, but when you are thinking about renovation or building from scratch an architect can add value to your property and even save you money. An architect can add value at four stages in the building process, including the first stage of Schematic Design, the second stage – Design Development, the third stage – Contract Documentation and the last one – Contract Administration.

 

What is the Role of the Architect?

The general understanding of the role of the architect is that he creates architecture, but that is not enough. This role requires much more. He must be good in technology; to have a vision and to create a business strategy; to be a good organizer, listener and an excellent time manager; a good consultant and a motivating leader…Yes, people have big expectations of the architect. It’s not only the CAD drawings, as you can see. Experience has an influence on all of these areas but the success of the architect role depends on skills and personal characteristics. We can only work on our skills to be better.
