When designing the perfect dream home, you may have a general idea as to what it looks like in your head, but when going through all the rooms and specs you desire, the final construction may end up a bit different from your initial dreams. This is where 3-D Design Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) can assist. The software renders out the blueprint so you can see a full 3-D model of your home. Understanding the flat design of a blueprint can be challenging, so Porter Construction wants to perfectly visualize what your home will look like before building begins.
Understand Your Home, Inside and Out
When you come in to Porter Construction, you’ll sit down with an expert architect who can take down what you’re looking for in a home. Whether it is a renovation or a complete home design, the architect and design contractor will take what you’re looking for and produce an initial mockup. From there, an eventual 3-D Design Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) program is used. This allows for a full visual understanding of the home. With the software, everything from walls to vents and plumbing are inserted so you can understand just how rooms come together. Often the invisible elements of a home, such as the electrical wiring and utility connections, can shift the placement of a wall or window slightly. With the CAD software, you will see exactly how the home comes together.
Previously, construction firms would show you design illustrations. These are basic drawings of one or two sides of the building. The illustrations are helpful, to an extent, but do not show you exactly how everything comes together. With 3-D Design Computer Aided Drafting (CAD), you can travel inside the home, have the contractor add in a fireplace or make subtle changes so you can see how it impacts the overall layout of the home. This way, you always know what your home will look like after construction is complete.
CAD Has Come a Long Way
CAD is vital software for most design teams. While contractors use it for better understanding themselves, the primary purpose is to offer a full illustration for you. At Porter, blueprints remain the necessary building information for on the scene work. However, CAD software has been in the design and manufacturing business for a long time. From toys to auto designs, CAD makes it possible to see how everything fits together. The vehicle you drive today first started as a rendering in a CAD program. So, when the architectural team at Porter Construction sits down and works with you, know the CAD software has remained an essential design element in nearly every industry.
Construction crews do not need CAD software while building on the scene. The blueprint provides everything they need. The 3-D Design Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) program is used to give you complete confidence in what you agree upon. Before buying or agreeing to anything, you need to know everything there is about it. You wouldn’t buy a vehicle without first seeing it. You probably wouldn’t purchase food without inspecting it first either. You expect the best and you deserve to know what the finished produce will look like. Thanks to the 3-D Design Computer Aided Drafting (CAD), you’ll always have a full and comprehensive understanding of your eventual dream home.
At Porter Construction, you not only receive the highest level of construction quality, but the highest level of professionalism. From the staff ready to answer your phone calls to creating a full rendering of your home, Porter is here for your construction needs.
