How 3D CAD Can Enhance the Construction Process
At NBC Construction, we are constantly looking to utilise the latest developments in construction technology. By implementing 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) in construction you will be able to overcome the shortcomings associated with manual drafting and elevate your property designs. Read on to find out more!
No More Paper Trail
Traditional construction design methods involve presenting ideas on large sheets of paper. As you can imagine, this paper builds up and needs to be stored to prevent it being lost. By using 3D CAD in construction you can store designs on your computer and eliminate the need for copious amounts of physical storage space.
Easy To Share
By using 3D CAD you will always have a digital copy of designs making it extremely easy to share construction plans with subcontractors and clients, ensuring that everybody is kept in the loop. It also unlocks the potential of cloud computing, allowing plans to be viewed by multiple parties from any location.
Higher Quality Design
The key to achieving high quality designs is to employ a consistent style throughout. This can be difficult when manually drafting plans as it requires meticulous accuracy to maintain consistent line types, line weights and dimensions. Using 3D CAD in construction allows a consistent style to be used throughout and will enhance the appearance of your final designs.
Being able to construct a 3-dimensional representation of the completed house adds huge value to any construction project. It enables both the contractor and the client to envisage what the finished house will look like and decide whether it meets their original vision.
When hand drafting a design, you have very little wiggle room when it comes to changing designs and a complete re-sketch is often required. By using 3D CAD in construction you are able to break your designs down and only edit the sections that need changing. Not only does 3D CAD save time but it also allows the client to have more creative input, enabling a truly personal customer experience for each client.
