One of the most essential processes in any project.
CAD (computer-aided design) software is used by architects, engineers, drafters, artists, and others to create precision drawings or technical illustrations. CAD software can be used to create 2D drawings or 3D models.
CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing) is software used to design hundreds of objects, materials and components that are used in a building project.
Collating and sorting this information into ‘families’ is a required process in any major build.
At Drafting Solutions this is a process in which we excel. We create ‘libraries’ of products using the Revit software, enabling accurate budgeting and timely delivery.
Our 3D modelling software Revit allows us to produce accurate 3D architectural and structural models that we use in conjunction with our services models when either of these models is not available.
While producing the 3D models, full single environment coordination with structure and other services can be viewed through a rendered walkthrough software called Navisworks. The model can be rendered with suitable finishes to simulate various surfaces i.e. concrete, steel or wood. Colour painted finishes and lighting effects can be used to produce a photo realistic scale model of the project for use in presentations.
