      I am an Industrial Designer, just started into a job designing shop interiors, fittings and equipment.
      We are looking at the possibilities here for future software requirements, and are interested in ArchiCAD, Viz & Rhino. Because of my Industrial Design background I would be in favour of Rhino for modelling & design (+ Penguin looks really good) and Vis for renderings and amimation. In my previous job I used SolidWorks and Max.

      I am not fully aware of the benefits of ArchiCAD, but it does look like a pretty serious option. And it would be standard kit in this industry.

      Can you please offer any opinions or views.

      archicad’s good………..for buildings, but when it comes to modelling some objects it becomes difficult, like curving in 2 different planes, it’s at that stage that you have to start learning the computer script for it, GDL, but in sayin that it’s a really great package………

      I’d give the message board on this site a try – very useful resourse for all your CAD type needs (& more)

      have you ever heard of sketchUp? I’ve been using rhino and max for a while, but sometimes sketchup turns out to be the best tool for modeling specific objects… especially macro detailing.
