In recent years, the country has been welcoming a variety of buildings designed by foreign architects. Below, we have compiled 10 iconic works by international architects.

Which architectural software is right for me?

Published

on

Which CAD or BIM software should you use? Well, that depends. What functionality to you need? What are your priorities with regard to cost, comparability, interoperability? Are you using a Mac or a PC?

Determining which software to use can be a tricky process. There are a lot of choices our there and the marketing material doesn’t always help you understand your full options. Not to mention, software is an expensive tool that is essential to your work. You need the right tool for the work you do but you also don’t want to spend money on features you’re not going to use.

I put together the following flowchart to help you select the best software based on several criteria. The criteria listed are based solely on my opinion either using the software or through my own research. I’ve included a list of all the applications and their websites below. If I missed any programs, please let me know in the comments and I’ll update the flowchart accordingly.
