CAD Architectural Design
A look at how CAD can and is used in Architecture

Is CAD Design Now Expected? March 26, 2018

CAD design uses computer technology to simulate a space, showing constructions within the room as well as measurements. It is a good way for designers to communicate ideas to customers, and it’s easy to see why it has caught on. However, it is possible that customers now expect a CAD design, so if you produce architectural and design drawings by hand, you may be missing out.

Customers who have had a kitchen or other fitted room designed using CAD technology will often be great advocates of the process. They will feel much more involved, and have a better understanding of the process, how their room will look and how everything is going to be in real life. This can make it much harder for them to go back to hand drawn plans. If you want to get your fair share of the market and attract in new, modern customers, it might be the case that you really need to be using CAD technology.

CNC Laser Cutters and their Properties February 7, 2018

CNC lasers are used to provide cutting, engraving and shaping. They will often be used to cut metal, though they can cut other materials as well, like wood, concrete and foam. The advanced technology used will help to create an even cut and will provide an excellent result that is of the very highest quality. If you are looking for something to streamline processes and create the highest quality cutting, then think about a cnc laser cutter.

What are CNC laser cutters?

A CNC laser cutter is a sophisticated piece of technology that will last you a long time when looked after properly. CNC stands for computer numerical control, which means that the laser machine is controlled by the computer. The computer can change the design, through the use of CAD, or computer aided design. This is how a design is fed into the machine, and this is the reason why laser cutting with CNC lasers will be so accurate: it is all controlled by a highly efficient and precise computer programme. This takes away any room for human error within the process.

You will need to have the right software installed on the computer system, to control the laser cutter accurately. It can be used with any kind of computer, meaning that it isn’t a high cost piece of technology. It can be used to streamline processes, like pipe cutting and metal cutting, so that costs are lower. This is because you will need less man power when using a laser in this way.

These are some of the processes you can undertake with a laser machine:

  • Vaporistaion
  • Melt and blow
  • Thermal stress cracking
  • Scribing

There are many others as well – it will all depend on what you want to achieve with the laser technology and how you go about this.

Why invest in lasers? 

Lasers are the future of industry – especially CNC laser cutters. Nothing can rival the power of a laser, to complete cutting and engraving processes in such a short amount of time and with such precise results. Lasers are going to put you at the cutting edge of technology within your industry.

If you choose to invest in lasers, it will save you money over time. Of course, the laser is going to be a big investment, but you will no longer have to outsource processes that can be completed using your in-house laser machine. If you do decide to outsource anything, it will be a lot less. When you have a laser machine installed, you will be streamlining the processes you use to make it easier for member of staff. This is good news for your profits and margins, as you will be able to make more product in less time. That can only be a good thing.

Make sure you keep your laser cutter well maintained, and it will keep working well for years to come. Speak to the manufacturer about servicing packages to ensue it remains in excellent working condition and meets legal safety standards.

The Responsibilities of a Landlord December 28, 2017

Landlords certainly do not have any easy life. There are so many responsibilities held by landlords – if you want to make good money from it, you have to make sure you are fulfilling all of your legal obligations. Here are some of the things you must do as a landlord:

  • Check all wiring, gas and electrics inside the property are safe. This will need to be done on a regular basis, and work must be carried out by someone qualified.
  • Make sure tenants can get in touch with someone during an emergency. Give them an emergency number to call and make sure it is always monitored.
  • Check the property is fire safe. You must have a working fire alarm when the tenant moves in, though it is then their responsibility to check it. Make sure you understand the rules around fire doors, extinguishers and fire blankets, and have the right equipment in place.

Designing Urban Environments – the Job of a Town Planner November 26, 2017

A town planner sits somewhere between an architect, a scientist, a designer and an environmental consultant. They need to have a wide breadth of knowledge and take many different things into consideration when planning a town and regenerating a space, making it fulfil its potential. It is a difficult yet rewarding job that would suit someone who has a scientific mind.

Getting into town planning is usually best done via a university degree. If you already have a degree in something else, it may be possible to take an MA and gain the qualifications you need instead. Look through prospectuses and see what is available to you.

It may be possible to get into this area without a degree, though it will be more challenging. Look into government and local council jobs, and see if you can work your way up to a position within the environmental and planning departments.
