Over the past few years some of the most advanced or awe-inspiring software products have been designed and manufactured by software developing companies, which are used extensively by building professionals such as drafters, modelers, architects and engineers etc. One such software manufacturing company, which is working constantly for empowering architects and engineers in terms of providing them with advanced tools and technologies is Autodesk. It’s a company which has manufactured some of the most advanced software products for executing drafting, Modeling, clash detection, and architectural rendering services.
Today all the Autodesk products such as AutoCAD, Revit ( Revit Architecture, Revit Structure and Revit MEP) Navisworks, and 3dx Max etc., are used for developing highly precise design for building disciplines such as architecture, structure and MEP. AutoCAD is mainly associated with the execution of drafting services, during which detailed and informative 2D digital drawings are generated for different building disciplines. That means this particular software is utilised for creating drawings such as site plans, floor plans, elevations, section drawings, assembly drawings, single part drawings, fabrication and erection drawings and general arrangement drawings etc. All these drawings remain really crucial for architects and engineers when it comes to obtaining or referring geometrical information.
However, apart from these drawings or construction drawings for that matter building professionals also create 3D models for architecture, structure and MEP, which provide a far too advanced information to them. Multidiscipline models are normally developed through Building Information Modeling software like Revit, Tekla and ArchiCAD etc., and these models provide better Visualisation, when it comes to referring building design. Building Information Models are used extensively for developing high-end 4D simulations. Simulations become really pivotal to architects and engineers, when it comes to viewing entire construction process step by step in order to gain a detailed idea of the challenges which can be faced by them during final construction. In addition to that photorealistic architectural rendering services can also be executed for building projects so that all the building stakeholders can see the entire design of the building in the most realistic manner possible. Bothe architectural images and 3D models can be given photorealism, with the assistance of advanced rendering software like 3ds Max, and these models as well as images can also be utilised for gaining financial help from the banks or for obtaining building permits.
