This term we have successfully completed teaching our first class using CADplanners Visio Software. With the assistance of CAD plans by CADplanners, our students experience creating CAD plans in BOTH indoor venues & outdoor sites. These sites & venues include, Randwick Race course, Hilton Hotel, Harbours Edge, Wollongong Entertainment Centre, Bennelong Lawn plus some other local Sutherland shire venues & sites. They have 1000’s of venue & site plans in stock (see website for list) and are happy to tailor plans to suit the college areas.
The program needs Microsoft Visio to work and we had to load this program per computer, from memory it cost $90 per computer and is ordered through normal IT TAFE procedures. We placed CAD program on the Student (P) drive and as long as the computer has Visio the students can use it – our library is one such place which worked out really well for students to use in other subject assessment tasks. CAD planners charge a one off set up fee & then an annual fee (1st year free). They have kept the prices extremely affordable as they are well aware of the flip side for their company.
I urge you to have look at the demonstration video on the CAD planners website. The CAD planners team is small but effective. Jay Laybutt & David Perry are the directors and Zambella Fotis is the marketing co-ordinator.
I job share as an Events Co-ordinator at Zest Waterfront Venues @ The RMYC Point Piper, we have been using CAD for years. See our website for samples. www.zest.net.au
