3D, real-time, dynamic BIM software is used more and more to increase productivity in building design and construction. The AEC industry expects BIM to transform new business processes to improve productivity and efficiency.
However, many AEC customers still use 2D documents because some governments do not accept 3D model applications to issue building permits. Also, other stakeholders may require 2D documents.
Approximately 60 percent of the AEC industry’s IT investment is still in 2D CAD software and maintenance costs. This is a huge obstacle to fully embracing the benefits of BIM.
To address the above challenges, Dassault Systèmes offers DraftSight®, a free 2D professional CAD solution, enabling investment in sophisticated 3D modeling and providing a systematic project backbone.
