An Introduction to Engineering Software
We are very blessed to live in a generation with technology becoming more and more advanced, helping us come up with better, faster and more efficient ways of doing things. The computer-based drawings used for planning interiors, product designs and architectural structures are benefits given by CAD designs. Gone are the days when architects and engineers use architectural blueprints, pencils, compasses and templates. CAD software was able to improve the architecture industry. 2D drafting by hand is replaced by CAD and CAAD software due to its efficiency. Instead of rubbing out or scrunching up the paper, you can undo actions using this software with just a click of a button.
The only difference CAD and CAAD has is the than computer aided architectural design software that consists of more architectural-specific elements, other than that they are very similar in concept. Accurate and complete drawings are produced by both types of software.
One huge advantage of using CAD or CAAD software (over hand drawings) is the automation feature- this feature automatically draws a digital representation of your design from previous drawings. The intelligent software is able to generate a bird’s eye view just by using your 3D front view drawing from CAD for its reference. This software will save you a lot of time, you no longer have to draw every view of your building, all it requires is one 3D view and you are done.
This software benefits architects because it allows them to manipulate and modify images with ease.
Sketching by hand will be obsolete because the CAD software produces realistic, accurate and comprehensive drawings.This software is able to produce a more realistic representation of photos and has the ability to create other views from a previous drawing. It’s not possible to start from scratch when using CAD, when you decide to draw a building it gives you access to existing building designs and gives you a base-point to start on. Without the help of CAD, architects are required to trace over old plans when choosing to use precious designs- this consumes a lot of time and energy.
Planning buildings is a great experience for architects and architectural firms because of the CAD software. This software saves time and hassle for both the architect and the client if the client desires to change an aspect of the design, the software makes this possible with just a few clicks. With CAD interior design software eliminating the need to draft and redraft, more time is focused on modification of the designs giving engineers an edge in today’s competitive marketplace.
