Architectural design involves: Creating a preliminary design, schematic designing of laying out mechanical, electrical, plumbing, structural, and architectural details, creating construction documents, etc. Advance CAD knowledge is an essential & foremost requirement for Architect at each and every step.
Revit vs. 3Ds Max
For Architecture, Revit is perfect (in compare to 3ds max at least) and it can generate excellent results for concept modeling, constructions documentation, Bills of Quantities and 3ds max could supplement it with taking it to next level of renderings, walk thoughts, animation etc.
Industrial Expert Words
Engineers In this age, when everything is moving towards digitization its highly recommended that you keep yourself up to date with the latest technologies, especially in the engineering designing where everything is designed using the software. Learning CAD will help to open up many more avenues other than the regular engineering jobs.
It’s a harsh reality these days that Mechanical, Civil & electrical engineers are having very less opportunity to get the jobs as a fresher. Adding practical skills and some extra abilities with your academic will help you stand out.
A civil engineer must be proficient with two things 1st the designing software (drafting & advance 3d modeling) usually AutoCAD latest version & Revit is preferred. 2nd PPM: Project planning management should be learned to prepare the CPM/PERT chart usually preferred for bigger projects.
