Have you ever wished to convert your ideas from sketch to 3D in a while?

The design industry in general has evolved quickly in the recent few years. Especially the graphic design industry. It has seen an avalanche of new software that are challenging the well settled legacy products: online tools transforming 2D into 3D or sketches into illustrator files; from sketch to 2D, from sketch to 3D, from ideas to files…

All of these new tools follow the common trend of being simple, powerful and being on cloud. The willingness of the new world software to adapt to the changing needs of the audiences has helped them break the monopoly of old generation software that tend to be rigid and stiff.

Architectural design industry somehow remains fairly untouched by the sprouting cloud-based tools that are slowly taking over almost every other industry by storm. The reason for this could be endless.

However, working closely with the architects, Snaptrude realized that on any good day, an architect just loves to get creative with a piece of paper and pen. In an ideal situation architects don’t want to rely on software, they are artists who desire to go deep with their creativity without worrying about learning complicated tools.

They observed that in a focus group of AEC researchers architects were always busy with tedious designing process on multiple software – It not only paints a very fragmented picture that architects deal with but also makes evident the lack of an exclusive tool for architects, customized to their needs.

I saw that the architects would begin with a concept sketch and then they would move on to Auto CAD for drawing a digitized version of the sketch. Once done, they would create the visualization in Sketch Up or any other 3D tool and post approvals they would take the whole thing to Revit and start again from scratch to make a BIM model!” said Altaf Ganihar, CEO and Founder at Snaptrude

The architect’s design process is sadly ridden by many crevices bridged by multiple software and plug-ins, realized Altaf.

Looking at the whole mess, Snaptrude were determined to solve this problem at the earliest and being a millennial himself Altaf understood the demands of the future. They drew a road map for  Snaptrude where unnecessary processes that architectural designers go through were eliminated. Snaptrude was conceptualized as a seamless, easy to use, data-drive concept design tool for architects.
