Stone Design Software by New World Stoneworks

June 16, 2009

This new software module installs to run within a CAD program and provides an intuitive drop-down menu that specifies every detail of natural stonework during the pre-construction design.

New stone design software offers a plug-in that enables architects to design and render the exact stone pattern for a project. Once the design is complete, the file is exported to New World Stoneworks, where natural stones are shaped with water, exact to the architect-approved rendering.

The new software module installs to run within the architect’s CAD program and provide an intuitive drop-down menu that specifies every detail of natural stonework during the pre-construction design phase rather than leaving stone design to chance in the field. Architects are able to work through the details, such as pattern, stone sizes, mortar joint size, color blends, and edge finish, then view a photographic sample board of each resulting stone combination to achieve the exact look desired. With this information, the software then creates a custom pattern that is generated within each area of the drawing where stone is applied. Unlike a repeating hatch graphic, the pattern is a live file in which individual stones can be edited and moved.
