Domus is a manufactured, modular-constructed housing project of PDG, Inc. These are a sampling of 3D CAD, 2D ‘shop’ drawings, and design details that I produced for the project.

The 3D models were full detail and were used to generate rendered and animated 3D visualizations, as well as component 2D shop detail from the same model. As most of the structure is 1/8″ to 3/16″ steel, everything required careful precision and planning. This isn’t ‘field fix’ architectural drawing work. 🙂

Interestingly, many aspects of what we were doing remind me of modern BIM (building information modeling) before it was a thing. The CAD package I was using had a database behind the components, which allowed us to attach material, weight, price, etc. and run calculations. We also generated the 2D views from the 3D model (a bit like Revit generates the Sheets from the live model, however it wasn’t an auto-update process). (late 1990’s – early 2000)
