Cadonia Australia to project manage tenders for additions to Harry Seidler designed building

In recent months Cadonia Australia has been working on the design and council approval for the addition of covered walkways on a Harry Seidler designed building in the Sydney suburb of Edgecliff.


Harry Seidler is an icon of Australian architecture and often credited with bringing modernism to Australia. He is best known for changing the skyline of Sydney’s CBD and contributing useable, public spaces to the city. Australia Square (1961), the world’s tallest light-weight concrete building at the time, is a case in point. For more than 50 years, Seidler produced distinctive, bold modern architecture, including houses, apartments, offices and embassies—in Australia and internationally. The 8 x 3 bedroom residential apartment block was originally designed in 1966 by the acclaimed Australian architect Harry Seidler (1923–2006).


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.


Top CAD Software for CAD Designers

Today, CAD Software has become an essential part of CAD design business. There are a lots of programs that CAD designers and architects are using for doing their job. Our teams use all of these programs including Z-brush, Photoshop, and Adobe Premiere. The most of it depends from our client’s needs and the complexity of the project. They are the most used programs all over the world, so we are trying to follow the trends. In this article, in short words, we are presenting all of the popular programs:


Updates for AutoCAD 2015 – Status Bar Icons

Autodesk has offered new options for users to increase their (our) productivity. We are trying to follow them and share our experience with you.


Just to define, AutoCAD is a CAD (Computer Aided Design or Computer Aided Drafting) software application for 2D and 3D design and drafting. It was one of the first CAD programs to run on personal computers. Now I will discuss some of the updates of AutoCAD 2015, concentrating on the controlling of the Status bar Icons.
