Mac architectural aids

Four new Mac-compatible architectural applications have been released, according to Architosh. The first two belong to Interstudio, which is shipping Domus.CAD 14, and DigiCAD 3D 8.5. The former allows architects to design interiors and exteriors in 3D, without the need for first creating 2D floorplans. Domus.CAD 14 adds linear fills and extended snap functions, as well as improved import/export capacity specifically addressing DWG, DXF and AutoCAD files. DigiCAD 3D is used in photogrammetry, with the update simplifying distortion correction via a user-created lens database. Domus.CAD is available as a rent-to-own application for $360; a similar plan is offered for DigiCAD 3D beginning at $160.

Also released are two new CDs from Abvent containing upwards of 1,600 shaders and 3D objects. The Industrial Details disc contains 100 objects for the company's Artlantis suite which includes pallet jacks, conveyor belts, warning signs and more. The Architectural disc has 200 Artlantis objects for visualization, including everything from garden furniture to elevators and escalators. Both discs are expected to ship in the near future from Objects Online.
