In this introductory class to CAD for interior architecture, students were introduced to SketchUp, AutoCAD, Revit and Photoshop, among other tools. This was a hybrid class, allowing for considerable freedom of study time. As a student and a self-employed professional, the convenience of a hybrid or online class, is ideal. Overall, I feel much more confident in my understanding of the tool sets individual to each program we explored, and I believe it will empower me to have greater freedom of creation and design intent communication for future real-world projects.Below are just a few examples of my projects from the class.



This is an example floor plan we worked on in AutoCAD. AutoCAD was less difficult to use and navigate than I had initially thought. It does come with its challenges, but I found it to be a very effective tool for accurate floor plans and elevations (not pictured).

This is an example of a floor plan developed Revit, then detailed in Photoshop. We learned how to use Photoshop to apply textures, materials, and shadows to our renderings and floor plans to create more realistic visualizations of the design intent. 


3d rendering hybrid

The above is an example of a 3D rendering I output from an interior design in Revit. I then used Photoshop to add more features and details. I found Revit to be an incredibly useful tool, and more efficient to use than some of the other programs we worked in. It does of course has some limitations and challenges, as all programs do.
