Architects used to design their entire projects using pen and paper. The vision of the finished product was only in the imagination of the designer. However, there is a whole market segment of CAD tools, aiming to bring dreams to reality.
Chief Architecture Premier is a software application designed to aid architects in drafting every detail for their client's home. As most architectural home design software, it requires an impressive set of resources, ranging from multi-core processors and GBs of memory and space.
The interface is typical for this type of software. There are multiple menus and sub-windows, each with its set of settings and features. It is developed to handle all aspects of building a home. You can create plans for the structure, the interior, the garden, the electrical, heating, plumbing system and so forth.
The software offers a broad selection of elements; floors, exteriors, materials, plants, garages, and garden tools. It provides all the pieces to recreate your vision on a home. Furthermore, it provides realistic images on all the elements to create a 3D rendering of the whole project. Unfortunately, all these elements must be downloaded separately.
Alongside the regular features provided by this software, you can estimate the costs of the building process. You can edit prices for materials, add labor costs, and create a schedule for completing the construction.
In conclusion, Chief Architect Premier can be utilized by designers with their own business. It offers a myriad of features for drafting whole projects, and it can be used for smaller jobs, such as plumbing modernization, or electrical fixtures. Regarding value for money, the application offers functionality above its competitors.
