THE DESIGN SOFTWARE AND ENGINEERING BEHIND THE WORLD’S FASTEST CAR

The British Bloodhound SSC is set to smash the current world land-speed record of 763mph (1,600kph) to become the fastest car ever made. The world’s fastest car is set to race against the clock this year on a lakebed in the South African desert. And it’s not only about winning a title, the car forms part of a British education initiative to promote science and technology in schools…

ACHIEVING EFFECTIVE AND ECONOMICAL FACALITIES FLOOR PLANNING WITH 3D BUILDING DESIGN

Designing a manufacturing floor plan that is both effective and economical is not an easy task. Fortunately, there are technological advancements that help you perform your job as a facilities layout designer more easily than ever before. We know that your aim is to create an efficient, productive and safe environment for workers who will be there on a daily basis. 3D building design will make your life easier – from digital prototyping which will show how buildings behave under real life conditions before the first brick is even laid, to Building Information Modeling (BIM) which will enable collaboration from all role players right from the get-go…

CREATING THE ILLUSION OF SPACE WITH SMART SMALL OFFICE DESIGN

We are living in a tough economic climate and office space has become more and more expensive, with the result that companies are choosing spaces that are smaller than before.

The same applies to offices – prospective clients will judge your business on the impression that they get from your office’s decor. That’s why corporates and homeowners equally need to get on board with adopting design trends that make the most of small spaces. Here are some tips that will help you to make sure that your small office design and small home design is on point…

ARCHITECTURE FUNCTIONAL DESIGNS VERSUS SUPERSTITIONS

Superstition in architecture is surprisingly pervasive. You would think, in the ever-advancing world of 3D software design and digital prototyping, that the old ways might be at odds with the new technology and functional design. But take a second to think about how many people you know who still throw a pinch of salt over their shoulders or knock on wood to ward off bad luck…

BUILDING SIMULATION AND SIMULATING ENERGY MODELS

Technology has changed the face of architecture. The advent of 3D software has changed the way that buildings are designed and one aspect that has been overhauled is energy modelling. It’s amazing to think that prior to computer software this process used to be done on paper, or with scale models. Buildings used to have to be completed and observed for how they dealt with energy and then adapted after the fact…
