ART (Architectural Tools) 2017 is a free AutoCAD plug-in. Its specialized set of tools speed up the work in Architectural filed. They consist of many small routines, libraries, styles, templates... All content is arranged on Tool Palettes for quick access and clear overview.
On A-Architecture palette there are many routines, that can speed up drafting of architectural plan or creating a 3D model. They are divided into settings, 2D and 3D part with descriptive icons and text. Help for all routines is available.
There are programs for fast creation of Doors, Windows, Stairs in plan and section, Sections…Measurements can be set as parameters inside a dialog.
You can create simple solid houses by defining 4 plan points and heights. Routine offers very fast creation of schematic village or town models.
Routine for drawing simple doors and windows helps designing architecture models. Elements are separated by layer, so you can attach different materials. All resulting objects are solids, so further editing and section creation is possible.
Create simple 3D Terrain models by selecting Lines, Polylines or Points with proper Z coordinate. Program makes Triangulation and creates Surface terrain (3D Face objects) that can be used for visualizations.
Create simple roof constructions with defining up to 4 main points on roof corners. Construction is drawn automatically by defining element dimensions in the dialog. Model is made of 3D Faces and can be used for visualizations.
PRESET VISUAL STYLES
Enjoy quick switching among different display modes – from 2D wireframe to 3D realistic perspective with shadows with 1 click. Also other styles are available, like technical with dashed hidden lines or colored sketch.
PRESET TEXT AND DIMENSION STYLES FOR DIFFERENT SCALES
If you use different drawing units like millimeters (mm), centimeters (cm) or meters (m), just pick the scale you want to plot with and a Text style or Dimension style will be activated, that will produce a 2,5mm text height plotted on paper. You will never have to recalculate again. It works only with ART Template!
Template has all needed settings prepared for you to start drawing Architectural plans with cm as drawing unit. It has preloaded linetypes, styles, layouts with paper formats.
