The transition from analogue to digital visualization poses questions that
encompass the traditional investigation of relationships between geometric
representations and built form, as well as issues such as a unified theory of
architectural representation, the relationships between analysis and visualization
and the role of abstraction in the structure of a representation. In addition to
theoretical investigations, the utilization of new possibilities in architectural
visualization requires technology and knowledge transfer from areas other than
computer science. The integration of such transfers suggests flexible, modular
approach which contradicts the holistic, integral principles of computer-aided
For this reason, and because not always is arranged the best possible documentation, we consider that the majority of vectorisations
they exist in the market don’t plenty satisfied our needs as teaching staff of graphic expression and CAD, althoug we can always be
using the same systems of projection or codified representations, it is imposed a lot of times to interpret acording the context the
different signs and graphic registers used.
We know experimental applications that go beyond, they even arrive to generate a 3D model from a lifted hand draw that represents
three orthogonal projections of it, but it isn’t less certain that its utility is restricted to fields very specialised and the option that we
propose, there is not knowledge at least to us that it exist; commercially speaking.
Our porpose has been to develope a symple metedology of vectorisation but adapted to the special idiosyncrasy of the needs of an
architecture student that with frequency for his formation requires to generate with CAD models 2D and 3D of architectural projects from
the information contented in magazines, and with them create several formas analysis.
The most important difference in the matter to other systems is the interactivity of the procedure that let personify the exit file, even the
wide diversity of graphic registers that it exist in the entrance, being the user only once has to identify and interpret the signs to detect,
and then the process is realized automatically to any plant of the building or equivalent projection.
