BIM TEST DRIVE
Taming Technology in Service of Design
Interior Designers are currently looking into new technologies to see how they can help them improve the different aspects of their work. How does it enhance their Design, Presentation, Documentation, and Site Coordination? Can it increase their profitability?
Elizabeth Ellis, principal at Elizabeth Ellis Interior Design, puts her attention and talents to work on high-end residential interior design and commercial projects. Elizabeth has been ahead of the curve in exploiting state-of-the-art technologies, including Matterport Scanning, Point Clouds, BIM, BIMx, VR, and AR, to maximize her efficiency. We will shed light on how she streamlined her workflow to optimize her productivity and produce impactful designs.
- What new technologies can enhance the work of the designer
- How innovative methods to create impactful presentations
- How can BIM simplify key aspects of the project
Many Interior Designers unintentionally draw their projects twice. They might start designing a Floor Plan in AutoCAD. Then at some point, they switch to Sketchup and recreate the same geometry in 3D. This back-and-forth process might even get repeated for the entire duration of the project.
Does this sound familiar to you? Regardless of your specific workflow, would you not agree that it makes sense to streamline your design process and eliminate duplicated effort?
Using an intuitive, easy to implement BIM software such as Archicad can save you time. How? You draw everything just once and any change is updated on all drawings and 3D presentations….automatically. And the best part is that you can leverage your AutoCAD and Sketchup skills. You can import these files and even use their geometry.
Join us on November 23 for an engaging discussion and demonstration of the following concepts:
- Draw it once in 2D or 3D
- Bring in your DWG / PDF / SKP
- Smart objects (walls, doors, cabinets)
- Instant schedules and quantities
- Automatically generated drawings and Documents
- Beautiful, interactive 2D / 3D presentations
This presentation will show how to simplify your design process. This will help free up your time to focus on your design, your clients and on building your business.

Camille has worked for more than 15 years as an Architect, designing both residential and corporate projects. In the early 2000s, Building Information Modelling (BIM) was still in its infancy and Camille wanted to proactively promoting it. In 2007, he founded CADcentre to offer Architects and Designers high-end software solutions, with services covering all aspects of integration, utilization, training and technical support. Camille brought, with his background, a wealth of insight to the Architecture firms open to improving their workflow. Camille enjoys the human aspect in his work allowing him to meet and work along with professionals from diverse backgrounds.
