Top 5 Most Used Architect Programs

Do you want to know what the architects currently use to create some home designs? We have collected popular programs, let’s see.

Autodesk AutoCAD

Autodesk AutoCAD is a computer-assisted design software (Computer Aided Drafting / Design, CAD) that can support both 2D and 3D operations. The development company is Autodesk. Even in the software market, there are many CAD programs. Engineering, architecture and various industries of organizations, both government and private organizations around the world, most commonly used AutoCAD because it is a software with high capabilities. The three-dimensional modeling. The designer can control the drawing. Change the view in all directions around Determine the characteristics of the drawing as needed. With commands and powerful help tools Helps save time and money, making AutoCAD a good choice in high resolution and precision applications.


Sketchup is a program created under the concept of combining advantages from prototyping. With a pencil to write down
Paper and using digital media to combine applications Effective It has an intelligent guidance system that uses the points, lines, surfaces to be used as a reference in modeling. Making the job creation like Smooth and fun It also has an easy-to-use interface.
The 3D model created in SketchUp looks like a surface model, forming a 3-dimensional surface, making it inside the hollow model. Unlike creating a 3D model, Solid is similar to clay molding, making it within a ton model. In addition, the curve characteristics in SketchUp are due to consist of The small straight line together, the rounded surface is the composition of the small flat surface together. The model is therefore not as smooth as creating a curve from a true curve, but good results. Is to make use of less resources File size is not large And fast processing

There are many programs for creating 3D applications. Different with features, usage, features and price from free to use properly.


Lumion is a popular virtual scenery program. Because it is easy to use Fast and save time in work, can quickly render images, which will allow the designer to reduce work time and create beautiful works in a short time, able to support object models from external programs Various forms

Autodesk 3ds max

Autodesk 3Ds Max is a graphical computer program for Three-dimensional models and animations Works in the form of a three-dimensional principle, which has an x-axis, y-axis and Z-axis together,  able to create curve shape easily, able to create in realistic scenes and good at render.

Autodesk Revit

Autodesk Revit is software for Autodesk. Is a software to help design the building work, especially in the form of CAD, using the principle of building a building information simulation system or building a building information model (Building Information Modeling) instead of drawing. By using the Parametric Change Engine, which will be followed by the construction model, various composite items, landscape images and rough construction materials The form of usage will be three-dimensional.

This is a popular program used in architects. Also, we recommend a program that will help analyze the flow of wind in the house. To help design Can be applied to all of the above programs, that is WindmeeWindmee aims to develop simple automatic wind simulation from house, condo, room or any building floor plan image instead of creating a 3d model for building analysis, our process is based on image processing that recognizes and analyzes a image of building plan, then uses it to simulate airflow in realtime building simulation.
