The most common software used to digitize, and design is creative CAD wherein one can draw seamlessly as they would on paper with precision. It will be right to put that designers who are good with art and sketches can broaden their horizons with this course, to digitize skills and ideas.
Digitization of the work has many different applications but mostly exists in the field of graphic designing and interior designing as there's been a steep increase in the need for skills and knowledge to use CAD to produce models with accuracy. CAD as a digitizing drawing tool helps in collaborating, sharing details and communicating with vendors, builders, and architects to contributes towards integration of the interior design with the architect's design. With the use of CAD, designers can show real-time 3D models with, fixtures, furniture, appliances, etc. and make changes as per client's requirement and also reuse the designs for other drawings.
The course furnishes students with simple basics of applying general drawing skills to a digital space to create shapes, forms, and solids. It will overlay a step-by-step process from foundation level of a professional level for performing in the field of interior design through CAD. The software is also a stepping stone to further improve on 3D works. CAD as a 2D base template helps in making the required improvements on the visualization after exporting it to another software.
The course emphasizes on prerequisites for an interior designer to have the set of skills required for the profession. It will provide a vital understanding of CAD, which is the most commonly used software by varied professionals in the construction industry thus having a wide variety of possible functions within each field.
