The AEC Associates Architectural CAD Services have changed the face of the building industry over the past few years. The fast and accurate Architectural CAD services have ensured that the days of the traditional drawing boards and tracing papers; pens, pencils and ink; sweating men and pocket calculators are over forever. We are all quite familiar with CAD software and their working, yet it’s interesting to see how Wikipedia defines this new-age miracle: “Computer-aided design (CAD) is the use of computer systems to assist in the creation, modification, analysis, or optimization of a design.”
Like a dream:
Modern-day CAD software is just like a dream for those who have seen the days of slow and cumbersome manual design and drafting process. Their use helps enhance the productivity of the designer, improve the quality of the design, expedite designing and drafting work, improve communications among the participants through better documentation and produce a database for the construction process and record keeping. Architectural CAD services give a new dimension to designing and drafting work by improving efficiency and reducing errors.
Architects usually get offers to design all sorts of buildings though they may specialize only in a few building types. It’s impractical for them to either refuse these offers or employ new people for every new project. Architectural CAD services, being an assortment of experienced and skilled professionals with expertise in different building types, may be employed for drafting and designing of all types of buildings; from small residential types (houses) to the largest commercial and industrial structures like shopping malls, hospitals and warehouses.
Accurate drawings and views:
CAD software enables you to work not just in two dimensions (2D) and three dimensions (3D); they also allow rotations in three dimensions, thus allowing viewing of a designed object from any desired angle. Even an inside out view is possible if required. This feature allows the architects to easily and clearly explain the intricacies of their design to clients and contractors.
Modern software facilitate production of multi-layered drawings which can superimpose various activities and facilities. This makes understanding the design and coordination at work sites simpler and more efficient.
An increasing number of architectural firms have start to depend on the expertise of Architectural CAD services specializing in different building types. This saves them time and cost and gives them assured quality. They are also spared the trouble to hire and fire employees each time they get a new project or complete an existing one.
