From Vision to Reality

Wednesday, February 21st, 2018

In the ever changing world of technology, architectural CAD software has moved on significantly since the days of the drawing board.

The most current software has revolutionised the way we work. State of the art software forms part of the Building Information Modelling (BIM) system, which allows the sharing of design information between all parties involved in the construction process.

We can work in 2D whilst the software builds the design into a three dimensional (3D) model, giving clients a clearer idea of the design concept.

Here in the office we have gone a step further. By using a 3D printer, we are able to bring to life the 3D model by producing a small scale building model. This gives clients the chance to pick up, turn around and inspect their concept design.

The pictures show how for one client the design concept has become a reality in 3D.
