Drawing Shortcuts - Digital Drawing Tools (RV-10375)
In recent years, architects and their clients have begun to rediscover the benefits of using traditional imaging techniques such as sketching, drawing, and physical modeling to communicate their design concepts. As digital imaging and 3-D visualization have become ever more sophisticated (and complicated), many small offices have been forced to make expensive investments in time and software in order to remain current with the quickly evolving technology. Now, there is a new trend in visual communication that combines the best hand-drawing techniques, advanced reprographics, digital imaging, photography, and computer-generated information. In this course we will take a brief glimpse into the wonderful possibilities of using digital and traditional visualization techniques. Some examples are quick and easy to create, while others are very time-consuming and complicated.
