Architectural Software for IntelliCAD and AutoCAD
There's a special feeling you get from handling a
tool that's perfectly suited to its job. A tool whose design anticipates your
needs, and whose function expresses your intent with accuracy.
Of all the drafting and design software published
today, only one product can claim such esteem from architects: ArchT
architectural software, the acclaimed design tool from Autodsys.
Features Turn Creativity Into Productivity
ArchT's thoughtfully-implemented features help turn
your best ideas into fully-documented and detailed designs. Quickly draw
essential elements such as walls, windows, doors, roofs, stairways, water
closet stalls, handicap stalls, structural grids, and parking stalls using
ArchT's library of standard styles. Edit and preview styles in an easy-to-use
dialog box, or even create new styles to perfectly suit a given project. To
review or present your design in progress, switch to a 3D view whenever you
wish. ArchT also features dozens of handy utilities to speed 2D production
Access ArchT commands via your choice of three
concise pulldown menus, a customizable toolbar, or in Navigator, ArchT's visual
interface. Navigator gives you quick visual access to all the commands, plus
previews and insertion options for ArchT's comprehensive block library. This
meticulously drawn library contains over 7,000 2D and 3D blocks for commercial,
residential and sitework design, plus ADA symbols. Categories include
furniture, fixtures, tags, doors, windows, sitework, ADA, retail, and civic,
with additional symbols for HVAC, plumbing and electrical.
"Draw it Once"
To create a successful design, architect and client
must effectively communicate their ideas. This often requires multiple
presentations as a design matures. Design revisions typically required costly
and time-consuming redrawing.
Continued development of this sensible approach makes
ArchT the most advanced, most mature architectural software available for
IntelliCAD and AutoCAD users today.
Our "Draw it Once" concept has guided the creation and implementation of ArchT
from day one. No one enjoys drawing the same thing over and over as other
elements of the design change. That's why we designed ArchT to handle the
geometry while you explore options, creating and revising until you reach a
satisfying conclusion. In their 5-Star endorsement, CADALYST magazine calls our
approach "intelligent, almost magical." Once you experience it, you too will
discover just how liberating "Draw it Once" can be.
CAD Management Tools
The "Draw it Once" philosophy applies to both the
creation and management of a design. To achieve consistency throughout a
project, specify "styles" for essential building elements. To establish a
layering system, pick one of eight pre-defined layering systems, including
A.I.A. short and long formats, or define your own. You'll discover that ArchT
only creates layers when objects get placed on them, so drawing size is kept to
ArchT integrates easily with other IntelliCAD and
AutoCAD applications, and provides direct links to the built-in rendering
features of AutoCAD 2000-2004 and AccuRender3, the Architectural Graphics
Standards CD-ROM from John Wiley & Sons, and the Precision Estimating
Series from Timberline Software (an extra-charge option). Even IntelliCAD and
AutoCAD stations without ArchT can open and edit your designs.
Architects Who Know
Leading firms use ArchT for commercial,
institutional, residential and facilities management projects. Autodsys is
proud to develop exemplary software used by firms such as Hellmuth Obata +
Kassabaum (HOK), SRG Partnership, Zimmer Gunsul Frasca, and other leading firms
across North America and around the world.
ArchT offers demonstrable benefits to your
architectural practice that improve the quality of your work while reducing
costs. You'll find ArchT to be the fastest, most affordable way to increase
