DigiCad 3D 9 – The latest in photogrammetry

Interstudio has released DigiCad 3D 9 for Mac Os X. The Windows version will be out soon. The new version contains lots of new features, including: New algorithms for transforming images, for image rectification and irregular surfaces, too. Not only have we made the function much faster, it is also more accurate outside of attach…

CAD for Mac

The evolution of CAD on Macintosh


When the first Macintosh 128 K came out in 1984, it had 3 programs, each of which – in their own way – were the basis for generations of other programs, many of which are commonly used today.

These programs were MacWrite, MacPaint and MacDraw (for vectorial drawing).

All three used the new graphic user interface and a new pointing device called a “mouse”. Also, they were WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) – what you see on the monitor is what comes out when printed.

Nowadays this seems normal, but then, it wasn’t. In fact, even today many CAD users, particularly AutoCad™, do not adopt this philosophy, and the video and print versions of the drawing are completely different.

MacWrite was the prototype of all word processing software that followed, including Microsoft Word, whose first version was created on Macintosh.

Domus.Cad 16 – What’s new?

Vectorial rendering, the new vectorial rendering engine allows the user to obtain editable elevations, sections, perspectives, axonometries and in a way as the interactive 3D view, generating high quality and very detailed drawings, colored with the same colors as the interactive 3D view. New graphic interface, the palettes are functionally modified and re-arranged, grouping icons with similar…

DigiCad 3D 8.5 : What’s new?

DigiCad 3D is already well-known as a state-of-the-art program for the photogrammetry and cartography sectors.  Now it is offers some brilliant new functions for working with photographic images. Digital cameras are now widely used in architectural photogrammetry.  Unfortunately their big advantages (speed and ease of use) are often outweighed by the disadvantage of their not-very-wide-angle…

Architect Wendy Weatley from Australia

The following excerpts are from an interview with Australian architect Wendy Wheatley, Domus.Cad user for some time now. The article, entitled “Wendy Wheatley : Domus.Cad for residential use Down Under”, was published on Creative Engineering’s website : http://www.createng.com.au/projects/wheatley.htm On being asked if Domus.Cad was quick to pick up, Wendy replied : When I saw how…
