Graphisoft Archicad is a model based architectural CAD software that we utilize to for designs and documents. By modeling our projects, we’re able to study and enhance them in ways that 2D just doesn’t allow. Not only does the added dimensionality help us better communicate ideas to Clients and Contractors, the modeling gives us the ability and confidence to dig deeper into designs and reduces the likelihood of errors and miscommunications. This makes for more efficient and better designed projects.
BIMx is a free app that our clients can download to view our Virtual Models on their handheld devices or desktops. It’s important to us that our Clients experience the designs because we want them involved and empowered in the process. It’s their home or project and our software allows them to interact with the design in a way that until recently wasn’t possible.
The latest rendering software has it’s roots in the gaming industry. By incorporating it into our process, we’re able to deliver pretty stunning architectural presentations.
Our Software allows us to produce actual 3D models of our projects using our Axiom 3D printers. Not only are they great for HOA and County meetings, the architectural models are a hit with our Clients.
We got the drone to help us document our projects, but soon realized it had uses beyond that, enhancing our architecture and client experience. We use it to better understanding sites pre design, convey information to clients and contractors during construction and capture views that we can couple with modeling to generate images of structures in their context before they’re complete. It’s an amazing piece of technology.
We’re working on the next level using our software and others to deliver a completely immersive experience for our clients. When it comes to experiencing the design – virtual reality allows you to feel the space before it’s built, giving our clients time to make decisions and see the effects.
