We use 3-D modeling as an aid in all of our projects. Our clients can explore the planned structure virtually both on its interior and exterior, and we can assess the effects of different times of day and changing seasons on the lighting and mood in the building.
We use ArchiCAD environment for design, and all common files are available for making prints of the models. For instance, pdf, jpg, tiff, and quicktime can be used to view the files. For planners that use different design programs, the files can be saved as 3ds or dwg formats, among others.
